Dave Telep says UMD's new staff knows and understands JA committed to UMD because of Gary, he was a "Gary Guy" and due to his relationship with Rob Eshan. Telep says UMD staff has been notified by JA that he is no longer considering UMD (which seems unlikely that he's not even considering UMD anymore?) and the current staff is not under the illusion they have much of a chance to bridge the relationship gap. JA and his Dad visited the UVA campus last week as reported and publicly UVA feels the situation will resolve itself in there favor (Telep also added JA had interest in UNC--but they haven't offered him). Telep said he expects an announcement in a few days and that UMD is now moving on Arnaud Moto and Telep believes that JA already has an agreement in place with UVA; with the only caveat being Eshan's potential move to V. Tech--which is supposed to be announced in the next week.
Who knows exactly how tuned in Telep is and its conjecture until its confirmed and resolved either way, but it sure sounds like JA is off the board?
