ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – It’s been a roller coaster stretch over the last few weeks for new Lobo head basketball coach Paul Weir.
After helping Team Canada win the Under-19 World Championship, he lost an assistant coach during the recruiting season this summer.
Weir made it clear from day one he is not going to settle for anyone available to join the program. The Lobos need more size, first and foremost, but the makeup of those players is important as well.
The Lobos still have three scholarship openings to fill.
“Some aggressiveness, some toughness, unselfishness. Just a personality that reeks of passion,” Weir said about the kind of players he’s looking to recruit. “I’m hoping to find guys that are going to fight the same way, and not every player is like that.”
The first stop on Weir’s recruiting tour is Atlanta, where 80 of the top junior college players are taking part in the All-American Junior College Showcase there this weekend.
