The above link is from Rivals.com and it tells you all you need to know. Bryce Alford committed to his father. His father is the CEO of The University of New Mexico. About as cut and dry as you will ever find in recruiting.
Coach Alford wasn't losing this recruiting battle for his talented son. In fact, he handled his entire recruitment. Bryce didn't take any of the calls from interested schools. Dad, now coach, did.
This allowed Bryce to focus on school and basketball.
He commented that he didn't have to worry about his recruitment and it took a lot off his mind.
One has to wonder how much actual effort was put into his recruitment by schools. Its hardly been a secret that Bryce was coming to New Mexico and him wanting to play for his dad much like the elder Alford played for his father, Sam.
Now, another generation of Alfords working together on the basketball court will begin in the high desert in 2013.
I contacted Coach Alford for comments regarding his son and his commitment but the NCAA has told him that he could not comment on his son.
