Doug Marrone has publicly made it a priority to use his New York City roots, buddy up with the high school coaches within the Empire State, and keep the best talent within these borders. Unfortunately, we have yet to see the big pay off.

It doesn’t necessarily mean Reddish was overrated, but we haven’t see enough of Reddish to judge him yet.
