Two years ago, Xavier made a move for their future hiring assistant coach Travis Steele to take over as the program’s head coach. Since the move, he’s become one of the more impressive recruiters in the Big East.
That continued with his 2020 class, bringing in three impressive four-star recruits, led by top-rated signee Dwon Odom who has been committed for over a year.
