Its a good school.. but not a good school like Stanford (ranked #6 in the US) is a good school.. or Notre Dame (#17) is a good school... or Duke (#8) is a good school or Georgetown (#21) is a good school or Virginia (#24) or Michigan (#29). All these teams ran in the NCAA cross country meet this Fall and give out athletic scholarships. I'm unaware of Furman qualifying for NCAAs in XC ever.. or at least not since the mid 70s. I'm unaware of a Furman track athlete ever individually qualifying for nationals in track either.. although I could be wrong. Curious decision.. athletically and academically. Guess he just wants a small college experience close to home.

And yes, Furman does have a new coach that could be the appeal. Robert Gary... 2 time steeple Olympian and former coach at Ohio State. He brought with him Jeff See as an assistant... a 3:35 1500M talent who ran at THE Ohio State University also. Maybe Josh, with quality coaching, will be on the ground floor of a new US distance running power at Furman?

I don't think Riech's track times really indicate just how good he is, he had a great XC season and I expect him to have an web better track season. Congrats to him and Furman for another stellar recruit!
