Nope, they’re not going with who you think they’re going with…
It’s the guys from Baltimore who were tapped on the shoulder to supply this up and coming team (most likely for the next 3 years), and not the boys from Long Island City.

It looks like STX is giving them special customization options to work with, just like some of their D1 programs.
