Tea leaves say Femi visits soon & transfer goal could be a grad big, hopefully Femi, and two sit out transfers. Obviously that outcome will shape 19 recruiting. I too tire of being so transfer dependent, but,with one guy out there beating bushes, not sure what alternatives are. Hopefully if he lands sit out transfers, they are high quality. Simons & Clark come to mind.

With an interior guy like Femi added to the mix, I do believe there is a window of opportunity to “dance” but beyond that who knows. We just desperately need to have a winning, attention getting next season.

What about Precious? I thought we were in good shape with him?

The scary thing about landing a top 2019 class is if we are hoping having an NCAA tourney type top team next year will help we wont know that till mid to end of next season and by then most of the top kids will have chosen schools and unless another assistant or more other than Matt gets his butt up and starts recruiting its hard to expect any better results with high school kids. And it's not like making the NCAA's Lavins last year helped him and basically recruiting wise he had one main guy at the end heavy lifting recruiting ( Chiles ) and we are doing the same thing now

He has blown up probably beyond our reach, but let’s see how staff follows him this spring. Kansas supposedly is a tough opponent on this one.

Dachon Burke, talented shooting guard from Robert Morris & a NJ kid should be getting his release soon & is someone to watch I sense. Some twitter references that he received it already, but untrue.

Two sit out transfers again not, please.
Reading the comments It looks like Diakite, Roberts and Earlington are not going to play much next season.

Which leaves a rotation of 8 serviceable players.
Deja vu all over again.
