So...the MAAC is our wheelhouse lol


If Frank Martin at South Carolina is recruiting him that’s good enough for me. Martin is a quality coach who knows talent and has been to a Final Four.

I like the shot blocking. The kid is long. He projects as a 4
I would think and I’m ok with that if that’s what we are talking about. He’d be quicker than most 4’s. Still want to see us land some big talent in this class. Maybe this kid under the radar too; no idea.

There was an interview with TJ on here a week or so ago. Said their recruiting MO was to land exactly this type of kid, along with some jucos, and then coach them up.

We'd all like to land 4 & 5* kids, but right now, with very few exceptions, that's not going to happen. Sure we can chase that kind of recruit, but until Anderson establishes himself here I don't think we're going to get many of them. Time is going to be needed.

Yeah I don’t buy that. Mike Anderson has almost 400 wins. This is not an unknown commodity. Oates killing it at bama, Hurley at UConn, Musselman at Arkansas. I could go on. There’s no reason we should expect a protracted establishment period here. I get that CMA is more old school and I’m fine with that. I think he’s a fantastic coach. No excuses for not landing some real Upper Big East level talent here though. Even Leitao has 2 top 100 kids and he’s awful.

Seems like this kid projects to be a Josh Roberts type player. I really like Robers a lot, but we need some bigs who can step in and contribute immediately.

It appears it’s going to be tough to recruit until we start winning. Conversely, it will be tough to win until we start recruiting.

To the extent we have a season this year, I think it’s critical that we significantly exceed expectations. We’ll really find ourselves in a tough spot recruiting wise with another cellar-dweller season.
