On the surface, St. John’s has an awesome roster heading into 2018-19. There are a few tremendous building blocks for a successful campaign on the team, including superstar Shamorie Ponds and the potential addition of another star guard in Mustapha Heron. However, the issues with the roster arise when looking further down the depth chart. After the top four or five guys on the team, there are a lot of question marks surrounding unproven players, especially in the frontcourt.

While this might be seen as a weakness of the team, it is also possible to look at it as a source of potential for a star to arise. Even though it is unlikely that he is a starter during this freshman campaign, incoming recruit Josh Roberts could emerge as an excellent depth option for head coach Chris Mullin. At 6-foot-9, he will provide plenty of size for the team and can function as either a power forward or a center.

As a player, Roberts is at his best when hovering around the point. He is able to use his size and athleticism to sky for rebounds on either end of the court and either perform an outlet pass or finish off second-chance opportunities. In addition, he projects as a solid shot-blocker at the college level. Roberts may not be a starter right away but minutes are there for the taking as a reserve big man. Could Roberts be the guy to swoop in and snag them?

Typos are alive. Otherwise, it may prove out. I recall a couple highlights with Roberts skying high and slamming it down. Let’s go Johnnies.

I was told though that the only reason we aren't #CLOSING on recruits was that we aren't winning yet. That's 2 four star 2019 recruits each for DePaul, Nova, Butler and Xavier, with Creighton and Providence with one each. We continue to lay low in our favorite place, the dreaded #FriendZone.

The #ClownShow rolls on...

ATTENTION:

Major updates were made to the servers / software hosting redmen.com. There was also one significant change to the website this week to address keeping up with current standards and practices.

It has now become standard practice for all websites to be served as https (as opposed to the original http).


A couple of years ago I enabled https on the site as optional but as of today, the site is forcing https. Any link coming into the site should be automatically converted on the fly and you should not have to do anything on your end.

However if you do notice recent problems, please contact me directly via email: webmaster@redmen.com or via private message on the site.


Also if you have forgotten your username and/or password here are two links to address that (the links only work if you are not currently logged in):
