I am assuming based on the fact that he never registered for the draft or transfer portal....

Which brings the question? Are Wright, Steere or Caraher starters? What position do we see Williams playing next season? We already know Heron and Fiq are starters. Add a grad transfer as an experienced point guard and a competent center and we should be on our way to an enjoyable season.

So I guess it is a good thing when the coaching staff stays on campus after the season ends and works with the team.
Very nice to see, as everyone has previously said the biggest recruit for CMA for 2019-2020 has been secured.
A great job by the staff.
The pieces are all falling into place.

Amen. Although it’s been more like 46 and 50 years!

Man LJ Figueroa (and RJ Barrett) are awfully nice consolation prizes for us St. John's/Knicks fans! So glad he'll be back next year.

I honestly think a team made up of :
G-Thornton
G-Heron
G-Wright
F-LJ
C/F-Steere

Bench: Greg Williams, Roberts, Caraher, McGriff, Sears, Earlington,

.... could be very competitive in the Big East, and ultimately could be a better all around squad with MUCH better coaching than last year's team. I'd definitely like to see them add another big to the above roster also, but this is a dream scenario playing out based off where we were just a month ago. Kudos to CMA, and staff. So refreshing to see a staff that work their butts off, and it's paying off big time.

If I was putting together a list of top 10 returnees to the Big East, I'd add Figueroa and, possibly, Heron to the list.

Heron’s problem last year partially was due to lack of coaching. He looked confused and frustrated much of the time. Imho he’s a bit better player than he has shown. Both LJ and he can benefit from some coaching this year.
