Is this the de Sousa commit? Or is there another announcement coming soon?

$iena offered 6'8" Sy Chatman from Minnesota. Maybe we should reach out. LMAO. He has offers from Bryant and Northeastern. If we don't like him, maybe we can get Bing, Hartford, or Maine to offer him. The America East keeps stealing their targets. No reason to let that stop now!

It's not uncommon... This is an opportunity to spend a few days at or near campus, learn more about the programs, opportunities etc. An official is about far more than basketball.

Interesting background. Was at DII Anderson in 15-16 and 16-17. Now at a JUCO in Florida for 17-18..listed as a red shirt sophomore. Only played 4 games in 15-16..so presumably earned a red shirt for that year. Averaged 11/8 for Anderson last year.

 

Offers from Florida Atlantic and NC A&T.

Interesting offer. If I had the choice I would rather go after Tayler Mattos as a big man . Maybe Mattos does not have any interest in us but has far more upside then the Juco recruit . This guy reminds me a lot of another big body player from last year and he did not see much of the court and ultimately did not work out.

We should have four scholarships open and two commits so far so they could bring in two more frontcourt players.

You are right but they both would play only center (my observation after watching them move on their highlights) . These two cannot play power forward or any other position . Would rather have 1 or 2 true centers on the roster and then fill it out with guys that can play multiple front court positions, especially when we just brought in a center.

I would just rather have 6'6 to 6'8 athletic guys. If they both come we would have really three centers .

Not every player that is brought in is going to get lots of minutes. Even in the deepest years, coach Brown's rotation never seems to be more than 8 or 9 deep.

The Recruiting really needs to focus on bigs for 18. They lose 2 major cogs after this season in Stire and Charles. We don't know what Foster will do with the team, but he will probably get a lot of minutes as well, and will be gone after this season.

We don't know how Conway, Hank, and Lulka will adjust to D1, and that is really all the team has moving forward.

I'd take them both. Worst case, you have some BIG bodies on the practice squad. 6'7" isn't prototypical center height for a center, but I wouldn't want to fight for position underneath against him at 285.
