I'd rather see another big. The team has a ton of guards, and even with Campbell gone, Hutcheson makes 3 players on the roster that play that slot with deSousa and Jerotic already here as freshman.  Give me an athletic guy at 6'9" all day to strengthen the Lulka/Hank/French/Lauderdale group at the 4/5

Technically a guy like Petion, at 6'6", could play SG, SF and PF in small ball. My point was we need someone in the mid-6ft range that can play a number of positions, not a guard who is 6'2" or a big who is 7' or something.

6-9 athletic players are a rare commodity in the AE. I’d rather have an athletic 6-6 guy than a 7’ statue. But hey, try and get an athletic big man if you can.

Lauderdale will be a Sr. next year, so if there isn't another big coming we will be short staffed at the 4/5. We don't know anything about the skills of Lauderdale or French yet. Hank is huge and Fresh, but he still lacks an offensive game. Only Lulka is supposed to step into a starring role, and that is a lot to ask for a rshFreshman

I love the size the team has now, but nothing is set in stone on how any of their games will translate to the AE. This team could be solid at the 4-5, or suck.

We have another potential swing player as well in Flory, as he is 6'5" as well.

Obviously another player that size will be hard to find, but it is still the goal I would have. For 2019-20 the team will look like this:

  • Jr. Flory 6'5"
  • Fr. Hutcheson 6'5"
  • So DeSousa 6'6"
  • So Jerotic 6'7"
  • Sr. Lauderdale 6'8"
  • So Lulka 6'8"
  • So Hank 6'10"
  • Jr. French 6'11"

For most teams, Freshman don't step in right away and learn from the existing team. Lauderdale is the only one from that group that will be gone for the 20-21 team that needs to be replaced. 

Find me another athletic swing guy, or someone in the mold of a Travis Charles and I would be excited, I am just saying the target should be a young PF not a SF.

He has an A10 offer with UMass, but his only other offers are from teams we should beat on the recruiting trail. NJIT, Bing, Hartford, UML. 

Anyone know anything about him?

Tough player.   A man already. Would love to have him at our level.  He would be a game changer in the AE.  I think he’s a 15 min guy in A10.  

Very good passer.
