M. de Sousa looks like the real deal currently ranked 17th in the 2018 New England rankings all those ranked above him I believe are going higher most to Big 5 Conferences.

Saw we just offered Kawanise Wilkins. A JUCO with 3 years left. I have seen this guy mentioned before and believe he would be a good get.

 

He is listed at 6'6, shoots well and has good athleticism. He was on the radar of some very good schools before he got hurt. Also plays pretty good Defense and rebounds as well.

Real good size.

Would love to see a big that can shoot the three. I think the last one we had was Brent Wilson.

We've had a few stretch guys but I'm not sure if any were *great* shooters. Dallas was a 3pt shooting forward (not swingman)...Devlin was supposed to be.

Big body for a guard. I like it. A bit interesting to see a new offer out to a backcourt guy. With two know scholarships left..figured we'd be exclusively looking at interior players. Perhaps the staff already knows someone is transfering..or they're simply preparing for something that is often inevitable for just about every team each year.

 

Backcourt:

Cremo

Nichols

Campbell (could also be a 4 in a small line-up)

Clark

Cochran

Healy

Rizzuto

de Sousa

Fruscio (wo)

 

Frontcourt:

Conway

Hank

Lulka

In some interview..maybe the Basketball Weekly show..Coach Brown mentioned that Lulka has the chance to be that type of player.

I belive this latest kid is a 3/4 in the mold of Charles.

Remember Devlin developed severe back issues while at UA.

 

I heard CB make a statement that Lulka was skilled and compared him somewhat to brent Wilson but I'm not quite sure what that meant.

Yeah we will find out once he is on the court. Mike Rowley supposedly had an outside shot when he was brought in and that obviously never developed.

Interesting..thanks. Size wise definitely similar. Listed as a SG. And has 107 3PTA in 33 games. Rebounds the heck out of the ball..9.4rpg. Maybe one of those guys who can fit multiple roles.
