Recruiting - 2018

Recommended Posts

So, I realize now I live about 25 minutes from South Kent. Might have to go check out a game.

Nice!

 

Make sure you wear purple if you do.

Because highlights are better than not having highlights. Malachi de Sousa is #5 in white (South Kent.)

Happy New year everyone. I know we are barely half way thru the season but an experienced coach like CB should always have an eye on next season with regards to possible JUCO recruits coming in and development of current players. That brings up our front court. Stire, Charles, and Foster are leaving so I assume Cremo, Nichols, and Campbell are starters next season leaving 2 forward spots to fill. Hank and Lulka have not and will not see a minute in a D1 game. Conway has been on the bench lately and from what we have seen he is not a power rebounder like Stire, nor has the low post moves and great mid range jumper of Charles, or the length and athleticism of Foster so is he just a role player? So who are the other two forwards? A couple of JUCO's could come in but as we have seen, they take a half season or more to acclimate to D1 ball. I realize not much can be done now with the red-shirting of the Aussies and maybe the staff is hitting JUCO games looking for a diamond in the rough? Any thoughts?

At 6-6, Campbell, de Sousa, and Cochran could probably all play some 4 in AE play.

 

I'd think the top target would be a grad transfer that can step in and get minutes immediately.

Both Rizzuto and De Sousa are scoring like crazy. On paper they look like great commitments . I think Brown will add another 1 and done player (hopefully a very good one.) And a big JUCO.

 

With the 3 redshirt freshman this year and the 2 coming in, it appears we will be stacked for years to come .

Verbal Commits says we've offered Yannis Mendy, a 6'8 juco PF. Mendy attends the same junior college, Missouri State, that Devonte Campbell did.

Looks athletic, but JUCO defense is soooo bad. The good thing is that it looks like he turns 22 in early April. That means next year he will be 23 and 24 as a senior playing against 18,19,20 year olds.

Unlike a lot of JUCO players, he seems to have had some international playing experience which can't hurt. Also, had an offer from Washington State.

Looks like he can really play and nice size...With losing Charles, Stire and Foster. There's ample playing time....

 

Not sure what his life story is considering the age.
