Looks like Jamel Horton committed today. 

I've heard UA really wanted him, big physical PG. Beat out SBU and UMBC who fought tooth and nail for him.

Biggest thing is it looks like he can beat someone off the dribble.  Which is great . Not sure I love the 39.8 percent fg percentage.  Also being 6'4 he can play the SG postion with no problem .

Need some more of that...especially at the wing. Also need at least one legit big man...preferably 2. All the focus right now has to be on rebuilding the front court which is really a mess if we are being honest.

This kid is a stud and yes exactly what UA needed. No more cremo and softy players, back to athletic hungry type players! Great get by staff!

JUCO guard Jaylon Homes has announced he'll make a decision on April 15th. He's down to us, Wright State, Western Michigan, Portland, and Towson.

Jaylon homes would be a steal. Another playmaker who fits the need of finding more guys who can creat off dribble. Only chance we have is if he wants somewhere he can play right away. Fingers crossed.

Here is what I see currently:

  • Guards
    • Handle the ball, penetrate, run the offense
      • JoJo Anderson (Injured last season)
      • Rian Carter (Walk-On - Injured last season)
      • Will Amica (will be a Freshman)
      • Jamel Horton (JUCO Transfer)
    • Shooters
      • Cam Healy
      • Antonio Rizzuto
    • Wing/Combo
      • Trey Hutcheson
      • Sam Shafer
  • Forwards
    • Power Forward
      • Adam Lulka
    • Center
      • Brent Hank
  • Breakdown
    • Freshman - 1 (Amica)
    • Sophomore - 2 (Hutcheson / Shafer)
    • Junior - 6 (Carter, Horton, Healy, Rizzuto, Lulka, Hank)
    • Senior - 1 (Anderson)
    • Available Scholarships - 4 (3 if Carter gets a ship)

So with 3 or 4 scholarships left, it is pretty obvious what the team needs at this time: BIGS!

Current Options for Bigs:

  • Convince deSousa or Doherty to return
  • JUCO Recruits - Offers to people 6'6" or taller
    • Simeon Kirkland - 6'10" (VC says PF)
    • DeMarcus Morris - 6'8" (VC says SF)
    • DeAndre Robinson - 6'6" (VC says SF)
    • Meikkel Murray - 6'6"  (VC says SF)
    • Jakorie Smith - 6'6" (VC says SF)
    • Arecko Gipson - 6'6" (VC says SG)
    • Isaac Chatman - 6'6" (VCC says SG and 4-stars)
  • HS Recruits - Recruits to people 6'6" or taller
    • Shane O'Dell - 6'6" (VC says SG)

The recruiting team really needs to step up and find some bigs! In my perfect scenario: deSousa stays to play the 4, We get 1 skilled Grad transfer, 1 skilled JUCO, and 1 HS recruit all bigs.
