  1. Fizulich was previously recruited by Ivy’s and PL teams, and also held a PEO from Villanova. Ketner was almost a done deal to Bryant before take a prep year at WA. Yea, both guys definitely have some skill for this level and will provide depth at practice. Question is will they be glue guys like Fruscio and others before him. I would guess yes. But Fruscio was a special breed of kid.
  2. Yep. Agreed Paper great. Let’s see them play and come together as a team. That’s the key.
  3. Looks like we just got a commitment from Aaron Reddish. Top 400 recruit, top 76 sf. 3 star player. Little bro of Atlanta Hawks star Cam Reddish. 6’7 small forward.
  4. Wow. That’s a super bizarre move. Historically bad program in a pretty weak league. ACU’s run was an anomaly. Maybe he didn’t see playing time for himself with the new group or, vice versa, we had to recruit his spot because he made it clear he wasn’t coming back.
  5. It’s official. Woodward just pulled a fast one.
  6. Did I say something funny to make you LOL? I’ve been saying doles and hutch were staying for a month.
  7. Excellent that it has been confirmed. The team looks really good right now on paper...but so do a lot of other AE teams.
  8. Totally underwhelming. Wish him the best, represented the school well...took care of his academics, and I hope he kills it out there. But this is a lateral move IMHO...CMU is not a good MAC team. Had a spurt a few years ago...but is not a traditionally solid team. Tony Barbee may pull it together again (he was wonderful at UTEP, a disaster at Auburn)...so let's see. But terrible facilities, terrible fanbase for the level of ball being played...confounding move. Would have understood a move out west, like Kai.
  9. If I were a betting man, I think most of this is correct but with my personal opinion sprinkled: if Healy stays and hank hasn’t graduAted, Hank stays. If Hank has graduated, he may move on, regardless of Healy. As for Healy, the transfer portal is a funny place this year. If this was last year, I would say Healy was 💯 gone. But with so many transfers and no matter how well he shots, Healy is coming off of the tail end of 18 months of injury to his hip. I think two seasons ago, he’s scooped up early. This season, he may be playing a waiting game for Coaching staffs to settl
  10. There is nothing wrong with the statement. Forget 1 vs 4 years. The statement is factually and grammatically correct. He is joining for the 2021-22 season. That’s a fact. NLIs are yearly renewable. in any event, too much is being read into the line, IMHO. Thar said, one and done may be the new reality.
  11. I know. Was just thinking Eli is slacking. I did one of my own when I was bored. But if we keep some of the guys who have not already transferred, we will have a special team. right now if everyone stays, we are maxed on scholarships. I’m ok with what we have if that’s the case. We have two offers out for bigs next year. if anyone else leaves, agreed...we should nab a big
  12. He’s a stud recruit for us. When I woke up and saw Coach’s tweet, I didn’t even need any coffee. Got my jolt of energy. A cornerstone player.
  13. Yep, see post above. If I had to guess, two guys that MIGHT not be back could be Anderson and Taylor. I think Anderson would likely need to go D2 to get time (not saying he's a D2 guy...he's not...but injuries have not helped him), so he may stay. If Taylor leaves, I can see a starting lineup (mere example without knowing how players progress, the offensive scheme, how players play defense in the scheme) of: Horton, Drumgoole, Perry, Doles, and Newman. That's an AE MONSTER sized athletic lineup of 6'4; 6'6; 6'7; 6'9; and 6'9
  14. We have offered at least two bigs for 2022, both freshman. For this year, we should be in a good spot if the team remains as is, plus whatever Coach DK adds with the remaining scholarships (forget what we have left). The current team, if everyone who has entered the portal (and has not signed elsewhere yet) stays: PG: Jamel Horton (2 yrs), Will Amica (technically 5 years?! don't know how the RS would work considering they all got their years back for last year); JoJo Anderson (1 yr) SG:Chuck Champion (1 yr); Ny'Mire Little (5 years...if he Redshirts); Wing/SF: Sam Schafe
  15. He was a big time recruit out of HS. Outside of an offer from Albany, his next three “lowest” offers were Vermont, UMASS, and St Bonaventure. Aside from injuries, he never had a chance at Pitt with fellow frosh Justin Champagnie taking minutes.
  16. They have the quarters already. Locked and loaded. This is about first round games only. Hence why I think they go to Albany to spread the northeast wealth.
  17. Well, if you extrapolate, it's a good chance we get games. There are 6 Fields, and no doubt based on the others considered...the article is wrong and it is Casey Stadium. From there, Hofstra is hosting the QF games...so my guess is that they are out of the equation for the first round if they are looking to "split the fan wealth" (i.e. give more fans an opportunity to watch in differing Regions). Then you are left with Denver in the West, they most assuredly will get games. In the East, you have 4 remaining venues, with 3 relatively bunched (not super close...but close from t
  18. Just received a commitment from 2021 G, Nymire Little. Tough, athletic guard from the Philly area, 6’4. Loyola and Stony Brook may have been in the mix. (I’m not a huge believer in Verbal Commits database offerings, inaccurate a lot).
  19. He committed to UC Riverside in March.
  20. Nice pickup, will be an impact athletically in the AE. If we keep Kelly and Doles, adding them to Horton, Amica, and Newman...quite a group. Still may have Champion, Schaefer, Hutch, and Taylor, which would be a very solid team.
  21. Completely works on my Iphone, and looks great. As for Android...they are having major issues in the App Store right now (Google). I am in the midst of releasing an APP and, in a bizarre turn of events as it is usually Apple that's a hold up, Google is a current nightmare. Our developers are working like crazy to fix the issues but we consistently run into barriers. After four weeks, we think it is solved. I really like the App, a lot. Good job by the Athletic Department....kudos to AD Benson.
  22. All I can say is this, and Click can confirm it: UNH may have said COVID but it was not; I knew about this over a week and half before the announcement was made, from a very inside source at UNH. I brought it up with Click like a day after our announcement.
  23. Has anyone watched Jahlil? He's good...but by no means a panacea. I have been commenting on these posts that he will be a POY favorite. That's ridiculous. Everyone needs to calm down. Jeesh.
