Iona, Montana, Mercer, Stephen A Austin

Iona's  recruiting had to take a hit when they lost one of their main recruiters recently. Jared Grasso went to Bryant to take over their HC a few weeks ago.

I'm pretty sure that's our role in those whole thing, isn't it?. We're not players and we're not coaches. We watch youtube clips and look up the 3pt percentages of our recruits. Then next year we'll d

So right now the team looks like:

  • PG: Clark, Healy, Brooks, Fruscio(WO)
  • SG: Rizzuto, Fromm
  • SF: Campbell, deSousa
  • PF: Lulka, Lauderdale
  • C: French, Hank
  • 2 Scholarships left to give

I moved Fromm from the 3 to the 2 because he is only 6'4" and I don't think that is really a 3 in the AE. I moved Rizzuto from the 1 to the 2 as the team already has 3 other scholarship PG's. I could see Healy moving to the 2 as well with his shooting. 

Honestly, on paper the team looks like it is starting to come together nicely. It will take a magician Will Brown coaching job to bring them together as a team to compete, but to me this still looks like a top 3/4 team in the AE with how bad the bottom of the league is. 

Clark and Campbell as captains? Campbell will be the only Senior?

I say grab a grad transfer big to help improve the young bigs, then convince Cremo to stay for his last year or give the final scholarship to Fruscio for 1 season and see what can be done for the follow year.

Would love to see an athletic 6'5 type wing and a 6'7+ physical big with the last two ships. As of right now...we have only 3 upper class-man. One senior and two juniors, everyone else is a sophomore or freshman. There are 5 freshman alone.

With the team so young... as of now next year's scholarships are 1 senior, 3 juniors, 2 sophomores, and 5 freshman. I'd love to see a grad transfer that can help immediately. Especially at the 4/5. Then maybe a SG with a quick release? Team currently has 4 point guards, 3 SF, 2 PF, and 2 C on scholarship.  0 SG's. at least based on positions at verbal commits.

I only included scholarships. If he was given one, it would go to 4. Not that I am in any position to say so, but I wouldn't be against Brown giving him one for his junior and or senior years. He has become a big part of the personality of the team, done media exposure for the team, and is a fan favorite. Only local kid still on the team and draws some fans. Give him a ship so we don't have to deal with the Reese Williams blogs all over again in 2 years.

They look like a couple of great kids. Welcome! Ok, if you haven’t already, check out the sports teams at Clarendon. There’s some interesting choices! Definitely a long way from upstate NY. ????

What will be most interesting to watch is the rotation and playing time with this group of young players.  Hopefully Brown and staff go 10 deep with the rotation if it makes sense.

Click I'm in total agreement about highlight tapes BUT.........

I'm just amazed how fast the staff got commitments on the perimeter especially since their main focus all season was probably was on Bigs for next season!!!!
