Recruiting - 2020

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any updates on the last ship? A couple interesting offers out there....

DeMarcus Morris, 6'8" PF and Christian Hinckson, 6'7" SF are the two most likely targets on verbal commits, but it seems that VC doesn't seem to have as up to date info this season.

Grad transfer Taurean Thompson might be my top target based on who is publicly immediately eligible in the transfer portal, but some other interesting names are: Kodye Pugh, Gorjok Gak, and Jeriah Horne. All of those guys would probably go higher, but any of them could make an impact in the AE.

Jarvis Doles, a 6'9 PF from Drexel has cut his list to four schools and will decide in the next few weeks. Albany, Alabama A+M, Robert Morris  and Alcorn State are the final four. Doles is a grad transfer with two years left to play.

Definitely fills the teams biggest need with size. Looks like he only played 5 games last year. I am guessing he was injured? 

Started 10 games as a freshman, and came off the bench as a sophomore. Only averaged about 11 minutes per game throughout his career.  "Per 40 minutes" and "per 100 Poss" stats actually look pretty good. Probably won't be a star as the CAA isn't that much of an upgraded league, but I have to imagine he would be a huge help to the team if he is healthy considering the current roster construction. UA is probably pretty attractive to him considering there is nothing to stop him from getting lots of playing time except himself.

So 3 guys that are traditional "big" sizes at 6'8" or higher. It doesn't really matter much in the AE, but the non conference and any potential post season could be tough against bigger teams.

If healthy, all 3 should get significant time. I am hoping Hank can add a little offensively this season. He has the body. Lulka showed a lot before his injuries, and Doles showed promise in the CAA.

I'm already excited for this season, but need to keep expectations low. On paper they have the talent to be the top team in a "Lambless" AE, but with most of the team retooled again it's probably anyone's guess.

Looks like we've added SF William Kondrat to the roster as a non-scholarship player. Kondrat is transferring in from Niagara Community College. If I'm reading it right, I think Kondrat went to the same high school as Travis Charles, so I like him already.

We'd be talked about as recruiting Shane O'Dell at one point. He's a freshman at St. Rose. In his first game yesterday against one of the better D2 teams in the country - 23 points, 8 rebounds and 5 blocks. 

We could have used some of that a little further up Western Ave. last night.

Albany looks like the best choice to me.....
