Re: 2020 Recruiting

How does he differ or stack up against Cairo. Seem like similar players. I dont follow the program closely anymore but does this mean they are giving up on a big. I suppose thar grad transfer will help for a year bit it seems like they need another developmental body on the block.

Re: KAEO: Sean East

I dont think coaches would force or ask anyone to leave. If I had to guess they would probably inform the there isn't a scholarship and offer a way to get financial assistance and stay. People forget Davonte's roster spot. Sorry to say that none of what you wrote is accurate. Call it what you want ...

I assume he subscribes to the belief that the West Coast is the Best Coast.

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

Casual observer. I was wondering what the ceiling is for Tre. I've heard some lofty and frankly some ridiculous comparisons and proclamations. Fan base hasn't had much to be excited about so I get it. Finally getting to watch him a little and he exceeded by expectations. I knew he was a high skill p...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

Thought some of these comparisons were crazy. Just to throw a little cold water on the parade, he reminds me a lot of Ajmal Basit. Basit problems were mental but he wasnt an elite athlete to match the hype. Good soft hands. Great touch around rim. Hi basketball IQ. Good passer. But wasnt able to ele...

Re: The "Oh, What If" team

We always overhype recruits just like weve been doing over the last two months. I dont these players would have amounted to much. Just some quick hits, Traynham apparently playes for Livingston College? Tiki wad arrested for dealing coke.. a where are they now thread might be more appropriate.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Same for TJ Weeks.

Funny some are more supportive of any potential overhyped recruit than they are of the players who are actually committed to the program.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

What do we have, 2 spots to fill? Seems like its getting to be a little late to be finding guys that want to be at UMass. Hope something breaks in our favor soon Unfortunately, the reality is that at this stage the unsigned are doing exactly what we are doing... projecting. I dont think the availab...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

I am confused. I have been reading all of the posts however did we receive LOI from all of the recruits that had given us verbals? Yes. Buggs and Santos in the fall. Mitchell and Weeks in the spring. The big man from Detroit, Jalen Thomas, bailed. All others names are still recruits/ speculation.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

For the record, the two people who watched the clip confirm what I saw. I'm all for recruiting the best talent available My comment wasn't about MAW as much as it was about the culture of overhyping the next thing and fairweather support for those who bought into the program. MAW is no PG savior, an...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Nope. More convinced than before. I think people are projecting. I stopped and studied all the Mica Adams Woods clils. He is not a creator or passer. Actually kind of terrible in shot selection. No idea where this hype comes from other than that Nebraska is Big10. But Nebraska is Big10 like Kansas f...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

I'm just not seeing how Mica and some of the new names are going to be "true" point guards compared to Buggs. Any true freshman is going to struggle. Buggs has really bought in the program. Hes a top student too. A lot of intangibles. I dont think his recruit ratings are indicative of his potential....

Re: 2019 Recruiting

I'm not that nervous. I dont think these names will be much better than Buggs and may sow some discontent. Would like to see a 5th year or Juco. But think people are overhyping some of the freshmen point guards in the mix.
