Will Herndon was 6'3 and I think he did ok. Didn't Dayton do really well a few years ago when their biggest guy was like 6'7?? Plus I think Nova has done ok running 4 guards..

Will the Thrill could sky! I think many of opponents were shocked to see how high he jump and how well he rebounded. A great undersized "power forward".

I think we can conclude that we have serious interest in Easley and if he commits then someone won't be here next year. I am NOT trying to open up debate on who, just stating the obvious.

McCall seems like hes ALL-IN right now for Easley. I believe that Easley and his father acknowledge that as well. I would not be surprised if he commits right after his January visit.

Watched some film on Easley. We should be very excited by the prospect of him becoming a Minuteman. Seems like he could play a similar role to CJ by being a matchup nightmare and penetrating the paint. Just more athletic and a way nicer jumper than CJ.

I have enough faith in McCall to make the right choices to move the team in the right direction for the long-haul. If someone wants or needs to leave, then so be it.

^yup, plus academics may play a role in this stuff too. Could be a number of factors, some we know nothing or little about

Also, its the first NE winter for some of the transfers and that alone can scare some away.

If you commit to UMass then decommit because of snow I need to check your transcript because you’re an imbecile.

It also says something about mental toughness. I love FL players who stick it out here, they won't quit when things get tough.
