Another 2020 offer to a 6'6 wing player. He was a 2019 in high school (in Arizona) with few offers and decided to take a prep year at Mt. Zion Prep in MD. His father bounced around a bit in college, but did play 1 year at Butler and averaged 9.4 points.

2 more 2020 PG offers. Something just doesn't seem right to me.

10/12/2019 - 2020 PG Luis Rolón (6-1, -, 2★) has received an offer from Massachusetts.

I can't force myself to devote any more energy to FB, so here's more BB news:
10/13/2019 - 2020 SF Mykell Robinson (6-6, 190, 2★) has received an offer from Massachusetts.
10/13/2019 - 2020 SF Jeremiah Oden (6-8, -, 2★) has received an offer from Massachusetts.
Both are doing a post grad year at Sunrise Christian Academy, which I think is in Kansas. Oden has a bunch of offers, some from P5 schools so it's a bit intriguing that we got in on him at this late date.

Sounds like a good pickup...and we are getting deeper and deeper, especially in the backcourt and on the wing. Means one more besides Djerry will be gone after the season.

I read a couple of comments in the last week that said he was our top choice of all of the legit offers we had out there. How did we get him, it pays to have connections:
