^ Just like McCall was going to go back to Florida after his first year. It's UMass Derangement Syndrome.

Yeah I saw that too. No idea if it’s true but I saw that. I’m more talking about him not getting much pub from the recruiting services while the EYBL was going on. Maybe they did and I missed it.

At any rate it doesn’t mean all that much (much like most rankings) — I just find it curious that a dude who kicked so much ass in the biggest summer grassroots event didn’t get much publicity while kicking so much ass. Happy he’s coming...sounds like a kid who can get us shots. Like shooters can never have too many of them if you ask me.

Guys guys the answer is obvious. Tre is one-and-done.
Guys this was clearly a joke. I'm disappointed at the ratio of those who understood this and those that didn't. But Umass hoops gonna Umass Hoops I guess.

Yeahhhhhh, I don't think that's the case at all.
^? Looks like a response.

Either way, we have a talented group of frosh that have high ceilings, but no they will not be heading to the NBA any time soon. My guess is the Keon theory but that's based off of no knowledge or facts.

The current (and correct) thinking is that we only want players who want to be at UMass. Count Cairo McCrory in this class:

27 points against a top tier school like Spire Academy is definitely impressive. They were nationally ranked last year lead by LaMelo Ball.

The Bergeron here has been a home run; gotta love his basketball roots and connections.

TB has made a huge difference and I think the staff as a whole has done a really good job.

^agreed. TB has been MM's best recruit, and I think Wheeler is a great addition as well

It's probably premature to say this, but this looks like the strongest assistant coaching staff we have had maybe since Cal's days.

Tyson Wheeler told me last week that UMass was still trying to find a big man for the 2020 class. How that plays out with scholarships is TBD, but I think they might add a third to this class.
