KAEO: John Buggs III

Post by Jackson96 » Tue Nov 20, 2018 10:51 am

He's announcing tonight and it sounds like we've got a pretty good shot, so I figured he deserves his own thread.

OK. I'll bring this up again. Thomas replaces Holloway. Our scholarships are filled.

Santos replaces ? If Buggs commits, he replaces?

I have speculations as we all do, but after last night my opinion may have changed. I will stand fast about 1 thing, nobody can replace LP so I pray he does not grad transfer.

Lots of things can happen, some guys might want to leave, some struggle with grades, or some just recruited over and see the writing on the wall. No way it's already determined or the team chemistry would go to hell. Just have to let it play out

And the coach can suggest that someone leave because they are not going to get much playing time.

Think he’s a bit of an under the radar guy. Played at a small school in Louisiana I believe and is now doing a post grad year at PSA (getting some but not a ton of minutes I think). Supposed to be a pretty good shooter (scorer really) and a pretty good athlete who gets after it.

Also think he’s a high academic kid (was looking at Brown)...

I feel like we've been getting a lot of "under the radar" guys. I know they won't all be highly rated, but we're competing a lot with the BUs and Arkansas Little Rock's of the world.

Here's an article on Buggs and UMass recruiting. I don't know anything about the source/writer.

^ The writer follows HS/Prep basketball in New England very closely.

If it’s that Mike Yagmin guy that was at NERR he always seems to be a little over the top with his evaluations....
