Oh, Luis. I saw Ruiz and could only think of the boxer. Lol.

Yes, he is a very interesting prospect. Fingers crossed 🤞

Curt Lewis announcing this week per his Twitter page: https://twitter.com/curtlewis10_/status ... 9YVHA&s=19

Don't think he picks us, but I'd really like him and another big guy w potential.

RJ Luis has canceled his OV with Kansas St! Gotta believe that is a great sign for UMass!!!

Was it a secret visit? No mention of it anywhere that I could find on social media.

Video of him on YouTube looks pretty interesting. Probably a better option than Amadasun, anyway. 3 years of eligibility left and looks like an excellent backup. Had some multiple block games in ACC, despite limited minutes. Shot about 26% on threes and not great at FT percent but could improve in both areas.

I'd like to see us grab him and Lewis.

I'm still in the camp of we need another big, so I don't want both Lewis and Luis. Just curious, who would you rather have, Lewis or Luis? I'll take either one and a big.

I would go either the freshman that isn’t looking for a ton of play time off the jump is interesting to me

Curt Lewis would be a really nice get for UMass - I think he’s definitely an underrated transfer. Was very active and made a big difference his freshmen year at EKU.

Not sure why there’s belief that he won’t choose us, we are in his final 2 - down to us and Murray State.

After announcing that he is transferring, Lewis heard from Arkansas, Memphis, and USC. Big names.

I'd like us to nab N'GUESSAN and LEWIS!!

N'Guessan would be an interesting guy to mix in with Woodley and Leveque and Lewis would be an upgrade from CJ. Would be cool if Martin's kid comes as a walk-on player for depth. We'd be stacked!

Keyshawn Bryant is still out there too...

I’m saying his game is like Dibaji but he’ has stayed healthy

David N'Guessan seems like another version of Gianni Thompson. Not sure if that's an immediate need, but all in all, the more talent on this team the better.

One transfer that intrigues me that I believe we should go after is Alex Tchikou.

He was on campus this weekend and graduated. That doesn't mean he won't be playing somewhere.
"Jack didn’t have any envy in him," Calipari said. "He was the greatest coach to ever coach here."
