i have no idea on roster issues, but the prediction is UMass hoops headed to the Elite 8 in near future (not committing for this season and add will that with a few late breaks, they could find themselves in a Final Four)

Lofty predictions indeed. UMass will have four players known to be competitive at this level, and seven at various levels of experience, skill, athleticism, etc. How this all comes together remains to be seen. Expect growing pains. My hope is for 20+ wins, and a team in full stride at seasons end.

I guess he has grown in the past year. Feel bad he didn't make D1 yet, but he'll get there.

Anyone want to place odds on Kante being the 12th player? He would be a nice depth piece up font and he has some talent.

Any chance that with DK on board now, that a recruit he's tied to might commit for the last spot?

If DK can get Papa Kante to commit he's a better recruiter than we thought. Papa has 19 offers, almost all from P5 teams. Isaac may come, but he probably won't get the 28-30 minute he's used to. That might be a factor in where he ends up.
