^ Glad to see that Preston is back and that Javohn is here debunking all of the transfer rumors. Still worried about the frontcourt, but wow are we strong at the guard and wings.

I don’t see Javohn in any of those pics or am I going crazy?

Edit: Nevermind, he is not but he IS on the updated official roster haha

Guy with a walking boot caught my eye. I'm told that's a new walk on, but didn't get any other details.

Former Fairfield wing John Kelly has enrolled at UMass and will be reunited with his older brother Rich, who committed to the Minutemen back in April.

John is a 6-7 forward that can really shoot it. Has battled with injury to start career but the ability is there!

Major props to @CoachMattMcCall for taking a chance on a kid that most wouldn’t have given the time of day. John is a great kid with a great mindset and work ethic. Redshirted as a freshman and was injured as a sophomore but if healthy he can add shooting & length to any squad!

^ Maybe that's who Mike noticed in the walking boot. I don't expect much, but it's depth and a little height. Here's his bio from Fairfield, where he saw very little action:
Before Fairfield
John Kelly joins the Fairfield University men’s basketball program after spending his senior season at Willison Northampton School. Prior to the 2018-19 season, Kelly spent a year at Cheshire Academy after attending Fairfield Prep for his freshman and sophomore campaigns. He is a two-time Class AA All-NEPSAC player, earning honorable mention as a junior at Cheshire Academy before collecting a spot on the Class AA All-NEPSAC team as a senior at Willison Northampton. He also garnered accolades at Fairfield Prep as he was placed on the New Haven Register All-Area team in 2016-17.

What? Now we're gonna have three Kellys? I hope they all get on the court at the same time once in a while just for a laugh. Any suggestion of other Kellys who are available?

OK, you asked so here's a list. If you filter by "Status" there are 6 Kellys. There's also a transfer from Sam Houston St. named Kelly who's available. :lol:

Just once can I get a team photo where not just Noah, Dbaji, TJ, Kolton and DD are recognizable!

Not much "love'' here for us. They don't think much of the transfers, impact, or breakout players(Weeks & Buttrick) . . recruiting's gone south again.
