KAEO Josh Cohen

Time to start the official thread for Josh Cohen. UMass bound!

Comes to us from St. Francis PA. Just finished his 4th year in college, 3rd playing, after redshirting in 2019-20.

Two.

The sky is not falling after all and we can compete with P5s for recruits. Better luck next time Iowa.

^ Two years left.

Huge addition. I think he is perfect for how Frank wants to play offensively. And it limits how much we need from Wildens "No Knees" Leveque.

Well ya know, we have a secret top hedge fund guy. Hedge funds don't exist in Iowa.

But seriously, after the recent departures this is HUGE! I think that Josh Cohen will make an impact at UMass no doubt about it. Excited for the new crew coming in.

Judging in his stats alone, he’ll probably be our best player next year. Look at his game log from this season:

https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... josh-cohen

21 & 7 vs the Bonnies
18 & 10 vs OSU
18 & 7 vs Butler
40 & 9 vs Hawaii
30 & 9 vs Miami

Etc etc.

All on efficient shooting & being the focus of the opponents’ defense. Very impressive.

Based on the stats, I'm loving this. Looks like he's going to be a great presence inside - good FG%, good rebounding numbers. Blocks a shot occasionally. 2.5apg, that's really good for a big guy. Looks like he gets to the line a lot, wish he shot over 70% there, but I bet he's a hard worker who can get there.

Kind of an unnecessary stray for Wildens to catch here

Just a joke given the double knee surgeries he just underwent. I am actually really happy he is coming back but it is very important that we don't have to reeaaally rely on him being healthy the entire season.

That is a very good center tandem for the A10.

This is a great get. Right type of kid who produces. Haven't offset the loses yet, but this is definitely a big step in the right direction!

Stats be damned, does this guy fit the Frank Martin style of play? I say yes. Welcome aboard Josh!

Some great quotes from Cohen in this article. Let's see if he can back it up. Let's go!

A great stat for a center, his assist to T/O ratio is 1.5 to 1. Love a big who can pass and doesn't turn it over. Seems like Frank's kind of player.
