    D1 Transfers from Verbal Commits

    Exactly. I meant to mention that. It doesn’t appear, at least according to verbalcommits, we recruited him out of HS. UMBC & UMES did though.

    Aluma is from the eastern shore. He attended Stephen Decatur

    D1 Transfers from Verbal Commits

    Another couple of transfers being followed on Twitter by one of our coaches. Mitchell Seraille, a 6’8 forward who is transferring from Stephen A. Austin. Shot 59% from the field, 4 boards a game & 1 blocked shot a game. Averaged 18minutes a game last season. He’s following our coach back on Twitter. The other is a 6’9 forward from Wofford names Keve Aluma. He shot 66% from the field, averaging 7 points & 7 boards a game. Not following our coach back on Twitter at the moment
  6. Last week
  7. And going 1 overall in the MLL draft? Team has studs
  8. Goodrich taken 3rd overall in Paul Rabil's new pro league draft last night, Woodall selected 4th overall. In all likelihood we will never have two players as dominant at their positions as there two stars.

    I would think his chances of significant minutes at Georgia as a freshman would be remote; either deep on the bench or a redshirt. Don’t know about where he’d stand with the other schools. It is possible that his being from MD could be a big intangible in our favor. OTOH, some kids want to get away from home. We should find out in the next few weeks.

    Just because those schools offered him, doesn’t mean he’s a good fit. They might want to redshirt him to put on weight. Our main strength is that his family can drive to see him in less than an hour, I don’t know if he would get any playing time as a freshman at that weight but in two years with some work in the weight room, he could replace Tunstall as the rim protector.

    I read on the U St. Louis message board (or maybe the Charlotte board) that he grew 3 inches from HS to prep school. Apparently, he was nothing special in HS; 9 points & 6 boards a game, but the year at prep school was a blessing for him. Supposedly, he’s got a nice mid-range (12-16 feet) shot & even has 3-point range. He needs to add some bulk, but he certainly has upside, both on offense & as a rim protector on D. Now the question is can PS beat out a P5 (Georgia) & some legit mid-high majors (St. Louis, Charlotte, St. Bonaventure & UMass). I’m a born skeptic, but we’ll see. I believe sometimes a program like ours has to “steal” a recruit who’s being pursued by bigger programs.

    He’s rail-thin but has some skills for a big

    We’ve officially offered Maidoh, per a tweet on his Twitter account from about 35 minutes ago.

    We’ve got some stiff competition, but I did notice, fwiw, that he’s from PG County.

    D1 Transfers from Verbal Commits

    All are legitimate concerns ‘88. However, we pay cost of attendance, and that evens the playing field for the west coast transfers. Paying COA is a huge advantage at the CAA and MM level.

    D1 Transfers from Verbal Commits

    Agreed; it’s a crapshoot. But I don’t see us getting the kids at the other end of the spectrum-those who’ve had success at the LM-MM level, who now want to move up to a HM or P5 program. The more I think about it, the more I come to believe 1 D1 transfer per recruiting class is enough. Ideally, I’d prefer more HS kids, with a transfer sprinkled in, rather than the other way around

    D1 Transfers from Verbal Commits

    It’s not easy to find guys who went to P5s and averaged 2ppg who can be legit at this level. You might wind up with Benimon or AJ Astroth.

    D1 Transfers from Verbal Commits

    You’re not far off. The other day, I counted the number of transfers ass’t coach O’Connell was following on Twitter. It was 70-75. Presumably that number has gone up since then. I mean guys from all over the country. Maybe 1/3 are following him back, give or take. Seems like we’re casting an awful wide net. I can’t imagine a kid from 2,000 or more miles away, who we didn’t recruit out of HS, is coming here. I’ve also come to the belief that, as far as D1 transfers, we’re probably not going to get a kid who averaged 10ppg or more at the school he’s leaving. Those kids don’t want to make a lateral (or maybe even a downward) move; they want to move up to a high-major or P5. The kind of guy we will have a chance at is a kid who didn’t succeed at the school he’s leaving (numbers game, not seeing eye-to-eye with the coach, so on & so forth) & who wants to go to a school where he can be a bigger fish in a smaller pond. It would also help if we recruited the kid out of HS, and/or he has local ties

    Marco Anthony, a Virginia guard, is also in the portal and PO is following him. If there are 700 transfers and 400 who have not committed yet, I'm guessing we're following close to half of them. https://virginiasports.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=249

    Well, if he’s a guard, & Hofstra wants him, he’s gotta be good

    Fobbs is a 3 and sure, if we can get him, that would be a nice luxury to have. Justin Harper was following him because he's also a great football player in Va. Another spectacular athlete with a 39-inch vertical and 4.53 speed.
