    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    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

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

    Play Fobbs at the 3: Timberlake & Battle at the 2

    2019 Basketball Offers

    A little bit of info that may not mean anything, but I’m bored at the moment...Jamon Battle, SG out of Virginia, just started following, & is being followed on Twitter by one of our assistants. The twist is that per verbalcommits, Battle earlier eliminated us from consideration. He also recently visited Hofstra. Does this mean we’re back in play? If Hofstra wants him, he must be pretty good, given their success with guards under Mihalik.

    P5, as I predicted

    2019 Basketball Offers

    Well, there’s only like 700 D1 transfers in the pool, so presumably we can get 2 good ones

    Right, I’m just simply saying it struck me as odd we’d be looking at a PG, given the configuration of our current roster. Now if we offered, that would be different

    I was wondering if maybe this was a sign Dottin is moving on, but there’s nothing on his Twitter stating that, though he hasn’t posted anything for about 3 weeks. Is there a deadline for entering the portal?
