So we losing our 4 most athletic players, dou/Keith/Harvey/Tari. You add Davenport to this group thatís a lot of length to press. Iíll take those 5 over any team starting 5 in American

Yea none of our guys were home sick.

Most liked UC just not the coach.

That said, I want Tari back. But I do think he is still 2 years away from being a star player as his feel for the game is still growing and his handles maybe worse than octavious Ellis.

If we donít get him then I think we should absolutely go the grad transfer or transfer route with just 2 years or less of eligibility left,

I donít want To handicap Wes millerís recruiting with not many scholarships to work with.

Do we know of anybody outside the program we are targeting besides Dalen Ridgnal and Meikkel Murray?

Getting Tari back would be huge, but not getting him back wouldn't be the end of the world. It depends on who else Wes is able to land, I expect if Tari doesn't come back Angelo Allegri from UNCG becomes a target. Getting a couple big men transfers will be important.

Without Tari back we'd obviously need to add a lot of bigs very quickly, even with him back we need a lot. I believe JD is going to be playing the 3, which gives us 4 guys (assuming DDJ comes back) who can play PG or SG (DDJ, Saunders, MAW and Mason), two guys who can play SF (JD/Mason) and basically nothing at the 4/5 (JD could backup the 4 and who knows anything about Lakhin).

Don't think we will know much until Wes gets a staff set (or at least officially adds someone). Kenny Pohto is a name I've seen, but it's because Mike Roberts started following him on twitter i think. We don't even know for sure Mike Roberts is coming here.

I'm not sure Allegri should be a target no matter what happens. Doesn't really fit any of the boxes we need for players.

I'd rather take Abdulsalam if he decides to transfer. Good rebounder and slightly above average interior scorer. Probably not starter caliber but would provide good depth.

Those guys are the alpha scorer wings everyone here wants. If we can land one of them, we'll be ok next year even if all we can get is defense only bigs.

Im betting the scope of our recruiting widens as the staff is filled out.

Wes is probably running on fumes. He absolutely needs some one to help him out.

Chad's recent podcast with him is really good. He's basically been on the go since they hired him
