This McNeal guy looks like a potential defensive liability the question would be is he better or equal to Justin Jenifer and I would have to say no. These are roster plug ins but so far there's been a definite decline from what we've had with all the playing time on the table we need a more definite splash forecasting these kinds of players is somewhat depressing.. the guys currently on roster I just hope thier working thier tails off bc we are gonna need a good first and last yr with JC and JB
I agree. The players arenít good or exciting but this late, there isnít Many options. You arenít getting a game changer. Hopefully itís enough for a fun year and we see an uptick in talent Iím the future.

Yup, we got a solid 4 year guy (MAW), a guy who may develop into a star (Jeremiah Davenport) and a couple of mystery guys who don't look promising (Vogt, McNeal), but might turn out better than they look. Unfortunately this late in the year it's hard to do much better. It would have been nice to have Samari (who'd I'd say is a potential star) but it is what it is.

We've still have a chance to be very good this year. Need Cumberland, Williams and Scott to carry the load, Diarra to be at least an average starter and a few other guys (Moore being the one I most hope for) to step up. Hardnett and Prince have a lot of potential and a year to adjust to the college game, they may become our next biggest contributors after the 5 above.

Adding Jaevin would be huge as well, but I've started to give up hope on him.

We wasn't looking to replace JJ or Broome this season anyway. Considering we picked up two new freshman I'll gladly take we got back over what we lost. LJ wasn't go he anything special this year at all. Brooks is main lost but diarra ceiling is higher anyway. Just filling out roster for once is a positive for me. I still see 3 or 4 all conference players on roster

Watching highlights of MAW...looks like he has good handles & not afraid to go to rack - if he's 6'3", he's playing with a whole lot of giant dudes....6'1" seems more realistic - hard to tell from video

If you were watching his aau tape then it was a bunch of giant dudes because thatís the Nike circuit which is obviously the best aau you can get, also heard from chad on 1530 that he has a 6í7u wing span so 6í3 sounds right

Per reliable sources this is not from Jaevin Cumberland. Heís not yet out of play, but nothing real in the works as of now. Meaning this has to be Sorolla. He also followed Brannen on Twitter, for what itís worth.

The BCJ commitment signal is up.....who is it this time? I am praying that it is Jaevin but likely going to be Sorolla.

Still no dancing bearcat. Is it possible this is Nsoseme coming back? After he declared to transfer we haven't really heard about any possible destination for him and from a UC perspective he would be a much better guy to have than Sorolla.

The other guy who might be possible is Tevin Mack of Alabama. There was talk of a super secret guy being a possibility and Mack is likely that guy. We couldn't talk about him because he didn't declare as a transfer until after he withdrew from the NBA draft.

Just throwing out ideas because I really hope it isn't Sorolla.
