If we can land Dollar, DerMarr, and Mike R...that would be a stellar close to a coaching search. If we can expect something similar in final recruiting I will be a happy camper.

I was hoping we would save one scholly but not sure I see that happening now unless DD, VL, and RB are not on scholly.

It looks as though we are filling 13 unless Wes knows what's about to transpire.

We need 1 or 2 bigs and I still would like to see another SF to play with Newman and keep Davenport at the 4 with Hensley. We have some small guards and I think we need to keep some length on the perimeter. Not sure I want to move Madsen or McGinnis up to the 3 for small ball when Davenport is the 4.

That would give us three more spots to fill for the upcoming season if needed. I'm sure they would drop him next year if they need his spot for an incoming freshman.

I just realized McGinnis and Hensley played together at Link Year Prep. That probably played into his decision to come here. Abdulsalam and Allegri played there too.

Per Chad on his podcast, Mike Roberts moved here over of the weekend and is working in the building.

Per Chad and this article. https://247sports.com/college/georgi...ati-164736933/ Chad Dollar is confirmed as well.

DerMarr I'm not of sure of the status on. But honestly even without him Wes has blown Brannen out of the water in terms of assistant coaches. Roberts has two years at IU, Dollar has about 10 years coaching in the SEC (LSU, Georgia Tech, Auburn and Georgia) plus quite a bit of other experience.

There is also a rumor going around that Mike Rehfeldt may be returning with the monster factory as strength coach.

I am hoping Dollar and Roberts were brought in because of their experience but also hoping they have some inside tracks in recruiting a big (or two) and an impact perimeter guy.

Hopefully Dollar has built up some nice relationships over the years and can influence at least one of our remaining targets. Hoping Wes or Dollar can influence the 2nd target. And then we have to wait and see if we have additional spots opening up. If I were CWM I would probably go ahead and grab 3 more players and if we retain DD and VL then we put Banks back as walk on.

This is a great statement for the upcoming season. Everything is shaping up as it has to be earned by former and new players.

Hopefully these additions gets the wheels turning, and a different mindset from our returning players, that competition has arrived. If they want to start and contribute, they better be working and continue working their tales off.

Also, with the "Portal" I think Wes did a great job of bringing in guys that WANT to play for him, which may create player retention for years to come, vs the unknown's in the portal going to new teams for basically a 1 year tryout if so pleases.

I believe all 3 did or they had another guy on UNCG roster that went with them.

agreed, I'm less concerned about coaching experience and more concerned about recruiting. hopefully Dollar is a good recruiter, from what i've read he looks to be, and hopefully he has a pipeline of relationships for the next couple years. Roberts not sure.
