Potential Grad Transfers

I just wanted to start a thread on some potential grad transfer possibilities for next season. I believe we will need a grad transfer 5 and maybe a point guard or a wing depending on if JB is done recruiting freshman for the 2020 class. If he is we will have 2 scholarships open, maybe more if anyone transfers or if Prince cant play. I am not a huge fan of the grad transfer route but we will need a big who can rebound and defend right away since we will be losing Scott and Vogt is not that kind of player and I don't expect Eason to come in and dominate in year one. Also the grad transfer list will grow once the season ends.

I agree that we probably need either a grad transfer or JUCO big man. Vogt does not look like he should be a starter, Eason may come in and be able to start, but I wouldn't count on it. Diarra I can see starting at either the 4 or 5 next year. Prince is the big unknown, if he can play he could be an immediate starter at the 4.

I'm not that fond of grad transfers and the grad transfers we added this year did not make me feel any better about them. But we definitely need to add more depth at the 4/5. I'm hoping for one more freshman and one JUCO/grad transfer, both bigs.

Youíre hilarious. I still donít understand the massive jump you think is there for Diarra but not for Vogt. Why couldnít Vogt develop a shot, why canít he get stronger or become a better passer. Out of all Diarra spastic actions what makes you think he has the mental toughness to make such a huge leap. But an elite post scorer has no ability to improve. Vogt is good for 20-25 a game, whether starting or from the bench.

Come on now....Vogt was a fresh surprise, but he is what he is. Vogt could have an awesome offseason but a 7 ft defensive liability will not cut it in todays AAC. A starter 7ft Tall and not averaging double figure rebounds, forget the scoring, is aliability.

Once the league adjusted to Vogt, he was and has been nuetralized as a post force. What has Vogt done to adjust to the changes....Coaches can put him in position, but he's the one who has to continue to make plays. Vogt is not strong enough yet to be a force.

Vogt has absolutely no lift, which as long as any opposing team has a more athletic big man, his shots arent going in, and may be blocked, and he is in dire need of a confidence boost.

We need Vogt to play like Iowa's Big Man, for Vogt to continue to see success.

You went pretty far with this statement. Only 32 guys are averaging 10+ rebs

Vogt is averaging 6 rebounds in 29 minutes, in conference he is even worse, averaging 5.4, while playing 30 minutes per game. In conference that is an average of 7.2 rebounds/40 minutes.

I agree he shouldn't average 10 per game, but he definitely should average at least 8 (and preferably 9+) rebounds per 40. 7.2 rebounds/40 for a 7 foot guy is terrible.

I'll be interested to see if Xavier's Jason Carter will put his name in the portal.

He hasn't exactly worked out at Xavier.


But I think he'd be a great fit for Brannen's system. And he'd be transferring down a level which may also help him.


I don't view has a hatable Xavier guy like most every white guy they bring in. But if he transferred, I say take him.

As for Vogt.

I think its Combo of he's exhausted and he's being game planned for. Both of those things can be corrected In the offseason.


He's shown he has a high IQ and can learn quickly. I seen no reason why he doesn't adjust next season.


That said, If we get a chance to land a shot blocking Center, I'd take him. Because I trust Brannen and his staff to give them some offensive moves and we urgently need a tough as nails rim protector.

What's the craziest thing I said in that post? Just asking........


I just don't want Vogt to end up as "The Guy Who Knew Brannen's System"

He's had a good season as an unexpected early season scoring punch. Is that going to be all we can say? Yancey Gates was torn a new one for not grabbing rebounds by our fan base. It's okay to be critical of an obvious weakness in Vogt's game.

Think about it, if Mick was coaching this team where would Vogt be?

I'd say riding the pine.
