Hes heading to Seattle tomorrow to try and get Tari back on board


As for Mason.. while i was never a huge fan of the pick up, Ive grown to like him and Id guess Wes and Mason could really bond on being guys who can shoot and just flat out work their ass off against the odds.


Ddj, mikey
Maw, Mason
JD
Tari
Lahkin

Need a 3&D defender, and 2-3 bigs

The task to get Tari is going to be a difficult one. He got big offers. Also not real sure they are fond of how we were calling the kids soft.

Yep if Tari stays, we're almost back to same roster situation we were looking at before the exodus. This is what I had then:

C: Transfer 25 / Diarra 5 / Eason 5 / Lakhin 5
At that time I wanted a transfer wing and transfer big. I think along with Tari, those remain the priorities, and also add in a freshman big and a freshman wing.

Call up my guy Spell and let him know everybody is coming back and we'd like him to join.

Seems like Miller really likes athletic bigs.

I think we let him go and try to fill the spots in the portal. I want To have room on the roster for him to add his own 4 year guys over the next few years.

As it stands, we lack rebounding, so Id hope we can fill that vacancy

I'd take him. Seems like a gym rat that fits the Wes ethic, and he's from a neighboring state so he might be familiar. Greensboro is right down the road from Elon (where Spell had an offer I think mostly because his dad played there if I remember right). Who knows.

I would say bring his own 4-star stretch-4 freshman with him, but when I watch videos of Spell and Hensley in high school, Spell looks more skilled to me and has a MUCH better release.


Had Hensley not signed with Miller I would have forgot all about Spell, but if he saw something in Hensley...

The work ethic is there, and we just need some young guys in the program. I'm not sure how many high school guys haven't signed yet. We need to fill a lot of positions, a few freshman would be great.
