The reality is, good grad transfers are the hottest commodities in the game. These guys are wanted by the big boys. This never used to be the case. We need to Get who we can get this year and focus on getting a couple more top 100ish guys from high school from the 2021 class. Get as much talent as possible and be ready to compete in 2 years.

I'm all-in on Tate. I think a line-up with Tate, Harvey/Madsen, Keith, Eason, and Diarra could be really dangerous on both ends of the court come the 2nd half of next season.

Jon Rothstein just tweeted that Tate is now getting looks from Kansas State, Virginia Tech and Gonzaga.

Makes you wonder how Tate's relationship with Brannen and proximity to/familiarity with UC stacks up against banking on his "best offer" and going to a more high profile school with more recent "success".

I normally love the hard schedules but I agree with you. We have a pretty hard schedule this year already. Arizona, St. Johnís, Texas tech, ( 2 of those 3), xavier, at tenn, at nku. Probably one more Iím forgetting. I wanted be opposed to buy games the rest of them. Get guys minutes. Preferably not 300 + teams. Still hate those games.

Iíd be shocked if he didnít come here but I donít know their relationship or our interest level. Or his.

I read that Tate is interested in joining a team that is expected to make noise in the tournament next season.

Going into next season, the Bearcats upside appears to be the bubble. That changes if a player like Harvey or Shoey take a huge leap next season, or a freshman comes in and significantly outperforms expectations.

Our ďexpectationsĒ are only real flaw I can see holding us back from Tate and other top level grad transfers.

If Iím any recruit or transfer and Gonzaga is interested, itís be hard to turn that down: they play a hard no conference schedule every year. Their league is terrible, so youíd get playing time. And they are always a high seed with a good chance to advance.
