I thought McNeal was the secret guy.

Sorolla was supposed to make his decision Saturday, so Iím guessing itís him

It is Sorolla per his twitter. https://twitter.com/jay_sorolla

Odd that Brannen didn't post a dancing bearcat.

Oh well, we needed a big body to eat a few minutes and fouls. Just hope other guys play well enough that Sorolla only gets 5-10 minutes per game. Or who knows, maybe he will play better than expected.

Now the last piece is the shooting, ball handling, scoring wing. I would sign up Jaevin or Mack on the spot or wait for a late transfer portal guy. I would not use the 13th scholly on someone who can't make a big impact THIS YEAR. In other words...not a Sorolla type or likely any other recruit we have signed so far.

I like the long term potential for MAW and Davenport but for this year I don't think they are the answer. I also think McNeal and Sorolla will fill some roles we needed filled.

Lol and we all thought Brooks or Nso didn't have speed for coach system. You can't lose out on *4 as conference champs to bottom feeder and sell tickets. Where the shooters that were coming nku next year? Back 2 back conference champs with TONS of minutes available in wide open offense and this what we getting?

So what you are saying is you really donít understand recruiting at all? I agree.

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

Exactly. Why can't we get Lebron James level talent at this point of the recruiting season?! I just dont get why our staff isn't doing more!

It was 700+ kids in transfer portal. We didn't get not one top 200 transfer and we had best situation to get major minutes. It's still unsigned 2019 top 50 transfers. Three former 5 star guards out to get right now and we not in on none of them? Isn't open offense with 30+ minutes every guard dream? Not to mention at top 25 school with BRAND NEW ARENA. I would've rather signed the top sit out guys than signed one year scrubs. 7-8 deep and load up on next year class.
