    Seniors -
    Juniors - Dre, Tunks, Mills, Sharpe, Adams
    Sophs - Mayor, Ski
    Frosh - Jenkins, Johnson, Gordon, Scott, Stalzer, Talton

    That's the 13 scholarships. We have none unless Dre leaves early and/or we have some guys transfer out.

    Nik, what do you think about Sharpe? Any chance he and the staff have an agreement that he'll leave as a GT after this year? I understand him staying, as there was no benefit to him to transfer and sit out this year, but next year may be a different story.

    I think that would make a lot of sense for him. Especially with consideration to the fact that Dre is his closest friend on the team and Dre is likely to leave after next season.

    Is Ben just waiting to finish the semester?

    If Mills' scholarship opens up, that would allow us to sign someone in the early period this fall. Heck, it would allow us to find a graduate transfer to help us this coming season and sign someone in the fall.

    Without that, a fall signee would be a risk since so many things could happen. What if Dre didn't go pro for some reason and Sharpe also came back for 2013-14? If so, we'd have a guy signed to a LOI and no room for him.

    P.S. Ben seems like a great guy and I know he's popular. Heard he's got a great sense of humor and is fun to be around. As a player, he's definitely more skilled than most guys his size. I think his struggle so far at this level of competition is mostly due to lower body strength and getting pushed off the block.

    Hmmm. Makes me think if Ben if making a push for a transfer to an ivy or something if he can show the grades.

    I think that, and he still hasn't decided where he's going yet. I know he's talked to schools.

    I agree..I met Ben last year and spent a lot of time with him. You can see how excited EVERYONE gets when they see him and he soaks it up. Obviously when he first came here the goal was to add weight and strength and while he has gained some..it's still no where near where it was expected. With the talent coming in, it only seems like it's going to get worse.

    Pri has those connects at Fordham. Also, Greg Graham (the HC who recruited Mills to Boise State) is now an assistant at Bradley. I'd see those as two possibilities for Mills.

    Actually asked him about Bradley and he said probably no. Said something about visiting Loyola - Chicago and Idaho. There were others, but I don't remember them.

    No offense to your friend, but this will be good for both parties. I think we're set on taking either a SG or a PF/C this cycle

    RJR- Adams, Sharpe, Tunks next fall. There should be 2-3 scholarships available for 2013.

    adams? based on what? Cause you are the first to mention it, and we know what your credibility is like.

    Am not even going to bother with someone that questions someone credibility without knowing them personally. Arrogance is a bad disease.

    1) assuming that means you have nothing to back up adams statement.
    2) credibility (for you) is around where your rep is.
    3) Now that I've called you out on this, of course Adams is going to leave after this year :lol:

    Kinda like this... making claims and instead of backing them up, you answer a question with a question

    fify.
    Anyways, I would prefer it if Mills put on 40 pounds of weight and dominated next year. Adams... I'm excited to see him blossom into the swan we all know he can be.

    Atleast you can teach a stupid person, an arrogant person is hopeless.

    Look up the word "dicitionary". I don't think you'll actually find it.

    :lol:

    OK, I admit grammar/spelling smack is weak, but when you call somebody out to look up something in the dictionary, you probably *should* spell it right.

    Consistently dealing with stupid people will make the best of us arrogant, we are 750 posts in with you; I am surprised there aren't more arrogant people on this board.
