Like many others, we’ve contacted Troy D’Amico of SIU.

If he's anywhere near as good as last year's top SIU transfers Lance Jones (Purdue) and Marcus Domask (Illinois) he'd be our best player instantly.

Hmmmm. Dude from SIU looks like a nice player and all, but doesn't seem to address a need unless there are other dominoes falling.

Lipscomb is down the road


It certainly is. Once you pass Martin's BBQ, you're almost there.

But he will end up at a BigTen/ACC/SEC type destination or turn pro and spend a couple of years in the G-league before being full-time NBA. He'll probably make more $$$ on NIL this next season than he'll make in the G-League at first.

The old high school listings floating around that say 6-7/190?
He's more like 6-10/250 now. Prototype NBA power forward.

He looks like he fits the BVP mold a little bit, but agreed it doesn't seem he fits a need. He and Clayton would both be inside/out guys.

He had a strong final month of the season.

That was my exact thought. He would allow us to play bigger, since he his ability to hit the 3 could allow him to slot into the 3. But to your point, it doesn't seem like an obvious fit.

Yeah, 4.6 rebounds per 40 minutes is pretty paltry. He seems like he'd be an upgrade on Cornish, but that doesn't seem like where we should be focused unless others are leaving.

We’re on a long list of schools that’s reached out to D2 Nordic Kapic. 6’8 averaged 20ppg and 9rpg; has two years left.

We offered in 2022. Native of Ontario and played for FIBA U17 team. Had offers from Lehigh and Dayton as well.

This would be another former 3 star without much college PT scenario. I've seen him listed as an SG as well.

Nordin and Theodosius can both go elsewhere. In his highlights I saw Nordin dribble twice. We don't need another outside dude. As for the Wyoming kid, we also don't need a project and he barely played for Wyoming. We need an Ali Ali and we need a Miles Brown. We need a 3 and D wing with length who can go inside and likes it inside and we need a veteran guard who doesn't need to score 20 a game to be happy. Someone who COULD score 20 a game but also is ok with 5 points, 5 rebounds, 3 steals and 3 assists.

Given the extensive list of Nordin's options, I don't think we'll land him anyways.

We’ve contacted EJ4’s former Brush teammate Antwone Woolfolk from Rutgers. Not a ton of stats but had 9pts and 9 reb against Nebraska. 6’9 -- we've had success reuniting former teammates.

Not sure if this is mentioned above but Sullinger from Kent State has entered the portal.

He might be Shereef Mitchell insurance. Not that anything has happened on that front yet. But I suspect if you're Coach Boals, you're going to at least make contact with some potential replacements, so that there's some sort of relationship rekindled should you actually need to pursue the player, instead of starting from scratch when other teams have already recruited them.

Also had offers from South Carolina, VCU, Drake, Florida Gulf Coast, Dayton and St. Joe's.

Went to Wyoming because he'd play right away. Played 51 minutes last season. Strange.

This guard is right in the "able to get" zone.

https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/player/_/id/...

14ppg; goes to a school similar to the 3 directional Michigan MAC schools

From Houston TX where Southwest flies nonstop to Columbus from. (?)

Good player but not so great that UK, Duke, UCLA etc will be drooling over him.

We’ve contacted Isaiah Gray from Cornell. He’s from Brooklyn originally, maybe Boals knows him from Stony days.

https://x.com/theportalreport/status/1770627322896433601?...

Assist numbers don’t scream PG and 3PT % doesn’t scream 2 guard. Almost seems like another EJ4. Same height and lbs heavier with most of his damage coming from 2PT range.

It seems like we’ve contacted more stretch forwards and combo guards than bigs/PG’s so far.

Unless the culture, playing opportunity, or personal life reasons are why he's in the portal, this profiles as a guy who thinks his worth is P5 and P5 pay. Not a lateral move to the MAC.

Nice little write up on him.

https://davesjoint.net/2020/03/14/isaiah-gray-brooklyns-h... /

Stats don't blow you away, but he looks like a solid contributor and body (200+ lbs on the wing is a good thing). He just dropped 19 on 8/10 shooting against Ohio State in the NIT.

https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/isaiah-gray-...

Uhhhh I'll definitely take some more of this in Athens.

While there is nothing really wrong with MTSU (except it has no fan support), Murfreesboro TN in and of itself is like the "Walmart" of Nashville suburbs.

Maybe living there is not his steaming cup of sunshine.
