HUGE pickup by Boals and Co. to replace the wing spot vacated by B-Rod.

Isaiah "Ike" Cornish

6'6 190 Shooting Guard/Small Forward

Has the length to be a SF but might need to add some bulk. A 6'6 wing though? Essentially replaces BRod and Adelodun role. Already checks off a wing with length. If his skill set fits the "3 and D" moniker, he's exactly what the doctor ordered.

Redshirted in 21-22, played sparingly as a RS Soph last year for Maryland so his stats don't shed much light, but he was BIGLY rated coming out of HS. He was the #77 recruit nationally by 247Sports and #89 recruit in the nation by Rivals.

He has 3 years of eligibility remaining for Ohio since he came in after the COVID year.

Could see him doing just that this summer and takes B-Rod's spot in the lineup. That's pretty crazy how high he was recruited - 4 star. What a lineup that would be if we could get Foster. Hunter / EJ4 / AJB / Cornish / Foster

Also - we now have the squad of Cornish & Corna

Looks to be a great pickup as a 4 star out of HS, and with 3 yrs eligibility. Hopefully the prior groin injury not a lingering issue.

With the way the grid is shaping up - pretty obvious Boals plans to roll with a 4 guard/wing and 1 post lineup. Nothing wrong with that and it's essentially what we employed (at least offensively) when BVP or Clayton were our PF anyway.

Speaking of Clayton. Is he our starting post right now with Wiz and Ezuma backing him up? That would be my guess as we sit today. He certainly has the size. Just a matter of making him want to live/work down there instead of 30 feet from the basket.

Also makes me wonder if Boals and staff think Nicol, at 6'7, has the chance to grow or bulk up and move to more of a PF role instead of SF role - given all the depth and options now in the back court.

I'm not sure - although I could see Clayton moving to the post - he can be pretty effective in the paint if he isn't out wide. I still have a feeling we could be pursuing Foster heavily. Could also see Nicol moving to PF role now that we have the duo of Cornish / Hadaway.

Dookies can keep crying a river about it - he belongs to us now. Maybe we will see Cornish & Corna grace the Convo floor in the near future!

Clayton probably backs up Foster (or another post player brought in) and so on from there with Gabe/IJ. Clayton at the 5 could be semi-interesting from the standpoint hed at least lure the opposing center outside. But yea, the dude is so physically imposing that hopefully hes in the paint more this upcoming season.

Some comments from Maryland fans on the Cornish transfer

-----

"Former 4 star recruit, I still think Ike can play at the P5 level"

"I could see him going to a Butler or some P5 like that trying to rebuild"

"He wasn't a Willard recruit and Willard, for some reason, didn't see Ike as part of his future plans. I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that he needs to transfer down a level. Maybe just needs a new start with a different staff that actually wants him there; Cornish has skills but may just need the opportunity to display them in a new setting."

"Out of all our bench guys he was the one I didn't want to see leave"

"Ike had a nice looking shot. Very smooth getting to the midrange"

"Physically he reminds me of Andrew Wiggins"

"He got injured in HS and lost his entire freshman year. He still wasn't considered 100% last year"

"He always seemed engaged in the game and had a positive attitude"

I suppose I should wait until the final scholarship is filled, but right now I am concerned that our 2 transfers will take minutes from AJB & EJ4 and NOT from Wiz & Clayton. If we are going to more of a 4 guard/wing type of look, then fine...but I am skeptical that Boals commits to that.

Truth is, Cornish is a fairly unknown commodity unlike Hunter & Baker who had college track records and large sample size stats to observe. I am glad he was a highly regarded recruit, but concerned he never cracked the lineup on a pretty poor Maryland team his first year and barely got minutes on a mediocre team the second year. Maybe I have post-Wiz syndrome with P5 guys who didn't get playing time there.

Excited to see him play.

Na, I think its pretty obvious were going to be running a 4 guard/wing lineup. Boals committed to it the latter half of the season when it was apparent Clayton wasnt playing down low; but also wasnt effective enough from the outside to justify starting. Hence, inserting BRod.

Id be shocked if our starters arent Hunter, EJ4, AJB, Cornish, Big Transfer (Foster?). With Shereef and Brown getting 20-25 minutes a game.

I think the Maryland fan comments above are pretty encouraging in spite of his lack of PT. Apples and oranges between him and wiz.

I see a world where Hunter starts at point guard and is relieved by Mitchell. James is at the 2 and is relieved by Miles. AJ is the 3 and is relieved by Hadaway or even Nichol. Cornish is our 4 and is relieved by Clayton and Foster is our 5 and is relieved by Wiz. Then you have some other guys to put in as time moves on where Ezuma can take the Wiz spot. I see one of Hadaway, Nichol and Sheldon not playing much if we get a guy like Foster.

Boals early in his tenure said he wanted to play a lineup of a point guard, three wings, and a center. We saw him transition to that in the middle of this season with Roderick alongside three guards and Wilson. I think we have the horses to do that full time now.

You can look at FAU this past season as a case study. They played a nine man rotation and seven of those were guards. They started four players 6'4'' or shorter. The seven footer was a decent rebounder, but neither he nor his backup were real board-gobblers or shot blockers. What they did do well was shoot a high percentage (both were above 60% from the field!) and stay on the floor (neither fouled out all season).

Assuming the last scholarship is used on a post player, I see an open challenge and competition for Wiz, Clayton, and Ezuma.

I think Mitchell is going to eat Sheldon's minutes and I don't necessarily see Nicol contributing much in year one. Probably one, maybe two bigs outside of the regular rotation as well.

I'm very interested in Hadaway's development. He has energy, aggressiveness, and played with the commitment to make positive things happen when he got time. I hope his skill is coming along to match.

This is the most correct, I believe. (Hope)

Hadaway is probably the wild card here.

Sheldon is a walk-on or something right? 0-star with no other offers in D1. I figured it was a Boals favor to a friend in Dublin. I never thought he was in their long-term plans. Nichol is a freshman, but I'm sure he's watching. I agree that his best chance at playing is at the 4/5.

We are pretty quick to relegate Miles Brown to 6 man status. This man has started the last 66 games for the Bobcats, and is coming off by far his best season. I just assumed he was a starter 30 min+ guy, which is why I mentioned EJ4 & AJB as potentially losing minutes due to Ike & Reef but not Miles.

Sheldon did have a couple other D1 offers, I believe. One was from an upper level SoCon program. And he wasn't zero stars.

His size might relegate him to 6th man.

I think we're gonna see a similar situation to last season, 7-8 dudes averaging 20 minutes a game. He won't see 28 a night, but he might be able to hold on to some minutes by backing up Jaylin/Boals playing the hot hand.

Below is last years minutes, I just added new names where I think they might fall using last year as a baseline. If Foster comes, I think clearly that pushes Clayton down, but this is only the current Top 9...

9th man: Wiz averaged 13.2 minutes as the 9th man last season, dont see any reason he needs much more
10th: Sheldon averaged 8 minutes in 29 games
11th: Hadaway 7 mins in 22 games

Plenty of ball and minutes to go around.

Hunter 29.3 (Hunter)
AJB 28.9 (Miles)
Elmore 25.3 (DW3)
Clayton 20.8 (AJB)
Ike 19.9 (Rod)
Miles 19.4 (Clayton)
Reef 19.2 (Baker)
Wiz 15.6 (Elmore)
Hadaway 13.2 (Wiz)

I think we're gonna see a similar situation to last season, 7-8 dudes averaging 20 minutes a game. He won't see 28 a night, but he might be able to hold on to some minutes by backing up Jaylin/Boals playing the hot hand.

Below is last years minutes, I just added new names where I think they might fall using last year as a baseline. If Foster comes, I think clearly that pushes Clayton down, but this is only the current Top 9...

9th man: Wiz averaged 13.2 minutes as the 9th man last season, dont see any reason he needs much more
10th: Sheldon averaged 8 minutes in 29 games
11th: Hadaway 7 mins in 22 games

Plenty of ball and minutes to go around.

Hunter 29.3 (Hunter)
AJB 28.9 (Miles)
Elmore 25.3 (DW3)
Clayton 20.8 (AJB)
Ike 19.9 (Rod)
Miles 19.4 (Clayton)
Reef 19.2 (Baker)
Wiz 15.6 (Elmore)
Hadaway 13.2 (Wiz)


Yea, I was going to say I think EJ4/AJBs size and upside bumps Miles to 6th man. However, hell still get his minutes. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I thought hed take a bigger step forward numbers wise going into his 4th season and this team needing an offensive identity for most of the year.

STATS
GP MIN FG% 3P%FT% REB AST BLK STL PF TO PTS
33 28.9 44.4 44.7 72.9 3.1 1.9 0.2 1.2 1.9 1.6 10.0
33 29.8 42.4 38.2 75.0 2.5 1.4 0.2 1.0 1.7 1.0 6.9

Figured hed be pushing closer to 15ppg with Sears and BVP gone. All said, I think this is a good problem to have and itll be fine.

I wouldn't be so quick to pencil in Cornish as a starter just yet. He has proven less at the D1 level than Miles, AJB, and Elmore.

IMO AJB and Elmore are proven MAC level starters with first team all conference potential. Not that they should get handed a starting role, but we should be nurturing their development to reach their ceilings, and continuing to get starting minutes. If we do go to a four-guards look, I think it comes down to Miles vs Ike.

I posted in the portal thread earlier... I expect Miles to maintain his starting role. He was banged up for the MAC Tournament but was giving us 30+ minutes a night through MAC play.

My guess right now is that Jaylin/Miles/AJB are the starting guards with Elmore getting big minutes off the bench and starting for us the following year.

Also, college production>>>>>>>>>recruiting rankings this is why all the power programs and loading up on transfers...


I've seen crazier things happen.

If Miles is a starter it means that Elmore James is not. Jaylin, AJ Brown and post player are 3 of the 5 spots. I don't see Miles playing the 4 and Cornish is 6-foot-6 at least so he would be my guess at least to play the 3-4. Miles is a 1-2.
