I don't really view this as Ike vs Miles or Ike compared to Wiz etc etc

I am very excited about the addition of Ike. Both Jaylin and Miles shot over 100 attempts from 3 this year at >40%. Those generally aren't guys who are going to lose their starting roles... However, I do think what Jaylin and Miles lack is exactly what Ike brings to the table: Length/defense.

It doesn't matter who starts. All three will get very good minutes next year. My guess is Ike will play a lot even if he isn't a guy scoring a ton. His defensive presence is going to be crucial.Offensively, he does seem to fit well with this group if he can drive/kick.

I'm very curious to see how small Boals is willing to go with these lineups. Would he play a lineup like Jaylin/Brown/Brown/Ike/Clayton or is that too small?
Clayton is not anywhere near the physical presence Dwight was but he did lead the team in blocks and would be an absolute nightmare offensively for opposing centers...


+1. Ike and Shereef joined while the others remained. Meaning, theyre all bought into Boals vision and each will get their minutes.

Granted Toledo failed to win the MAC yet again, both Schumate and Miltner are only 67. So, I dont think the lineup you proposed would be too small. Foster (if he commits) is also just 67. He just knows how to use his body.


I honestly think that a team could win the MAC with 5 guards starting, as long as a couple of them are 6'5"+. It's about quality of player vs size in my book. Now, that same team might really struggle with any P6 type team out there in the non-conf or post season, so assembling a team that way isn't a great plan for any kind of national success.

Re: Foster, is there any real info out there that he's interested in coming to Ohio, or is this just speculation and hope so far?



I think its fair to say were a school of interest; but now were just hoping were THE school of interest. Hes visited, follows staff and some players, liked the Shereef/Ike commitment posts. However, we dont know what other schools are offering (NIL) or if another school school has become more aggressive in pursuit recently.

Im hopeful he chooses us, but I think at this point Id just like to know one way or the other. Still plenty of bigs in the portal to fill our need.



Any idea what kind of NIL we can offer?

That's the answer I would have expected from oldkatz.

I was told the 1804 Collective raised a little over $100K this year for Boals to allocate how he chooses.

Plus, Furman and Wofford would be upper division in the MAC. And saying he is a walk on isn't true. Just don't want to insult the young man because he is still developing into a consistent D1 player.


Furman, Wofford, Elon... respected private schools.

He must take academics seriously and that is always a good thing.

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.


Saw Nicol with some of the other guys at the ISU game - looks like he's pretty ripped, wouldn't doubt if Boals wanted to move him to PF after a year of growing this year.
