    Olu Ashaolu

    Twitter --

    Louisiana Tech transfer Olu Ashaolu hearing from Kentucky, San Diego State, Duquesne, Oregon, Kansas State, Iowa State & Mississippi State.

    He's the guy available right away to play.

    Re: Olu Ashaolu

    imo - little to no downside in getting this guy. Plays right away, scholarship is not in use. Bring him in!

    I didn't peg you as a twitter guy.

    I certainly would love it if Fred could land this kid. Would certainly add even more beef down low.

    Bingo!! No reason not to go after a transfer who can play right away; unless we are going to have some big time late recruit he appears to be the best option out there...

    Comes in, plays a solid year on an already open scholarship, and then is gone and the scholly is still open for next years recruiting class!!

    I think he's a huge get.
    A) he most likely starts
    B) he doesn't reduce our 2012 class
    C) could allow Railey to redshirt

    looking at our post situation that would give us great class distribution.
    SR-Ashaolu
    JR-Booker
    SO-White Godfrey
    FR-Railey if he could redshirt this year
    2012-hopefully Naing

    Even though we may be up against Kentucky, a trip to Italy couldn't hurt.

    I don't know if he would start but he would be a huge get regardless.

    I don't feel as good about our chances with this one. Would love to have him though.

    I follow sports guys but I don't tweet. I've tweeted once to a sportswriter to correct him when he stated that Babb was a senior-to-be.

    Re: Olu Ashaolu

    I love these 1 year guys. But I'd be shocked if he wanted to come here considering the number of guys we have on the roster that played or will play.

    Re: Olu Ashaolu

    Is there any PG like Jake Anderson that can play right away?

    Based on your avatar, I suspect you might be asking this from the KU (BOOOOOOOOOOO) perspective. Their recent PG play could use an upgrade.

    No kidding and if he did come, would we automatically redshirt Railey? Also, who is the odd man out for minutes Booker or Godfrey?


    Kansas wears Adidas.

    Re: Olu Ashaolu

    Illinois got Sam Maniscalco from Bradley, we could have used a guy like that for this year to bridge the gap. He's a one year, immediately eligible guy. Only one I know of.

    Re: Olu Ashaolu

    Olu would be a great pick-up. Rebounding machine. Had some pretty decent stat lines against some of the better (or maybe just bigger) teams LA Tech played. 18 pts and 11 boards in the loss against Iowa...

    Olu Ashaolu Stats, News, Photos - Louisiana Tech Bulldogs - ESPN

    Tough competition against the likes of Kentucky, SDSU, etc. Plus I heard he might test the pro scene.

    maybe not but he put good numbers up against a decent schedule. 14/9+ personally I'd bet he would but play around 25 min/game
