People that are freaking out about schollys are dumb. 15 years in a row we have had at least one transfer. Why would it stop now? Naz Long is a good player. Not a program changer but solid. That review came from a good source.
Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.
I don't think most people are freaking out about "oversigning" I think we are trying to figure it out.
as I said a week ago (and was ripped for it), we basically stopped with NWC after SDW committed. It would seem the staff wants more of another young guard/ball handler to go with Sledge and SDW. If we sign four this fall then they know they will lose a player going into next year already. Not sure if Long will sign in fall or wait until spring. Long was the backup point guard at a loaded Findlay Prep in Las Vegas last year and was going to go to prep school in LaJolla CA, but is now at the Regional Elite Development Academy (REDA) in Ontario. He is on the post grad team, so I don't know for sure if he is qualified to attend second semester at ISU as has been rumored. He was part of Team Canada in the Nike Global Challenge late summer, logged more minutes than NWC and played pretty decent against Marcus Paige.
If we stopped recruiting NWC immediately after the SDW commitment, I don't think some of our players got the memo right away. Niang (as usual) as well as Babb and Booker (I think) kept promoting him to cyclonenation via twitter up until about 5 days before his decision.
May never know exactly what went on... the truth usually lies somewhere in between.
