    7 footer?

    I think it was Randy Peterson, during one of his chats, said we were recruiting a 7ft post player. Not Pelle. Anyone know anything?

    I am sure our coaches searching every gym, park, driveway, and African soccer pitch for a 7-footer that can play the style they want to play. We could really use a shot blocker.

    Blaise Mbargorba committed to SMU (along with brian Bernardi) but they canned their coach - so maybe he will re-open his recruitment, and maybe we'll get back involved in it.

    That's pure speculation, btw.

    Really good documentary about how some of these players make it to the US. Features Assane Sene who plays for Virginia and Aziz N'Diaye who plays for Washington.

    That'd be nice, but he is probably Kentucky bound.

    Noel trimmed Florida from his list today - down to UK, Syracuse, and Georgetown.

    We need some defensive post presence. A shot blocker and a dunker. Cato 2.0

    It's gotta be Pelle. Still happy with this year, but look at next years lineup if Pelle comes (though it's still solid without him)

    Lucious - great ball handler, passer, and finisher
    Babb - lockdown defender
    Clyburn - One of the top shooters in the nation and able to make the play as well
    White - Duh, everything.
    Pelle - Anything down low he will make or block

    Randy Peterson said it wasn't Pelle.

    And that lineup looks pretty good, but it scares me where the points are going to come from? I think we need a shooting guard in that lineup.

    Re:7 footer?

    Bench would be solid
    Ejim
    Niang
    Walker
    Okro
    Booker
    Bubu
    Gibson
    McGee

    That would probably be the best bench in the country! Hell they could make up a starting lineup that would be competitive
