    Re: Recruit Lists v2.0

    So who is the next target for 2014? We have 3 left to give after Clay made the announcement. Any one have an update?

    I think we will sign a Juco post for the class of 2013 class; so therefore we will only have 2 more scholarships to fill for the 2014 class. Both of them should go to posts/wings considering we lose Ejim and Amardi.

    So I think our top targets right now for the 2014 class are:

    Rashad Vaughn
    Abdul-Malik Abu
    Reid Travis
    Sean O'Mara

    Then for the 2015 class we will need to replace: Percy, Jones, Hogue, and Juco post. So a couple guards and a couple posts.

    Does not really change anything. Guys like Vaughn, Abdul-Malik Abu, Reid, O'Mara are our top wants from the high school ranks. Plus always a chance a we pick up someone else's coaching change decommit and/or transfer.

    Yeah Custer is replacing Bubu's scholarship. Speaking of Bubu I really really hope he is not guilty. The scholarship will go to waste next year now officially since Custer is taking over his scholarship. A class of 2013 guard prospect is no longer an option.

    I like Percy as a player. Guy shot 65% last year, so it's hard to blame him for shooting until he has an extended slump. Especially considering the bad shots he threw in on the regular last year. The only thing I don't like about him is with our personnel in next two years, it would be nice to have a big shot blocker/rebounder as our big guy. If ISU plays a 3 guard lineup next year, they will struggle on the boards unless Percy steps up.

    Well, he's also got to learn how to pass out of a double team.

    Percy has his issues, but his scoring ability is something we may not miss until it's gone.

    I think at times we will have a 3 guard line up, but I think our main lineup will be:

    Percy-C
    Niang-PF
    Ejim-SF
    Thomas-SG
    Jones-PG

    I really, really like that starting lineup, but I would bet during games, just because of the lack of depth at 4/5, Ejim and Niang end up trading bench minutes after the under-12's, or earlier each half. Right now, with only Amardi signed, If one of them gets in foul trouble, that becomes a huge problem (unless you're like the people I sit next to and are huge Ellerman fans). Just goes to show how badly bigs are needed, and I'm absolutely certain CFH knows that. I know there's not a lot of support for bringing in Edozie, but they have to bring someone, just about anyone in for body size and rebounding sake against bigger teams. To me, the ideal would be any JC transfer that will be a senior next, leaving scholarships open.

    His nickname should be "the black hole" .... ball always goes into him... never comes back out.

    I believe the politically correct term is "African-American holes." I could be wrong on this.

    Re: Recruit Lists v2.0

    I would love it if they got both Abu and O' Mara. When know Abu is a freak of an athlete, and will excell at the college level, but I believe O' Mara could be a little underrated..I like this kid! I think he could share some time with Gibson at Center for a couple years.. I am all for getting top talented guards, but in-excess I feel could be a bad thing. My opinion.
