    One Scholarship Left

    By my count there is one scholarship remaining after bringing in Royce White. Seems to me with the departure of DG, Anderson and JVB after next season it makes sense to bank that scholarship for 2011. With Odunsi and Cook coming on and the staff targeting Uthoff, having an additional scholarship to target a 2011 PG is going to be very important.

    In addition to landing Uthoff, if the staff could pull in a top 50-75 PG to go along with all the other young guys the future would be look pretty bright. I would have to imagine the sell job to a top 2011 PG would be easier if you can point to playing with guys like Ejim, White, McKnight, Cook, Uthoff and Odunsi in an uptempo style.

    Re: One Scholarship Left

    I was wondering if Chasson Randle is still an option.

    What do you think Colvin is thinking about right now?

    I thought I heard he was a Daniyal Robinson recruit and was not really interested after DRob left.

    Has Colvin even chose a school to transfer to yet?

    I assume the Randle door was closed after Robinson left. And who knows with Colvin. There have to be more issues than we were aware of with him, he seems to have generated NO interest.

    Who's going to play PG in 2011/12?


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: One Scholarship Left

    Just found this bit on Colvin from July 1, 2010:

    Former Young star Colvin taking his time

    Former Whitney Young star Chris Colvin is back on the market. And it's a little different this time.
    "This [recruitment] is definitely different and a little tougher," says Colvin, the former Iowa State recruit who is looking for a new school. "The first time around I was recruited by the schools. Now I'm taking my time and looking at schools, almost recruiting them a little."

    Colvin, a strong point guard who is at his best off the dribble and using his burst and strength in getting in the lane and to the basket, helped lead Whitney Young to the 2009 state championship. He led the team in assists and scored 10 points a game for a balanced and loaded Dolphin team. After playing in 29 games and averaging 15 minutes a game as a freshman at Iowa State, the 6-2 point guard decided to transfer.

    "I am just looking for a school and a system that fits my style," says Colvin. "I want to find a place that gets up and down."

    Although Colvin says a four-year school is certainly his preference at this point, he's not ruling out the junior college route for a year if the options in the end aren't to his satisfaction. Colvin says he's just beginning to research the schools and set up some visits. He's already been on campus at Bradley, with TCU, DePaul and Illinois State also in the mix.
    --------------------

    I would say hes kicking himself about this now
