    While competition will be hot, at least we've got a lot to offer this year. Not only do we have some recent success to show to these guys, but we've got A LOT of immediate playing time to offer as well.

    If he doesn't get any player in the last 3-4 schollies that can contribute that will be a failure on Prohm. But I don't expect that to happen.

    Heck, they don't even need to announce. Matt A. is already on grad transfer guys like glue that they want before they even announce.

    Is there a reason you say Yetna would likely RS or are you just speculating? Just wondering as red shirts are becoming less and less common is college basketball lately.

    Yes that the last comment from Prohm I had seen. I read into that as he'd like one more Post addition from the JuCo/Grad transfer pool to add to next years rotation.

    The other 2 scholarships would be used on the best available be it JuCo/Prep/Transfer. Not necessarily on 2 more player to add to next years rotation but to help the team long term. A JuCo outside shooter combo guard would fill a need and we've heard of a late target for that role.

    I got the feeling some fans are looking for 2 more impact players for 2017. It could happen I just have different expectations.

    Are we really even after Yetna now?

    Whether we hit on our needs is one thing, but to miscalculate them would truly be incriminating.

    Yenta is viewed as a raw prospect who would need to add some weight for Big 12 competition. Only speculation but I would expect him to RS or not contribute much as a freshman like Long/Carter for ISU next year. I really doubt the staff would bring Yenta in expecting him to contribute major minutes next year in any case.

    Do we try to over recruit in case someone does transfer out at the end of the season as well? Just wondering because as of right now for next year we would just have one scholarship to offer and we are after some big fish for that class so it'd be nice to have atleast 2 to offer.

    Someone is definitely transferring out.

    Since we don't have a stretch 4 currently on the roster I would think unless we add two Grad/Jucos plus Yetna red shirting is a luxury not afforded to Prohm.

    I'm not one to usually speculate on departures and I'm not, however based on our woeful post situation earlier this season I really doubt Prohm has hopes of getting contributing minutes next season from a guy that he didn't give a shot this year.(response to an earlier comment)

    99.9% chance that someone transfers out and that's not a guess

    Some combination of Carter, Kasongo and Long will transfer.

    My guess for most to least likely
    1. Carter
    2. Kasongo
    3. Long.

    Juiston is top priority. If we add Juiston, we're looking at

    Jackson
    Wigginton
    Babb
    Juiston
    Young

    Lewis
    Lard
    Long

    Another big scoring guard and another post looks necessary if we want to put up any fight for an NCAA bid. I don't care where they come from, but would prefer immediately eligible transfers. There are still a ton of transfers to come. It will start in April and keep coming throughout the summer. The big fish will be out in April.

    Actually that is not true. Redshirts are uncommon yes, but they still happen fairly regularly. It usually happens at schools that reload and don't depend heavily on the transfer market.

    Don't forget McNeil!

    Yep, we need two eligible forwards and a guard imo. The big fish are not out yet, but Juiston in priority #1. I'd love Thornton and Thorpe, too. With the scholarships that will open soon grab a sit-out transfer

    How can you say that they are uncommon & happen fairly regularly? And I think my statement that redshirts are less common now is definitely true.

    There also might be some preps open up their recruitment after coaching changes.
