If we land Bolton and he's immediately eligible how could the Spring have really gone any better?
That would be very Malou-esq
Just because I like a challenge...
Nadolny, Tucker (if he graduates), and Grill?
Even if we land Bolton and he isn't immediately eligible I think Prohm has done a hell of a job this spring.
I'd rather have Johnson than Nadolny now that we got Grill. You could argue 3 years of Bolton is better than one year of Tucker too
Just landing Bolton is a b+ and if he's immediately eligible it's about as good of a spring as any intelligent fan could hope for.
So what exactly is the waiver that he's trying to get and what are the odds he could play this year?
Wow. Just. Wow.
I don’t understand
I don't disagree with you. I think that's what you would have to decide...what would be better for next year and what would be better for beyond next year.
Clearly the Grill, Johnson, and Bolton (fingers crossed) group is better for the long term and I think I'm good with that.
with the way the grad transfer market and spring recruiting has changed, Prohm has done a very good job this spring. Getting Bolton would make it even better. WIth the departures we had, Prohm is doing a fantastic job.
Nobody knows.. accept isu staff probably.. really if you can provide documentation that staying at a current place is detrimental to your well being than it’s usually a good bet to get a waiver.. ncaa has relaxed its requirements substantially it seems. That doesn’t mean Bolton would get one just saying it’s not as difficult as before.
Within next 2-3 years I doubt there’s much of any transfer restrictions..
But, there is one huge problem with your statement. Can you figure out what it is?
I did see CSP and family in church on Sunday, so hopefully that is a good sign.
I think you could argue getting Tucker or Gilder or one of the more sought after GT to go with an eligible Bolton would have been better than Grill/Bolton/Johnson but it seems like Prohm was looking for a HS/Sit out/eligible guy from the get go. Taking that in to account, I'd give a class with Bolton an A.
The really nice thing about Bolton is, he fills the gap left by the two early departures, a gap that would cover multiple seasons. It also sets things up perfect for 20-21 and beyond. Barring something out of the ordinary happening next year, Prohm should bring back at minimum, 4/5 starters for 20-21, that's with Solo and some younger guys with potential at PG and on the wing in mix as well. Perfect fit for Foster and Carlson.
Considering Tre Jackson is incoming I feel it was the staffs preference to only add one of Nadolny, Grill or Wheeler. I'd even argue that Grill's size shooting and versatility to play SG/SF is a better fit in the class. Nadolny and Wheeler are pretty locked into PG and some SG thus redundant with Jackson.
Johnson was a high upside player with pro traits of size and shooting that is raw and use the RS season to develop into a Clyburn type. Exactly what the staff wanted, they targeted him early and got the commitment.
If they get Rasir that would satisfy the staffs desire of a proven P5 scorer at the guard to lessen the need of Grill and Jackson to produce as freshman.
In the end, the staff has done well in the spring this year, especially I don't think they expected losing 3 players to the Pro's until late in the year. I won't give a grade because we need to see how the additions end up playing but they executed their plan. That is all we as fans can ask for.
I think James Kane was the one that targeted Johnson. He is the same one who found Ja Morant at Murray so I trust his talent evaluation.
You’re assuming some of the fans are intelligent
I would consider myself a stable genius
