    Now that Vaughn is no longer in the picture who are we targeting now if anyone? Will we sign another freshman, go after a transfer/JUCO, or save the scholarship for next year?

    There are two scholarships open. I imagine both will be spoken for before next year since there will be 3 open for 2015. And this is assuming no transfers.

    There are plenty of scholarships turning over after the 14-15 season to not need to "save one for next year". I'm fairly certain there's at least a Hogue-like JUCO player out there that we've noticed while looking at someone else to fill the seat if nothing else.

    I'm thinking Fred needs to start checking out the CF Pick-Up players. If Fred wants a 5 star just to have a 5 star, he could probably get Chewblocka. Problem is he has a kid so I'm not sure if he would put the program first. If he wants an SG or SF, CMJH and Fitzy are probably the best ways to go for overall talent, but if he wants a lockdown defender like Babb, he's probably going to sign Vikes. I just don't know.

    I would imagine Malou gets a good push. I also am guessing their recruitment of Vaughn is far from over. Not to say anything will come of it, but I doubt CFH just forgets about him now, unless RV tells him he's closed up his recruitment.

    for class balance, I'd expect one 4 year player (Clark) and one transfer/JUCO. As usual, it'd be nice to get a post in there for 5 more fouls, if nothing else.

    I haven't played bball since 8th grade but I can assure cyclone nation I have the heart and passion to take this program to the next level. Plus I have 5 years of eligibility and I promise not to leave early for the league.

    I'd bet Fred leaves one open to use during "transfer season"

    I'd like to see a 5th year and a JUCO or a 5th year and get Malou in and redshirted.

    Maybe OP could just look at the recruiting thread that already exists.

    I'd be willing to bet the focus is on Clark and a transfer. I think we have Kentucky/KU/UNC esque clout when it comes to bring transfers in now. The best ones that come out after the season will be interested in us.

    I don't see the need for a 5th year player next year. If a guy who fits what we are trying to do is available and he'll make the team better, take him of course. But there isn't a need.

    There is plenty of leadership available. Niang is the vocal leader and Morris is a quieter leader.

    Our biggest need, in my opinion, is getting McKay eligible first semester!

    This is something I will never understand about this site. Why in the hell would you care if someone starts a relevant, topical thread, rather than sifting through the hundreds of that recruiting thread. I, for one, appreciate having someone who follows this stuff sythensize all of that information down and tell me who we are still recruiting.

    As with all things on this site...just go ahead and don't read this thread if you don't like it.

    I've never missed a three in a collegiate game.

    On my 8th grade BB team, I went 5-5 from the FT line for the year. You can't do any better than that.
