Men's Basketball Recruiting
Commitment from 2018 6-5 Trey Murphy III. Out of North Carolina. Offers from Army and Navy among others. Really good shooter. Shot 45+% from 3 and 90+% from the line. First thing that sticks out on his highlight reels is his range. Can hit from anywhere.

RE: Men's Basketball Recruiting
Nice to get the 1st commitment for the 2018 class. It will be interesting to see how many scholarships we end up giving out for the season. By my count, we have a possible 4 but haven't we also read that both of the graduate transfers could get another year possibly? Plus one of the other walk-ons could be on scholarship so it may only be 3 either way. I do think we need to get at least 1 big guy. The current roster has just 3 guys who are 6-8 and 1 who is 6-9, but none are listed as a center.

RE: Men's Basketball Recruiting
Now that we are recruiting multiple years out, could we split this thread similarly to the football recruiting threads? Especially since this thread started with the Drone commitment!!

Per VC, our breakdown of 2018 offers is as follows:
G: 12
SF: 6
PF/C: 5

And for those who see another non-Texan commit and want more Texans, a regional 2018 offer breakdown:
Texas: 8
NC/SC/VA: 3
West: 5
Northeast: 2
Midwest: 2
Southeast: 1

Excellent and it is about time Texas is being recruited.

Missed this but we're in the final 11 for 2018 wing Rip Economou. Other notables on the list are Utah State, UTEP, Davidson, and BU. He's visiting UTEP this week, which isn't surprising considering they offered him very early on in the process.

RE: Men's Basketball Recruiting
Couple more housekeeping notes:
-2018 big man Brady Heiman committed to Nebraska. Not surprising considering he's from Nebraska.
-2018 G Trey McGowens, who we offered a bit ago (might've actually been offered by the last staff considering VCU made his final 7) removed Rice from consideration.

Thought Iwould post this here since it relates to recruiting. Rice made the list of schools in this season's transfer wars.

It wasn't this morning. Basically just mentioned how Rhoades left and took Evans with him. Mentioned the other transfers and their new homes. Said how Pera basically has to start over.
