That's with only two commitments right? This is a great sign (no pun intended), considering recruitment was one of the areas we were worried there may be considerable drop off from the last coach.

Great work coaches and staff!!!
:Looks good thus far. I'd guess he's tapping into many of the guys he had made contact with that just were not at the level of UNC, but could play here. I'm interested in the next few years once that well runs dry.

I don't understand why that well would dry. He'll still be recruiting the same circuits, right?

It's a hell of a lot easier to get a top tier guys interest when you have UNC on your chest Vs, UNCW. So what i'm saying is he might be hitting on guys that were backup plans for UNC recruiting. He has a solid staff, i honestly don't think it will be an issue

Gotcha. I like what I've seen from Esleeck on the recruiting front.

I don't think that it's quite like that guys, but it may not hurt. The good kid out of Charlotte that just verballed was originally a guy that Esleek was looking at while at Mercer for example. He's known as a good recruiter and if you're good, you're good.

RE: Recruit Updates
Wheatmore HS 6’6 G/F Gavin Rains took an unofficial visit on Saturday. Not much on him but here is what I could find. Say what you want about C.B., but I do like the kids he's recruiting. Long and Athletic for their position, and can stretch the floor (Jeff Gary 2017, Jay Estime 2017) (Jaylen Simms 2018, Kai Toews 2018) Hopefully we can land him, as we could definitely use the depth with size. WINGS UP

Any indication if we've offered? Counting Toews and Sims, we still have 4 scholarships open. Simeon Kirkland would be a nice understudy for Cacok!!! No insight, but I assume we'll approach a few transfers as well, juco or grad transfers that can play right away. We still need more depth inside, and Richmond's dismisal and Talley graduating, we'll need a PG to pair with Toews.

Do you not think Gary will be a solid PG going forward?

No indication whether or not we offered. I don't see any indication that we have, but has to mean something to have a kid in for an unofficial. Phenom Hoops has him as having no D-1 offers as of last spring, but D1 potential. As for another PG, I see Jeff Gary as being capable of being the starter next year, however his jumpshot and height could allow him to play off the ball as well. His length on defense has been the main reason for his increased playing time, even prior to the Richmond dismissal. So I don't see them bringing in another PG. Also, I don't see any indication that Simeon Kirkland is on the new staffs radar. He was offered by previous staff. He does seem very talented though. Jack Hemphill was a top guy for the new staff and he recently committed/signed to Boston University. I think the focus going forward is going to be size, with Bryan graduating, also wouldn't be surprised if Cacok tested professional waters.

RE: Recruit Updates
If a player comes in on a visit they are all most always going to be offered-why waste the time? Cacok will have to really go crazy from here on out to think about going pro -if you are talking NBA. I think he has a legit shot at the NBA but he will have to show that he can make a jump shot from at least 18ft to get a real look. I think he can get there and if he does that would make a absolute beast in the CAA next season. No question about it-he should stay.
I also agree with Bill on recruiting players,some guys can and some can't. Looks like these guys can and I think they will. Its 80% about the players you bring in and the other 50% -who knows!
