I heard McGrath say once that he didn't like bringing in JUCOs. But he seemed a little hesitant about saying he wouldn't.

Correct.

Verbalcommits.com is an excellent website for keeping up with our recruiting, both for the upcoming year AND future years:

http://www.verbalcommits.com/schools/uncw

I don't think Kirkland and Cannon-Flores are still recruits. They were recruited by the previous staff. Also, I think we now have 3 open scholarships for next year with Richmond's dismissal. Will be interesting to see how they use those.
I'd like to see a solid JUCO with one of those. I'm curious what coach thinks of them because if i'm not mistaken it's rare at his previous employer to get JUCOs
Can't recall UNC ever bringing in JUCOs, but I agree a JUCO or two would be nice. Especially someone who is skilled with size. I expect them to go after Grad Transfers too.

I mean it makes sense at the ACC level because you can fill your roster with a bunch of 5 star guys and call it a day. But here, sometimes you have to plug n play. I hope he'd be open to it for the right fit. How well the guy that was supposed to be here is playing at coastal is evidence #1 & Flemmings(although we all know that case was rare)

I'm sure that'll come down to a conversation with the staff.

Esleeck probably supports it, given that Mercer brought in at least one successful JUCO while he was there:

http://mercerbears.com/news/2011/4/14/4_...ath=mbball

Travis Smith played in 67 games for Mercer from 2011-13, averaging 8.4 ppg and 13.9 ppg in 2 seasons.

RE: Recruit Updates
By my count we have 8 returning scholarship players returning, provided no one transfers.

1. Fornes
2. Cacok
3. Taylor
4. Estime
5. Gary
6. Kalina
7. Elmore
8. Cylla

Freshman guards that already committed.

9. Toews
10. Simms

That leaves us with 3 open scholarships.

We badly need an experienced post player to go along with Cacok and Jeantal Cylla (sitting out this season after transferring from FAU). Ideally that would be a graduate transfer. McGrath went after one in Sallah, until he decided to play for K-State.

Not a big deal, but just to clarify Barton College is not a JUCO. They are a private 4 year college.

I know I was merely pointing out that he went from a lower level to contributing on the bigger stage
