Grand Canyon-smack talk put aside
Whew! It's been fun tormenting you guys but now let's talk basketball. Which tourney do you guys think you will be in, CBI or CIT? Also, who is going to step in for Russell who I do think is really really good (seriously) for next year? Is Shaq Carr the guy? Is Josh Braun going to transfer since he can or is he staying at GCU for his grad degree? What recruits do you have coming in? I think GCU and NMSU will be the teams to beat the next couple of years in the WAC. I'm sure you have seen Franks list of blue chip players but we will see how they pan out. Let's see of Ohio State transfer A.J. Harris and be as good as Baker at the point. Exciting times for both programs.04-rock

It's looking like GCU will not play in any tourney. If they do, CIT and they will not be hosting a 1st round game (students will be on Spring Break).
I assume Shaq Carr will start at Point unless the freshmen Damari Milstead blows Dan's mind in the off season. He was a teammate of Frayers.
Josh Braun cannot transfer, he's already started his Graduate degree at GCU.
The only LOI is Damari. Right now there are only two scholarships unless someone does not return. The 2nd scholly may be filled by Malik Ondigo (fingers crossed) or a JUCO/Grad transfer. Remains to be seen.

Have I seen Frank's list??? Depends on which list. They change often.

I think the only guy we have coming in Oscar's teammate from NorCal, but the guy I'm most interested in is the 6'7" point guard we brought in from Senegal who redshirted this year. Shaq likely takes over DeWayne's role next year because that is why he was brought in last year (the chemistry with Keonta is a bonus). We'll likely be back in the CIT again and hopefully we actually win it this year, but our road record is my biggest concern. Braun will no doubt stay for his senior year, but could possibly transfer after that if he feels like it.

RE: Grand Canyon-smack talk put aside
Yeah, I'm kind of over the CIT. Isn't anything other than NCAA tourney a participation trophy anyway? Plus, GCU is due for an overseas trip this summer. If the team is feeling anything like a few fans I know, including myself, it might just be time to close the door on transition and get on with the business of 2017-18.

There is no indication that anyone other than graduating seniors (Russell & Clark) are leaving, though I might be able to think of one or two who I wouldn't shed a tear for if they left. Milstead is in. I have to think the staff is combing JUCOs & grad transfer wire for some more size. We will also be getting back Matt Jackson. I'm not going to put much hope in Toure or Sankare, until I've seen them produce on the floor in meaningful games. The "project" players have not done much for GCU to date.

The window for JB to leave was last year, as he is in his MBA program now. I was honestly a little nervous that MM would come calling on his way to UNLV last summer. I believe I remember seeing or hearing that the Braun family maintained some kind of relationship w/MM, even after he committed to and began attending GCU. It was probably more paranoia on my part than having any actual roots in reality.

Majerle also offered a scholarship to a class of 2020 guard who is currently at the same high school as Oscar and if Majerle offers another scholarship within the next couple of years, I'm going to have to think he has a fetish with guys coming out of that school.

I saw Milstead and Walker (the 2020 offer) play side by side at HoopHall West & my first thought was that we had signed the wrong kid. Walker stands out on the floor and is only a freshman. It is probably why he already has an offer from Arizona, too! Haha

But you can't deny that it makes seem like Majerle is obsessed with guys coming out of that school.

I'm interested in seeing the next couple of years now that you guys will qualify. Will you be WAC good or another level of good.

The question mark we have is how good is Bollo Gnahore. He red-shirted last season and missed this season with an injury.
