Interestingly, barring unexpected departures, with only one scholarship open in 2020 it seems that the team we have right now is the team we are going to have for a while.

It will be fun to see how this unfolds.

Skaggs will open up one spot then the question is will the "walk on" get another year of scholarship money? Scholarships are on a yearly basis. So there could be two openings.

Yeah and with the transfer epidemic that goes on in college basketball now you have to be prepared. Plus, it's always good to establish relationships with prospects, High school/AAU coaches.

I have no doubt the walk on is a good kid and a hard worker. I'd love to reward that if we can. However, if we need that scholarship for a better player who would be a more regular contributor and not just a "feel good" story... The coaches better make the tough, but right decision for the program there.

If his grades are good enough, they can move him to an academic scholarship.

Did Daniel Etorama ever end up on academic scholarship? I recall reading about how strong he was academically as a walk on as well.

He had offers from Troy, Mercer, Tennessee State, UT-Chattanooga, Presbyterian, Kennesaw State, and GA Southern. He also took a visit to GA Southern so it looks like we beat out Byington on this one.

VC won't show other offers once a guy commits. I think it helps them keep up with the depth chart that shows up on the team pages. He still has all of his offers listed on his twitter account. According to the article below he had a P5 interested as well.

https://hoopseen.com/news/player/201908/...wanted-man

Edwards fits a similar mold of Sims and Boggs as he should be able to play the 2-4 consistently. I read somewhere a few months ago that he had a 3.8 GPA, so that's also a plus. He looks to be stronger than Sims and Boggs looked when they were seniors, but I'm just going by the eye test on that.

Showing some nice athleticism and shooting touch as well. Put some college weight on him too and we may have another decent shot blocker on our hands that can tighten up the defense.

Honestly, I stopped paying attention to our recruiting because I thought we only had one scholarship. An even more exciting possibility is that it could be related to Bowen's waiver.
