I believe Smith is also a grad transfer and will have one year of eligibility (if I read the DNR article correctly).

Some help around the rim. Rebounding is good. And I think that may be what Coach has in mind. Also teaching the freshman bigs HOW, which is important. He might be considering some redshirts too.

RE: WBB Recruiting/Signees
Mr. OTP observed yesterday that he'd heard of teams starting 4 guards, but it looks like Coach O plans on starting 4 forwards. I reminded him that Kiki is a guard, and he came up with an image of Maddie weaving her way through the trees....

Mikaya Tynes, 6’2” from the 757 commits.

She’s considered a top 150 recruit and had offers from Pitt, Elon, uncw, w&m, Charlotte, ECU.

Great news. We are pretty much loaded with backcourt and wings. Can never have too many 6’2” forwards to mix it up inside. Nice!!

RE: WBB Recruiting/Signees
Coach O already received a verbal commitment from 6'1" Wing, Sherese Pittman, out of Steward HS in Richmond back in April.

We have 2 seniors on this upcoming season's roster...actually, both are grad transfers in Diouf from Ga Tech and Smith from Georgetown. The 2 verbals, Pittman and Tynes, should take those spots. I don't know if Irvine is on scholarship or on walk-on status. Obviously, if she's a walk-on, then Coach O still has another scholarship he can offer. Of course, there is always the chance some additional attrition could take place between now and next spring that opens up more.

Next year's 2022 signing class will be much larger (like last year's) as we start the upcoming season with at least 5 juniors (6 if Irvine is on ship) who will be seniors a year from now.

I believe women's hoops still allows 15 scholarships. do we have any unused ones that can be filled?

We have 15 players listed on roster. 1 of them is Irvine, who I believed entered JMU 2 years ago as a walk-on. Not sure if she's still on walk-on status or earned a ship. If she's on walk-on still, then Coach O has 1 more he can offer in this current 2021 signing class. If she's on ship, then he is done recruiting likely until spring and that's if and only if some attrition out of the program opens up something.

edit note: by "done recruiting" I mean with regards to signing more in this current class he is building. College coaches are never "done recruiting" of course. The good side to potentially signing these 2 young ladies who have committed during the early signing period upcoming in November (assuming they do) is it gives Coach O and his staff more time to focus on the HS underclassmen and less immediate recruiting to worry over and allows for more focus on the current season at hand...of course, hoping there will be a current season at hand this upcoming winter.

RE: WBB Recruiting/Signees
6-0 Sherese Pittman, 6-2 Makaya Tynes, and 6-2 Claire Neff all sign today. The first two were expected, Claire Neff was a freshman committed to Clemson but transferred to us a few months ago. She’ll be able to be with the team this season and play next year as a freshman. Very solid recruiting class...Sean’s classes have gotten better with each year, very promising for the prospect of a consistent top 25 team.
