Looks like Ali is going to Washington St. That's now two PGs that committed at one point in this class only to decomit and wind up at a bigger school. I forget the other kids name from back in the fall.

Xavier Pinson flipping to Missouri was the other one I was thinking of.

Thats great. He was a gritty KSU player who had a nice floor game and took advantage of his minutes on the floor. No wonder he is having success as a coach.

RE: Mens Basketball Offseason
Well, it sounds like we have our final spot filled for next year... And this one has some backstory. Looks like 6'6" 200 lbs. Juco guard C.J. Williamson (aka. Courtney Williamsonbey Jr.) verbally committed to Kent. He played his freshman year at Texas Tech but didn't do much. Then he transferred to Florida Gulf Coast before being dismissed after being arrested for breaking into a car. On the court, he seems like the long wing we need. Off the court... Let's just hope we keep up our run of success with guys with trouble in their past. If we're being fair, Hall's backstory was probably more worrisome, and he was a model citizen here.

RE: Mens Basketball Offseason
As for his Juco numbers. He averaged 10 ppg 5.5 rpg and over a steal per game. His percentages we're 40.8/28.1/75.0. So he's not the three point shooter many want. I think his size on the perimeter will be a big factor for us assuming he can move laterally well enough to guard the perimeter. It looks like it will likely be on the two freshman guards and Walker and Avery if our three point shooting will improve. Williamson's size should provide some interesting options for 4 guard lineups if need be.

The two areas I'm most concerned with are 1) who steps up as the backup pg and 2) three point shooting. I do think we did a real good job of getting longer on the perimeter which was a big problem last year. Well now have Gholston (6'4"), Roberts (6'4"), Harris (6'4"), Peterson (6'5") Williamson (6'6"), and possibly Duling (6'7") as options on the perimeter which is a significant size upgrade over our options last year. Here's a video on Williamson.
