Definitely fits a need. Do we know much about him?

His stats are decent enough. Looks like he has a few post moves. The only thing is I know JUCO has like 50 levels and i have no clue what the competition is like anywhere. I assume he will be good enough to come in and start for us. Without some serious weight room work this offseason we are going to be a small team though.

Yep! Cokley attempted 2 three point shots for the entire season. Missed both of them. Butler, last season at Pensacola State, attempted 0(zero) three point attempts for the entire season. I see the similarity. Both are strong in the paint but totally non existent from three point range.

Good. That's the way he should be playing. Force it up inside or be there for putbacks, so "Cokley, part deux" sounds good to me.

Would love to be proven wrong on him. Beat ETSU and Hofstra for him, based on reported upcoming visits for him listed a few weeks ago.

hadnt been excited that he was the only big we were after, and the competition we were recruiting against to get him. Will add initially I read some wrong stats on him. Til I read 13 and 6 a few weeks ago, I realized they hadn’t updated stats from last season til then. That’s about as good as we can expect to find this late. I think he’s ranked as top 30 juco player.

I had the same thoughts until I saw the updated stats. Had a 25 point game against a solid JUCO team.

Zero three point attempts. 63% FG, good. 62% FT, not so good.

We needed another big, and good fundamentals playing under the basket is fine by me. We'll see how he turns out soon enough.

How many spots does this leave us? Still need to sign another PG to replace Nick (hopefully Coleman).

At least 1. We've got a lot of interests/offers out, though.
