RE: 2018-2019 Men's Basketball Recruiting Thread
For the 2019 class, it looks like the only player with a Rice offer that we're still keeping tabs on is Anderson Kopp. We've been in to see him a couple of times, including once in October, but all his unofficial visits have been to schools up north. I would venture a guess that he wants to be close to his brother at Northwestern, which is why visits to Illinois State, Milwaukee, Loyola (CHI) make sense. Doesn't seem a likely get.

Unless we find a late steal somewhere I guess we’re going to snag a grad transfer? Doubt we get Deng. And if we aren’t keeping up with anyone except Kopp maybe it’s best to focus on 2020 recruiting now.

At first glance, it definitely looks like we've mostly moved onto 2020. Wouldn't hate to hold onto that final spot to try to get a junior/senior transfer after the season to keep our classes balanced.

Without trying to be overly cynical, how many Frosh/Soph transfers out do you think Pera will see in April?

So instead of saying 1 slot open for transfer, one has to try and game the magnitude of the "+" number that has to be written for the now edited "1+" slot.

Hopefully that '+' isnt large. But, Pera isnt building such a good track record about keeping the '+' down. I will grant you that the only Pera class one can judge this on is an 'abbreviated' recruiting cycle, and hopefully Pera can do much, much, much better about that 'stickiness' issue going forward.

I think that's a fair point and this class will probably be the biggest indicator of what Pera's retention rate is going to be like. And I do think it'll be an interesting case study.

Four of the five 2018s aren't local which means there's always a chance one or two get homesick. But on the flip side, there are reasons to think that much of the class will stay together. Four of the five guys were offered scholarships prior to August 2017, including two who were offered in summer of 2016. That leads me to think that most of the guys have known Pera and been able to develop relationships with him for over a year (not guaranteed, though, because Byers and Scott were the primary recruiters). The one odd man out there is Peterson but we also recruited him for a while and he's said multiple times he values education.

Does any of that mean anything if we win seven games and the season is trying? Probably not. But I'm going to be cautiously optimistic.

Looks like Linebaugh was in to see top-100 guard Dallion Johnson. 2020 out of Massachusetts who we've already offered and who also holds offers from some high academic schools and some high-majors (Rutgers, Penn State).

Looks like he's actually "from" Virginia, but goes to boarding school at Phillips Andover.

If he wants to go to an academically oriented school, he might be a tough pull from the Ivies given that half of his high school class is probably going to one.

I wonder if they did play. The site I looked at might have been wrong.

This was the link I saw which mentioned that game

https://watchstadium.com/news/not-so-sec...0-09-2018/

But the SFA fan site mentions nothing about the game a day later.

Did you guys see this? 6'10 is a big size!

https://riceowls.com/news/2018/11/14/men...edler.aspx

"Rice men's basketball coach Scott Pera has announced the signing of Max Fiedler (Indialantic, Fla.) to a national letter of intent for the 2019-20 school year, Pera announced Wednesday afternoon.

Fiedler, a 6-10 forward who played for Melbourne High School, led the Bulldogs to a 15-12 record, a district championship and a spot in the regional semifinals. He averaged 18 points, 12 rebounds and four assists while being named First Team All-Cape Coast Conference and Team Most Valuable Player.

"This morning I would like to announce the signing of Max Fiedler," said Pera. "Max is everything we are looking for as a Rice student-athlete. Max is one of the top students in his class as well as a skilled front court player. Max can score on the low block as well as step out and shoot the ball. He checks every box in what we are looking for in a student-athlete and we can't wait to get him on campus."
