Since Carver is the only senior, do we have any more scholarships left? I was thinking that we had one extra that we were sitting on.

We have one more scholly to give out.

If we can land a PG to backup Hunter, that would balance the classes out nicely.

So we got a 6'8" GUARD who can shoot the 3. Looks like a good passer and decent ball handler, and someone who can finish at the rim. What's the catch?

I would a agree a PG plus perhaps a PF/C type. Carver would be our only senior. But we do have one left from this year. Maybe JJ is trying to even it out a little. Marrow would be a great PG get.

I don't think there is a catch. I think we got a good one. He probably wasn't recruited at the elite level because he isn't super quick. He reminds me of the type of player we often look at on SoCon teams lighting it up in the tournament and wonder why we never get guys like that.

Only question mark is the old JJ defense issue. At 6'8 he is going to have a hard time guarding to JJ's standards if he plays the 2-3 and he probably has to get more physical to defend the 4 to JJ's liking.

Incidentally, his brother has the same problem at Duke. He is a very good offensive player, but can't guard anyone as a 6'7 guard that isn't super quick or physical. Luckily we are not playing in the ACC, so Brady should be fine as long as he can earn JJ's approval.

It’s in today’s paper. Ed Miller calls him a wing player and says we are looking for one more player, either another wing or another big.

Great job coaches.

Yeah he’s definitely a wing. He doesn’t look like he’s played the post a day in his life... lol. He’s gonna have to gain strength to play the 3 in all honesty.
It says he was offered by Belmont, Furman, UNC Greensboro. These might not be household names but college basketball fans will tell you that all three have very good programs, especially right now. Pretty sure all 3 were top 50 to top 75 programs this past year.

This is a huge signing IMO. His brother tweeted "y'all keep sleeping' he's gonna wake you up real soon". This kid seems to have flown under the radar, because if you look at his highlight video this kid can ball. His assist impress me the most and he's a lefty which can be hard to defend. Great get by the staff in my opinion. Just a hunch, but I think this kid gets significant minutes from the start ala Alex Loughton!

I agree, I think he is going to be a great asset to the program in more ways than just on the court. Love the commitment from a very fine young man.

RE: Men's Basketball Recruiting: 2020
I agree this is a good signing (O'Donnell) however it looks like the majority of our players, are backcourt players. Also what happen to the player from Hampton, that was transferring? He was averaging 24 pts per game. If nothing else, Jones needs a big man that is good enough to play right away. I'm stilling wondering about Reece, this year. Lastly, the new recruit looks good but needs weight, which I think ODU can do. But on defense, he needs to pass the JJ test. Just ask Reece!

Looks like Marrow is staying at Hampton U. Was hoping to see him in an ODU uniform, but best of luck to the guy. I hate it when stars transfer from programs, so good for him.

Certainly lots of questions about this coming team.

Re the kid from Hampton, sounds like a lot of people put 2+2 together and may have gotten 5. Very little I trust as truth on this site. No one even mentioned O'Connell here til he committed. Vaunted Verbal Commits never listed him.

I sat in the row behind many guys from our b-ball team at the NSU game. I asked Dajour Dickens if Marrow was coming over and he said no. I wasn’t sure if he was being forthright or just saying that because he was not allowed to confirm the news. I guess I have my answer now.

That is the right choice overall for him. I wish ODU was his destination but perhaps the writing was on the wall.

3 A10 offers along with us. That bodes pretty well. Hope we can land him.
