I've heard good things about Karaiskos so I think there is a decent chance he's a contributor next year.

There are also 3 more scholarships available and there will be some transfers on the market. I expect us to be very active in the JUCO/transfer market. Next years teams has the core to win the conference.

I don't see why people would have been writing Hunter off if that is true. I do seem to recall you saying a few weeks ago that he wasn't ready to play yet.

I agree with you about ODU hitting the JUCO/transfer market this off season. Hope they can find one or more bigs with the same success that they got Curry last summer.

What "good things" have you heard about Kariiskos???

Bump: Gilesfan - Please share with the rest of us ODU Basketball fans what "good things" you have heard about Kariskos.

We have already heard from via a comment placed in the local newspaper during the summer that Jeff expressed that Kariskos shot the ball better than he had thought he would. Other than that and him never playing we know nothing about his playing abilities or lack thereof.

But I agree. It's hard to develop freshmen when you don't land any. Now that we have, let's see what JJ can do.

6 of the top 10 teams have at least 3 transfers on the roster. That's just college basketball in 2020. To say that you "must" get freshmen recruits just isn't true anymore. Sure, you'd love to have kids in your program for 4 years, but it is far rarer now than it's ever been.

No problem with transfers, but I think we've ridden that wave as far as we can and are experiencing it's limits.

I don't think building a team with only transfers can lead to long term success. Aaron Caver looks to be only the second 4 year player under JJ to graduate with the program. We need a few more.

Jordan Baker and Denzel Taylor were 4 year players as well. Yes they committed to Blaines staff, I get that. But they stayed on board and still came and played for 4 years under the current staff. Good team players that still helped us win a bunch of games. But I do agree that continuity has been a real issue... we need more 4 year players.

People need to realize the landscape of recruiting has changed. Very rarely are athletes staying at the school they sign with. Some are asked to leave, some leave because they think they can go to a bigger school (Hueitt thought he was going to a P5 that has a former CUSA coach as their head coach), and some leave because they don’t want to sit on the bench for 2-3 years.

People keep talking about transfers and how it’s a quick fix and discount the fact that both BJ and Brandan were in the program for FOUR years.
