As it should be, 6'7 guard is something we hated to have the past eight years( Thank God Haase--Ehsan is gone).

Under the impression these are our last two guys, unless somebody else leave out the returning nine.

RE: Hoops recruiting
1. Wondering in the NCAA will move or extend the Spring signing period for 2020.

2. Looking to the class of 2021, there are several local kids who are prospects in both basketball and football. Don't know if we can sign any of them, but going on the axiom "you never know til you try", a coordinated recruiting effort by both the basketball and football programs might help.

Kennedy said we’d(college basketball, in general) likely be signing guys as late as August. From an interview with a Memphis host.

Multiple P5 FB offers (Auburn, Tennessee, Florida, Nebraska, ...); offer to play both by Jacksonville State, I think.

RE: Hoops recruiting
Remember that if a player wants to play football and another sport, he must sign a football scholarship. Because of past behavior where football coaches used other sport's scholarships to add football players, the NCAA has ruled that other sports' scholarship players cannot play football. The last to do so that I recall was Rod Widby of UTK who played FB and BB.

If anyone wants to constantly take shots at the former staff take it to the smack board. Enough. I’m happy we have a new coach but damn. Don’t even argue with me.

RE: Hoops recruiting
No idea about the rules, but if a prospect from high school doesn't sign with anyone during the period I'm guessing they can sign with whatever school they want to anytime afterwards.

There may be rules for visits, etc. though.

& I would be surprised if we signed 2 in state players. Maybe 1.

If Kennedy has taken a look at the team then he knows we need someone to fill Butler's position.

That screams Juco.

I think there is still an outside chance Butler gets another year. I don’t think the NCAA has definitely made a ruling on the winter sport athletes yet.

We got one Alabama guy, unless youre talking about the two remaining where we offered a Alabama kid.

If he took a look then he knows he needs more than that.

Fredricks is probably a huge part of this thing next season
