Who said he couldn’t handle playing for him? Maybe I missed something details. He might just want the heck out of that armpit of Southern Indiana.

Anyone who has a pulse and is not 100% bought into playing, going to school, and living where they are currently is going to be exploring options as soon as the season concludes. It’s just the new reality.

College bball soon about to feature a style of play reminiscent of AAU.

RE: Transfer portal
Yup.

Mix in parents, guardians and family counselors in kids’ ears and it’s going to resemble grade school select baseball with players jumping to new teams as soon as the last game of the season is played. A big part of what made college basketball so great was having guys who were part of the family for 4-5 years. If you need a program to tell who’s who every season, it starts to lose a little something.

May feel less like a program and more like a franchise if this is the new normal.

RE: Transfer portal
The Transfer Portal is working. Transfers LT James Tunstall 6-5 300 and NT/DT Jowon Briggs 6-1 310 are both on campus.
A football team LT doesn’t need have to be a 3rd round NFL draft pick type to settle down the offensive line. All a team needs is a competent LT like transfer Dino Boyd in the 2018 season. If James Hudson had been allowed to play the whole 2019 season (no thanks to Coach Harbaugh), the Bearcats probably would have beaten Memphis once in 2019. If the Bearcats had won the first game at Memphis, the AAC Championship game would have been Navy in Nippert. That sounds like a ticket to another NY6 bowl game in 2019.
The middle of the Bearcats DL is going to be a “no mans land” for opposing RBs. Jowon Briggs is in his 3rd year of college football, and Graduate Marcus Brown 6-2 297 seems to be in his 30th season.
#99 Marcus Brown was playing HS football in 2011 for Naples Lely HS, FL one year before his UC DL Coach Gregg Scruggs first played in the NFL in 2012. After graduating from HS, Brown played at a prep school in 2015. Then his first two years at UC were the Tubbs disaster movie 4 win season in 2016 followed by the 2017 season when new Coach Fickell thought that his Bearcats would win one game all season– and it wasn’t the Michigan game. The 2021 year is Brown’s 6th year at Clifton. His NT/DT linemate is 6-2 297 Graduate Curtis Brown who has also been at UC since the 2016 season.

Notre Dame recruits football players with the slogan “our degree means something.” OK, but a UC graduate degree means much more than any ND undergrad degree, and there are five other Grad students playing football including friend and former Tunstall UConn teammate LB Darrian Beavers.
Let’s compare DT stats:
#92 Curtis Brooks had sacks in the last two games he played in, Tulsa and at UCF. He didn’t play in the game at Georgia. A clutch player with 4.5 sacks, 105 career tackles, and one forced fumble.
#99 Marcus Brown had a sack against Memphis and at SMU in 2020. Another clutch player with four career sacks and 68 career tackles. He missed three games in 2020 but had 35 tackles in 2019.

Jowon Briggs is from UVa and Cincy Walnut Hills HS.
The Cincinnatian has 39 tackles in his first two years with four career sacks.
The 'Hoos (please don’t ask what a 'Hoo is) were 5-5 last year and in 2019 had a really good season with 9 wins and 5 losses. They won their ACC sub-conference but still got blown out in the ACC championship by Clemson 63-17.

At DT Bearcats also have #90 Sr Jabari Taylor 6-1 293 from Akron Hoban who has 43 tackles and 2 sacks.
#93 Sr Elijah Ponder 6-3 275 from Atlanta with 62 tackles and 4.5 sacks
#97 Eric Phillips 6-3 295 is still a Freshman with 6 tackles last year from Cincinnati Colerain HS.

Coach Fickell started four years at NT for Ohio State. He believes that a team’s success begins with the DLine and OLine. I’m not going to disagree with The Coach.
The Bearcats have 10 DTs, 4DLs, but no NTs listed on the roster this year. If I were to pick a Freshman to contribute this year – good luck with the talent, depth, size, and experience of the DL – I would pick RSFr Eric Phillips from Cincy Colerain HS. To pick a true freshman to contribute I would pick his HS teammate Dontay Corleone 6-1 300. The Colerain Cardinals have five Bearcats on the 2021 roster with four from Cincy LaSalle HS and three each from Cincy Moeller HS, Cincy Princeton HS, and Akron Hoban HS. Cincy Walnut Hills HS is next and is tied with many HSs with two new Bearcats: Jowon Briggs and Fr G Glenn Mao, both 310# linemen. Welcome home Jowon Briggs.

This UC DL outmatches ND's OL (coached by former Bearcat OL coach Jeff Quinn) because four 2020 ND OLinemen will probably play in the NFL this year. The schedule works out well for the Bearcats: The Irish begin play
at Florida State
Toledo
Purdue
Wisky at neutral in the four weeks before the Bearcats October 2.

The Bearcats play MiamiOH
Murray State
at Indiana Sept 18
week off
ND Oct 2.

Indiana's schedule begins
at Iowa
Idaho
UC Sept 18

Both ND and IU's starting QBs Jack Coan from Whisky and Michael Penix Jr suffered season ending injuries in Oct/Nov last year. The ND backup QB Fr Buchner didn't play as a Soph in HS nor played as a Senior last year. Calif didn't play HS football last year.
How about DT, DE, LB, S, CB blitz packages in 2021 for the Bearcats!

10.4 ppg, 2.4 rpg while shooting a 45/38/78 slash and had double figures in 8/17 games for the Aces this season.

To me, we've already got a ton of guys at exactly that level in that position on this team...so I'm good.

RE: Transfer portal
Another kid who is suited for a faster pace offense at the 3 hit the transfer portal yesterday. 6'8 wing:

https://friars.com/sports/mens-basketbal...gantt/5329

He was a highly rated guy out of high school who we had some involvement with but not sure if it was Brannen or not. Just hasn't settled into Providence, but likely worth a look:

I've asked before and nobody has ever answered... and I really was asking for an answer, so don't poop yourself, bog.

And I ask simply because I don't know... do we have anybody lined up for next year????

No, though this may be the new normal though with the transfer portal. I wouldn't be surprised if only half the players going forward came as Freshmen recruits.

You'll see very little activity in terms of commits until after the tourney and any coaching changes take place. Same as always but likely an even later Spring with all these transfers. All teams still have to see who is coming back.

Why recruit when all your players get an extra year of eligibility? It's like the season never happened, as long as you prevent defections.

HS scouting report:

“ An advanced physical specimen. Powerfully built with some quick twitch explosiveness as a 6-6 wing. The lefty can get where he wants on the court and is a good playmaker. Manufactures buckets but has room to improve as an outside shooter. Is a great rebounder for his position. Scores on putbacks and can start the break. Imposing and versatile defender who should develop into an NBA draft selection.”

Averaged 9 points over 7 games at Miami while battling through injuries as a freshman. I would certainly kick the tires at the very least. Seems like a guy with Jacob Evans-like size, athleticism, and potential.

It would be nice if KW came back. But we need an athletic big. Eason needs to gain 20 pounds in the weight room.

6'10" Center Tre Mitchell from UMass (averaged 19 ppg, 8 rpg, 2 apg, 1.5 bpg, and 1.7 spg this season on a 52/37/76 shooting split) just entered the portal. Brannen should call him about as much as I'm called about my car warranty.
