I also think Quincy Olivari might be a possibility to go to the NBA after this year. I know some people will scoff at that possibility but if Trey Murphy can be a 1st round pick, then I think he has a chance to be a 2nd round pick at least.

I guess we should just enjoy this season now and worry about the 2022-23 season later.

I'm very fond of Quincy, but stop comparing him to Murphy, who is a MUCH more versatile and two-way player given his ball-handling, height and length. They're both "plus" 3-point shooters, but Murphy is the far superior defender and rebounder, and IMO a better all-around offensive contributor.

RE: MBB Recruiting 2022
Olivari can be an NBA player, but as others have said, it'll require a bit more work. He has to work on his handle and driving, he needs to become sharper in the midrange, and it he has to better utilize his length on defense. There's an NBA player in there somewhere. But there is still plenty of refinement that is needed. On the plus side, his step from freshman year to sophomore year was massive and shows he's willing to put his head down.

Chancellor White to Louisiana (over us and Houston according to Mark Berman).

Staff also watched 2023 Gehrig Normand recently. 2023 guard who we offered and I think will get some more mid-major offers over the next year or so. Limited athletically but good shooter and scorer.

Looks like the staff has been reaching out to 2022 PG Cord Stansberry, who we've offered. Had power conference interest from Butler but seems like they've backed off.

Jesaiah McWright commits to La Tech. A very typical Konkol guard recruit. Should be a decent pairing with BB Knight.

Shawn Jones to Texas St (he had cut us from his list a few weeks ago).

Bube Momah to Lehigh (hadn't seen links to Rice for a long while).

Jeremy Gregory to ETSU (superfluous with Akuchie's commitment regardless of interest).

RE: MBB Recruiting 2022
Looks like 2022 Blair Thompson recently visited. From NY playing at Northfield Mount Hernon. Late bloomer (he's grown a few inches in the past couple years). Now listed at 6-8, but definitely more guard than forward. Probably more comparable to Peterson than Murphy out of HS. He can play PG and isn't quite as awkward as Murphy was in his senior year. Like Peterson, there's some athleticism there and good shot mechanics. Most of the time isn't beating his guy with speed (if he was 6-8 and was then he'd be a 4-star or 5-star). Offers from Harvard, Yale, Penn, Bucknell, and Xavier. Interest from the likes of Minnesota, Vanderbilt, and Penn State.

Sounds like Van Green went to see 2022 CG Anthony Arrington play. Out of Georgia with offers from Wofford, Mercer, EMU, and others. Other guys we've watched over the past couple days are 2023 Brandon Rechsteiner and Shey Eberwein.

RE: MBB Recruiting 2022
Arop Arop commits to Columbia. He visited there last week. I hope he ends up fulfilling his potential - if he does, he's a matchup nightmare in the Ivy League. Cleaning up other loose ends, Elijah Saunders to San Diego State and KyeRon Lindsay to UNLV. Like that Lindsay picked UNLV over the power conference programs, think he can eventually be dominant in the Mountain West. And big recruiting win for former Owl and now UNLV assistant Carlin Hartman.
