His high school teammate (and I think close friend) Jahlil White came here, and I would imagine we'd be a top contender if he hit the portal. He'd be a day one contributor.

if he went in the portal, temple could land him...the problem is why would temple want him?
he was a 3star with a moderate offer list, who is deep bench at another school, and while wvu is good, they arent some 5 star roster- their 3 starting guards- juco. juco, 3star

there are numerous all-conference players already in the portal, numerous 4stars (like battle)..if you are going the transfer route, you go proven commodity or high ceiling...
Ok
Temple wants Thweatt because his skill-set strengthens it’s weak front-court.

from what, his high school tape??

again this is the best transfer portal ever!!!! 500players are already in (double last year, which was the biggest ever prior)... 7 penn state players already in (steal them from down the road)

if you used your 1 and only available ship on a low 3star with no experience who is deep bench at another school... that would be non sensical to me ..there are tons of proven commodities available

also the fact that you think a 6'7 210lb big will fix your front court issues makes zero sense

Harvey will be in the portal. He isn't coming back.

Saunders was a guy Brannen had recruited since middle school, he was his first offer when he got to UC. WTF is he doing to these kids? He clearly has issues coaching and relating to them. Unless he pulls something out of his a** this spring, this man better be on the hot seat next season.

I do not get it. He is developing well under Brannen and is almost assured of many minutes for an up and coming squad.

It will be a unprecedented and unpredictable transfer period this year, I believe.

next year is year 3..
year 1- regular season co-champ
year 2- 5 opt-out and still made the conference final

no chance he is on the hot seat next year

will be really interesting to see what uc looks like next year... diarra likely transfer, harvey likely transferring
mason had his twin transfer ..and no clue whats is happening with the russian...

could have close to 8 free ships.. the good news

Tari Eason is Mike Saunders' roommate. What happens if/when he hits the portal?

Year 1- he returned the best player in the league and another great player in Tre Scott. Go up and down the schedule and see how many terrible losses they had. They underachieved - no doubt about it.
Year 2- Multiple terrible losses to bad teams and embarrassing performances against Houston. Barely finish over .500.
Year 3- will we even have a team?

The guy has been a total disaster and can't even retain a kid he has recruited since 7th grade?? He should absolutely be on the hot seat next year. In the AAC you can only stay out of the spotlight for so long. Can't afford to let Brannen further torpedo this program.

Why bother recruiting a freshman at this point? It's smarter to vulture around and find sophomores from strong programs and develop them for 3 years instead of taking a freshman just to have him bolt when they finally grow up and pay dividends.

Yes we know, but all indications point to Gardner returning.

pesik, Temple wanted Thweatt last year. There's nothing to suggest we wouldn't want him, even if he didn't play at WVU. You're being ridiculous as usual.

outside of elite recruits, few transfers have the same level schools recruiting them as they did out of high school

look at tulanes star player.... he was a top 100 4star, with tons of offers after high school...went to bama was deep bench... went in the transfer portal after his freshman year, the caliber of schools recruiting him drastically less

with high school recruits, there is the veil of "being unnoticed", "diamond in the ruffs", "way better than he is rated"..as its impossible to properly rate ever high school player... if you go to college and you arent an impact player that veil is gone ...

this is evident nationally everywhere, and common knowledge for anyone who even follows recruiting at all ...

other logic... if you are going to go the transfer route...you go with proven commodity or high cieling .. you could add thweat and could have him end up deep bench at temple too, wasted scholly (aka tai strickland).. or you can get 16pt-7rbs from 6'8 big from umbc who is almost guaranteed to be an impact player to some level
