RE: Men’s Bball recruits
Don't know but maybe those two are guys he thought might be good for ASU but the HC said no or they just didn't fit the team. Could be guys he ran across while recruiting for a P5. We don't know.

Unfortunately, at this point, you are, to some degree, sorting through the leftover bin.

I'll do my best but it won't be for a while. I'm working on the transfers right now and, with the entire Western Michigan team transferring....it's taking a while. ;-)

I'm not sure. They all basically hit the portal on the same day and, with it being Western, which puts them at the bottom of the list alphabetically, I haven't really spent much time looking into it but I should get some time in the next day or two.

For the record, my "pretty sure someone can do better than this" remark was in reference to somebody finding more or better detailed info on these two future Huskies.
In no way, shape, or form was I making that statement in regard to coach Burno. Let's be honest, rebuilding our program means you start by finding players you believe can help and that you can coach. As far as I'm concerned, he's already ahead of Ricardo and Monty in leading me to believe better days are ahead.

RE: Men’s Bball recruits
FYI WMU. Couple threads on CSNBBS Western Michigan might be checked out, for anyone who's interested. The opines include speculation that HC Clayton Bates, who took over 3/2020, has had some kind of influence on a house cleaning. Broncos went 5-16 this season. He replaced Steve Hawkins, who had two bad years after a pretty successful run. It does not appear "the entire Western Michigan team is transferring out."

And now we return to our regularly-scheduled programming, i.e., wonder how many of NIU's players will seek other venues.

Taeshon Cherry 6’8 220lb Junior forward from ASU just entered the transfer portal. He was highly recruited out of high school (most likely by Coach Burno). He averaged 3.9 points and 2.3 rebounds. Will be interesting to see if he makes his way to NIU
