If we land CJ and Langston, we're in the mix for an at-large bid. I think CJ is a long shot though, unfortunately. Hope I'm wrong.

I'll take Clark too. He's worth the risk.

all of those and cincy still wouldnt be close to a bid

cj just left a contender as a starter cincy in its current state is a pipe dream, clark is also extremely unlikely cincy joined his recruitment too late and has numerous texas offers (he is from texas)

I think CJ Fredrick is unlikely. I wouldn't call it a pipe dream. He's literally from across the river.

Are you referring to Tristan Clark? I think Langston Wilson is the top target at the 4. Not to say Clark is realistic, otherwise.

I'm not going to make any predictions on next year until I see the final roster. But I will say this - we had such a poorly constructed roster for a multitude of reasons and everyone hated the coach. So...

I'm not saying any of those guys are very likely. But now that we have enough guys to fill out a rotation, our staff can swing for the fences. If they miss out on the guys they were too late to get to, I think there will be other really talented guys hitting the portal over the next few weeks.

And I agree that Langston Wilson is far from a can't-miss prospect considering his production and minutes at the JUCO level don't jump off the page. He obviously has a ton of potential, but it's probably 50/50 if that potential will be realized at a high-major level.

JUCO big men are really hard to judge. Many JUCOs barely run anything you could call offense so it's normally heavily guard dominated. We've had really good luck with JUCO big men that didn't have stats that jump of the page either (Echenique is the most recent)

Now the cat is essentially out of the bag - first reported by Chad Brendel and now UGA's Rivals site is confirming:

Chad Dollar will be the 3rd assistant at UC. Tremendous recruiter with ties in the south. He has brought the following players to UGA, Auburn and Ga Tech:

Anthony Edwards - 5 star #1 overall pick
Chuma Okeke - 4 Star #15 overall pick
Josh Okogie - 3 star #20 overall pick
Davion Mitchell - 4 star future lottery pick

Other 4 stars:
Christian Brown
Jaykwon Walton
KD Johnson
Tounami Carrera

Probably the most accomplished recruiter we have had on staff since Tony Stubblefield (new head coach at Depaul) back in 2010

Being tied to Toumani Camara is interesting. I know he went into the portal and committed to Dayton. TBH, I don't know how the signing works with transfers, but I wonder if it's too late to try and change his mind. That would be a guy that would seemingly fit what we need at the 4 type slot. Probably can't happen, but interesting note.

TRANSFER PORTAL UPDATES:

Two freshmen guards reversed their decisions to transfer from Cincy:

Mike Saunders (15.5 mpg; 3.5 ppg; 1.4 rpg)

Mason Madsen (19.6 mpg; 6.5 ppg; 3.0 rpg)


https://news.yahoo.com/mason-madsen-rema...HsLIrINLR5


.

Transfers to Cincinnati:

Hayden Koval (7'1" Sr. C - UNCG) (19.6 mpg; 7 ppg; 3.8 rpg)

John Newman III (6-5 Sr. F - Clemson) (15.6 mpg; 3.7 ppg; 2 rpg)

.

Transfers from Cincinnati:

Tari Eason (4 stars; F) - LSU (19.6 mpg; 7.3 ppg; 5.9 rpg)

Zach Harvey (4 stars; G) - UCSB (16.3 mpg; 6.4 ppg; 1.2 rpg)

Gabe Madsen (3 stars; G) - Utah (6 mpg; 1.5 ppg; 1 rpg)

Mamoudou Diarra (3 stars; C) - uncommitted (8.7 mpg; 2.3 ppg; 2.1 rpg)

Chris Vogt (2.7 stars; C) - uncommitted (19.4 mpg; 5 ppg; 3.5 rpg)

.

So far, it appears that Cincy has replaced most of what it is losing in the transfer portal.

.

Current Roster:

1. David Dejuilius - Sr (PG) (29.5 mpg; 9.1 ppg; 4.5 rpg; 4.2 apg)

2. Hayden Koval - Senior © (19.6 mpg; 7 ppg; 3.8 rpg)

3. John Newman III - Senior (SF) (15.6 mpg; 3.7 ppg; 2 rpg)

4. Mike Adams-Woods - Junior (G) (29.7 mpg; 8.6 ppg; 2.5 rpg)

5. Rob Banks - Junior (SF) (4.5 mpg; 0 ppg; 1.4 rpg)

6. Jeremiah Davenport - Junior (PF/SF) (28.6 mpg; 11.7 ppg; 5 rpg)

7. Mason Madsen - Sophomore (G) (19.6 mpg; 6.5 ppg; 3.0 rpg)

8. Mike Saunders Jr. - Sophomore (PG) (15.5 mpg; 3.5 ppg; 1.4 rpg)

9. Viktor Lakhin - Freshman (6'11" C) (recruit from Russia)

NOTE: This information was reported today at this link:

https://247sports.com/college/cincinnati...07/?page=8

.

With 9 guys on their roster and at least one skilled player per position, things could be worse. Cincy should be able to fill their open roster spots, through the transfer portal.

Some of these guys will need to maximize their productivity in 2022-23, and the team is probably going to need to add a couple of scorers and rebounders in order for the Bearcats to have a successful season.

Exactly what kind of success they might be capable of having will depend on how they fill out their roster.

.

AAC is gonna be a bar fight next year. Not suitable for kids.


UPDATE: Cincinnati Enquirer

Wes Miller, Cincinnati Bearcats pick up commitment from former UNCG guard A.J. McGinnis

Keith Jenkins, Cincinnati Enquirer 2 hrs ago

McGinnis averaged more than six points per game for the Spartans last season as a freshman. He scored a career-high 14 points in 19 minutes in an 85-66 win on Feb. 3 at The Citadel.

McGinnis is the sixth commitment Miller has earned since taking over the Bearcats' program and the 11th scholarship player on Cincinnati's 2021-22 roster.

McGinnis joins guards David DeJulius, Jeremiah Davenport and Mika Adams-Woods, who are all expected to return next season.....accompanied by junior forward Rob Banks, sophomores Mike Saunders Jr. and Mason Madsen, 6-foot-11 sophomore forward Viktor Lakhin, Clemson transfer John Newman III, Hensley and Koval.

Banks was put on scholarship (NOTE: he's a walk-on).

Koval, a 7-foot-1, 220-pound graduate center from Prosper, Texas, announced his commitment to Cincinnati on Thursday, while Hensley, a 6-foot-8, 205-pound sophomore forward...announced he was joining Koval at UC... last week.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaabk/...r-BB1g77O4

.

Coach Miller stating that he hasn't given up on persuading guys like Tari Eason to return to the team.

It looks like he's got 10 of his 13 roster spots filled, which will help, but it's going to be a motley assortment of players. Four of the ten are young guys who have yet to show what they can do, and there isn't a lot of offensive firepower on the team at this point.

In addition, the decision to grant a scholarship to one of their walk-ons has also raised concerns among some Cincy fans.

Right now, if they don't add some scoring and rebounding prowess, such as Eason, it's looking like Cincy might be a middle of the pack team next season.

The fact that Miller seemed so intent - during his TV interview - on trying to bring Eason back may suggest that he's not having a lot of encouraging signals from the transfer portal.

However, my impressions are just that - - impressions. What do the Cincy fans here think?

Dayton was in his final 3 out of high school so I'd imagine he will stick with the Flyers.

One year ago, UConn stole our rock star strength & conditioning coach. As of today, we have stolen him back. Welcome home, Mike Rehfeldt. The offseason winning continues for UC hoops.
