Another big guard. HCAK seems to be leaning toward size in the backcourt. Love it...

Is this a shift in strategy, away from Portal Combat?

I think he will still try to work his magic, we have been very fortunate, however it's a risk, because you never know what it's gonna look like until the season in over. I think he is signing portal type talent, without the last minute pressure. This will probably allow him to be even more selective come Portal Season.

I assume Kennedy is going after the guys he feels best fit his system, regardless of where they come from. We now have freshmen coming in, and juco transfers, and portal transfers. It seems like a good mix overall, and the program will be more stable because of it.

I think the early portal usage was strictly to get a team together that he felt would be immediately competitive. Now that he’s gotten there, he is building an actual program. I’m very excited about how things are going with basketball under Kennedy.

Alejandro Vasquez

I like his 3pt and FT shooting % with the Bonnies. Sometimes players can develop a perimeter shot after they hit college but most of the time they can either shoot it or they can't.

Can't believe no one has mentioned... the fact that he played at Salt Lake CC. That's where Squeaky played before he came to UAB.

You certainly won't need to force him to go to the weight room.

I think it's great that we have two signees from the same prep that Jelly went to. It seems like he has let them know that "AK is who you want to play for."
