    Why this guy? Cuz he's interested. I'm sure we'd prefer the highly regarded PG who just committed to Georgetown.

    If he's meant to replace Jayce off the bench, it's good for him to have a similar game.

    Villanova won another championship using exactly one guy 6-9 or better...In fact, they don't have any guys bigger than 6-9 on their entire roster.
    How many of the sweet 16 teams had no one taller than 6'9" on the roster?

    Yeah, maybe 20 years ago that would have been good. Not now.

    I think you are expecting too much out of April. We had a great recruiting season. If we get anything out of anyone we are about to grab, it's a bonus. To get another Jayce? We'd do cartwheels over that.

    To be clear, I expect more of Battin as a freshman overall, but I expect it to be at the 4 position primarily, maybe exclusively. If Lahat is ready to contribute my completely uneducated guess is that he'd get minutes at center before Battin does due to his length, but that Battin would get more total minutes overall. Clear as mud, right?

    Brett went on to say that its down to us and Santa Clara. SC's advantages are that its where his family is from, and he knows he can get more time there. Advantages for the utes are that Larry is the coach and Pac-12 and all that.

    Good. I know nothing about him, but it's not hard to believe that he's an upgrade over Jokl.

    Like Diehard said, there is not one. My cedar city comment was a response to a discussion on a different thread.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    I guess that's where Ute Fan Cast heard it then.

    Utes offered 2018 6'6 wing Both Gach, who according to twitter is one of the hottest unsigned wings left on the board. Looks like he has offers from New Mexico, LMU, Portland state and has had Oregon and Texas Tech sniffing around as well.

    Grades are clearly an issue, and he knows it. Maybe it's a situation similar to what Doutrive went through?

    Caldwell to transfer...so makes sense that we are bringing guys in.

    Not surprised Caldwell is gone. I had figured it'd be either Caldwell or Pop.
