Thread: 2019 Offseason thread

    2019 Offseason thread

    Arkansas-little rock guard Rayjon Tucker has decided to leave as a grad transfer (20 points, 7 boards last year, 40% from the arc). Our staff has contacted him to gauge interest, along with many others.

    Other guys we are recruiting at this point are juco guards Rayquan Evans Tajzmel sherman. Both bring unique skillsets that would be beneficial. Also have an offer out to 2019 top 100 high school guard Harlond Beverly. I dont expect we will even get a visit there, but this could be another Vante Hendrix, so you never know.

    Pretty good information, even from a shill. Thanks!

    DrumNFeather mentioned that his name has been on there for a while; even during the season, I believe.

    We are about to enter the annual transfer market explosion, right? It's, like, what, 500 players per year?

    In the last couple of years, we are closer to 800, rising each year.

    So does he need to sit out a whole year now, or is he eligible mid-season?

    If this was just about playing time, he was short-sighted. He'd be in line for a ton of minutes next season.

    I was at the first round NCAA games & came away thinking the Utes have to be bigger next year. The better teams had at least 2 big guys that could rebound. Not sure starting Tillman & Allen will work. Not sure how they both get enough minutes, not sure they can guard a 2.

    The big Finn is supposedly a great rebound-er, dare I suggest an Alex Jensen type player, ( I know that is close to sacrilege). If true, that would be a solid front-court when teamed up with either Headband Jayce or the Hat at the 5.

    most teams ran the same offense as the Utes, But their bigs held the screens longer--instead of slipping (for the pass that never came from the Ute guards), so the guards could cut hard to the hoop.

    Tillman and Allen can work just fine if the guard play is good enough. There are a thousand ways to have a good basketball team, and 90% of them involve good guard play.

    Our friends to the south are in some trouble. Their recruiting over the last 3 years has been pretty bad. Thatll catch up at some point; a lot like our misses in 2016 and 2017 are hurting us now.

    Instead of playing in Europe why doesnt childs transfer to a different program like Reed Travis?

    The last remaining zoob in my life is an old guy at church. He says that Yoeli is married and that his wife won't finish at BYU for another year. In that situation, it either makes sense to stay or to start making money.

    I find it mildly interesting that in 3 consecutive seasons, their best player has left early, each with very little hope of the NBA. Is this more prominent across college basketball than I realize?

    Most players transfer but stay in college. What they did is not very common, unless they expect to get drafted but don't.

    Right, I just cant imagine any of them really thought theyd get drafted. I suppose they had eyes on a european paycheck. YC could still get drafted, but I doubt it. Interesting situation happening there.

    Will he “graduate” this year—if not, then another year will not really make him a better player for the pros, so he might as well start earning money. The only reason to transfer would be like Reed Travis & play for a championship. But Travis has a Stanford degree already, os maybe he will make more money in business rather than Euro BB.?

    Reed majored in Science, Technology, and Society, which is the jock major at Stanford. I'm guessing he'll be making his money through basketball.

    Thanks.

    Too bad it didn't work here. Hopefully, this'll be the spot for taz or a grad transfer. The initial wave of transfers tends to be announced all together. Hopefully this yeat it's limited to this.

    Lou Dort is heading to the NBA and hiring an agent. Tres Tinkle will go through the process.

    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.
