Said Vanderbilt needed help at point guard.

Will we sign anyone else for the 2019 class? If Simi and Garland both leave with Toye graduating we will be in the same position as this year. Would be nice to land a true “back to the basket” big man that can dominate in the paint.

Late bloomer, 2018 highlights look great. Nice looking form on his jumper!

I think this is a reason why we will continue to give CBD a lot of chances to show he is the man for the job. The simple fact is that regardless of his on court style, his personality and sales pitch resonates with very high level recruits.

While this year has been unfortunate due to the injury of Garland, we will almost certainly not always be this young, and based on the past two seasons, will continue to upgrade the talent within the program. That does imply that success is coming even if we have to allow CBD to adjust to coaching this level of talent.

Excited to have Scotty on board! Think our incoming class looks great. Would we have enough scholarships for all three if only Joe were to leave? May be wrong, but thought we only had one open scholarship, two after Joe leaves.

Not sure about numbers, but if anyone is counting on Garland returning, you shouldn't count him in for next year. He will be gone.

Definitely wasn't counting on him returning, but it would be even crazier for us to not leave a scholarship open for him than it would be for us to count him as coming back.

True. Unless he has already told coaching staff he plans to declare.

Love all of your posts Jason, and respect your thoughts and insights....I believe that Drew will recruit well, which you must do to compete in the SEC...but so will UK, Tenn, LSU, OM, MSU, Ala., UF, ....given equal talent how do you think Drew does against a very strong coaching field in the SEC?....again, based on how he has utilized what he has had and what he has now, I have doubts....
