Jiggets signed somewhere I believe. Who on this list willl GW get?

ziik the bureaucrat4/21/2017 2:26:35 PM

That's a nice shopping list

1

dmvpiranha4/21/2017 2:37:07 PM

Elijah Long isn't immediately eligible, but an intriguing name. Averaged 15 points per game last year at Mount St. Mary's as a sophomore.

1

the dude4/21/2017 2:45:50 PM

My guess is Jack Whitman signs with GW.

1

baccas924/21/2017 3:16:32 PM

I love Hamdy.  But I don't know how it works coming from VCU. 

1

bigfan4/21/2017 3:21:29 PM

Wonder why Handy would leave VCU. He got plenty of fouling, 'er playing, time.

the mv4/21/2017 3:26:30 PM

As a graduate transfer, a player is eligible to play right away and that includes transfers within the same conference.  As an example, Spike Albrecht played for Purdue this season after playing for Michigan the season prior.

the dude4/21/2017 3:31:09 PM

BACCAS, good to see you posting, board benefits greatly from your voice here.

Hans Brase would slot into Tyler's role rather nicely.  Prolific 6'8 shooter who has battled injuries but when healthy was one of the Ivy's better players.  We need to get more athletic at the Guard and Wing, but we need to replace Tyler's shooting in our Frontcourt.   Brase would be great for us if healthy, good rebounder too.

pj4/21/2017 7:01:09 PM

Lot of these guys are better than the guys GW lost to transfer. 

1

bobo4/22/2017 1:58:58 PM

It might be Jack Whitman, dude.  After doing nothing for 2 years at W&M, he did score in the post last year. But he's not the type of athlete that MoJo has been going after in his recent recruits.   

haha4/22/2017 2:53:42 PM

Seeing some good players on this list. Hope we can get one or two! 

the dude4/22/2017 2:59:56 PM

Bobo, that's surely true on both accounts.  I think at the 4/5 we're looking for scoring (see above Hans Blase as well) and at Guard/Wing to get more athletic.  Ideally both, but realistically one or the other, and those are the things this roster most needs, athleticism at the G/Wing, and scoring from the frontcourt.

the dude4/23/2017 1:08:54 AM

How about Maryland's Jaylen Brantley and give him 35 minutes a night at the point Guard.  I'm sure some BCS programs have inquired about him but how many can give him the opportunity to shine all game like we can?

 

1

maine colonial4/23/2017 8:39:41 PM

Brantley is signing with UMass, according to Verbal Commits.

maine colonial4/23/2017 8:42:07 PM

There should eventually be 300 more players adding their names to the list going by previous years.

thomas4/23/2017 9:53:57 PM

I think Brantley is from Massachusetts, and it seems as if everyone transferred out of UMass after Kellogg got fired so he should get big minutes there. I thought GW would be a good fit for him if he wanted to stay in the area, he showed some scoring ability during the 2nd half of the year for Maryland after not having a lot of opportunities before that.

About Jack Whitman, from what I've seen in the past, any mid-major player who puts up even decent numbers will end up at a BCS school. I figure the 10PPG/5.4Rebs/1.1Blks is enough to get him looks from BCS schools, it will just depend on whether he wants to be a role player at a BCS school or come to GW and be a key contributor on the team.

Jiggetts transferred to South Florida, they've signed 3 or 4 transfers already after a lot of their players transferred out when Brian Gregory took over.

gw05094/24/2017 10:36:19 AM

Whitman is visiting UNC this week per Rothstein

colonial ny4/24/2017 10:36:36 AM

Jack Whitman visiting North Carolina per Jon Rothstein: https://twitter.com/JonRothstein/status/856516037201801216 We might not be in the running on him (not even sure if we were pursuing).

ziik4/24/2017 10:40:12 AM

Maybe they try him out, then tell him GW is his best bet.

greenpoint ny4/24/2017 10:52:13 AM

UNC? Does he not want to play lol. This stuff confuses me..how do you go from GW to UNC? Please explain.

the mv4/24/2017 11:17:44 AM

Ask Damian Hollis.  He commited to GW and was then later offered by UNC.  He stood by his GW commitment.  Definitely deserved better than those final few years at GW.

Don't give up on Whitman yet.  The Dude believes he will sign with GW. 

1

bobo4/24/2017 11:29:00 AM

 How about James Daniel from Howard? 27.1 pts a game on .388 shooting.  Yikes.

greenpoint ny4/24/2017 11:33:41 AM

I'm ready to see a transfer commit (damn it) lol

thomas4/24/2017 1:17:55 PM

I believe Herve posted that James Daniel had a final list of teams that included mostly BCS schools, I think Ohio State and Michigan were 2 of them. I already pointed out that mid-major grad transfers who show the slightest amount of ability/talent(double-digit scoring) will end up with BCS interest, James Daniel led the nation in scoring as a JR so he's definitely going to end up at a BCS school. How he performs at his new school will be interesting to see.

1

the mv4/24/2017 2:18:48 PM

Most people don't know this but James Daniel actually played for GW a generation ago.  We used to call him SirValient or Val for short.

1

the dude4/24/2017 2:31:26 PM

Thomas, no doubt, agreed.  Ergo there is huge competition for all of these guys.  

thomas4/24/2017 3:01:24 PM

Let me also add that schools like GW can go after BCS guys who didn't play a lot who will see GW as an opportunity to showcase themselves. The guys on the list from Virginia, CAL, Washington, Michigan and Nebraska will probably transfer down a level. I wanted to point that out for those of you who may get discouraged when you see Jack Whitman, Stephan Jiggets and Khris Lane signing with BCS schools instead of GW. Two years ago, Sam Cassell Jr. couldn't get off the bench at UConn, last year he was one of the best players at Iona. I'm sure you'll see the same for several of these BCS players who barely played last year, I see these transfers as a win-win for all levels.

ziiks third cousin twice removed4/24/2017 3:08:42 PM

Didn't Sam stop for a cup of coffee at UMd, Thomas?

thomas4/24/2017 3:20:10 PM

Ziik,  yeah Sam Jr was only at Maryland in spirit as he was deemed ineligible at some point after the high school all-star games and before summer classes began. He didn't even get to enjoy that cup of coffee in College Park!!

ziik4/24/2017 4:12:53 PM

Also, I think, he spent some time in the slammer at a JUCCO.

(This, after putting all his eggs in the bball basket)

bigfan4/24/2017 6:04:16 PM

Jack Whitman would greatly devalue his William and Mary degree by signing onto North Carolina's  athletic dept. sham academic outlook. Would piss away years of hard work in a real academic environment.

And be buried on the bench.

In reality, GW is his only truly great option for playing time, advanced degree, proximity to William and Mary. And Jack Whitman should be smart enough to see that, so if he think it through like his well capable of, he will come to the right choice.

boom4/24/2017 9:09:29 PM

So today's signing of Nolan leaves three open scholarships for transfers?

old fan4/25/2017 12:48:12 AM

Casey Benson would be just terrific for GW 

2

boom4/25/2017 1:13:34 PM

Sold Sina, who turned out not so great, on Getting the rock for 32 minutes. We can do same on one of these pure points. Hopefully one who is much more athletic and better than Jaren but same sales pitch. For a Grad transfer looking to showcase pro skills it's a good sale. 

1

the dude4/25/2017 6:52:43 PM

Its a tall order going after these guys, for as Thomas has displayed the BCS gobbles them up, but we really do need immediately eligible guys this off-season.  

bo knows4/25/2017 7:00:36 PM

Not sure why we keep getting the question of how many scholarships. We have 13 total at any time. Currently, we have 6 returning scholarship players and 3 incoming freshmen = 9. 13-9 = 4 remaining scholarships for 2017-18.

Forgot to put my moniker. Since I am determined we get a foward/center I filtered the eligible transfers by position. Enjoy

the mv5/2/2017 4:01:01 PM

Read the last three posts on this thread, and then let's welcome Greenpoint NY to the ever-expanding list of phony Dude monikers.  Should we address Greenpoint NY by name, or maybe it makes more sense to call him #63 or whatever number of phony poster names The Dude is up to.

greenpoint ny5/2/2017 4:02:16 PM

MV thanks for the shout out. But im not the dude lol

the dude5/2/2017 4:10:35 PM

Good find Greenpoint, are all of these guys immediatley eligibles?

MV has by now accused everyone who has ever posted on this site of being me. Hilarious.

1

greenpoint ny5/2/2017 4:16:17 PM

Dude it said 5/2 on the post so I assume it is the latest. I took out all the guards to make it easier to read.

2

the mv5/2/2017 5:21:23 PM

The Dude writes "on to the next targets on this list", then produces the list in the next post but forgets to include a poster name, and then posts under Greenpoint NY that he "forgot to include his moniker" before telling us to "enjoy" the list.

I'm not making an accusation Dude; I'm stating a fact.  You fucked up.

4

ruserious5/2/2017 5:29:58 PM

I'm the last one to defend the dude, but MV you have been linked to several names on this site as well, yet you claim it's not true. So we're supposed to believe it about the dude but not you.

bo knows5/2/2017 5:33:03 PM

the dude5/2/2017 6:38:58 PM

Simple solution, stop attacking people's posts on a niche sports fan site MV.  I've long since stopped even reading your posts, find it hard to believe anyone here does, but I don't see anyone attacking you that still does. I do however see a lot of attacks from you, constantly.  

Give it a rest, for everyone's sake here.

the dude5/2/2017 11:28:32 PM

Greenpoint, these guys are all immediately eligible?

I would not filter out the Guards btw, I think we would strongly benefit from an immediately eligible PG. Any PG actually, Mojo seems to think so based on the all those HS PGs posted earlier today too.

2

the mv5/3/2017 10:05:37 AM

RUSerious, I am linked to what, maybe 5 other poster names here, while The Dude was linked to over 40?  RUSerious with your question?

My best guess is that I am linked to other individuals who post close in proximity to where I post, and with the same ISP.  This is what Herve's program is picking up on.  Do you think the same should be assumed of The Dude with roughly 50 different people?

And incidentally, The Dude has admitted to making up phony poster names here once Herve's program revealed what it did.  So there's another difference that perhaps should be considered an important difference.

hondo5/3/2017 1:20:46 PM

How about akoy agau from Georgetown?

Most player transfering is about matching playing level with playing ability.  That's why you see guys going from William and Mary to Kansas, Yale to UCONN (Sears) Dartmouth to GW, D3 to GW, and GW to Quinnipiac, GW to Cal St Northridge, GW to AU, etc. 

Some players transfer because they are unhappy, family issue, etc, and tend to make more lateral moves, the minority of cases. The vast majority though are moving up and down for better ability-to- level alignment.

Thomas/others, any of these guys stand out to you as good GW targets??

 

the dude5/14/2017 2:00:19 AM

Incoming immediately eligible transfer still needed ....

bigfan5/14/2017 3:44:33 PM

Or two preferably.

Starting to wonder if a pulse should be the major requirement.

gw05095/19/2017 12:45:53 PM

 Saw that Ray Kosongo is transferring from IA State and previously Tennessee. Immediately eligble. 6'9" forward from Canada.  Maybe MoJo can work that Canadian magic.

the dude5/19/2017 2:22:58 PM

You can bank on Steeves not being the last Canadian Mojo brings to GW.

bobo5/19/2017 4:21:56 PM

Since Lonergan recruited Steeves out of prep school and went hard after him at Harvard,  the NEXT Canadian recruit will be MoJo's FIRST Canadian recruit. 

3

ziik the bomb thrower5/19/2017 4:28:35 PM

I think you are being generous, Bobo

Folks in the know say that Steeves only showed up at GW after he was assured that Mojo would stay on only as the 3rd assistant. 

He was capable of scoring 15ppg, grabbing 6.5 rpg, and dishing 4 apg. But, he dragged his ass instead, because he just could not stand playing for Mojo.

Those are all facts

1

the dude5/19/2017 5:40:35 PM

Bobo claims Canadian Steeves for ML and not Mojo.  Not sure how you'd know who closed the deal, my $ is on the Canadian.  

Perhaps that's just wishful thinking, but it sure beats claiming anything good for ML and wrongly blaming anything that goes wrong on Mojo/GW AD office.

 

 

4

the mv5/19/2017 5:59:31 PM

As was stated in a different thread, it was Lonergan who recruited Steeves while Pat played for a prep school in Connecticut.  So you lose your money (yet again no doubt).

Not sure if he's immediately eligible, but Verbal Commits says JR 6'7" F Greg Malinowski is transferring from W&M.  TTO and Episcopal kid.  Can't find conformation on the web at at this time.  

2

bigfan5/26/2017 4:15:22 PM

Good find BM.

Not wowed, particulary because he's not big on the boards. But interestingly, look at his stats and he can shoot from the 3, which we desperately need.

Also if immediately eligible, he has played basketball and has a pulse, which works for us at the moment.

1

the dude5/26/2017 5:38:21 PM

Continuing a trend in targets:  Two types, more athletic guards, Frontcourt 3 point shooting.

dmvpiranha5/26/2017 5:56:26 PM

An updated look at immediately eligible players for next year still available (according to VC):

 

Akoy Agau  PF  RS JR  Georgetown

Bryan Alberts  PG  RS SO  Gonzaga

Keion Alexander  SF  RS JR  Morehead State

Brandon Alston  SG  JR  Lehigh

Jamir Andrews  SG  SR  Albany

Jamal Aytes  PF  RS JR  Brigham Young

Ryan Beddeo  PG  FR  Fresno State

Jake Coddington  SF  SR  Ole Miss

Dwight Coleby  PF  RS JR  Kansas

Miles Crawford  SG  RS FR  Loyola Marymount

Micah Goss  SG  RS JR  Norfolk State

Cole Harrison  C  SR  Dartmouth

Aaron Jackson  SF  RS JR  Akron

Cameron Johnson  SG  RS SO  Pittsburgh

Zach Lofton  SG  RS JR  Texas Southern

Jordan Madrid-Andrews  SF  SR  Chicago State

Kaelen Malone  PG  RS SO  Wichita State

Nick Malonga  SG  RS JR  North Florida

Jerron Martin  PG  RS JR  Texas Southern

MiKyle McIntosh  PF  RS JR  Illinois State

Rashad Muhammad  SG  RS JR  Miami (FL)

Wesley Myers  PG  RS JR  Maine

Tim Myles  PF  SR  Cal State Fullerton

Marko Pirovic  PF  RS JR  Maine

Troy Reid-Knight  PG  SR  Maine

Dustin Triano  SG  RS JR  Gonzaga

Darien Williams  PF  SR  St. John's

Dominique Williams  SG  RS JR  Radford

Lexus Williams  PG  RS JR  Valparaiso

Xavier Williams  PF  RS JR  Tennessee State

 

This list might not be completely accurate (I tried my best to remove players that have verbally committed to a school even if they haven't signed the LOI). Many of these players may choose to play down a level or two as well so there aren't really too many options left for us. 

2

bigfan5/26/2017 6:31:00 PM

Will take the best two (or even 3 with a SF) big men.

dmvpiranha5/26/2017 8:28:05 PM

Below are the players who put up some stats in the past couple years. 

PG

Wesley Myers (Maine) - 16.9 ppg 4.5 rpg 1.6 apg (could be a solid backup for us)

Lexus Williams (Valparaiso) - 5.2 ppg 2.2 rpg 2.0 apg (played a lot for Valpo last year)

Troy Reid-Knight (Maine) - put up no stats in 16-17. 4.8 ppg 2.2 rpg 1.2 apg in 15-16.

SG

Zach Lofton (Texas Southern) - 16.8 ppg 3.9 rpg 2.5 apg (kicked off team at Minnesota earlier)

Rashad Muhammad (Miami) - DNP last year. 13.9 ppg 3.3 rpg 1.1 apg while at San Jose St.

Cameron Johnson (Pittsburgh) - 11.9 ppg 4.5 rpg 2.3 apg (looks good on paper)

Dominique Williams (Radford) - DNP last season. 6.9 ppg 4.5 rpg 0.6 apg at FIU in 14-15. Local.

Brandon Alston (Lehigh) - 6.7 ppg 2.2 rpg 1.2 apg (he's a local guy too)

 

 

PF

MiKyle McIntosh (Illinois State) - 12.5 ppg 5.6 rpg 1.8 apg (looks to be a good player)

Marko Pirovic (Maine) - 6.1 ppg 3.8 rpg 0.7 apg (could be a role player)

Akoy Agau (Georgetown) - 4.5 ppg 4.3 rpg 0.9 apg (might do well in the A10)

Darien Williams (St. John's) - 3.8 ppg 2.6 rpg 0.2 apg (could also do well in the A10)

Jamal Aytes (BYU) - 2.1 ppg 1.2 rpg 0.2 apg

Dwight Coleby (Kansas) - 1.7 ppg 1.8 rpg 0.1 apg (might get more opportunity at GW)

C

Kameron Rooks (California) - 4.9 ppg 4.5 rpg 0.3 apg (could thrive at GW if given the chance)

dmvpiranha5/27/2017 4:46:11 PM

Agau committed to SMU today. Number of frontcourt options dropping. Carm did follow Rooks but I don't know if he's considering us. Hope we go after McIntosh. He's Canadian as well so maybe Mojo can pull some strings there.

ziik the tentmaker5/28/2017 5:46:10 PM

I wonder how many of these guys ever were recruited by GW. 

Or, even heard of GW.

1

gw725/30/2017 12:49:22 PM

How about Dustin Triano?  Or Cole Harrison keep the streak of Ivy transfers alive. 

5

dmvpiranha5/30/2017 8:53:06 PM

Triano and Harrison are more realistic gets than the ones named in my previous post that are likely going to big schools. Triano seemed to be lightly recruited out of high school and never averaged more than 1.5 points per game in a season at Gonzaga, likely one of the end-of-bench players. I'm not sure if he'll be ready to play heavy minutes at GW. Harrison has similar stats (1.7 PPG), with his numbers and playing time actually decreasing every season. I'm all for keeping the Ivy transfer pipeline going, but Steeves and Mitola were major contributors before coming to GW. Harrison doesn't fall under that category. I haven't seen any visits to GW for any of the players. One player that I forgot to include in the previous list that still hasn't committed to a school is Geno Thorpe but I don't think he's coming here. Jamal Aytes is heading to Southern Utah. I'll post the schools where some of these players have or are planning to visit. Will need to win major recruiting battles to land most of them.

Wesley Myers (Maine): DePaul, Texas Tech, Nevada, Boise State, New Mexico, Rice, Troy, Santa Clara, Nicholls State. Got into a fight with a teammate in February. Might be bad for team chemistry, may not. 

Lexus Williams (Valparaiso): Wisconsin, New Mexico State, Oakland, Boise State, Mississippi State

Bryan Alberts (Gonzaga): Long Beach State, VCU, FIU, UC Santa Barbara

Ryan Beddeo (Fresno State): Seattle, Colgate, Southern Utah

Zach Lofton (Texas Southern): Kicked off team in Minnesota. He declared for the NBA draft without an agent and I don't think he's withdrawn his name yet.

Rashad Muhammad (Miami): Interest from Georgia Tech, Western Kentucky, UNLV, Portland, Washington. He has been suspended twice (why he didn't play at all last season) so not sure we should be considering him anyways.

Cameron Johnson (Pittsburgh): Kentucky, UCLA, Arizona, Oregon, TCU, North Carolina. No chance for us.

Dominique Williams (Radford): Seemed to contribute at FIU. No interest that I can find. 

Brandon Alston (Lehigh): A great fit for GW. Local guy and good student. Offers from LSU, East Carolina, Delaware, Pacific, and UMass. Fordham and Bona showed interest as well. UMass seems to be in the lead to land him as of now.

Keion Alexander (Morehead State): Visiting Iona next week.

MiKyle McIntosh (Illinois State): Worked out with some NBA teams earlier in the month but seems to have opted to return for his senior year. I'm sure he'll get interest from schools like Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin. May consider an A10 school so we may have an outside chance.

Marko Pirovic (Maine): Also Canadian. Seems to be friends with Troy Reid-Knight and MiKyle McIntosh. No offers that I can see as of now. 6 points per game at Maine last season.

Darien Williams (St. John's): Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Nevada. The former two seem most likely currently.

Dwight Coleby (Kansas): SMU, Mississippi State, Illinois, Western Kentucky. The Hilltoppers are in the lead to get him. Speaking of recruiting, Western Kentucky has already landed two top 100 players for next season. Anything is possible I guess.

Kameron Rooks (California): Gonzaga, San Diego State, Connecticut, St. John's, Georgetown, Illinois, Iowa State, St. Louis, Clemson. Visits SDSU on June 1st.

Respecting Kameron Rooks and other bigs, I am guessing that Patrick and GU will again be in the running

DMV, you've outdone yourself, impressive and much appreciated, great stuff sir.

 

2

the mv5/31/2017 9:40:35 AM

A day away from the start of June makes it very late to expect any more high school signings (unless we have someone in mind but there may be admission difficulties).  We already have one transfer sitting out a year and I believe two open roster spots.  The point is that there is absolutely no reason why we shouldn't sign at least one graduate transfer to help fill out next year's roster.  I appreciate DMVPiranha's efforts but have also come to learn that there are many instances where a player hypothetically lists 5 schools under consideration only to sign with a 6th school. Collin Smith was a recent example of a recruit who most if not all of us hadn't heard of before he announced he was heading to GW.

2

ziik the tentmaker5/31/2017 11:54:59 AM

Among nomadic peoples, this period is known as the quiet before the storm.

The period when MV and Bo are not yelling "Hey Dude!!!" 

It is not such a bad period. Among our nomadic cousins.

Here, it is a so-so bad period.

3

dmvpiranha5/31/2017 7:16:02 PM

I'm hopeful that you're right MV. We lost so much scoring from last year that we can't afford to take just any grad transfer to fill up the roster. I'm hoping the staff is doing some work behind the scenes that isn't being reported right now. It's slightly concerning that our name is not linked with any transfer as of now. With such a young roster, we need a more experienced player who can give us some production more than other teams in the conference. The incoming freshman class will help, but it's tough to expect that several of them will develop into consistent scorers right away. The good news is that they will likely get to play through mistakes since the roster is so young. 

Some updates from today:

Jordan Madrid-Andrews (Chicago State): Will transfer to Robert Morris.

MiKyle McIntosh (Illinois State): Visits Oregon today. Already visited Oklahoma.

Darien Williams (St. John's): Visits Nevada June 9th.

Dwight Coleby (Kansas): Visits Louisiana-Monroe today and Arkansas-Little Rock on Sunday.

dmvpiranha6/2/2017 6:46:36 PM

6/2 Update - a couple more grad transfer opportunties:

Ryan Bernstein (Maine): It seems that everyone transferring from Maine is a grad transfer. 4.2 ppg 3.2 rpg 2.9 apg last year.

Drick Bernstine (North Dakota): 8.3 ppg 7.5 rpg 2.5 apg. Not bad at all even though it's against competition in the Big Sky conference.

Jake Fay (Hartford): Has played sparingly in his three seasons. First played at Fordham though, so I'm not sure what the eligibility is for coming to another A10 school even as a grad transfer.

Leland King II (Nevada): Originally played at Brown, so academics should not be an issue. 3.7 ppg 2.6 rpg 0.5 apg last year for the Wolf Pack. Opens up a scholarship for them to potentially land Darien Williams from St. John's. He's from California, so it depends on whether he would want to return east again.

Other transfer news:

Kameron Rooks (California) is heading to San Diego State.

MiKyle McIntosh is also visiting SMU in addition to Oklahoma and Oregon. There's a good chance he probably ends up at a big school.

2

bigfan6/2/2017 7:08:26 PM

dmvpiranha6/2/2017 9:21:02 PM

The Dude - thanks! It's more managable to keep track of the list right now compared to the beginning of the offseason since there are about 30 names or so to follow. It would be a lot more interesting if we were linked with any of the names though - espescially in the frontcourt. Most teams by now have at most 1 or 2 spots open so I would hope to at least see another signing before too long. I know Illinois has four spots open at the moment so at least we're not completely alone. I think Alston makes a lot of sense as a wing-type player though of course we need another big man and hopefully a point guard as well. 

3

bo knows6/3/2017 11:59:33 AM

We definitely need one more big and a veteran guard (a pg or a combo). Grad transfers are the way to go but it's getting late. Not impossible but late.

1

bigfan6/3/2017 3:56:21 PM

That would be an ideal shopping list. Or even two bigs. But an experienced PG would be nice

 

dmvpiranha6/5/2017 5:58:44 PM

6/5 Update

Jalyn Pennie (New Mexico State): 2.0 ppg 1.9 rpg 0.2 apg in 27 games last year. Seemed to have less of a role than the previous year. Averaged 6.4/4.1/1.2 in 15-16. A SG/SF wing-type player that would be beneficial but not an absolute need. From Toronto and did have offers from George Mason and Miami (FL) out of high school so there is potential there.

Brandon Alston (Lehigh): Will visit South Carolina 6/10. Also has an unofficial visit scheduled to Georgia Tech next week.

Zach Lofton (Texas Southern): Officially got his release today. There will likely be a lot of competition for him and I don't know if we take a chance on him given his previous suspension and all.

Geno Thorpe (South Florida): Visiting Syracuse Thursday and Friday. Seems like a good chance he is heading there. Also considering Pittsburgh.

Cameron Johnson (Pittsburgh): Recently took an official to North Carolina. Apparently is willing to sit a year out to switch teams within the ACC. Interesting as a grad transfer.

Lexus Williams (Valparaiso): Visiting Boise State tomorrow. Got an offer from Oakland after visiting. Will probably be making a decision very soon.

2

dmvpiranha6/9/2017 8:03:18 PM

6/9 Update

Lexus Williams (Valparaiso): Heading to Boise State.

Cameron Johnson (Pittsburgh): Cleared to play at UNC next year.

Geno Thorpe (South Florida): Will play at Syracuse next year. Quite the change in climate.

Drick Bernstine (North Dakota): Going west to play for Washington State.

Zach Lofton (Texas Southern): Has heard from NC State, Gonzaga, South Carolina, Pittsburgh, Nevada, Mississippi. Another candidate that will probably be heading to a big program.

Brandon Alston (Lehigh): His visit to South Carolina is an official one reportedly 6/10. There's a chance he could end up there.

Dwight Coleby (Kansas): Seems to be a three way race between Louisiana Monroe, Arkansas Little Rock, and Western Kentucky.

The number of immediately eligible impact players is very low at this point. Unless some players decide to transfer late (which is not entirely out of the question) it seems we're likely to just sign any grad transfers at this point. We would get the scholarships back for next year so I don't see why we wouldn't. Maybe one of the players will be a last second freshman commit (like Williams was) but more than five incoming freshman wouldn't be the best move. Hopefully we get a start earlier on grad transfers to balance the classes a bit next year since we won't have any seniors next year (as it stands now).

buff and blue bandit6/10/2017 1:28:53 AM

With the Butler head coach leaving for Ohio State, does anyone from Butler transfer? Does Paulie J follow his new coach? 

Will be interesting to follow.

the dude6/10/2017 1:58:34 AM

The A10 to the Big East was a strange move for a guy who in 2 years struggled in the A10. I'd think the Big 10 would be an even odder move.  Love Holtman, but man, hope this move means he stops recruiting out GW players!  The GW wheels began to fall off the day Kethan transfered out, instead of returning to what would have been a loaded GW team for his senior season.  

DMV, thx as always, great updates sir!

dmvpiranha6/10/2017 8:48:06 PM

6/10 Update

Darien Williams (St. John's): Transferring to Nevada.

Dwight Coleby (Kansas): Transferring to Western Kentucky. The coaching staff for WKU can really recruit.

2

dmvpiranha6/13/2017 8:20:17 PM

6/13 Update

Brandon Alston (Lehigh): Heading to Georgia Tech.

Nick Malonga (North Florida): Transferring to Division II Davenport.

Frank Booker (Florida Atlantic): Committed to South Carolina.

Bryan Alberts (Gonzaga): Down to Long Beach State, VCU, and Weber State. Didn't get a lot of time at Gonzaga but did well when he did play. 

Encouraging that Bo Zeigler is visiting us, especially since he's immediately eligible. Averaged about 5 points per game every season at South Florida. Shot well from the field, did not take all that many three pointers (was not a good shooter from deep) and was poor from the free throw line. Got about 20 minutes per game on a consistently bad South Florida team. It's probably wise to expect somewhat similar production. He might get a slight bump in playing time here since as it stands now but unless something drastically changes it's hard to expect him to be more than a supporting piece. Then again, there are pretty much no grad transfers left that won't fall under that category except maybe Lofton, McIntosh, and a couple of others.

2

dmvpiranha6/16/2017 12:40:00 AM

6/15 Update

Two more grad transfers off the list. Both headed to the beaver state.

MiKyle McIntosh (Illinois State): Will play for Oregon next year. Figured he would head to a bigger school.

Dustin Triano (Gonzaga): Headed to Division II Western Oregon.

porter716/16/2017 1:32:10 AM

The wheels began to fall off after Kethan transferred?  That team became one of the most memorable GW teams and went on to win the NIT.  You must have a different definition of wheels falling off than I do.

bigfan6/16/2017 3:14:23 AM

We don't seem to be doing well in the grad marketplace, as least from what we know. Hope we can turn it around.

Need a couple of rentals eligible for next year, ASAP.

Tall ones.

buff and blue bandit6/16/2017 10:30:50 AM

Not terribly surprised we are having some issues on the grad transfer or even normal transfer route. And it has nothing to do with Mojo's competence or future ability as a coach. It does however have to do with his years of recruiting experience.

You have to remember ML often went back to the well when it came to transfers. Most in recent years were guys he had either previously recruited or had a connection with several years prior.

Once Mojo has a few years under his belt as the lead recruiter, I think we can expect a better track record (if we even decide to go that route).

Only time will tell.

4

bobo6/16/2017 10:47:28 AM

Problem with that senario, B&BB is that if it takes MoJo 2-3 years to be able to recruit better, GW will perform below standard for those years and he'll be fired before any future recruiting success can be witnessed on the court.  

3

the mv6/16/2017 10:53:58 AM

That's an excellent point Bandit.  Not only does MoJo have a very limited amount of recruiting experience period, but also lacks a pipeline of prospects who he can realistically call upon in the graduate transfer market.  And, if you're dissatisfied with the caliber of recruit that this program has attracted over the past five years (anyone, anyone), well, it's these same coaches (MoJo, Hajj, Carm...Chris is more recent) who were previously under Lonergan who are still beating the bushes for GW today.  This is not to extricate ML from recruiting responsibility but it is to say that his assistants, by definition, had to have had a big role as well.

It is virtually impossible to reconcile being dissatisfied over the caliber of prospects in recent years with feeling happy that the coaching staff has remained in tact after ML's dismissal.  This represents one gigantic contradiction.

3

bigfan6/16/2017 2:52:40 PM

Certainly true.

Also this is the second time that Mojo's inexperience has been used to justify problems we are having, from transfers to not hiring new assistants. Both times the reason given was that Mojo doesn't have a network. Exactly.

Yet they are really giving more reasons why, though Mojo had a great future before this and hopefully can pull this out, it is odd that the third assistant was given the keys to the Cadillac (now a Yugo)in a no-bid hire withouot any thought of anyone else. And the whole staff was retained.

Mojo''s our man and stand behind him. But it is folly to ignore even the baffling chain of event

Look at the other A-10 hires.

Head Coach at GW is a desirable job, or was before. We didn't need to give it to someone who, no matter how much we all like and support him, wasn't ready to do it. Sorry, that's the reality.

 

 

2

the dude6/16/2017 3:03:05 PM

The previous 2 offseasons we signed none of the guys we were tracking on this site.  Instead we ended up with Ivy transfers Mitola and Steeves.  Both worked out quite well after slow starts.

Last offseason Spring, ML signed zero sit 1 play 2 guys, we've already signed Potter who looks like a great addition.  The activity of high level guys visiting has also been improved, but we've as of yet failed to seal the deal on immediately eligibles this year.
