Alex Kline ‏@TheRecruitScoop  9m

Rice & George Washington offer 2015 PF Emmitt Holt of Albany City Rocks (NY).

Mysterious since we don't theoretically have any more 2015 Scholarships availble.

Who has a recipe for a good chicken carry-out shop? Maybe with jamocha shakes? I've never tried the jamocha.

Sorry, I meant to ask for a menu. There's got to be one around here somewhere.

Back to the original post... What if Goss only plays baseball his freshman year on scholarship resulting in a virtual redshirt bball season that doesn't use a 2015 scholarship? Wouldn't he still have 4 years of bball eligibility?

interesting theory CPots

GW did not offer Holt.  Don't believe everything you read.  Like someone saying "the jury is still out on Joe McDonald"!   ML would never put an offer out when he didn't have a scholly available.  He would never over-scholarship and would never run a player off.  Just because someone writes something on a message board or tweets it doesn't mean it is true.   Whether you like him or not the man believes in loyalty and commitment and never has and never will run someone off to sign someone else.  Unless you break school rules or break team rules he will stick with you for better or worse forever.  GW won't offer anyone else in the class of 2016.  Kline jumped the gun or got bad info.

I think the Alex Klines of the world get a lot of their info from coaches or handles, if not the recruits themselves.  But often reports of "offers" or interst are put out there to drum up interest among other schools.  If, say, Siena or Buffalo like the kid, but aren't sure whether to offer, hearing that ML wants the kid might be enough to convince them to offer or at least take a second look.

 

Herve, the most interesting stat to me is that the avearage thread is less than 4 1/2 posts.  I would have guessed more than that.

What happens if a current player transfers? Recruiting never stops and it helps to have a relationship with as many prospects as possible should a ship open up and there is a team need so I expect the staff to contiunue to work the 2015 class

I'd say more likely than not a current player transfers next year. Not sure if we can get anyone in the early period though if that's the case. Since there wouldn't be any scholarships open theoretically, not sure if a kid can sign a letter of intent. So we likely can pick up another body, hopefully a rim protector type which we are really lacking. Heard from friends at Kenner game Cimino is gonna need time to bulk up. Allergic to rebounding.

serious depth on that list.  wow what a transformation in 3 years.

transfers, leaving to play pro, graduation, being asked to leave. Programs do have attrition.

That says we have an open scholarship this year.

7/22/2014 12:41:20 AM - thinker - 2,574 posts (#9)

We technically do have a scholarship available this year - but only Kopriva is graduating and we have 2 commitments for next year. They could get a 5th year transger for this year but otherwise someone would have ot leave early to give out another scholarship for next year.

Would be thrilled to get a rental though suspect window has passed. But if it is use it or lose it, anyone with good character will do.

Scholarships still cost money to the athletic department/teams in the university bitcoin world. Don't use a scholarship, don't spend the money. If a player can't help in some way, no reason to use a scholarship.
