    I don't get these unhinged sky is falling people. Just yesterday we had someone post that the Gophers were going to be terrible for the next 5 years, based upon the recruiting class of Williams and Freeman. First off a 4 star and a 3 star is not a disaster, but then to not even bother to wait and see who else would be signed is ridiculous. Now we have a class of two 4 stars and a 3 star and still could sign more. When was the last time we have had a class like that?

    Also need to consider that we have two transfer and sit (new school red shirt) guards that will be playing with this class! That is 5 very good players, and we will be adding more!

    Me neither. Some have been calling it a disaster for months. I get being nervous, but coming to extreme conclusions long before it's finished is odd.

    Does that surprise you? It's akin to freaking out after they lost to Illinois. Let the season play out. Let the recruiting cycle play out.

    Draw your conclusions after the season and/or after the spring recruit cycle has dried up. Fans are way too knee-jerk in general.

    These are things only golfers understand. Don't quit after a double or triple bogey. Play all 18 holes and see what happens!

    Maybe that's my problem bga1! I'll have to try that tonight at men's league!

    Easier for me to do with the Gophers than with my golf game. Sadly.

    This thread has become so full of logic and reason that I’m not sure how to handle this.

    From my perspective, we count the sit-out guys in this class. That means we have thus far a 4-star wing (Williams), a 4-star wing/PF combo (Ihnen), a 3-star center (Freeman), a 3-star combo guard (Willis), and I’m going to call him a 4-star PG in Carr. No idea what he was rated out of high school, but he is ready to plug in as a solid starter next year, and in my book that is a 4-star recruit. Three 4-star and two 3-star guys as new players. Granted, two or three of these guys will need some seasoning, but that is almost always the case. Hopefully more to come!

    Carr was a 4 Star on Rivals & a 3 star on 247 I believe.

    either way when you look at the sit out guys we are adding a lot of talent for next year

    Impossible to know at this point obviously. I'm certainly not going to project a big ten title, but a tournament berth isn't out of the question.

    Carr > Washington (should be a big improvement here)
    Williams <= McBrayer (Dupree didn't have a very good year last year, but still better than replacement for now)
    Freeman = Stockman in production given how little Matz played
    Willis > Stull
    Ihnen < Murphy
    Coffey at end of year > Coffey first 2.5 years (hopefully get more of the end of the year)

    Murphy is a huge loss obviously. Add a year of experience to Oturu/Kalscheur/Omersa and a healthy Curry (not banking on it). Some minutes from Hurt. Doesn't look bad on paper.

    This latest recruiting news has me pretty excited for next year. I think a true PF is still needed though to hedge for Curry possibly not making it back.

    If Coffey is back a top 5 finish isn't out of the question.

    Our best case scenario rotation right now would be something like:

    Starters:
    Carr
    Kalsheur
    Coffey
    Curry
    Oturu

    Bench:
    Willis
    Hurt
    Williams
    Ihnen
    Omersa
    Freeman

    That's a deep team. If Carr is as good as advertised and Oturu continues to develop we'll have plenty of scoring ability.

    per the U:

    Isaiah Ihnen Inks NLI with Gophers

    University of Minnesota head men's basketball coach Richard Pitino announced Wednesday the addition of Isaiah Ihnen, as the 6-9 forward from Boeblingen, Germany signed his National Letter of Intent to join the Gophers next season.

    "We are very excited about the addition of Isaiah to our program," Pitino said. "He's extremely versatile on the court and can play multiple positions."

    Ihnen is rated the No. 89-ranked prospect in the class of 2019 according to 247Sports, who also lists him as a four-star recruit. He is the second four-star recruit among the Gophers' signing class, joining fall signee Tre' Williams (Dallas, Texas/Wasatch Academy [Utah]).

    This past season, Ihnen played for the International Basketball Academy Munich (IBAM) team, where he averaged 13.6 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.0 blocks per game while shooting 54.3 percent from the field and 35.2 percent from beyond the 3-point arc. Ihnen is the team's top rebounder, second-leading shot blocker and third-leading scorer.

    "His potential is off the charts," Pitino added. "We expect Isaiah to come in and make a great impact on and off the court right when he steps on campus."

    Ihnen adds to the recruiting class that includes Williams and Sam Freeman (Dallas, Texas/Northwest HS), along with fellow newcomers Marcus Carr (Toronto, Ontario/Montverde Academy) and Payton Willis (Fayetteville, Ark./Fayetteville), who redshirted the 2018-19 season after transferring from Pittsburgh and Vanderbilt, respectively.

    Go Gophers!!
