The prep idea came from grades/test scores just as much as any scholarship or roster balance and that is a guarantee. The Pac 12 is worse than weak, it is historically bad this year. They are a power 5 conference that is or should be a 1 bid league this year. A 9-11 B10 team beat the top team in the Pac 12 and I'd argue that Nebraska, Rutger, or Illinois would have at minimum 10 wins in that conference this year. Colorado has a 10% chance to make the NCAA tourney and that is with probably one of the weaker bubbles we've ever seen. Again I'm not saying McKinley is a terrible player or person by any means, he's just not a savior or a huge miss or one that has gotten away yet. There are other guards who can be just as good that we can get. I'm also am saying that Wrights stats are inflated/cushioned by playing weaker competition.
    OK will agree to disagree. I've seen McKinley play 10+ times for CU and firmly believe he would've been a huge difference maker for us.

    I saw Wright a ton in HS and have watched him in college as well (Not 10+, but closer to 5-6 so I do value/respect your opinion). Considering our guard depth, you're not wrong and I do agree with you for the most part. It probably depends on what our definitions of a "huge" difference maker is. He's a good player no doubt and he'd play a lot/probably start/be a 6th man at worst (play starters mins), but that's cause we are not great either. I don't think he gives us a ton of more wins and his statistics would be drastically different is my point. Also he's most likely not like he's an NBA guy yet (nor do I think he will be personally). 2 maybe 3 more wins (Better than Dupree for sure, equal to a Gabe) more at most this year, last year who knows due to injuries and it wouldn't have mattered anyhow.

    The main point for me is I think we can still find guys that can fill those type of roles (Williams might who knows). I'm always happy to see MN kids be successful and am very happy for Wright. He's a great fit at Colorado and having success there personally, so I am happy for him as he's a great kid.

    Is the expectation that the ncaa will continue to loosen the the rules allowing transfers to play immediately? And clarify the conditions that would allow a transfer to play immediately (reduce the guessing by coaches)?

    They will most likely pass that in the event of a coaching change of any kind that you can go without sitting out. They will keep grad transfer as is. They will not adopt that you can just transfer and will keep hardship as is.

    Another offer has been made to a JUCO, Sean McNeil.
    https://twitter.com/SeanMcNeil22/sta...525376/photo/1

    Looks like a scorer.
    6'4" (don't know if that's in shoes or not)
    high of 55 pts in a game (he's also gone for 47 and 40 pts in other games from a quick glance)
    averages 29.7 pts/gm
    43 3pt%

    What makes us think we can get McNeil open looks we can't get for Kalesheur?

    At least his girlfriend has potential.

    Next year we will have a legit PG and if you look at his range, he can pull the trigger 4 ft behind the the 3pt line.

    Maybe he is a better at getting his own shot than gabe

    Highlights show some sick range for Sean.

    Finally some recruiting news instead of peeps bickering at each other.

    Team needs a big. Hopefully Freeman is gettable.

    And McNeil, if he can shoot and play some D, I'd be happy. Next season Carr is going to help a ton. I bet Gabe K finds lot more open shots next year.

    We could really use a JUCO PF bruiser like Jason Stamper. Murphy is tough but not a brusier. And with him graduating, they really need a bruiser. Bring some toughness to the squad, not to mention depth because all we have is Oturu. Cant count on Curry with his failing healht

    Kalesheur is always on the floor without anyone else who can really shoot. Having more shooters should spread the defense and open up the driving lanes for everyone.

    Agreed- this is welcome progress as there are needs in both front and back court next year.

    Gotta wonder if there were 'concerns' about Pitino being let go being circulated in the recruiting circles.

    Regardless, happy that there are solid players looking at us and hope to land some quality depth.
