    Ridiculous depth? What are you talking about? We lose our best player next year and Dupree McBrayer for sure. We aren't even considered an NCAA tournament lock for THIS season, much less a B1G title contender. Hopefully, we are both of those things but that's not the perception right now.

    Next year? We have Washington, Carr, and Kalscheur in the backcourt with Coffey at SF and Curry, Oturu, and Omersa in the front court. That's 7 guys of that 7 the jury is still out on a number of those guys and the health of Curry will be a question mark until we see him get back to form. Behind those 7 we have two guys who have been ineffective at the college level in Hurt and Willis. Even if that top 7 works out, you still need at minimum one more nice piece...and then hope all 8 stay healthy. I would guess the Gophers wouldn't be in the top half of power 5 schools in terms of returning talent for the 2019-2020 season now. Obviously that could change drastically as the season plays out and we get a better grasp of the players on all rosters.

    Were doomed! Seriously though this kid reminds me of another player. Athletic, good shooter, smart and strong defensively. When said player was offered there were a few that looked at the offer list and wondered why are we involved? That player was Gabe Kalscheur and Im guessing everyone loves him now. So why dont we wait and see on Tre.

    What evidence is there that hes a good shooter? His EYBL statistics are pretty poor.

    Move Hurt to be an undersized Stretch 4 next year and his defense would look better as well as his athleticism at that position. Hed be all of 1-2 inch short from most college 4s but its possible hed be productive in that roll. Also wasnt that what he played in HS?

    Also good to get on the board. Hopefully he can be a defensive stopper for us.

    I'm liking the sound of this kid the more I read.

The Gophers offered this kid on his visit last weekend. What was he doing the weekend prior with signing day less than two weeks away? Visiting Pepperdine. There are 30 basketball commitments to B1G universities right now and Tre Williams ranks 30th out of 30.

    We aren't on Plan C, or even plan L on recruiting this cycle, we are on plan Z. Obviously, you hope for a miracle and this kid turns out to actually be good but the Gophers track record with kids who aren't recruited anywhere else is absolutely horrific. Names like Gaston Diedhiou, Maverick Ahanmisi, Chip Armelin...Even kids like Jamir Harris and Ahmad Gilbert had better recruiting profiles but were absolute non-factors at this level.
    Nice way to welcome a young man with his whole life ahead of him coming to our program.

    That's it, I'm calling up Tre Williams right now and telling him he needs to quit basketball because he's not a 4 or 5 star recruit. Gopherhole has spoken. In fact, I'm gonna call up Rick Barnes and tell him his #5 ranked Tennessee team needs to forfeit the rest of the season because they dont have a single top 100 recruit on that team. It's been decided on this board that you can never contribute to a college basketball team if you aren't recruited by Duke or Kentucky.

    Love your post, but it's really only two posters being absolute dicks about this kid. One a verified troll and another who can't see the forest for the trees with this program. We are headed places this year and the recruiting will work out.

    Nothing to get worked up over.

    Its possible Pitino may not even be here next season which means neither may this kid.
