Time to start recruiting hard workers that can defend and shoot three. Realize it isn't going to happen here by getting high end talent. Need 4 year guys that want to work their behind off and can shoot the ball and are willing to absolutely lock down guys on defense. Chasing the apple hasn't worked for Richard. He needs to identify the exact type of player he needs to fit his system and get them here and coach them up. One of the main problems I've seen with his rosters over the years is that the sum of all parts is not always greater than the talent of the individual. There seems to be no plan. If he can't change this, he will likely not be successful here. As of now, it is obvious high end players will not pick the U when they are offered by almost any other program that has any type of success whatsoever.

Walton or Sibley are both still available and wanted! Either or is still a possibility.
Not sure if this was posted or not, but Sibley is off the board.

Are we sure pitino is done with 2019? Some crazy things going on in basketball as the transfer portal is already growing
ISU/Prohm lost two of his four freshmen just as the season was starting and prohm mentioned maybe taking a mid year transfer

They already gave the open scholarship to Rudrud. Can't imagine they'd pull it from under him.

Watched the CDH vs Minnehaha game last night. Lots of talent all over the floor.

where ever Hadley ends up going he is gonna be a bucket getter for sure!

I don't get it with Hadley, seems like he could at least be a mid major prospect, but he barely has any offers.

Hadley D’d up Holmgren blocked his shot three times. Good player he is a tweener best position at times is power forward.

Just watched an extended highlight video of that game. Sad I didn't watch it, looks like it was very intense and hard fought.

He's not 2020 but I really hope Holloman comes here. I have to imagine Izzo is gonna really come after him. He's the next Cassius Winston. Hard nosed, tough, wears his emotion on his sleeve and is a true floor general. Pitino needs to be relentless on his recruiting, Holloman is a 4 year starter imo.

His jumper is his Achilles needs to work on it everything else is there. If he develops a jumper he could be Cassius like- not saying Cassius but like him if he does not he could be Tum Tum like- not saying he is Tum Tum. The kid is 15!

Any word on another big we are pursuing? I was hoping we could make a run at someone who could contribute right away. We could very well end up with another run at a Grad Transfer (or maybe a juco?).
