Does anybody know the other "mentor" that was with Cockburn? Kareem Memminger his AAU Rens coach was one of them.

Too bad recruits can't sign until, April. From what i read he and his mentor sounded highly interested. Much more so than the usual talk after a visit. So much can happen between now and April.

They tried to get Kofi in earlier. Kofi was, but FL Atlantic was not available earlier on the schedule.

If Cockburn has committed as of right now as Loren said why does he not give a verbal commit on the " Official Twitter" like January has done? Sure is easy to make a statement and twist it around when the real truth neither has signed and only one was a verbal by the recruit himself !

As bad of a situation as we're currently in on January 1, 2019, it could improve 100 times if Kofi ends up here next year and the roster remains in tack. Add January to the mix and it's a totally different team. For starters, Georgi could play in more of a position he's suited for.

Recruit the studs from the Juco ranks for now, IF we miss out on Kofi, and IF something goes awry with January? If that happens, I would say use Feliz as an example: (plenty of playing time, allowed to utilized his game, etc) and get the top ranked JUCO guys to be added to whatever other recruits we have a chance for.

Freshman for the most part, outside of Trent's hero ball (thank god we have that at times), have proven to struggle, get some more experienced players. Some of these guys were highly ranked from high school and had to go the Juco route, doesn't make them any more less talented in the long run?
