Liddell planning on visiting Ohio State tomorrow unofficially.

Look for him to cut his list after Peach Jam, Ohio State is still the one to watch from everything I have gathered.

I haven’t followed recruiting lately... are there any 5th year transfer bigs out there still? We have 3 open schollies for 2018-19 now, I can’t imagine we aren’t going to fill at least 2 of those with new players, right?

We’ve got a decent amount to sell I’d say: big ten, lots of TV, Maui, guaranteed major pt, surrounded by talented guards, potential “missing piece” to successful season

I just don’t have any idea if there’s anyone out there even. I’ll keep my fingers crossed...

Jeff Finke would be one of the very few who would know better than me on that question. I would have assumed KG was ahead of Easy E.

I don't. It looks reactive to me. Recruiting is a rough game, so I'm not about to second guess it. If the staff has made mistakes, I imagine they're learning what they can, and giving it everything they have to bring in upper tier talent.

We have 2 big guys on the roster, one of which is an intriguing 7 footer, so that's a start. The turnover is hard to get my head around though.

Obviously, we're in scramble mode for 2018 bigs. Gotta land 2. Grad transfer and a project? (project: cause all that's left is scraps). At least our net is large. Going to be an interesting summer.
