I really like the scholarship grid that's posted throughout these threads at times. Can that be pinned in any way in this recruiting thread?

The grid has its own thread

Still hoping to hear what BU’s giddiness was on that PC. Intriguing minds hope its a star player.
We did have a freshman transfer McDonald's top-25 guy at a position of need announce at about the same time that he was taking a Zoom meeting with just one school.

Where do we stand and who/what do we need? So many unknowns right now with draft, transfer portal, seniors returning, etc. However, in order for this to be a sustainable program year in and year out, we have to get pieces.

Most likely in for next year:
PG - Curbelo, Padilla
G - Goode, Grandison, Miller, Hutch
F - Giorgi, Melendez, Hawkins, Serven
C- Lieb, Hamlin

Possible?
G- Frazier, DMFW
F - BBV
C- 🤴 Kofi

Biggest need - Center

Open recruitment we are in on:
PG - Jalen Blakes, Yerald Mieses
SG- Jaden Hardy, Wesley Cardet, Brandon Podziemski
F- Kordell Charles, Tevin Smith, Nate Santos
C - Holmgren, Charles Bediako, Deiman Reyes

What else is out there?
Michael Foster is everyone's pipe dream.

Transfer Portal - Numari Burnett

It will be popping with no sitting out! Wild ride ahead, keep all arms and legs inside at all times.

Pods is the 1st I think to commit from the above listed. He said first couple weeks of March.

We may need to get in on Abiodun Adegoke, 7' 9" teenager!

If Kofi doesn't come back next year, and we don't pick up a transfer, I would pencil in Giorgi as our starting center.

Thank you for posting actual recruiting insight and questions in the recruiting thread.

Clearly need a big boy to come in if Kofi decides to go. Burnett and E. Boakye would be best case scenario. Will be surprising to see what happens in the Wild West of the transfer portal this year.

Forgot about Boayke, possibly a reclass. Surely a veteran big will see what has happened with Kofi and be interested in transferring.

Add Krutwig from Loyola to this list. Mutual interest both ways.
