A soph from my hometown, I'll have to make some calls and see what I can dig up on this young gentleman!
That’s my hometown too...but I’m too old to remember anyone to talk to

So I know people have a lot of questions about who is coming and going, here is what I have heard recently:

Trent-He should be back. Should finalize it soon.

Damonte-Hearing Monte is more on the fence than Kofi, but the Trent thing has him leaning towards coming back. Still not 100% but looks good right now.

Kofi-Expect to declare for the draft, and maintain eligibility. Been told that he is more likely to come back and the players think the same.

Adam-This changes daily. I would say it is 60/40 in favor of him coming back, but would not be surprised either way.

Tre Mitchell-This is an interesting one. If his relative does not get hired by a power 5 staff, I like our chances.

Ty Ty-Ship has sailed from what I have heard. Would be shocked to see him end up at Illinois.

Storr-Possible reclass, but depends on a couple of things.

Ntambwe-Staff loves his game. Can shoot it well.

Plummer-Likely done with the Trent news and if Miller stays. If Trent stays and Miller leaves, could be a chance.

There is a couple of good combo guards they are also interested in. Like Plummer, depends on decisions.

Should be more good news coming soon;) I-L-L
Tre Mitchell would be huge for this year. What are you feeling on Mitchell? Also where is 0440 been? I miss his input. Lville thanks for all your updates and in put. Always look forward to your comments.

Any word on any more potential transfers out?

Do you know anything about Jereme Richmond?

And are you going to sit a senior Tisdale for an 18 year old Meyers Leonard?

These aren't rhetorical, by the way.
I love this. If Leonard belonged the floor, he’d have been on the floor.

I'm excited about what Goode and Podz will bring to the team, but I'm most excited about Melendez's potential. He could be a real x-factor for us.
I think by year 2 and added weight he could be the better of 3 but think he will struggle a little early just due to weight while other 2 are known as shooters w size.

Just in case you thought this wasn't Loyalty...we get a great class addition today....and three pages of arguing about Weber vs. BU recruiting.

Yeah.

Great post. Given the Podz commitment AJ Storr will not reclass. Expect him to attend IMG this HS season and develop his GUARD skills

With these quality players coming in and those staying, it would be great for BU to have the talent to play a rotation of +10 next year!!! Maybe we could press some.
