Faulkner will be speaking at the Curbstone coaches today.  We should have better understanding of the season and recruits.  He should have a few players present I would guess.

One of the reporters quoted coach Faulkner that he'll have 2-3 more players committed within the next 72 hours.  I thought they only had room for two.     Said that Toledo and W Michigan will be at Beeghly this upcoming season.

My count has us at 11 scholarships with two openings.   I think we need a little muscle at the forward position.   We have enough pt guards and off guards.   Small forwards are set and we have the bigs in the post to protect the rim.
On paper it looks like a nice roster similar to what coach C would of brought in the last couple of seasons.  You don't win championships on paper so like almost every other team in the portal era we need to see how the chemistry comes together.
I'm the glass is half full type but I'm really excited on the way coach Faulkner is structuring this program.  Have some guys coming in with D1 experience that have a history of scoring the ball.

Played one season at Louisiana and one at Eastern Washington.  Averaged 20 points a game at his NAIA school.

We also offered Juco from Coffeyville jc a Cris Carroll.  6-6 230.  Not to shabby.

I started putting him in as a commit and realized it was just an offer.  He looks good but has some decent other offers but would fit in nicely.

A note on Nelson is that he was a starter for Richmond 2 seasons ago which is an Atlantic 10 school so this guy brings some value.   I know some do not like 3 schools in 3 years but this is the NIL/portal era.

Does anyone know if we will get a point guard or power forward in the current recruiting class?  Verbal committs has just the 3 we signed this past week.  2 transfers and a freshman from Chicago.  Anyone hear of any rumors??

Ty Harper was supposed to visit this past week.   6-3 guard  from a NAIA school that averaged 22pg a game. He previously played  D1 at Lousiana and Eastern Washington.   Saw it on line but no other info.

I saw that YSU received two  transfer commits from Notre Dame college (D2).  One was a wr that had 0 stats,the other is a DB that had 16 tackles for the season.  I hope there is something more than their numbers.

Nice get...now we need a point guard or two. More forwards as well.  I think we need 4 or 5 more to sign.

Agree.   

As of right now we have seven players on scholarship.

PG David Wilkerson
SG/wing E.J. Farmer
SG/wing Siem Ujitendaal
SG/wing Elijah Guillory
Forward Christian Kirkland
Center Gabe Dymes
Center Imanuel Zorgvol

Both Depante and Fryda are listed as walk-ons.   Looks like there is room for 6 more players either from HS or the portal.  Need another pq at a minimum and probably two.   Power forward/muscle down low is a must.

Siem looks like he can shoot it from deep and from watching his video that he has a decent B-ball IQ.   Videos are deceiving but he looks like he can help.  Second on a 14-18 team in scoring at 13 pt a game and I read he set a school record his Jr year with 10 3s in a game.    Scored 24 vs  Robert Morris and 16 vs CSU last season.

Where are the signings for Men's basketball??  Any??

I probably shouldn't get impatient but I'm seeing other programs getting transfers and we're at zero.   I just saw that Tahj Staveske transferred  to CSU and he was a guy that I was hoping we would get.   I felt more secure in this process with coach Cahoun than I do with coach Falkner based on his past track record although I know Falkner deserves a chance an I hope to see it.
