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.

I missed the Canisius transfer from all the garbage posts.  Was starting to get little worried & still a bit am from the lack of signings.  Is Elijah Guillory still committed?

Need couple power forwards from the transfer portal, similar to those combos we had for the last two seasons.

Pretty impressive he was able to land two D2 head coaches as assistants on his staff. Obviously the situation at Notre Dame College, with it dissolving, helped Mark Richmond return here, but Dwaine Osborne's squad just went to the D2 Sweet 16 this past season. They went 29-5 this season.

Nice gets on the two.  Gives us 10 on roster now.  We need a power forward and 2 point guards through the portal or juco now.  No more freshman.

Maybe 9 total not including the walk-ons.

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.

 Elijah Guillory has signed his LOI.   A lot of  us were wondering but he's a Penguin.
