If Diallo doesn't commit to UConn are these the other recruits available?

    I get that, but...it's very abnormal for a kid to cut a school and then re-add them back on. I think it's been six months to a year since Ollie has contacted some of those guys.

    There is no backup plan. We had the whole staff in december go watch diallo play, they put all their eggs in this basket. They haven't recruited anyone else at his position since maybe hammonds, though he's more of a forward.

    My (uninformed) guess is that they turn up the heat on Olden, the JUCO kid.

    I'd bring in the freshman plus two grad. Players if I was KO just to assure that this disaster doesn't happen again. I'd even recruit walk ons and develop the intramural teams after this mess of a season.

    I don't think its that unreasonable to assume that some kids might consider coming to UConn if suddenly contacted and recruited hard as a result of a spot opening up we were saving for a Diallo. I'm not talking top sought after talent, but maybe a diamond in the rough, we could be pretty deep at the guard spots however, but maybe a big??

    I don't think we need diamonds in the rough. We need a wing who can come off a screen and knock down a 3-pointer, and a big who can rotate and rebound.

    EDIT: And just so it's clear, I think that both Vital & Jackson will shoot the ball much better next season than they have this year (look at Jalen's jump in shooting %). I'm less convinced that guys like Enoch, Durham, Diarra, Polley & Carleton will be our answer in the paint.

    All are currently uncommitted. And we don't even need a big man coach to coach them up.

    I'm in favor of having a certain guy from Aiken SC grow a mustache, and enroll as Alan Ray.

    Whether or not Diallo commits...I think they need to focus on Mo Bamba. I know it'd be a tough get, but why not put on the full court press? They really need a stud big man. Ive heard he's a bit raw, but he wouldn't be rated #4 overall if he wasn't a beast. I'm with Matrim. I think Jackson and Vital's shooting will be much improved next yr.
