    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 agree. Ribs and brisket, preferably.
