Absurd to be this ambiguous
it means we have a chance, at least. the real life situation might not lend itself to any more clarity at this early date. either way it's great to see

I know he was pretty good the year before, but Eaddy was so mediocre last year. It's hard to believe we can't recruit someone better than that.
Yeah agreed. If you want a small guard that can shoot, Kelly from QU makes more sense to me. Better career 3P% and I don’t think either is coming here for their defensive prowess. In general, I think these types should be back up options more so than primary targets.

kelly was a -4 dbpm in a terrible conference.

Now he’d be in the NBE.

that’s really concerning to me. Especially after losing vital.

By DBPM he was 2nd best on the team to Marfo though. QU was a horrible defensive team so with Marfo as the exception (driven by DReb%), I’d expect all of their defensive numbers to be terrible, especially if you adjust for SOS.

I agree that he’d be a negative on that end, but if you play the matchups well enough you can hide that at times, and it would be nice to have a proven 40% 3P shooter to go to.

I agree that our priority shouldn’t be with either he or Eaddy. Just saying we could definitely do worse and I think he’d be more useful than Anderson was.

What do you think the thinking with the eaddy offer was? Strictly a depth piece?

I personally would prefer McGowens rather than Eaddy but at the end of the day I trust who Hurley pull in

Apologies if this was already covered, but does anyone know why he redshirted his freshman year? Was it injury related? Seems odd if it was developmental as he was a good recruit and had a pretty developed body.

I think McGowens maybe looking for playing time. That wouldn’t be readily available here with Nolley in the fold

Looks like it as an academic qualifying issue because of an ACT score.

Sort of. McGowen is a 2/3 and Nolley a 3/4. Not as much overlap as you'd think. I am sure we're recruiting Nolley to play the 4.

McGowen has a harder road to playing time--Bouk/Adams both will play 2/3 with Jackson getting minutes mostly at the 3 (maybe some small ball 4) too. But he's better than Adams and could push him out a bit.

My guess is they all played at the 2/3/4.. (so, 120 mins available


Bouk-25 mins @ the 2
Adams--10 mins at the 3
Mcgowen--10 mins @ the 2, 15 @ the 3
Jackson--15 mins at the 3, 5 mins at the 4
Polley-- 10 mins @ the 4 (more later in the season as he heals, potentially.. kind of accounting for injury here)
Nolley-- 25 mins @ the 4

Our positions are fluid and interchangeable. Thinking more about defense with that.

I’d take him with Nolley without hesitation. We’d be one of the most versatile teams in the country

Nolley doesn't want to play the 4 though. Labels probably don't matter much because Hurley wants to play positionless basketball.

And that’s without accounting for Akok’s mid season return. I think Polley may be the easiest sell on less minutes because of his injury. But this is a problem elite programs have. Someone that’s really good is going to be on the bench
