This is interesting. Good size and good scoring output for a freshman, but his shooting percentages aren't great. Maybe we think that they will go up if he's more a secondary or tertiary option.

We land Nolley, we're a top 15 team immediately. Cole + Bouknight + Nolley with Gaffney, Adams, Jackson, and Polley off the bench. Throw in Whaley, a grad transfer, Springs, and Carlton. Sweet baby Jesus, please!!
Yeah, he’s immediately top of my list. A big body that can bang down low a bit, rebound, and is still skilled enough to help spread the floor. Hurley could get creative with some skilled and very long guard/wing-heavy lineups.

frankly even if he wants to play the wing, hurleys offense lets the 4 basically play a 3 on offense. See polley.

The-Boneyard hot stove is the best
Especially THIS hot stove season - after the way this last year ended, combined with our move to the most competitive basketball conference in the country, the renewal of some of our most favorite rivalries and back in a conference tournament at The Garden where we belong (can't wait to be there again)... the excitement amongst the fan base and particularly most of us here on the 'Yard is palpable.

And frankly, for good reason. We already believe we will be competitive going into next year. Add one of the transfers bantered about over the last few days (Nolley, Russell, Aiken) along with one more significant big man and we become legit Top 25, maybe more.

It feels soooooooooo good to be "On the Come" as they say in casino parlance after the last 5 years.

Can't wait to have our top-notch coaching staff round out our team for next year and then get them ready to explode back into the national conversation again.

Why the chatter on him being immediately eligible? Just if the rule change goes through? There's no "special" situation with him, right?

I mean don't want to kick others out of the lineup but with his thickness/size you could see a Cole, Bouk, Jackson, Nolley, Whaley line up on occasion which would completely be a mismatch almost everywhere.

Here's hoping!

Would love to have him but he has to change the way he plays. He can’t be a ball stop, iso player who needs 16 shots per game.

I like how Landers plays through contact and scores with his midrange game. Really nice shot he has, very fluid, smooth.
