Grady was done pretty quickly to UK. Even with strong interest from us (which I don't know that we did), I think he was just too hot a name.What happened to Grady and Ingram? Did we show any interest at all?
Sorry I see Grady is at KU. Hope we at least took a swing.
Jolly to Iona. Pitino also nabbed Tulsa’s starting PG Elijah Joiner.Shooting guard alert:
SMU’s Tyson Jolly hit the portal. Only 8 games played this year and his stats were underwhelming, but Jolly’s stats from last year look promising: 14.5p, 6.2r, 2.3a, 38.2 3p%.
6’4 190 incoming senior. Would definitely be happy to have Jolly in the mix.
Thanks Zionn...great info. Don't want to pry, but is this domino a specific player or are you saying you're just expecting us to add one additional player along the way but not sure who?Richmond was a swing and miss. Staff went aggressive to show interest but too little too late. Move was set before our real pitch. Locke was a solid attempt, but up against # of options. Not sure a true love fest from either side. Still advise to hold tight and let process play out. No need to hang off a ledge. A healthy Polley return has a lot of smoke at the moment. Still expect an additional domino to fall our way.
If you’re a 18-22 year old male college student who lives a CERTAIN lifestyle then UF is a godsend and heaven on earth TRUST ME LOLAnother top 50 recruit to bail on White and he gets CJ Felder to replace him.
How does a coach explain so many top 50 players leaving in the past year and his mediocre record in the SEC?
What would make players want to go there?
Definitely impressive. I've really been looking forward to trying to go to the Iona game at Quinnipiac next year. Should be a fun experience to see Pitino coach in such a small building, especially if his team is legit good.Jolly to Iona. Pitino also nabbed Tulsa’s starting PG Elijah Joiner.
Say what you want about the AAC, but Iona’s starting backcourt now includes two 10+ ppg scorers out of the AAC. Pretty impressive and definitely will try to catch them live this upcoming season.
@Zionn must have me ignored, I can’t see any of his posts. Idk if I offended him at some time, or how I could have. If someone could please ask him to unblock me, it’d be greatly appreciated. I’ve always valued his insight & info on the BYThanks Zionn...great info.

You have this backwards. If someone ignores you then you can still see their posts. If you ignore Zionn then you wouldn't see his posts.
I've been preaching this need all off season and told to just be patient. I fear Hurley just isnt a transfer guy and we won't add anyone of significance. If that happens i'll be disappointed. We need to be going for it imoWe have a really solid nucleus returning. Super strong at the 4/5 with Sanogo, Whaley, Akok, Springs and Johnson.
I think Martin and Cole are best served as 4th/5th options or super subs. Cole struggles against top competition. He would be an amazing John Gwynn off the bench.
I worry that Hurley is really loyal to some under-talented but "his guys" and we just go in with what we had. Or even if we add pieces, they aren't the Richmond/Locke upgrade types.
I think loyalty is a great trait but in college basketball, you need to have a little mercenary too. Calhoun recruited over guys all the time, may the best man win. I remember being so excited when we got Marcus White out of Chicago. A year later, we had Boone and CV.
We're gonna score 50-60 ppg with this roster next year against good teams. No one can create a shot at guard.
True, but there are so many spots available with Martin/Verge/Woods graduating and Christopher likely hitting the NBA and others tranferring.
Bobby Hurley doing well in the transfer portal plus the addition of Enoch Boakye for 2022.
