Bragg is essentially out of the question now. We look at Mark Smith, Cam Johnson, James Daniel.
Per Adam Zagoria and Adam Jardy: Mark Smith will take his final visit to Ohio state this weekend. If he actually (his recruitment has been a emotional rollercoaster) come i believe He will leave Columbus with us right in the thick of things with Illinois and MSU. His mother stated she looks for a coach with a track record of building young men off the court, high character teammates/players and a family environment: that's 3 check marks for Thad we are a dark house and we may get a huge BOOM.
Cam Johnson(Pitt Grad transfer 2yrs El. &I immediately can play)- Jeff Goodman announced we are in his final 5-6 with Kentucky, UCLA, TCU etc. he's a 6'8 Scoring guard that would be a huge get for us.
MJ Walker- one of the highest ranked uncommitted players left in this class. Haven't heard much about his recruitment overall only place he's visited was Florida State: he's the most unrealistic option for us but would be thankful to have.
James Daniel(Grad transfer)- smaller guard from Howard people are skeptical about him but I think he would bring a different element to this team. We are missing a aggressive and explosive high competitive guard like him. My prediction is if we don't land Mark Smith we will land James Daniel.
My overall thoughts are I don't truly see us striking out completely we will bring in someone whether it's the people I've listed or someone from left field, we will have another new face on next years squad.
PS: I believe Trevor Thompson will be back:-)
