Good Luck to him at UGA. RB is not a position I am super concerned about, but would have been a good addition.
Welcome to the Schott....Schott...Schott...Schott...Schott!
Sorry, that was the echo from the ginormous building you play in....hahahaha.
Source or link?
I think Gene said Thad would be involved in the coaching search...not necessarily in the coaching staff.
I do think Thad being an ambassador for the athletic dept would be awesome though...
I appreciate your assessment of Young and Goodwin as role players, but then Bazely, hunter and Nance are not game changers either. Someone like Dotson, Quinerly and Garland could be game changers.
I'm so pumped right now seeing this!!!
This is an instant impact. Welcome to Buckeye Nation Kyle!
Let's Go Bucks!
Thanks for the info...hopefully Holtmann can keep him in state. If not, I think there are some other good guards we can hopefully get.
That's interesting, I had not heard that. I think if Cohill goes to TX, Holtmann will add another guard. So far the offers have consisted of a PF, 2 SF and like 8 guards
Honestly, I have no idea, but I will take a stab.
I think we get Cohill, Hunter, Goodwin and Bingham Jr and a PG...Weaver, Muhammed, Dosunmu, Dotson, etc.
I don't see us taking more than 5 in the class.
Add Marcus Bingham Jr to the list of offers...6'10 PF from Grand Rapids. #76 overall in 2018.
Hearing the raw excitement and fire from the new coaching staff has me cautiously optimistic for this year and very optimistic for future years.
Someone mentioned in another thread that they weren't sure the Bucks would ever get back to 09-13 years where we were right around 30+ wins per year. If Holtmann can win 23, 22, and 25 games at Butler...I would imagine if he gets better recruits, etc. that we would easily be back to the near 30+ win mark at some point.
Holtmann cannot meet with him because he's already signed with a different school. The only thing he could've done was talk to him before he left. After that, it's all on Kyle Young. If he wants to follow his coach, he needs to ask out of his letter of intent, then commit and sign to Ohio State. Ohio State can't have any contact with him until that point.
I love the article and the energy coming from the team. One point of concern is Dave Richardson being retained, but based on early indications, if Holtmann doesn't like what is coming out of the weight room, I guarantee he(Richardson) wont be there long.
As for building trust and renewed excitement, I hope that continues and leads to good things this year, not just in the future.
There is definite work to do and I am waiting to see if we add more players to this class before I set my actual expectations for the W/L of the season. Yes, we lost Lyle and Thompson, but we gain K. Wesson and Funderburk (hopefully).
I think with the current roster, we can at least go .500, but won't say for sure until a little later this year.
Christian David is a 2/3 that Holtmann wanted at Butler...not sure if he would offer him to TOSU.
I really hope we get Young.
If we can add Christian David as well, who hasn't reaffirmed his commitment to Butler yet, that would be good too. 6'6 SG, #150ish. That would give guard depth as well.
I would agree that we really won't know who is in the class until they sign on the dotted line. First, Ahrens from what I can find was not offered by Holtmann when he was at Butler. As I said though, IF we get Young this year, and Holtmann wants Hunter who he did heavily recruit and who is rated higher than Ahrens...I doubt a coach is going to bring in 3 SF in a 2 year period.
Based on those assumptions, I don't think Ahrens gets back in the class...but I am not Chris Holtmann, so I have no idea what he will do.
I don't think Ahrens stays in the class either based on the players that are being offered, especially if we pick up Young this year.
I feel bad for him if he doesn't but it was by his own choosing.
I really am loving the BBall coverage...and am hoping for one or two more booms to come.
I think based on the flurry of recruiting coming in the first week that 60+ wins in the first 3 years is not unfathomable, if not more.
I wasn't sure with Thompson because he wasn't signed yet..,but I guess if he reaffirmed, then yeah, he's a bulldog.
No, he hasn't enrolled yet.
Been on twitter for a while...sorry if I don't follow you.
Can you create an "I'm here for the intrigue" meme...
Which we are you referring to? The getting more details, I mean general public.
or did you mean the hashtag...if so, I know I trust in Holtmann, I hope others do too, but I wasn't willing to assume.
Wow, I don't think we expected this immediate of an impact. I am sure we will get more details. #InHoltmannITrust
