Be a monster get. Was really under utilized by Nevada this year. Nevada just liked using more experience players. Don’t think we really have a chance at him but he would be a Home run get.
Can he play quarterback?

No kidding...we need to find a backup yesterday!
Dang, 3M! You beat me to it! Good on you.
Especially if they also play QB.
There's no points for second place, gentlemen.
It took me about half the article to realize this wasnt a QB-transfer thread, though 6'11'' is a bit tall for a QB.
A 6’ 11” QB, has there ever been one in the NCAA? /s
I think Dan McGuire was 6’-9”
Can he play QB?
I seriously thought this was in regards to a QB. I saw “6’11” and my eyes nearly popped out. It wasn’t until I got all the way down to “averaged 3 points” then I felt sooooo stupid.
I love the idea of going after this guy, but what does that do for Diallo. If we collect Brown, then we have a RS Soph in Brown for the 2020 season and a true Soph in Diallo for the 2020 season. Both are not going to get starter minutes...so what goes down?
I think Brown would be an animal, but what does that do for the trust of other recruits? I don't know.
I trust Holtmann though.
2019 Starting Center might be in Europe, shared minutes to both.
Given that Brown will be visiting the likes of UK, I wouldn't worry about it too much.
the empire never ended
It's probably a long shot that Brown comes here, but I actually think it would be an ideal situation.
I don't think that even if Kaleb slims down quite a bit and improves his game, his stock will be much different now than it is after his Junior year, which means the G-League or Europe would be his likely destination. But I have a hunch Kaleb is gone after his Junior year. Not sure how many kids have tested the NBA waters twice and returned both times, but I doubt the percentage is very high. And with Andre graduating and a 4th year of getting double teamed and beat up in the Big 10, making a little money playing basketball (even if it is not the NBA) probably will look pretty appealing.
So if he does leave, the only sure bets we have are a raw sophomore in Diallo and a couple of PFs in Liddell and Young playing the 5. Holtmann would more than likely bring in another PF/C, but it is not like we have the inside track on any 5 star center. So we would be looking at playing either Diallo or a true frosh like John Hugley 20 plus mins a game at the 5, which neither may be ready for.
If you bring in Brown, you got a guy likely able to play 20-25 mins a game, Diallo could play 10-15, and maybe a few mins a game with Young or Liddell at the 5.
I play, coach stays. He goes, I go.
