I think there is a good chance honestly.  If Keon was completely sold on "staying in state" then Vandy would be on the table still.  However, because of the coaching change and us picking up Diebler and the trajectory of the program and Holtmann being Holtmann, I think we have a really good shot.

Here's to hoping he comes up north on August 6!

I think this will be a tough get...but YES PLEASE!!!!  I love a Guard/Wing that can play with the ball in his hands, can attack the basket and can shoot the J.  It is no wonder he is a Top 30 prospect.  If we get him for 2020, that would be 4 Top 30 prospects (yes, I know all 3 2019 recruits dropped from the Top 30, but they were all in the Top 30 when they committed) in two years.  That is HUGE recruiting by Holtmann and great hiring as well.

Every Day I am more and more excited by Holt & Co

Love seeing this early!  Would love to see all 3 top players from Ohio in the 2021 class.  He is probably going to grow a little more and bulk up.  Huge commit for Holtmann!

Keep the train running!!!

Holtmann wants one sit out transfer each year.  It gives them a year to be “honed” into the program and adds instant leadership when they become eligible.

Sueing needs to work on his effort especially on defense (gets caught standing around a lot) based on film.  A year under Holt & Co and he spell big trouble for the rest of the B1G in 2020.  

Also, it puts us ahead of others in case any of the other players transfer next year.  Already have a body on board.

I trust Holtmann.  I think this would be a good get, he would be a RS Junior in 2020 bringing leadership and an attacking wing.

I trust that by bringing in a “sit-out” transfer every year, Holtmann may be trying to get out in front of the transfer portal issue that we are starting to see.  

Trust the process!!

Great Analysis...I think this roster (assuming the returners make strides forward and the young guys come in ready to play) affords us the ability to adapt to any team we play.  If we need to go Big..we have Kaleb, Kyle, Alonzo, and EJ...along with Diallo.  If we need to go small, we have CJ, DJ, Duane, Lu, Dre, Moose and Ahrens that can all contribute.  I think this year might be pretty exciting...but we won't know more until the whole crew is on campus in June.

I am excited for CJ to don the Scarlet and Gray.  I am thinking he will be the Day 1 starter for the Basketbucks and will see significant minutes.  I would expect CJ, Lu, Dre, Kyle and Kaleb to start....DJ, Duane, Musa/Ahrens, Liddell and Alonzo to get minutes too.  I don't think Holtmann was kidding when he said he wanted to be able to go 9-10 deep in the rotation.  I doubt we see a ton of CJ and DJ on the floor together unless Holtmann decides to go small, where we would see CJ, DJ, Lu/Duane, Dre/Ahrens/Liddell, and Young at the 5...but I think having rested ball handlers that can facilitate and attack for 40 minutes will greatly improve our team.

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 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.
