That website with the predictions has 8 out of 8 Seton Hall...all in the past 2 days. Not good.

Grad transfer anyone or are we done?

Surprised because Seton Hall does not really need a PF. They have Taurean Thompson who could be there 3 more years plus others. Seems like there might be shortage at C.

Seems low probability for him to commit to Syracuse due to lack of a visit.

Players don't want to compete for playing time, they want instant plug in and go playing time.
Pretty much why I would doubt he's coming here. Besides the obvious, that he never even visited. He's looking at PC back, and potentially(and hopefully) fully healthy Sidibe. He would have close to a zero chance of ever touching the floor for us next year.

PC has 1 year left and Sidibe has been injured almost all year. Honestly can't imagine there are too many good teams with a less threatening depth chart at the 5. Seton Hall as Thompson and another 6'10 Freshman that is getting 10 mins per game this year. I guess he can get backup mins at the 5 probably for them right away.

Agree with Iommi above--oh well. I'm sure that our coaching staff will be scouring the international ranks to see if they can mine a quality big. Otherwise, they'll pocket it for the class of 2019.

Next.

Would of been nice to have but not a big of a loss. With PC and BS coming back we will be ok, I don't think Marek is going any where either so he will be the center in a pinch. I like that they jumped into the recruiting battle for the kid but I think we were a bit too late. Moving forward I would really like to see them target a traditional transfer (ie. PC or Hughes) at the center position to come in, sit a year, grow and learn the system, if anyone solid becomes available. If not its on to 2019.
