I felt that way before, but I think Hima looks like he’ll be fine?Hopefully they portal a center, I don’t think it’s worth picking up another project on top of hima and Carey
Thats not a bad take, especially if hima can bulk up to like 240, he might be able to go up a bit stronger offensivelyI felt that way before, but I think Hima looks like he’ll be fine?
He’s already looking like a very good rebounder and potentially elite defender. He’s had a few rough moments where he’s blown easy ones, but I think he’ll at least be able to finish around the basket as he gains experience…he’s got the athleticism and size to do so.
Might be better off trying to bring in a freshman who can compete with Carey for the backup spot, and hope at least one of the two develops into the eventual starter a few years down the road?
Let's hope that saving a few spots for the portal while waiting to see how the roster attrition shakes out IS the plan.Twelve players on scholarship, none of them exhausting eligibility this year thanks to covid. Obviously there will be attrition, but no certainty who, or at what positions. Couldn't close the deal with any of our priority targets, so do you just take roster fillers at this point, or save a spot or two for the portal?
I agree 100% And I think there should be there should be a announcement at some point from JB as well as the athletic director because they haven't said that before actually twice and you still here so you got to have some kind of announcement from his boss to give that announcement of some kind of levity
well, we landed two top 50 recruits the past two recruiting cycles, so there’s that… Do you mean for 2023? I don’t disagree that JB has allowed recruiting to stagnate for years, refuses to truly mine the portal for difference-making talent, and the uncertainty about a succession plan has become untenable. But even with that, we’re still pulling in some highly rated recruits. It’s just not consistent enough, almost solely b/c of JB.I mean….would you come here if you were a top 50 player? I love Cuse but I certainly wouldnt
God help us if we run this roster backTwelve players on scholarship, none of them exhausting eligibility this year thanks to covid.

Either Benny develops, or we bring in a 4 man who can give us 12 and 8 with good defense. That’s how I see it.I agree. There are pieces to work with, but definitely need to bring in a star forward. If Judah stays along with the rest of the freshman class and Hima, then we have some talent.
Not if the new coach has established connections.Does anyone really believe that the recruiting situation will change overnight with the introduction of a new head coach especially one outside the Syracuse Family?
I don’t. It will take a new head coach a minimum of 2 years, possibly 3 years to build up their own recruiting following? That does not mean that they will be able to attract the top 50-100 recruits.
Exactly. I know he wasn’t a head coach but think about the connections Troy Weaver had and how quickly he got us into it with Billy and Melo. I still believe if Weaver had stayed a couple more seasons we would have gotten Durant and Michael Beasley as well.Not if the new coach has established connections.
