Africa, Europe, Australia, North America on current team
Have we had a player from South America since the great Carlos Thumm? Ever from Asia?

Looking forward to the media dept doing a deeper dive on the kid.

It is such a surprise.
This move is a risk unless he slides right into a redshirt(at which point he would have 4 more years of eligibility).
If he plays we are paying a half a season of eligibility to get this young man right now.

Obviously happy to get another ballhandler right now.

Here is some tape from the U16 Euro Championship
from 2 years ago & some from this year. Reminds me
a lot of the guard Northeastern had (Pusica) during
our CAA championship year.

We have 9 returners including Bolon & 1 commit in Jordan Crawford.
That leaves us three ships to give.

I could see us possibly sign 1 more freshmen, but I would anticipate everyone else coming through the portal.

Verbal Commits is reporting that Brenden Tucker has entered the transfer portal. Interested to hear why he is leaving since he had a pretty big role in the team this year.

We've got 5 scholarships to give, so I would anticipate we'll be talking to lots of guys in the portal. I'm interested to see what PK puts together. Based upon the quality of player he brought in last summer with very little notice, I am very hopeful.

We are in the final 4 schools for 2023 big man Gus Yalden. He’s a big 6’8 with skill - they call him the baby Jokic. Recruiting world rumor mill is that he will pick Wisconsin, but at least we still have a chance.

Yalden will announce his decision this coming Tuesday. I may be too optimistic but it is an interesting CofC is a finalist for a highly-recruited big man. Yalden is the 125th ranked overall player in the 2023 class and 16th ranked center in the country according Badger Notes newsletter. Yalden visited the CofC campus and I am hoping he might want to spend the next few years in a warmer climate than Wisconsin. Apparently, UW pitched the hometown hero idea to him.

Top 100 recruit. Had offers from 8 high majors. Highest rated recruit since Baru. Staff is really excited about him. Seems like a great player with massive upside and a really good kid. Happy for PK and his staff.

Cougs get another big commitment from James Scott, 6-10 big from NC. AAU teammate of Wol.

This is really, really promising. Being top 5 for Yalden, then getting Wol and Scott this early I think shows that recruits believe in PK and Charleston. It’s happening folks.

Could the trifecta happen? Freddie Dilione looks like he might be the best of the bunch potentially. Could Kelsey get all 3 from the same team and have instant chemistry in 2023?
