Significant addition to the team. A proven shooter. +80% Free Throws. Getting an his experience will help the incoming freshmen by giving them a role model. I like him!

Yup. I’d bet so. The most minutes he’s played was 2.5% this year in a heavily shortened season (Patriot League only played conference games this year).

Doesn’t hurt either to have an experienced walk-on in the fold. Do we have any returning walkons?

A grad tx walk on. Is this a first in basketball history. At least does not count against a ship.

Speaking of walk on tx did Mcginnis get a ship anywhere. Last I saw he was leaving us

Looks like Gray must have been lead recruiter because Western offered him as well.

Reading what was said about him my guess he is a redshirt this year. You never know until they show up though. Hope all our freshmen get here for summer school

I know we could sign severely more but this brings total ships to 13. Be surprised if our coach wants more than this. Trying to keep 13 happy is difficult

Just read 'Sooley' by John Grisham. What some basketball players from Africa have going on with their families back home terrifying. Baru had some of that at Ivory Coast.
