Wondering if MTSU jumped in with a new coach there.

I know everyone seems to feel you can't tell much from highlight videos. But I saw this guys video a couple days ago. I thought, I'd really like to have a player like him. He only had and offer from Omaha (He is a Junior) Well Drake offered yesterday. He really looks like a high energy player with a lot of talent to me. I have a feeling he will end up a high major player.

Arop looks like an AMAZING athlete, and is considered the top player in NE in his class. By his own admission he needs to work on his shot and other basics... Makes me wonder if he's a Saihou Jassey or Shayok Shayok type. I'd imagine if this kid puts in the work over this summer he could potentially catch the eye of a few high majors.

Sit one to play one transfers that average 9 ppg are totally worth it, especially if you can pluck him from the 300th best team in the country!. Can’t wait for them to roll out that dynamic backcourt in another year. They’ll be deadly from 3.

We really aren’t in a very good position to be making fun of anyone else’s backcourt. We had the worst collection of guards in the Valley last year, and have only added a football player that had no D1 basketball offers and Antoine Pittman to that group thus far. Not exactly a needle moving group here.

In a worst case scenario, BU can walk away from Pittman (graduates) and Brummet (transfer) if they aren’t a good fit after 1 year. ISU has these two for at least two years before they know if they’re worth it.

BU didnt offer Boyd after having him on campus.

Two transfer guards from two of the worst teams in D1 isn’t exactly a haul. I’d take BU’s Pitt/Brummet combo over that.

Drake is in complete rebuild mode...a total dumpster fire...and they get a First Team JUCO All-American...ranked as the 20th best JUCO player in the country.

Must be nice.

Of course, I'm sure Wardle will say that we never offered him, weren't interested in him, he didn't fit into our culture because he asked if there were any other small forwards on our roster with remaining eligibility, etc....blah blah blah...

Frustrating.

In fairness to Bradley--the twins were a package deal. Of course if they weren't Tremell would be at Oregon or San Diego State.

FWIW, their juco coach and Drake's coach Darian DeVries go way back together. Grew up about 20 miles apart.

ER3. Bradley did want Tremell Murphy. They did not want Anthony Murphy at this stage. As mentioned, if it were just Tremell Murphy he wouldn’t be at Drake. But good job by Devries to offer both.

Reading really would help me sometimes. Sheesh that one was obvious. SMH...

It's TWINS week in the MVC.

After Drake signed the Murphy twins Missouri State signed the Wojcik twins from Poland. They have been playing for a Club team in France. Supposedly decent players.

Worth noting he is the high school teammate of one of our current offers Isaiah Mosley.

Maybe this is how Drake really got the twins?

Especially African kids named NDiaye who played prep basketball in Florida. Best in the MVC at that.
