Committed to SMU. 4 star recruit out of high school, good three point shooter. Sit one play 2. Pretty good get for Jank.

Great land. Still need to add another immediate contributor guard but really quality pickup. Looks like a taller/better defensive version of McMurray.

Huge pickup! I’m starting to feel better about Jankovich. I hope we land another if not 2 more and force some attrition.

The roster makeover continues. This is great news.

More please.

Only worth running guys off if we have a replacement of course, but Douglas really doesn’t seem to be worth a scholly at this point.

Hopefully the appeal will go through and he can play this year.

Wonder if he met with Sonny while on campus?

Cal players Justice Sueing (Cal's top scorer) and 7 foot 3 frosh Center Connor Vanover also in the transfer pool.

Connor originally signed with Tubby at Memphis before getting release when Tubby was fired.

Perhaps McNeill can help recruit now!

Looks like a good get. If he can bring Vanover, it could be huge.

Thanks Jank & KT. This is a very good addition. One more like this and I think we
might play in the post season. Taz would be great. I read somewhere that he might
make his decision this week.

Tajzmel picked West Virginia yesterday. Apparently he wasn’t a priority for us as Jalen Harris and Admon Gilder are still available.

They better be right in their ability to land Harris and/or Gilder. If so then this roster makeover will be really intriguing. But if they can't land those guys while saying "no thanks" to Taz then once again we'll be left questioning our fearless leader.

Don't blame 'em. Cal was quite possibly the worst college basketball team in the nation last year

Really unusual stat line. McNeil had 11 games over 15 points per game and 8 games at 5 or under points per game-and he played minutes in those games too. Needs to become a more consistent player but has shown he can put up great numbers. I'd say that's about as big a performance variance as you'll likely see and it really doesn't appear to be related to the caliber of the competition as he had great games against better teams and disappeared against poor teams and vice-versa

He should fit right in then!

we consider Chargois and Mike inconsistent but both had 10 games over 15 and only 2 games at 5 or less points. McNeil sets a new standard-4 times more inconsistent as Chargois and Mike-but they all ended up in that 11-12 point range
