Huge news! Dare I say he is an upgrade over Mike? I hope we put the last scholarship to good use too!

6'10", 235 lb rim protector. Yes, please. Applying for immediate eligibility. LSU fans not happy. Louisville and Indiana were also recruiting him. Two years to play.

Wonder if any Cunninghams were involved.

Still plenty of "ifs" but I sure hope he is granted immediate eligibility and gets to play with everyone that will be coming back this season, if there is a season. With all the scorers already on the roster, I think he may well be the big we were missing last year and a great replacement for Mike.

Right. But any way you look at it, we've got a nice big for two years. Something we've been sorely lacking since, well, I suppose Markus Kennedy (though he was undersized as a 5).

That is really big news.

IF he were eligible this season, he would immediately start ahead of Jasey in a rotation. Chargois and Ray would back up Hunt at the 4. All of a sudden, we have a big team with really strong guard play.

THIS STORY cites a June 16 Jon Rothstein tweet that claims Anei will be available immediately.

If all of those programs or even some of them had shown interest in Anei, have to give Jank and his staff a lot of credit for this pickup!

Alright alright alright no one [deleted] about Jank more than me and for months I complained about him not running anyone off and improving the frontcourt depth; this is a legit pickup. Hopefully this dude can be what Jasey was supposed to be last year. Now if we could just put one or two others through the portal and add some more depth to replace Mike....

We still have one more scholarship to give. If we use it properly this team could be stacked. It would be nice to run off one more player to land a top flight sit out transfer and improve roster management. It would also be nice to start hearing some positive news regarding the 2021 class given how many scholarships we will have to fill.

You've gotta love this guy....and also the fact that he's been rejecting Frog shots already for two years.


The swap for Mike really changes the look and abilities of the roster. I hope there's a season.
Party at The Wopper!
