PG is a need, but I like where we are at the 2 if we get Bandoumel and Nutall back.

Point guard and power forward.


Wouldn't the guy from Louisville count as a power forward?


He is more of a shooting guard/small forward.

Fits the 3 better but based on his '20-'21 season he's an offensive threat who can also board so he and Todorovic could give us time at the 4 if we play small with a 7 footer to protect the rim. Frank the Tank Agunanne is probably the only true 4 we have right now

“I’m going to move on,” Foster said. “I’m distancing myself. I’m trying to get someplace warm ... have the family come and visit me someplace warm.”

There is a YouTube video of a press conference when he was cleared of the charges. He and his family were very frank about his issues at Iowa State and they seemed to be very self aware people who are ready to move on. He is articulate and has a good personality.. I think Xavier is a good add.

I’m assuming Xavier Foster has 4 years of eligibility left due to the following factors. Anyone know for certain? I really like when we have high-talent transfers that have several years of eligibility so we can really build a program with them.
- 2020 HS graduate
- Played at ISU in 2020-2021 season
- Players given extra year for the COVID-riddled 20-21 year
- Didn’t play 2021-2022

In this NIL era, what makes you think that because I was an SMU fan this morning that I still am this afternoon? :mrgreen:

Can you transfer more than once using the portal?

Yes but I think a player only gets one transfer without having to sit a year

True on the one time transfer, but the NCAA keeps waiving the second time for people.
