Per Verbal Commits
Too bad. Thought he would work out well. Had other offers from some power 5 schools and rumors were floating around that Villanova was flirting with him.
Hmmmmm… bronco415 looks like a new poster (or yet another screen name for the man with many). More than suspicious with the timing.
In any event, best of luck to Turner. I felt like he was the best of last years freshman class. It wouldn’t surprise me if he does rather well wherever his next stop is.
This doesn’t surprise me given lack of PT and maybe felt recruited over w/ Wertz and Eaddy. He was one of the two I thought were candidates to depart.
I had higher hopes for him but never seemed to gain Sendek’s confidence, PT dropped as season progressed. When he did play displayed decent 3pt shooting but not much else. Looked like a decent athlete but never applied it in a beneficial way.
Best of luck to Matt wherever he lands.
Turner seems like a great kid. Sorry it did not work out.
Would love to see us get some grad transfers or JUCOs that can play right away to take advantage of KJ and Hauser’s senior year. We will have excellent depth next year at PG/SG with Eaddy being eligible. All three of those guys can shoot and handle the ball. The big question will be whether Wertz or Shaq are up to the challenge of handling the more physical and longer perimeter/wing players. Shaq is raw but he will be a good test case of Sendek developing players since he has the appropriate size and length to be a difference maker on defense eventually. Vrankic will be a year stronger. If Sendek could just land a guy to protect the rim then I would actually be quite optimistic going into next year…..but that is a big IF.
We should all be ready for a new vibe, especially after last year. Hodge was the recruiter for Julian and Turner so maybe that is why he is now gone, along with them. Three solid guards and a starter at the 4 spot back, along with a reserve big and an up and coming athlete, combined with 6 new faces. Thankfully House will not be a starter. The three frosh to be will have to grow up fast, and then we will add three others. It is a guessing game but have heard that coaches have been all over the country/world. We will hopefully get a few studs and get this thing going in the right direction.
I like the positive sound of that. I hope you are right. So the three freshman-Wertz, Justice and Ducasse, perhaps along with Richards, will see a lot of playing time it sounds like. We still have Feagin and Vrankic who are good. Walters has potential and hopefully Eaddy is as good as advertised. Looks like we will have three scholarships to give for next year. The D1 transfer list and grad transfer list continues to grow, so maybe there is some hope there. A new vibe would be great-here’s hoping it happens!
