Not too significant, IMO… Wardlow showed flashes, but was often injured and always seemed pretty thin.

Can’t tell- with Eaddy in, are we full now, or does this open an additional spot?

I think this means we have an extra scholarship.

FWIW, Cole Harrison from Dartmouth, a 6’10” center, has graduated and has indicated that he is seeking a graduate transfer, but it appears that he has not yet declared where he will end up.

also, Dylan Johns (6’11”, 240 lbs) from CSU-Northridge appears to be in a similar situation

I think this leaves an additional spot. Thing is that there just aren’t many guys available at this point and wonder if they sit on the extra scholarship until next year to get a freshman.

Kind of a bummer. He had a nice combination of athleticism and length and was probably the best perimeter we had. Not a great shooter but but injuries definitely stunted his development.
Yes, we now have one open scholly.
It is getting late, but I’d love to see us snag a JC or graduate transfer who can play the 4 spot. With Kratch, Hubbard, Akil all moving on, we’re thin at the 4. We have several who can play the position but are better suited as either 3’s or 5’s:
-I suspect Pugh will start at the 4; he’s spent most his career there but he’s undersized. His improved perimeter shooting allowed him to play some at the 3 last season particularly during his early season success…nice combination of athleticism, size, slashing and some 3 ptrs as a 3 and prefer to see him playing there.
-Jadersten: he’s split his time between the 4 and 5. He has the perimeter shooting skills of a stretch 4. But his athleticism, perimeter defense and ball handling are below par for the 4…thus i prefer to see him mostly at the 5 unless he’s improved in those areas.
-the incoming freshmen (sorry, spacing on his name at the moment) may become a true 4. He looked solid in highlight vids but might need a year or so to add some weight/strength.

Stepping away, it makes sense from Wardlow’s perspective. The most recent recruiting class includes 3 players–Sendek’s — who’d he be competing with for playing time. Too bad he was battling injuries for a good chunk of his time at SCU. Good luck to him and hope the open schollie translates to the hoped for tall, long, athletic wing.
