Redshirts still occupy one of the 13 (maximum) scholarships.
I think there would be a spot for Moreno if he wants one.

I agree. I believe someone will be asked to give up their scholarship and be offered an academic scholly if Moreno decides on UE.

I think we still have a shot at Moreno, and he is simply TOO GOOD for us to pass up if he wants to be an Ace. I hope, and believe that WMc will find a way to bring him on board.

Who knows...maybe a member of last season’s roster has decided not to come back. With the new additions, there are a couple guys who I just don’t see minutes for. I’ll just leave it at that.

According to Pat Hickey barring any unexpected late season players leaving the Aces are done with adding to the roster. Also, I don’t see McCarty pulling someone’s scholarship. I believe Walter has too much integrity to do that to a young kid.

I’m not saying Walter should or would remove a scholarship from a current player. I’m saying that there comes a time in a young man’s life when they must look themselves in the mirror, assess their goals, and make a decision. Am I happy being on a winning team where I’m not the best player, and play a role off the bench or do I want to start somewhere?

I can only hope you are right. I thought we were going to land moreno. I still like Dixon a lot. But I had my heart set on Michael.

Maybe Moreno informed Walt that UE isn't his choice.Thats why we
got Dixon.Or Dixon told Walt he wanted to sign and Walt could not take
a chance on getting turned down by Moreno.

Those are, for sure, certain scenarios that could have played out. The most likely thing in my opinion is Moreno was not going to choose Evansville and informed the Aces' staff of his decision. I think he is headed to Wofford. It is a disappointment to me because Evansville came so close to landing him. There is a remote chance, I suspect, that there may be a roster change which would still allow for him to come but that seems like a long shot. Obviously, I am quite pleased with the addition of Dixon who could end up as a better fit for what the Aces need. With his skill set Demontay should flourish under Coach McCarty's system.
