We need players.As of now we only have 10 players.Two more would
be great,that way when DC graduates that would still open up two slots
for the following year.And whos to say after a year in Walters system
someone in the So. class might not come back.

Personally, I say we take 1 more this year...Silva ideally. Then we leave the other two open. Reason being...Hemmingway and the other guys McCarty just offered are graduating next year and all are better than the people who are left now. We'll have three open spots then - possibly 4 if someone leaves, which happens everywhere and most likely will happen here too.

It would be better to pocket them now and have more spaces for the next class. It will also balance out the recruiting classes, which we all know the importance of after what's happened in the past here.
Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.

Aces have got to get another big and I still very much believe Silva is seriously considering the Aces...I will be very disappointed if we lose him. He is a legit d-1 center. I am believing Coach McCarty will save one of his scholarships unless he is able to land an impact guy. Aces still need an experienced point guard....don't want to turn that job over to a freshman.

I agree. I think we really need an experienced point guard, as much as we need a Silva type player. Possibly a JUCO. KJ is really the only player coming back that played a lot of point last year, but doesn't possess all the skills that I think could really make this team go. Now this goes with saying we really don't know what these three freshmen can bring to the table. While I generally would also say we shouldn't rely on a freshman as our primary point guard, maybe Walter, and his staff know something that we don't.

What ever transpires, you younger guys are going to see the most athletic Aces team since probably the Sloan teams. It's about damn time!

Don’t want to temper things too much here, but I have a question. Do we have confirmation that Marty Hill has applied for, and been GRANTED a medical redshirt for last year?

Good question, and I believe of our 4 recruits only 1 has signed a LOI

I am extremely excited to see DeAndre play for us. Something about him just makes me think he can make an immediate impact for us. I feel like he flew under the radar and is going to be an absolute steal for us. I feel like all of these guys have really flown under the radar. But.. That could also be a bad thing. Regardless, this kind of talent given the circumstances, I'm ecstatic. Welcome to all four of these guys. Hoping to welcome some more here soon. *hint hint, Roman*

Per JoJo Gentry: "Walter McCarty says the UE MBB roster is expected to be announced next week."

I'm assuming this means at least one new player.
