Walter McCarty announces first signing class at UE

https://gopurpleaces.com/news/2018/6/21/mens-basketball-walter-mccarty-announces-first-signing-class-at-ue.aspx

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – University of Evansville head men's basketball coach Walter McCarty has announced his inaugural signing class for the Purple Aces as they prepare for the 2018-19 season.

Will Becker – 6-9 – Power Forward – Aurora, Colorado
Shea Feehan – 6-0 – Guard – Peoria, Ill.
Shamar Givance – 5-10 – Point Guard – Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Jawaun Newton – 6-3 – Guard – El Paso, Texas
DeAndre Williams – 6-9 – Forward – Houston, Texas


I notice Hurley is not mentioned in this list. Should we read anything into this?

I would say that either (a) Hurley is not coming to UE or (b) he has not qualified for admission yet. Maybe he’s attending summer classes here or elsewhere and Coach cannot comment on his status yet.

The potential loss of Hurley would be a big blow. He would have been a starter as and made a big impact.

I highly doubt “he would have been a starter.” He wasn’t highly recruited at all. Frederking, Riley, and Hill will get most of the minutes at the 2. Feehan and Newton will play on the wings as well. (Out of all the newcomers, I see Williams and Becker having the the most impact-but off topic). Also, if Holston signs, a loss of Hurley will not be that significant as Holston will be a huge upgrade if he can stay healthy.

Agree,that's probably why we were looking at Troy and signed Feehan

I was envisioning Hurley as the starting PG. Losing him would be a major blow.

No question. Very fast and athletic and knows how to get to the rim. I too envisioned him as a point guard but could play multiple positions.
Let's hope he gets his grades back in order.

Seeing Coach say DeAndre could be one of the best ever to play here is such an exciting statement. And coming from a guy who's seen elite talent.

Hurley definitely would not be my pick for the starting pg, he had more turnovers than assist last year, we can't afford that assist/turnover ratio at the point.

He would not be starting unless we had an awful lot of injuries.
