I think that is John Hall in the picture. I think the tweet is simply stating that ALL students, which includes those who don't play basketball, are back on campus and the guys in the picture helped those students move into the dorms. Of course, I totally acknowledge I could be wrong!

I took a pic of John Hall from GOOGLE and did a side by side comparison. They do resemble each other, but they eyes and brows are quite a bit different. Along with the height difference and "new classmates" reference, I'm 99% sure it's Riley.

There are currently no photos on GoPurpleAces.com. roster listing, atleast they aren't loading on my phone or desktop or I would used one there for comparison. Must be preparing for new ones.

That's definitely Kelvin. Kinda sad we have to sit here and speculate, oh well. Watched a lot of vid on him and he's a long, fearless slasher with really solid court vision. Attacking the rim should open opportunities for our shooters. Welcome, KJ

Don't believe it's Hall, either.
Blake is further away from camera and appears to be taller, than ACE, on right. (maybe Blake grew to 6'8"?)
Besides, the few recent photos of Hall, he looks like he put on more than a few lbs of muscle.

Does anybody else find it really depressing we have to guess who is on our team. This has been a staple for a long time. Let us know build excitement don't hide it in a closet like our schedule only to be announced 2 weeks before the season.

I understand completely what you are saying, but in the case of Kelvin Riley it pertains to NCAA rules.

Could they be bringing him on as a walk on? No insight, just guessing...
