N.L.I Signing Period

Postby Ace78 » Wed Apr 17, 2019 12:46 am

Today is the first day of the National Letter of Intent Spring signing period . I wonder if UE will have a recruit to announce today? I know we only have 2 more openings. Any projections or inside info to share ? :-D

I'm hopeful that Michael Moreno's recent UE visit went well and that he decides to join the Aces!

High school kids generally announce at school during school hours.

It would seem Walter is going after higher profile kids. These type of players have a lot of options. I am guessing we are not going to see any immediate signings. My hope is the Aces will land one of those type of kids. Further, I do hope that UE fans should understand, schools not named Kentucky, North Carolina, and Duke, are not going to get all the players they actively recruit. What you hope for is that one will say yes, and then get other kids who fit your system.

Jemarl Baker leaving UK after 1 year. 4 star recruit out of High School from California. Can't say I know much about the kid. Obviously didn't see much time on the court in his 1 yr.

Jermal missed significant time due to some knee issues...not sure how severe. If healthy it would seem he would make quite an impact.

He would be a huge get with three years of eligibility; however, it sounds like he wants to move closer to home (California).

UE has hosted at least these three 2019s on official visits the last three weeks: 6-7 PG Thomasi Gilgeous-Alexander, 6-6 F Michael Moreno and 6-9 F Demontay Dixon.

Tomorrow, I'll explore a few names on the transfer market. Related, I was told this afternoon that there will not be any departures off the current team. So, officially, two roster spots open.
