You should catch a Patriot League game, pal. Once you see American play Boston U., you'll never watch another MAAC game.

St. Peter’s freshman guard Aaron Estrada is transferring from Peacock Land, which is a shame for SPU and college basketball. However, our staff recruited him last spring. Having watched him quite a bit this season, I would be happy to take him at SBU in conjunction with a grad transfer PG.
Curious to know how much attention, if any, you pay to the MAC? Anthony Roberts from Kent State is in the portal and he visited 2 years ago, no idea whose decision it was but he didn’t pick us last time around.

I don’t watch as much MAC (those bloated monolith second-fourth level directional state schools depress me), but have seen Roberts a couple of times against UB. He’d definitely be a nice addition—especially as a sit out kid who’d then join the Vasquez/Winston/Carpenter class.

Bona not on the early list that reached out, if Twitter is in any way accurate.

We survived the initial cutdown list for Prince Oduro
If you can’t contribute more than a point and a rebound per game at Mississippi State, which hasn’t been a national power, then my interest level is pretty low. SBU and the top half of the A10 play a pretty consistently high level of hoops, and it’s a huge misconception that such programs are way down in quality from the mid-to-lower P5s on a nightly basis.

Oduro should have stayed at Siena. As I always repeat... succeeding early on in one’s career shouldn’t be interpreted as a need to move “up”. It should be interpreted as the player/family making a wise decision from the get-go.

Having said that, I trust Schmidt and Curran. If they want Roberts and/or Oduro, then fine; however, we surely could use some instant contributions behind Lofton and Osunniyi—be they grad transfers, three-year JUCOs, or freshmen.

Could not agree more, stats at Siena were ok but he averaged like 5 mins a game at Hail State

I try to avoid all the premature ejaculation about recruiting, but I suppose it's not the worst thing to happen during a pandemic. We now have 3 open rides, so I'm wondering who we're salivating over. I can't really even figure out where AdAway (sorry I can't make that second upper case A go lower case) fits in the rotation, so I've got no clue what the key positions are we want filled. Our projected junior class looks really strong, so I guess we want to get a few more freshmen. The coach also seems to be comfortable with at least one incoming transfer sitting out the year. So what positions are we targeting for those other two and who are the most likely candidates? Just wondering...

We need another true point guard and a defensively capable center; from there, just pursue the best player(s) available.

Keep your eyes open for:

Jeremiah Williams
Anthony Roberts
Takorian “TK” Smith
AJ Staton
Abou Ousman
Jalen Haynes

As always, expect a kid or two to come out of the ether and sign.
