hondo4/21/2017 12:45:00 PM

Jiggets signed somewhere I believe. Who on this list willl GW get?

ziik the bureaucrat4/21/2017 2:26:35 PM

That's a nice shopping list


dmvpiranha4/21/2017 2:37:07 PM

Elijah Long isn't immediately eligible, but an intriguing name. Averaged 15 points per game last year at Mount St. Mary's as a sophomore.


the dude4/21/2017 2:45:50 PM

My guess is Jack Whitman signs with GW.


baccas924/21/2017 3:16:32 PM

I love Hamdy.  But I don't know how it works coming from VCU. 


bigfan4/21/2017 3:21:29 PM

Wonder why Handy would leave VCU. He got plenty of fouling, 'er playing, time.

the mv4/21/2017 3:26:30 PM

As a graduate transfer, a player is eligible to play right away and that includes transfers within the same conference.  As an example, Spike Albrecht played for Purdue this season after playing for Michigan the season prior.

the dude4/21/2017 3:31:09 PM

BACCAS, good to see you posting, board benefits greatly from your voice here.

Hans Brase would slot into Tyler's role rather nicely.  Prolific 6'8 shooter who has battled injuries but when healthy was one of the Ivy's better players.  We need to get more athletic at the Guard and Wing, but we need to replace Tyler's shooting in our Frontcourt.   Brase would be great for us if healthy, good rebounder too.


pj4/21/2017 7:01:09 PM

Lot of these guys are better than the guys GW lost to transfer. 

bobo4/22/2017 1:58:58 PM

It might be Jack Whitman, dude.  After doing nothing for 2 years at W&M, he did score in the post last year. But he's not the type of athlete that MoJo has been going after in his recent recruits.   

haha4/22/2017 2:53:42 PM

Seeing some good players on this list. Hope we can get one or two! 

the dude4/22/2017 2:59:56 PM

Bobo, that's surely true on both accounts.  I think at the 4/5 we're looking for scoring (see above Hans Blase as well) and at Guard/Wing to get more athletic.  Ideally both, but realistically one or the other, and those are the things this roster most needs, athleticism at the G/Wing, and scoring from the frontcourt.

the dude4/23/2017 1:08:54 AM

How about Maryland's Jaylen Brantley and give him 35 minutes a night at the point Guard.  I'm sure some BCS programs have inquired about him but how many can give him the opportunity to shine all game like we can?



maine colonial4/23/2017 8:39:41 PM

Brantley is signing with UMass, according to Verbal Commits.

maine colonial4/23/2017 8:42:07 PM

There should eventually be 300 more players adding their names to the list going by previous years.

thomas4/23/2017 9:53:57 PM

I think Brantley is from Massachusetts, and it seems as if everyone transferred out of UMass after Kellogg got fired so he should get big minutes there. I thought GW would be a good fit for him if he wanted to stay in the area, he showed some scoring ability during the 2nd half of the year for Maryland after not having a lot of opportunities before that.

About Jack Whitman, from what I've seen in the past, any mid-major player who puts up even decent numbers will end up at a BCS school. I figure the 10PPG/5.4Rebs/1.1Blks is enough to get him looks from BCS schools, it will just depend on whether he wants to be a role player at a BCS school or come to GW and be a key contributor on the team.

Jiggetts transferred to South Florida, they've signed 3 or 4 transfers already after a lot of their players transferred out when Brian Gregory took over.


gw05094/24/2017 10:36:19 AM

Whitman is visiting UNC this week per Rothstein

colonial ny4/24/2017 10:36:36 AM

Jack Whitman visiting North Carolina per Jon Rothstein: We might not be in the running on him (not even sure if we were pursuing).

ziik4/24/2017 10:40:12 AM

Maybe they try him out, then tell him GW is his best bet.

greenpoint ny4/24/2017 10:52:13 AM

UNC? Does he not want to play lol. This stuff confuses do you go from GW to UNC? Please explain.

the mv4/24/2017 11:17:44 AM

Ask Damian Hollis.  He commited to GW and was then later offered by UNC.  He stood by his GW commitment.  Definitely deserved better than those final few years at GW.

Don't give up on Whitman yet.  The Dude believes he will sign with GW. 


bobo4/24/2017 11:29:00 AM

 How about James Daniel from Howard? 27.1 pts a game on .388 shooting.  Yikes.

greenpoint ny4/24/2017 11:33:41 AM

I'm ready to see a transfer commit (damn it) lol

thomas4/24/2017 1:17:55 PM

I believe Herve posted that James Daniel had a final list of teams that included mostly BCS schools, I think Ohio State and Michigan were 2 of them. I already pointed out that mid-major grad transfers who show the slightest amount of ability/talent(double-digit scoring) will end up with BCS interest, James Daniel led the nation in scoring as a JR so he's definitely going to end up at a BCS school. How he performs at his new school will be interesting to see.


the mv4/24/2017 2:18:48 PM

Most people don't know this but James Daniel actually played for GW a generation ago.  We used to call him SirValient or Val for short.


the dude4/24/2017 2:31:26 PM

Thomas, no doubt, agreed.  Ergo there is huge competition for all of these guys.  

thomas4/24/2017 3:01:24 PM

Let me also add that schools like GW can go after BCS guys who didn't play a lot who will see GW as an opportunity to showcase themselves. The guys on the list from Virginia, CAL, Washington, Michigan and Nebraska will probably transfer down a level. I wanted to point that out for those of you who may get discouraged when you see Jack Whitman, Stephan Jiggets and Khris Lane signing with BCS schools instead of GW. Two years ago, Sam Cassell Jr. couldn't get off the bench at UConn, last year he was one of the best players at Iona. I'm sure you'll see the same for several of these BCS players who barely played last year, I see these transfers as a win-win for all levels.


ziiks third cousin twice removed4/24/2017 3:08:42 PM

Didn't Sam stop for a cup of coffee at UMd, Thomas?

thomas4/24/2017 3:20:10 PM

Ziik,  yeah Sam Jr was only at Maryland in spirit as he was deemed ineligible at some point after the high school all-star games and before summer classes began. He didn't even get to enjoy that cup of coffee in College Park!!

ziik4/24/2017 4:12:53 PM

Also, I think, he spent some time in the slammer at a JUCCO.

(This, after putting all his eggs in the bball basket)

bigfan4/24/2017 6:04:16 PM

Jack Whitman would greatly devalue his William and Mary degree by signing onto North Carolina's  athletic dept. sham academic outlook. Would piss away years of hard work in a real academic environment.

And be buried on the bench.

In reality, GW is his only truly great option for playing time, advanced degree, proximity to William and Mary. And Jack Whitman should be smart enough to see that, so if he think it through like his well capable of, he will come to the right choice.

boom4/24/2017 9:09:29 PM

So today's signing of Nolan leaves three open scholarships for transfers?

old fan4/25/2017 12:48:12 AM

Casey Benson would be just terrific for GW 


boom4/25/2017 1:13:34 PM

Sold Sina, who turned out not so great, on Getting the rock for 32 minutes. We can do same on one of these pure points. Hopefully one who is much more athletic and better than Jaren but same sales pitch. For a Grad transfer looking to showcase pro skills it's a good sale. 


the dude4/25/2017 6:52:43 PM

Its a tall order going after these guys, for as Thomas has displayed the BCS gobbles them up, but we really do need immediately eligible guys this off-season.  

bo knows4/25/2017 7:00:36 PM

Not sure why we keep getting the question of how many scholarships. We have 13 total at any time. Currently, we have 6 returning scholarship players and 3 incoming freshmen = 9. 13-9 = 4 remaining scholarships for 2017-18.
