    2019 Men's Basketball Recruiting Thread

    would love to have Danjel back but I guess I'm just a pessimist and am not expecting it. A starting 5 of : Harper Doughty Okoro Okeke Mac Still makes me so amped for 2019. That'd be a ridiculous starting 5.

    Heron Transferring to St. John's

    https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/college-basketball-rankings-the-top-100-and-one-best-players-for-the-2018-19-season/ Heron ranked ahead of all of our AU players in this CBS top 101 players article. Which I find interesting considering his terrible %s last year. Probably was the 4th best player on the team last season behind Harper, Bryce and Mac. But whatever. More motivation for our guys.

    VCU Guard Samir Doughty transferring to Auburn

    I'm gonna bump this bad boy just because this young man is who I'm most excited about seeing this season. So many reports that this child is just a baller and a scorer and has drastically improved his 3 pt shot. Bruce also singled him out a bit when discussing the pro day. Gonna make a prediction that this guy is our Donte Divencenzo this year. Comes off the bench and is the primary ball handler/scorer and will have games where he's just too good to take off the court. Probably gonna wind up the #2 primary ball handler behind jared too. Can't see McCormick getting too many minutes just becuase Samir's gonna be too good.

    2019 - Top 5 Team?

    way too early to tell. Depends if Jared and Chuma come back. I assume both do, but you never know. If both those dudes come back along with Mac then this should be a top 10 squad. If Danjel comes back, then whoa momma. What a squad. If all those guys come back and they add a real quality grad tranny post/PF guy. Then we're talking final 4.

    I’d bank on Danjel being gone as this is, as crazy as it sounds, his 4th year at AU. Probably will be graduated and ready to move on unless he gets injured. Sounds like no more HS signees for this class but I’d wager a lot that they bring in a grad transfer forward. Someone that can play the 4 and 5 preferably.

    Mark Sears

    I imagine the level of competition that Cooper and Mark Sears have played against is different. Not doubting that Sears has tried to play with the best, but Cooper's AAU and HS team both travel all over the country and play the best of the best. And Cooper still shines despite being only a sophomore. Maybe that's the only thing holding Sears back. I don't know. But Cooper has undoubtedly proved that he can ball against elite players.
  7. what a handsome young man. Gonna be a total stud for AU
  8. true that. I'm just excited. Guess I was a pessimist. I'm just happy that this kid's coming to AU. Total stud imo. He'll climb up hte rankings into into the top 60 ish.
  9. welcome young man. Wow. What a class Bruce is putting together and 2020 should/could be even better

    Two Words...Final Four

    The no purifoy situation is gonna hurt more from a depth stand point than lack of scoring stand point. I'm excited to see Samir and word is that Dunbar is much improved. Kind of wouldn't surpise me if Danjel isn't even a guaranteed starter when he is eligible.
  11. word on the street is that young stud mister Tyrell will be committing in t minus 15 minutes to the good guys. Praise Bruce. LEgggggggggggggggoooooooooooooo. So in love with the direction of the bball program. Think this youngster has a chance to be a star.

    Heron Transferring to St. John's

    I think everyone on the team had a big problem with Dunnans that year. And I imagine Stapha did the most bc they played the same position

    Heron Transferring to St. John's

    He almost transferred to UConn after his freshman year. But he stuck around bc he didn’t want to sit out a year bc he thought he’d be going pro. Rumor is that he and Jared DO NOT get along and he didn’t like sharing the spotlight with both Harper and Bryce

    Heron Transferring to St. John's

    My understanding is that it was an existing condition before he ever came to AU and that it isn’t any worse than it was. He just wanted to transfer and they used it as a way to get him immediately eligible
