Nil. If we miss on any of the big time kids who is a top 5 player that ace Bailey is then it means we got out bid. Bruce is extremely frustrated with how our nil for basketball is lacking and anytime he rarely he has spoken publicly on it you can tell he is annoyed. It’s why we didn’t get jarace Walker or Julian Phillips last class when we were in a really good position with both. It’s concerning when non traditional schools like Rutgers and Houston are outbidding us.

Yeah the Phillips one really sucked. Because the effort that went into that, was stellar effort. You didn’t need to be plugged in to know that. I kept reading budget budget budget in his thread on here, and I just don’t think there should be a budget (within reason) if you’re that close to contending. 
This was supposed to be a relatively flat year overall where Arkansas was the super power, but UK and UTk lost some guys and Alabama was supposed to return to the mean. If we had that Phillips type wing guy (on paper), we would’ve been top 3 easy on paper. 
 

I don’t think we can afford to be relying on a Wendell or a KD going forward. Those need to be the type of recruits (HS or transfer) that round out a roster, not be your anchors. UK has 5 top 30 guys incoming, we got one guy period (who is in that general talent range but still)

2024 PG Tahaad Pettiford has set his announcement date for February 1st.

I haven’t seen any smoke to indicate he’s Auburn-bound. There’s a paywalled article about him today though, so maybe there is new intel. 
 

I really want Labaron Philon from Mobile, but it’s been a long time since we’ve landed a #1 AL recruit. (Danjel Purifoy in the class of 2015.)

Arkansas is showing this year it’s still extremely risky to go to freshman heavy for your roster. No matter how many 5 stars you have and how highly rated you have. Unfortunately the blue print is bama this year. A mix of blue chip freshman and good transfers/returning vets.

Sure, not every freshman will be Jabari, Okoro, or Cooper as we're seeing with Traore and saw with Okeke, some need time. But we could really use another high level wing in the 2024 class and adding Bailey changes the trajectory of the class.

So does how does basketball transfer portal work?  Does it have an opening and closing date to enter the portal?  Anybody know if or when that is?
