How many of the seven members (five remaining, four officially) is he able to retain?

Does Thorson stay as an assistant?

In the (probably likely) event that he's only able to keep two or three of the original seven, is he able to get some JUCOs and grad transfers and mostly punt on this class (i.e. filling a bunch of scholarships in the spring)?

I don't know if he'll be given the choice but you'd think that Thorson would want to stay. He just moved his entire family to Iowa. I'd love to keep him on staff.

It was mentioned before but I wouldn’t mind looking at that Ellingson kid from Iowa.

DeVries was handling the recruitment of potential Osky super recruit Xavier Foster... 🤔🤔🤔🤔

Now THAT would be something 😂

We have no idea how many of the 7 recruits will stick with Drake.

We have no idea if any of the current players will leave.

Could be a very interesting/busy summer for DeVries and his staff.

I hope at this moment he is contacting current and recruited players.  We will find out very quickly how good of recruiter he is.

Definitely seems like he has earned the respect in Midwest AAU circles over his tenure at Creighton

Eight guys on the Creighton roster played high school ball east of the Mississippi (i.e., WI, FL, NC, DEL, NH). One is an international kid (one of the 8 from east of the MS, was from abroad, but played in FL).  So, if DD was involved in their recruiting, it looks to be a broad spectrum of possibilities.

Sorry, I meant NJ, not DEL. Also, a player from MA.

hopefully Devries has already contacted all of the commits and former commits. I guess we will find out what kind of a recruiter he is right away. These are all players that chose Drake with Pee Wee. I have never talked to Devries, but he has to be as impressive as PeeWee.

Just for the fun of it, here is a list of immediately eligible transfers who have been previously recruited by Drake or Creighton (all per VC):
Dontel Highsmith (6-2 SG, Cleveland St)
Solomon Hainna (6-6 PF, Evansville*)
Lewis Stallworth (6-1 PG, Texas - Rio Grande Valley)
Wyatt Walker (6-9 C, Samford)
Larry Austin Jr.  (6-2 PG, Vanderbilt)
Brady Ellingson (6-4 SG, Iowa)
Jake Wright (6-4 SG, Miami-Ohio)

* Not sure if the conference transfer rules are different for grad transfers.

Can someone please tell me why our current commits would want to follow Medved? Clearly he only has his own best interests in mind. The first chance he gets to bolt from CSU, he will. Hopefully the current commits think about this and realize he will leave them as soon as his team at CSU has any success.

Bottom line is Drake as a University still has so much to offer these kids. The fact that you have a coach in place now that offers more stability for their college career should be viewed as a positive.

I actually just noticed that CSU only had one senior last year and their one 2018 recruit appears to be on board so there probably isn’t any open spots for our recruits to go to Niko.

I’m sure he would try and push people out of the program to make room for his own players.

I’m shaking my head over McB’s post, but think BTL’s post is spot on.

Good school, good Coach and plenty of opprtunity.
