3 scholarships to give.  Replacing Brady Ernst, Tremell Murphy and Anthony Murphy.

I think there's an obvious need for a big man to replace Ernst.....probably also need a couple for 6'5" to 6'7" athletic wings to replace the Murphy's, although it's possible that Ferguson and Samake can fill that role.

But, if someone like Bowen Born wants to come to Drake, you definitely take him, even if that position is not your greatest need.

What do you all think?

So far you got to like the 2018 recruiting and 2019 looks great on paper, I say size and the best available player.

Bowen Born, a big, and a wing is definitely the goal for me.

Well, I guess today is the last day of the July evaluation period, and the last chance for coaches to get out and see players.  I'm guessing we won't see many more guys being offered by the Bulldogs this summer.

Overall, I really like the guys they've offered.  Several of them have multiple "Power 5" offers, so probably aren't realistic for the Bulldogs.

Of the guys that I think DU actually has a chance to get, I'd love to see Born, Rivera and Oden or Kwiecinski.

I'm guessing there will be a lot of visits in the near future.  

Staff is off to a good start with Kwiecinski's commitment.  I'm hoping for more in the next 2-3 weeks.

I saw that, too.  

Anybody else feel like he's just pulling random names from VerbalCommits?

I thought it was odd as well. The Rivera and Case offers are reeeeally old. Made in spring of 2018.

I thought it was odd he gave a certain opinion on the kid from Norwalk. Maybe the kid will have a splinterless-shred'n the gnar at UNI just as he probably would have at Drake. Good kid and all, and would be a star in Lamoni, IA.

Speaking of Born.....every time Bain talked about him during the recruiting process; he always mentioned that one other school that Born would definitely visit was Drake.  But, the commitment article made it sound like he never visited.  I wonder what changed.....did Born suddenly lose any interest in Drake for some reason....or, is it possible that Drake had a change of heart?  Maybe decided they didn't really need another point guard after all.

Look at it this way, we have to replace the twins with athletic wings.  Born doesn't fit that description.  With so many newcomers, I would think they would want some experience, which would point to a JUCO.  Then they need a back up for Liam.  Maybe Samaki will be that, but he's really raw.  I've heard that they think Yesufu is going to be a real stud.  When you look at Born's film and you look at Joe's film, you'd likely pick Joe in a pick-up game.  Both are good.  Joe's body is ready for prime time.  Born's not so much.  I think DUB has a point.

Moving forward.....

That's what I'm wondering too. Did we really need another point guard? We are pretty deep in that spot. Maybe they they have some other guys in their sites that they figured could fill positions that we're not as deep in.

It does seem like the timeline on Born’s commitment sped up a little. On the visit tho, since he was at games countless times he probably didn’t deem it necessary, assuming it wasn’t drake that cut things off.

How can Samaki at maybe 6'6" be a backup 5?

Thanks, McB....you beat me to it. The length of his arms allow him to play several inches taller than his actual height. At 6’7”, he’s got the reach of a typical 6’10” player. And, he can jump out of the gym.

Maybe 6'6"? He's listed at 6'7" but are you saying it's closer to 6'5"or something?
