Obviously not the across-the-board challenging tournament we would all love to watch in November - but at least most of these teams are an improvement over the group of 300+ teams we played last season. It will be fun to see the love that Patrick should get from his native island.
You know what's great about Greg? If his time doesn't work out he won't be around long enough for us to care or suck up a scholarship. Can the same be said about Bey if he turns out to be underwhelming? In that scenario all people could hope best for would be a transfer.
I would hope there is something great about Greg other than his short tenure.
In a way, he's a replacement for Sodom. And if Ewing is hearing that Govan is gone, then I think Ewing takes him without hesitation.
Our recruitment of Cockburn, Stewart, and other 2019 elite bigs is not impacted by bringing in Osunniyi from 2018.
Btw, as positive as Hoya recruiting has been trending lately, I would think Georgetown is the favorite among the 3 schools listed.
Not to mention that if Kofi and Stewart both go elsewhere - and they both have impressive lists of suitors - and we end up scrambling for a big man, we could be sorry we did not get Osun, especially if he develops into a big contributor.
The scholarship numbers work themselves out. I feel that Patrick knows exactly what he is doing.
Forget the lost recruits. There is no way a team with that much talent last year should have played so poorly. You don't stink up the joint for 10+ games then beat Nova and Duke back to back and then stink up the joint again. There was a definite lack of commitment on the part of the players that I believe was related to their coach. Mullin never seems to get his players to perform when he wants them to. Instead they seem to pick their spots and their games. Compare how much more PE got out of his team last year than what Mullin got out of his.
St. john’s won their next two games(Marquette & DePaul) after beating Duke & Nova..
They also beat Butler & Gtown after those wins as well, just stating for the record..
If their team had so much talent why were only 6 kids getting playing time at the end of the season?
Obviously the jury is still out on Mullins but folks make it seem as if he’s going into his 6th or 7th year..
I find it kinda interesting to read DFW and others going in on the amount of transfers at St. John’s considering this is the graduation year of Gtowns much heralded 2014 class..
The coach who recruited that 2014 class, and who failed to find success with it, lost his job. So I guess what you are really saying is that Mullins should lose his if he does not get to the NCAA's next season.😉
