  3. Ya I see my stupidity in the joke now. Still think the bulk of what I said stands. Irregardless, we have to find a guy who's willing to listen to us, and come play for us. There are some great JUCO transfers out there, but some of them wouldn't give us the time of the day, and so we would be wasting time on them when we could be spending time on young guys willing to commit to the program for 4 years. Thats all that I was really trying to get at, misread it as you saying you wanted us to go after Zion in a sarcastic tone. Village idiot for the day.
  4. Next interview on the way with Cody Ellis. To try and simplify this for ourselves, we have set up a google doc for submissions. Name is optional, its only if you would like a shout out for your question. Thank you guys for following along. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc_2HV767ukFs_4cQpMw_y_KlztbFi82WPxqOdXkNzhKxSHIA/viewform
  5. Interesting thing with this conversation about recruiting is the fact that I've always heard people speak on Travis Ford as a great recruiter, so why couldn't he recruit some big transfer names. And while I think we could all agree he has gotten some good transfers, I bet we would love to see another upperclassmen come in to solidify our roster along with adding depth so we can stop talking about SLU being short handed every year. Are we expecting too much out of Travis Ford? Is he underperforming? Have to again remember Bess, Foreman, and Isabell all were transfers who turned out to be great, or at least Bess and Isabell of late have been great. Where would you guys rate Travis Ford's recruiting thus far in his tenure with SLU?
  6. I would say it's pretty unreasonable to use Zion Williamson as your example to begin this. Had you said someone like Isabell which came up later, I would consider that a reasonably high expectation. Saying we should want to get Zion is just ludicrous, not because we wouldn't love to have him, but because we'd rather build a team of 4 year guys that develop into great players because they would actually take our call. The issue with looking for these transfers and the high level players that you are talking about is the possibility that you overlook or undervalue guys who can develop into good/great players.
  7. Here's some more on Perkins if you are interested: https://www.ksdk.com/video/sports/swics-javonte-perkins-getting-big-time-attention/63-ed2eebf9-58fb-4e4b-af17-166238ea1038
  8. We have a G/SF transfer in Javonte Perkins who is a JUCO guy from SWIC to remember too.

  10. We have talked to people before we sat down with Jimmy Bell Jr. and we have done our homework to make sure that we will not be in anyway breaking rules or violations in interviewing him. We covered everything as best we could, and are very confident we haven't crossed any lines or broken rules. Thanks.
  11. Will be sitting down with Terrence Hargrove. If you have any questions for him, let us know.
  12. As promised, our next interview is tentatively set. Terrence Hargrove, SLU commit, has agreed to sit down for an interview with us. Any questions you guys have, feel free to send them in.
