Last year it was 41% overall, 34.8% from 3, and 76% from the line. He had better percentages as a junior except from the charity stripe where he was only 55% as a freshman and 66% as a sophomore.

I'd be fine if DSM was the last JUCO hoopster we ever signed.
Agreed. I think we're gonna have a fun year, and that extra scholarship available could be a big deal in recruiting. We don't have to renew Lazenby's scholarship at the end of the year, but it's shady to recruit like that's an open spot from day one.

kruger doesnt recruit like that. he will be here 2 years more than likely, although DSM leaving was as close as Kruger has gotten to that arrangement and it was just this year. but there was more baggage to that situation

I'm just curious. So does that mean every player that has transferred under Lon left because they had baggage? I know that's likely for some, but I can't help but imagine we had one or two transfers they would have liked to stay.
I believe this is all the transfers we've had under Lon, but I could be missing one or two:
Calvin Newell
Jelon Hornbeak
Frank Booker
Darrion Strong-Moore
Dante Buford

DSM Is the only one that Ive heard of this group that didnt have baggage. Others didnt have a lot of choice in the transfer option.

I wasn't saying he recruits like that. That's why I was saying we should leave the spot open. We just grabbed a warm body because we had the spot, and it might cost us a valuable player down the road.

Grandstaff, Booker, and Hornbeak weren't given a choice. They wished Hornbeak would have had a choice although he probably was going to leave anyway. I don't think the guys this year had a choice either but I don't know why.

Mikyle from Illinois st I've heard is trending towards Wisconsin. Hired his coach or something. Pretty quiet though

Question...it's correct that we're down to just 1 available scholarship, right? Jeff Goodman from ESPN tweeted this morning that OU is among 4 finalists for the 2 transfers from UMass, DeJohn Jarreau and Brison Gresham. Creighton, UConn, and Seton Hall are the others. How is this possible? Is someone else leaving? Are we maybe not really in the running for these guys?

They're good and I'd love to have them but I don't see spots for both and it sure seems like they're a package deal.

I'm wondering the same thing. We must be recruiting them so will one be a grayshirt? That makes no sense but it's the only scenario right now unless someone is leaving.

This whole thing seems odd. I doubt we are a serious player for these two. Can anyone provide some insight? Leopard? Coach? Vbdad?

Thinking more about this...maybe it's the sort of situation where they would like to come to OU if we had 2 spots and maybe will keep us in it until either another one opens up or they have to go with someone else.

I would love to see Mikyle in an OU uniform! He would give us the inside banger we were missing last year that could be the difference for a deep run in March.

What are you basing the "inside banger" part on?

He is 6'7, and was third on his team in rebounds last year.

He would be a solid piece off the bench, but I wouldn't expect much out of him.

Edit: Doolittle and Lattin both averaged more rebounds per game than him, in less minutes, as a comparison.
