I’m with you, CT!

We’ll have several new faces and not as much experience next season, but the cupboard will not be bare by any means. Our coaches did a nice job of turning two grad transfers, a freshman and our returning players into a pretty darned good team this season. If they can do that again next year, we’ll be fine. On paper, the talent might actually be better.

Uh oh, now i’ve done it! How can a team that will lose the likes of James, McNeace, Reynolds, Calixte and Odomes possibly be better?

Doolittle, Freeman, Kauth, Manek, Bieniemy and Polla will be back. Austin Reaves, a WSU transfer who can shoot the lights out from the perimeter will be eligible. They will be joined by a top twenty recruiting class with an assortment of exciting pieces, including a top forty point guard who will start from day one.

Relax, folks! CoachTalk is right. Next year’s team will be fun!

the frontcourt will be cool. it's the backcourt where we might have an issue or two with depth. a backcourt grad xfer eligible next year would be a huge boon. still think it will be a good team though.

The backcourt is gouging to be very strong. It'll be young, but very good. They'll have Harmon, Reaves, Biueniemy, & Williams to basically play positions, and that's when they don't go with bigs. We could use more guy for depth maybe but next year's backcourt will be very good,

yeah. he is the goods. they are suggesting a grad xfer backup for him.

and, quite honestly, given what we've seen with Aaron and Miles and the fact it's only a 1 year obligation, I'd take a grad xfer point guard or combo guard any chance we could. The results of that maturity are so enormous in helping team play on the floor that I don't see many negatives in bringing them aboard. Thats just like free bonus armor in an MMORPG.

Looks Like Merritt has been active on twitter and still has his picture "Committed" to OU and looks like his Coach retweeted his tweet "Next up OU". Also some other active OU mentions within the last few days.

I could see us taking a transfer that has to sit a year. Help even the classes some.

Yep. Lon has options, although there are not many spaces open right now for the 2020 recruiting class.

Just saw the roster from this past year....

I know we all know who's leaving but losing 10 out of 16 guys ( a couple of walk-on's that were Sr along with 2 transfers and the 6 reg players)

It'll be interesting to see how the team jells...and if we get a couple of walk-ons that can help in practice.

Who were the WSU folks? Insiders or average fans?

I'm not saying they're wrong -- I don't have a clue -- but fans tend to make such excuses when quality players transfer, so I'd take what they said with a huge grain of salt unless they have inside knowledge.

And I'd also be curious about the reason he "had to leave." If it was anything very serious, I'm not sure I can see Coach Kruger bringing him to Norman.
