Default 2019-20 Roster

Looking towards the future, I thought I would jot down the projected 2019-20 roster as we know it today. We know that Wichita State transfer Austin Reaves will redshirt in 2018-19. In the following list, I ASSUME that Kur Kuath also redshirts, thus making him a redshirt junior in 2019-20.

Seniors Departing After 2018-19 Season (6): Jamuni McNeace; Christian James; Rashard Odomes; Aaron Calixte; Miles Reynolds; Ty Lazenby

**********************

OU MEN’S BASKETBALL / PROJECTED 2019-20 ROSTER
12 Scholarship Players (Allowed 13)
As of September 30, 2018


Seniors (2 Scholarship Players)
> Kristian Doolittle (6-7, 236, F) ... Edmond, OK (Memorial High School)
> Matt Freeman (6-10, 229, F) … Auckland, New Zealand

Juniors (5)
> Austin Reaves (6-5, 175, G) ... Newark, Arkansas / Wichita State
> Brady Manek (6-9, 210, F) … Harrah, Oklahoma
> Hannes Pöllä (6-11, 271, C) … Lahti, Finland (Helsinki Basketball Academy)
> Alondes Williams (6-5; 220, G) ... Milwaukee, Wisconsin / Triton College
> Kur Kuath (6-9; 173; F) … Salt Lake City CC / Kearns, Utah

Sophomore (2)
> Jamal Bieniemy (6-3; 170; G) … Katy, Texas
> Corbin Merritt (6-9; 250; C) ... Tallahassee, Florida / Daytona State College

Freshmen (3)
> De'Vion Harmon (6-0; 192; G) ... Denton, Texas
> Victor Iwuakor (6-8; 210; C) ... Sulphur Springs, Texas
> Jalen Hill (6-7; 180; F) ... Las Vegas, Nevada


Experience on the Roster: With 7 upper class-men, there will be maturity and experience.

Only one (1) 2019 Recruiting Spot Open: Will OU save it for a D-1 transfer, or use it for another recruit?

Good stuff as always, Traveler!

If our juniors and seniors develop as expected, 2019-20 could be a very good year. Some might say our point guard will be a freshman. But Da’Vion Harmon is mature beyond his years mentally and physically. I’m not the least bit concerned about his ability to lead our offense. Oh, and he can also play defense.

Thanks Ada. I am most interested in watching the development and improvement in our current roster players. I was spoiled by how Buddy and Isaiah demonstrated improvement season after season. I hope to see some significant improvement in several of our guys this coming season, and next.

There should be a ton of room for Harmon and Bieniemy to drive with Reaves and Manek out there to stretch the defense.

Did you mean to say an athletic big with a high motor and a junkyard dog approach to the game?

I love this kid! He’s the kind of big i was hoping we would sign. I was tired of seeing bigs like Victor on every team OU played the last two years.

That’s great to hear. I wasn’t sure on his play other than his recruiting video honestly.

He'd start this year if he was on campus. Will be the starter from Day 1!

Really hoping Doolittle gets back on track. He looked like a future stud after his freshman year. I know the semester off hurt, but he looked a lot worse than I thought he would.

Manek needs to be a little more consistent on the road where it's always a tough place to compete.

Doolittle looked disjointed/awkward on the floor last season. Needs to play more in the flow of things and stop second guessing himself and allow his athletic ability to come to the forefront.

(9/30/2018 Update)

Alondes Williams (6-5; 220) ... Milwaukee, Wisconsin / Triton College

Assuming no one transfers (a big assumption), OU is looking at 7 juniors and seniors on the 2019-20 roster; plus some very talented youngsters.

Very Interesting.

Glad for they way they are playing this year, but dang...we'll be replacing 4 "starters" and one of the 1st guys off the bench...or 3 starters and 2 off the bench. Might be a tough run next year.

Tough? You mean fun hopefully.

We can be just as good next year as this year.

Harmon, Jamal B, Reaves, Manek Doolittle

Williams, grad transfer, freeman, Kur, polla, also think Jalen Hill can play right away.
