I've lost track of the math . . . we will lose six seniors after this season (since it sounds like Lazenby will transfer), and so far we have five kids signed in this class. So wouldn't we technically have a scholarship for him even without a transfer? Or do you just mean that it is likely someone will leave because of playing time? The latter would make sense, just wanted to make sure that is what you mean.

Impressive young man with an incredible story. Surprisingly articulate for a relative newcomer to the English language. Tall, thin, athletic recruit with long arms. If he grows into those feet, he could be an inch or two taller by the time he arrives on campus. I like what I see of him on video.

Hope we get this one. Lot of skill. Don't know why anyone would have to transfer. Manek and Doolittle are pretty set now and Muni will be gone.

Anyang is really quick and mobile for such a tall guy. And nice shooting touch.

Was the Kur Kuath out for the year news posted? Sorry I haven't been on in a while.

Yes. He has a bad back. They’re redshirting him.

I mentioned it several weeks ago, though I can't remember which thread it was in. I think it was one where we were discussing Muni's ankle. I imagine Kuath will get the medical redshirt and have two years left, which will help us down the road. But given Muni's issue over the past month, I think Kuath would have gotten a decent amount of playing time had his back issue not come up. Like some have pointed out, though, our small lineup has worked very well.

Yes, it was. He’s using it as a redshirt season. Haven’t heard if it’s medical?

That said, I think WichitaSooner is correct. We still have a 2019 scholarship available.

I would think Polla would be a candidate to transfer. He’s not getting any playing time.

Also, Corbin Merritt is not having a good year at Daytona State. Averaging around 5 points and 5 boards per game in juco. I don’t know if that stress fracture in his foot is still bothering him.

Maybe Kuath is a possibility... I doubt it though.

So does he come in as a freshman, or is a transfer of some kind?
