Default Next Portal Commit?

With McCollum and Hugley committed, who does everyone think is next?

Someone not on the radar. A 4 man.

Probably the ND transfer that was a Freshman last year.

Hate to say it, but we need a lot. Moser needs to take some talented dudes and roll with it.

I have my radar pinged to Ven-Allen Lubin and Quincy Guerrier.

But it could be a random early connection we didn't see. Be interesting to see who comes in for the spring game, if any.

Coach Kruger used to say how he loved taking advantage of OU's football tradition when it came to luring hoops players to OU. I know we had a terrible year in football last year, but with that great recruiting class signed, I would have to think there would be a lot of excitement for the Spring game. Not a bad idea at all to bring some hoops recruits to that game.

Exactly right, and Sampson embraced it too. Conversely back in the day the OU basketball team provided exciting Saturday games for football official visitors. They worked hand in hand. Would be nice for bball to hold up their end of the bargain again...

Grant Sherfield and Northweather went to last year's Spring Game.

Moser definitely used it.

Needs to be Quincy Guerrier. I think we also need to continue pushing for another 5 in case Hugley disappoints or steals another car

If we brought in Lubin at the 4, he can slide to the 5 if something happens to Hugley. Would love to bring in Guerrier and Lubin both. Those three could play every minute at the 4/5, which I would consider a HR in the portal along with McCollum. They would all be 20+ minute guys, but would have to have one okay with coming off the bench.

If Hugley is the 5, it's really hard to see another "good" 5 coming here. What would the appeal be to somebody like Traore, with Hugley having 2-3 years of eligibility?

Also, just how many 5's can we have on the roster?

Hugley
Godwin
Keita
Northweather

That is 4 guys that probably all should be playing the 5. Not sure we can add another, unless somebody on this list can shift down and play some 4.

I basically only consider us as having 2 at the moment.

All but one of those guys is really easy to recruit over. I have to imagine Moser had honest conversations with them all.

Sam Godwin is a great teammate and deserves a ship but unless he gets much much stronger he is at best a 3rd center min guy ideally

I have heard good things about Northweather but who knows he is a big ?

i have doubts that Keita will ever contribute at OU knee injuries in 2020 and 2022 ..

Call me crazy if you want, but I think Godwin might be able to swing to the four if he had an outside shot.

That said, hes stuck as a back up at the five for now.

Sure, but they have to actually leave or they are just taking up scholarship/roster spots.

And punting a guy out late in the Portal season (not sure if this is late or not) isn't something I'd want PM doing either. If a guy like Keita was going to be asked to leave, that should have already happened. IMO.

Godwin has very very slow feet ..

he was terrible on D vs the pick and roll as a 5 he has 0 ability to play D as a 4

13 guys aren’t going to play!!!!!!

5 bigs and 8 guards is fine: if that works out.

Teams go small. Guys can play the 4 in stretches.

OU needs to sign a 4 guy ..

next would be a 3/4 wing (hopefully that can shoot) also would love a rim protecting 5 ..

Godwin may not be ideal as a four, but his defense is no worse than Jacob Groves. If he had the potential to knock down threes like Jacob, he would be a candidate to play the four.

i think you would find that he is a significantly worse defender then JG if he was guarding 4's and wings . like jacob did all season ..

Now that he intends on entering the portal I would LOVE to see Collins in crimson and cream......(my first choice)

But I would gladly take Traore (my backup)

Lubin would be great, as would the kid from Oregon. (either one)

Then the best shooter we can find.
