Sure would be great to have some recruits on hand for the big night home game tonight - this is PRIME recruiting season, programs are going all in right with visits and in-homes, and this is the biggest true home game of the season thus far...

Very rare opp to have a Sat night game, against the preseason fav with HU playing well, and actually the projection for a good crowd - need to maximize

Do u want the bad news Polito or the bad news this kid Xavier Pinson from Chicago trimmed his list and cut us out of the picture. 2018 PG Xavier Pinson (6-3, 160, 2★) has trimmed his list, and removed Hofstra from consideration.With his commitment coming tomorrow, Pinson cuts his list to 3 - Missouri Georgetown Wisconsin
I don't really think we were ever seriously in this conversation?? When it comes to PG's we need to land someone who's going to be around a while and who has game. We have 4 kids(PG's) showing on V/C all 2 star players for 2018.

Last Thursday during the Pride Lounge chalk talk coach Farrelly said he was just back from a recruiting trip to Fla...I'm sure these guys are beating the bushes...we desperately need bigs who can play right away and another PG.

Did he sound confident that we can land a couple of bigs that can contribute right away ??? If we can we are in good shape for next season, if not we are in trouble

Given our stealthy recruiting history, the following may not mean much, but none of the PF or C listed on verbal commits are located in Florida.

Roks replacement is huge - not just rebounds, but a big that plays defense is a vital need - gotta have d somewhere, and if it isn't gonna be in the backcourt as the first line of defense, then the post must be strong. Would love a shot blocking beast who changes an opponents gameplan, makes them more one dimensional - can be a huge factor, saw it even with just Truehearts play

Matter of fact, a bigger version of ST would prob be just what the doc ordered - something like 6'9 / 6'10, 225ish, can pull 8-10 boards, 2-3 blocks, and 8-12pts a game inside/out, give or take...

Miller is looking to decide end of March. LOVE that player, praying he stays under the radar, and HU puts the full court press on him.

Guess we now know what Coach Farrelly was working down in FL...

Love the Ricky Torres offer as well, kid is averaging 11pts, almost 4rbs, and nearly 6assists per game on a good Juco squad. Has some high major offers.

Some good PG prospects.... but where are the bigs???

Yeah the good big players are not as plentiful as guards. We seem to be offering a lot of PG's of late; Not super desperate right now since we have an extra year with DB BUT ALWAYS NICE TO GET a PG in the fold and have him working out with the team. Who will be the first 5 that we land??

2/9/2018 - 2018 PG Franco Miller, Jr. (6-2, 180, 2★) has received an offer from Hofstra. - Per Link
2/8/2018 - JUCO PG Tobias Howard (6-2, 185, 2★) has received an offer from Hofstra.
2/7/2018 - JUCO PG Ricky Torres (6-3, 170, 2★) has received an offer from Hofstra.

These HU JUCO targets are top 100:

#16 - 6'10 Antun Maricevic
#18 - 6'6 Marlon Taylor
#35 - 6'3 Ricky Torres
#85 - 6'2 TJ Howard

Prep player 6'2 Miller Jr is not yet in the Canadian rankings, but I expect him to land in the top 25 nationally. Under-recruited STUD.


Basically ANY of the above would be fantastic...impact guys, some from day 1.

Based on yesterday's performance we need them all.

I think a minimum of two bigs. Sorry don’t trust Schutte or Trueheart to play the 5.

Let's not throw shade on ST he has played well for us and he's not a 5 to begin with. I believe he's going to be part of the nucleus that will take us back to the promised land. Schutte may surprise some of us let's wait and see. I've no delusions that he'll step into ROK's shoes let's be clear on that but maybe with some development he'll step into Hunter's shoes.

nope - certainly not a 5 - but a 4 and I wouldn't mind him playing a 3 (if we ever play such a lineup-and not 3 guards)
