Montez Mathis is in the portal. 6'4 guard out of Baltimore who is leaving Rutgers.

Not sure Mason needs another guard, although if Cooper plays that 2/3 and Schwartz is more of a 3/4, I could see them wanting another 2/3 guy. It would certainly put Polite/Hartwell/Johnson more into the PG rotation and have Gray be pretty much bench warming for the first year.

If Mathis is better than Hartwell and XJ they should sign him. You win with better players not a better roster makeup. Ask Bona who played 5.5 dudes this year and rolled the rest of the league. Get the best 7-9 guys mins and the others will leave on their own anyways

I agree on the need for another guy at the 2. Gray can help fill that role as the secondary ball handler beside whichever PG we have on the floor. I wouldn’t bet on him warming the bench if he’s healthy.

I’m still intrigued by Jordan Hairston as a shooter.

maybe gray steals Hartwell minutes or XJ if he isn’t healthy. But it’ll be up to those guys to lose the minutes so to speak. I’m sure Gray will need time to adjust to d1 ball.

One thing I saw about Mathis was that he defends at a really high clip. Even if he’s not the best shooter that could be something that’s valuable. No idea on what English would want or would even be interested of course.

I’d have to look into Hairston more.

For what it’s worth VCU wants Hairston. Not sure if KE is looking at the kid or not. I personally hope so.

Preferred Walk-On
This sucks for the kids professional future. No doubt. But for our purposes, this is all reward and no real risk for Mason since he's a senior. He won't eat up a scholarship for multiple years if he gets hurt again. But a legit 7-footer with athleticism could do some real damage in the A-10 and perhaps well enough to get looks from a few teams overseas.
