King in waiting and immediately answers any questions to who replaces Josh IMO. I’m still concerned about the roster construction and PG spot but top to bottom this is the most talented roster in recent memory. Will be fun to watch.

Welcome John!

6'10 245 is a big big kid.

We no longer will look like a JV team against a program like SLU or Dayton in terms of height.

I'm most concerned about PG play and whether it will be enough to get us to the top 5. That said, this team is built to win and hopefully that will not hold the program back.

It'll be interesting to see if they let play Josh more of a "4" with John at the 5 at times.

This commitment has to have been taken with the intention of letting Josh play most of his minutes at the 4. Makes no sense to add a big with 2 years of eligibility remaining and make him a backup.

Really curious who winds up starting at the 1 and if that person stays the starter the whole season. Could be any of Polite, Singleton, Dinkins, or Bailey.

Having 4 Centers in a 4 out is also a choice. You could be right that we see some Oduro at the 4.

A lineup of Singleton, Fernandez, Gaines, Oduro, Ojiako would be HUGE and unlike what we are used to.

So we now have 6 guys (J. Oduro, P. Oduro, Elvis Nnaji, Malik Henry, Blake Jones, and John Ojiako) competing for minutes at the 4/5. Too top heavy?

Nope, just gives the young bigs time to develop without playing major minutes. We’re finally acting like a program that knows what the hell it’s doing again … and not a minute too soon lol

Are we 100% sure Peter Oduro is on scholarship? I watched an IG live with Coach Tomlinson earlier, after he tweeted the great day in Fairfax message, and he said to someone else who joined the live that they had 1 more scholarship left.....I took that as after this commitment we had 1 left. If Big John did take the last spot, CKE and staff must feel pretty good about the PG spot. We shall see.

I am also completely unclear about that due to comments from the coaches... but our "insiders" said he is on scholly!

Completely unclear? Haha. I’ll confirm again, yes he’s on scholarship.
the coaches have talked about having another scholarship multiple times Bryan. they also never announced him like they have Singleton, Bailey, Nnaji, and now big John. So yes, very unclear that a kid with 0 other offers got an athletic scholarship
