Welcome Kim English

Hall of Famer
It would be interesting to know what process Oduro went through this summer with the NBA draft evaluation. What feedback did he get? How does KE balance Oduro's development needs to best position him for the draft versus what's best for the team (certainly not mutually exclusive, but there has to be some tension there).

I second this one.

Yooo, we are working on a 3 part Kim English Summer Series show. It will be recorded in 3 parts. This won’t be stale like the coaches show. We won’t be rehashing last season, we moving forward. I’m going to give you a sneak peak at our outline, what would you change? Get excited, this is massive -

Would love to hear his thoughts on NIL and any impact they have seen there.

Yeah I’d also love to know the impact NIL’s have had on the recruiting and transfer process. Not sure he’d give a straight answer.

I can give some insight here but things may have changed since my last couple convos. I know we were top 3 in the A10 in total NIL deals. We have Jim McKay, Purple Strategies and Washington Media Scholars Foundation. Purple Strategies will sponsor 2 players a year. I think we can all guess who will take Schwartz’ spot. KE will talk about the importance of these deals and creating a community around it but can’t talk about impact on recruiting. I guess he may, but it will be limited. If you own a businesses, consider partnering with a player!

I’ve heard the same - as far as the A10 goes we are actually in a pretty good spot regarding NIL compared to other A10 teams.
This is awesome. I know we have some good ones in our corner, but wasn't sure how that stacks up with the rest of the league.

A bunch of people know the owner and CEO of ATG Title. He is an alum and has been a long time fan. But he took time off when Hewitt was here and been losing a long time, however, has recently been coming around again to games.

Someone from the AD should reach out to him.
It is my understanding that some AD's are getting involved in NIL to some degree, but so far, my understanding is that Mason AD is not getting involved in arranging NIL or hasn't with any of the already established ones. My very loose understanding is they are trying to avoid any sort potential violation with the NCAA. I could be completely wrong. That is just the tidbit of info I have to date.

IF I am correct, it might be better for the fans that know said CEO to reach out to him directly instead of waiting for the AD to do it.

Oh man, just recorded our first episode of Talk With Us with Kim English and we definitely cleared some shit up. Tell me what you think, what position will Saquan play?
I said it when he signed (and I was mocked for it), but I think Singleton’s role on this team is PG. Can’t wait to hear the interview (love the title too).

Looking forward to the episode and appreciate you taking care of this.

It’s refreshing to be able to clear stuff up and not scratch our heads all summer. I’m sure point guard will be answered.
