    If Forbes is able to pull that off, or a similar haul, with the returning talent we have, then we would be a top-25 team
    Yes, I realize that would be an outstanding group of recruits. That is what Forbes needs to be more competitive next year. Some of the transfers that have been mentioned/endorsed on this thread would not contribute. Just more of the same. Just separating the wheat from the chaff imho.

    Forbes has to balance incoming transfers with 2021-22 recruits. Transfers are also discouraged by Wake's transfer policies unless they are grad transfers. Quite a juggling act.

    Absolutely, also starved for success that even putting something like that out into existence just seems so surreal. Forbes is really going to have to show off his recruiting chops over the next couple months

    Shit why not. Here comes the Wild West. Good luck naming more than 1-2 players on other ACC teams in the near future.

    Will generally just post stuff from Twitter, because that feels more like "public" info.

    For example, there is a nice update from Les this morning on a couple of names the staff appears to be focusing on (and names where they aren't).
    Thanks. Heading over.

    First of all that happened once and it’s starting to feel like everything will be downhill from there

    Weren't we surprised when Mitchell went to UMass rather than Wake?

    UMass hired Mitchell’s HC at Woodstock Academy, Tony Bergeron, to help bring Mitchell there. Bergeron is also engaged to Mitchell’s Mom. Wherever Mitchell lands, it will probably be due to Bergeron getting a spot on the bench or some previous connections. Doubt we have a chance here unless Randolph was the lead guy in recruiting Mitchell with the previous staff.

    This is accurate, according to my UMass contact. Highly doubtful that we’ll land Mitchell.

    Penn State big man John Harrar is in the portal. Really developed during his career. Would be great fit for the Deacs and Coach Forbes.

    We didn't even get a visit. Felt like a possibility for a while, but then he visited UMass, ND, and UConn. By the time his decision came around, we weren't really in consideration.

    And a player to be named later.

    I expect more into the portal over the next few weeks. Particularly grad transfers who may not see NBA in their future, and are willing to parlay their last year of eligibility into a graduate degree.

    That's about as "All In" as you can get if you are the kid's head coach AND marrying his mom. Serious investment I would say.

    Great insight on Mitchell. Do we have any single assistants on the staff? Time to step up and take one for the team... ;-)

  19. #299
    Jamill Jones is single. I bet he would do it.

    Do you guys think our first transfer will make a splish or a splash?
