Fonz is looking for a school closer to his Tacoma home. He's not coming back.
So... Seattle U? Any other lower level D1 schools up that way that I am forgetting?

I know that most people probably figure he's sticking around, but I can confirm that there's exactly a 0.000% chance that Justin Bean is going anywhere.
:lol: nice detective work there.

BTW, it's crazy to think but best returning player we have is a product of the Duryea era.
Haha, I figured it was obvious, but I've also seen speculation that he could follow Smith to Utah. Which is nonsense and has been all along.
I think Duryea could recruit. I don't think he could inspire or manage in game. We got some talent while he was here. He just didn't utilize it or discipline it.
He recruited McEwen which even though Mcewen's college career has been disappointing was a big time recruit. Probably one of the highest level recruits USU has ever had. His staff also found Bean who was a true diamond in the rough. Credit there. Otherwise he wasn't a good recruiter.
Louis Wilson recruited McEwen.
Let's be honest, Condie recruited McEwen.
According to McEwen, Louis Wilson was the reason he signed with USU. Wilson and Geno Morgan were friends. Geno Morgan recruited McEwen to Wasatch Academy. 6:35 on the video.

Marco still has not committed anywhere.
Committing to the U tomorrow.. :c
Looking at Utah's roster, they seem to already have 13 scholarship players. Will he be walking on?
Utah has about 5 spots available due to many transfers.
I admit I don't know anything about Utah's roster except what is listed on the official website (and Verbal Commits). Here is who they have listed:

Pelle Larsson 6-5 215 G So. Nacka, Sweden / Riksbasketgymnasiet Luleå
Jaxon Brenchley 6-5 194 G Jr. Providence, Utah / Ridgeline HS
Eli Ballstaedt 6-5 200 G Jr. Heber City, Utah / Wasatch HS
Rylan Jones 6-0 178 G Jr. Holladay, Utah / Olympus HS
Mikael Jantunen 6-8 220 F Jr. Helsinki, Finland / Helsinki Basketball Academy
Riley Battin 6-9 230 F Sr. Oak Park, Calif. / Oak Park HS
Jack Jamele 6-5 185 G R-Fr. Palos Verdes, Calif. / Palos Verdes HS Middlebrooks Academy
Lahat Thioune 6-10 243 C Jr. Dakar, Senegal / Florida Prep
Harrison Creer 6-4 234 G So. Holladay, Utah / Olympus HS
Branden Carlson 7-0 219 C Jr. South Jordan, Utah / Bingham HS
David Jenkins Jr. 6-2 195 G Sr. Tacoma, Wash. / Wilson Senior HS UNLV / South Dakota State
Gabe Madsen 6-5 195 G So. Rochester, Minn. / Mayo Senior HS Cincinnati
Rollie Worster 6-3 198 G

I count 13 players total (unless one of these dudes is a walk-on), including 9 guards, 2 forwards, and 2 centers. Where would Marco fit in? On paper, it looks like Smith chose Rolie over Marco. Given his age and potential, I'd probably done the same.
If that roster is current and no one else leaves they have 3 schollies left.
I'm confused, there are 13 players listed and 13 scholarships (13=13), what am I missing? How would they have 3 open?

So should I find it encouraging that Marco hasn’t committed to Utah yet, or is that just wishful thinking?

Yes. Three walkons but Jantunen just announced he's gone too.

I've heard there's a chance we may be adding another transfer soon. This one from an in-state school.

It's not Wyatt Lowell. For the record, it's definitely not a done deal but I do know there's been interest shown from both sides. It's someone who is currently in the transfer portal.

So that would mean it is either:

Jordan Brinson (UVU)
Jordan Kellier (Utah)
Darnell Latham, Jr. (SUU)
Ian Martinez (Utah)
Norbert Thelissen (Utah)

Only the last two move the meter for me.

I'm with you...Martinez would fit our most obvious need from that list of players.

Martinez just committed to Maryland. Thelissen would be a solid get but I don't think he ever even set foot on Utah's campus, so it's not like he has a deep connection to the state. Kellier and Latham are not MWC players IMO. My best guesses:

Jordan Brinson (if staff thinks he's healthy)
Jesse Wade (ditto)
Kolby Lee (not a position of need, but a solid player)

You're right, I forgot about the YBU transfers. My bad.

I really hope not. I see no one in the portal from any in-state school that I am interested in having on our team. Sorry, but gotta be honest. Martinez was the only one that would have moved the needle and he is off the board.

I’d honestly be angry if we used a scholarship on any in-state occupants of the portal. There are sooooo many promising players out there in the portal that we shouldn’t be wasting our time on in-state guys that didn’t produce at peer (BYU) or lower division schools. We are soo much better than BYU castoffs. At least I think so.

Some stats:

https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... jesse-wade
https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... /kolby-lee
https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... an-brinson
https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... an-kellier
https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... -latham-jr

I can't make a case for how any of these guys make our roster better. If any of these guys join the team as anything but a walk-on, I'll be pressing the panic button.

I’d prefer adding Kennedy and/or Akin from UMBC to anyone on that list.

It could very well be Lee. He is expected to make an announcement on Monday about the in-state team that he will be transferring to. It is not UVU and the school he is transferring has been recruiting him hard. My guess is that it's either us or Weber. Lee's mom played bball at Utah State.

He mentions “driving down” to see his wife in the article. I assume it’s us or Weber. We’ll see Monday.

I really hope not. I see no one in the portal from any in-state school that I am interested in having on our team. Sorry, but gotta be honest. Martinez was the only one that would have moved the needle and he is off the board.

I’d honestly be angry if we used a scholarship on any in-state occupants of the portal. There are sooooo many promising players out there in the portal that we shouldn’t be wasting our time on in-state guys that didn’t produce at peer (BYU) or lower division schools. We are soo much better than BYU castoffs. At least I think so.

Some stats:

https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... jesse-wade
https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... /kolby-lee
https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... an-brinson
https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... an-kellier
https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... -latham-jr

I can't make a case for how any of these guys make our roster better. If any of these guys join the team as anything but a walk-on, I'll be pressing the panic button.

I’d prefer adding Kennedy and/or Akin from UMBC to anyone on that list.
Aggies22 dug a bit deeper into it, and it sounds like the in-state player being discussed is no longer a possibility. Which I think is probably for the best.

Yeah, I was thinking it was USU for sure when I started reading that article but the fact he says he will be joining an "up and coming" program made me think there is no way he is taking about the Aggies.

I have to believe it is WSU.

Sounds more like SUU or Dixie to me. WSU is established too.

I don’t much care as long as it isn’t here!

Except he added he'll be "driving down" to visit his wife on weekends. Maybe Westminster or Utah? Hahaha...

You’re assuming a BYU basketball player knows the difference between North and South.

My mother in law always says her direction is “driving down” when she talks about going from Las Vegas to Logan and she is a BYU graduate.

I really hope not. I see no one in the portal from any in-state school that I am interested in having on our team. Sorry, but gotta be honest. Martinez was the only one that would have moved the needle and he is off the board.

I’d honestly be angry if we used a scholarship on any in-state occupants of the portal. There are sooooo many promising players out there in the portal that we shouldn’t be wasting our time on in-state guys that didn’t produce at peer (BYU) or lower division schools. We are soo much better than BYU castoffs. At least I think so.

Some stats:

I'm pretty sure there is a D-1 team in St. George.

Not only is he not a possibility, I got the impression he was never considered.

Barring another player on the team leaving (which I still put odds at about 50%) it looks like we're done. Let's assume Brock Miller is a go. Here's my guess at a depth chart:

G) Rylan Jones, Steven Ashworth
G) RJ Eytle-Rock, Max Shulga, Muzamil Ameer-Hamoda
G) Brock Miller, Sean Bairstow
F) Justin Bean, Liam McChesney, Cade Potter
C) Brandon Horvath, Trevin Dorius, Szymon Zapala

And honestly, I like it. :cool2:

I'm good with it. I still think we have one too many scholarships devoted to frontcourt players. We are a little thin on the guard line. Although, I think Cade Potter plays more like a "big guard" like Bairstow, so maybe not? If you watch his highlights, he's always on the perimeter.

Could be. Probably should wait and see what the fallout is from adding Jones. Or is this information that everyone is a “go” from after the Jones addition?

I do too, especially with the addition of the Flying Dutchman. We won’t be elite defensively without Queta or Marco but we also won’t be anemic offensively. I think we’re all forgetting just how bad we were offensively this season. We could count on a 7-10 min drought in both halves every game last year. It proves how good our defense was that we could still earn an invite.
