There's 3 frontcourt players CCSU seems to still be in the mix with : Michael Binns, Ibrahim Konate, & Jay McFarland.

I read elsewhere (I think at a Fairfield U site) that Konate is like 6'9. He'd be ideal for this team, but McFarland would also be a nice fit b/c he'd provide experienced beef up front for a couple of years...

I think McFarland got arrested, or something along those lines. I remember seeing something about it on a website. I have no idea how that would effect his recruiting. I have heard about Konate and think he would be a great fit for this team. He sounds like a blocking and rebounding machine. I have also heard the Central is looking at Sam Young from a school called "Friendly". I really think that central needs to sign another big man. But usually the names of possible recruits I get when I look around have nothing to do with who they sign. They will probobly sign another guy we havent even heard of, maybe even another player from Canada. If Middleton is a project and won't play much, this team will not have many big bodies to play. Pittman and Obie are very nice players, but they cannot do all the work down low. This team will be in very big trouble if neither Sobers, Middleton or another player they sign don't turn into a solid starting big man. This team will get outrebounded like crazy.

I've seen some recuit stuff like that out on websites too. With the 5/8 rule thrown out, does CCSU expect to sign anyone else this period? When does the period end? Another commitment would look real good.

I think Howie knows he needs another big man. But if he cant find a good one, theres no point in signing a guy that won't be good and will tie up a scholarship. Maybe Howie thinks Sobers will turn into a very good player and is banking on that. That would explain if they decide not to sign another player. Even if they dont sign another big man, a very athletic swingman would be a good get. Maybe a big 2 guard who could rebound. Like Ricardo Scott.

Any additional news on the recruiting front? Any scholarships available, or is the team set for 2004-05?

I think that is it ... The Late Signing period ended May 15th.
