Subject: 2020-2021 Current Roster and Filling the Final 3 Spots

6'0" - Majesty Brandon - Senior
6'3" - Asa Beyah - Freshman
6'4" - Armon Harried - Sophomore
6'5" - Jordan Henderson - Junior
6'5" - Akrum Ahemed - RS Freshman
6'6" - Siem Uijtendaal - Freshman
6'7" - Malek Green - Junior
6'8" - Jalanni White - Senior
6'8" - Scott Hitchon - Senior
6'10" - Jacco Fritz - Sophomore

How to Fill the Final 3

In my opinion -
1) JUCO PG
2) Freshman Big - 6'9" Toyaz Solomon perhaps
3) JUCO or Grad Transfer 2/3 scorer

Are there no plans for Dantai to get the year back when he barely played due to injury?

Why would that even be a consideration?

Why indeed. Nice young man with hands of stone. Never got better in his years with us.

Looks like all but one of the PGs we offered have committed elsewhere including to a DIi school. Losing the Zachery kid to UB hurts in particular. Hopefully there’s a late qualifier in the woodwork who can step in and play. But it appears that except for As Beyah, we just cannot compete in the recruiting wars even vs, the lowest end schools.

Nathan LeClair does an outstanding job at verbal commits but I think you are putting way too much stock in their recruiting charts. The information they gather comes primarily from tweets. If you remember, last year Harried, Fritz, and Ahemed came out of left field as none were ever listed as recruiting targets previous to them committing. And I told Nathan about Majesty Brandon.

I seriously doubt the D2 kid turned Canisius down to go St. Thomas Aquinas. More than likely, Canisius showed interest in him at some point and that cooled off. I'd be willing to bet that less than half of those that they are actively recruiting, are or have been listed on that chart.

Good points. Hope we are pursuing some talent under the radar.

What a familiar story.We never seem to out recruit good programs for quality players.Late qualifiers and projects. Just hoping some will work out.It is what we have become.

Who are we expecting to be out-recruiting? When was the last time we got a recruit over a "good program"? Quality players can still be out there.

Griffer is right on . It IS who we have become. A last place team picking up the crumbs. Leftovers. Projects. The schools signing our “ recruits” bring out how pathetic we are becoming. Realty hurts.

Meanwhile, we read in the News about seemingly solid recruits signing with Bona,UB, and Niagara.

Just a little tired of the comments posted by the usual Griff fans with fingers on the panic button. With two open ships to fill, I'm confident RW will fill the remaining slots with good prospects. My big concern at this point is the future of Winter sports. Usually, the new people are on campus by June 1 for Summer sessions. If this crisis doesn't end soon, who knows if there will be a basketball season. Concerning the Buffalo News. I just received my bill for six more months, and the increase was shocking. The News is hurting financially with a skeleton staff, so don't expect too much coverage of college basketball. Any coverage will most likely go to the Bulls unfortunately. Go Griffs!!!

But their penalty is a mere slap on the wrist.

It’s a joke. They are still able to go to postseason play. Especially considering it was Forgery much less. Imagine what that scumbag Oates got away with.

That $5000 fine is an absolute joke.
