I gotta wonder if there's no campus visits before the October signing period whether that makes it harder to close the deal on out of state recruits

I believe the inability to get kids on campus is killing us across the board with both transfers and HS kids. You can't feel "family" on a zoom call.

It hasn't seemed to slow a good deal of the competition. It's early-ish in the 2021 cycle (and it may be a prolonged cycle due to COVID), but the Flyer recruiting machine is hardly cranking at full throttle.

Hugely important class replacing Crutcher, Watson, Chatman and Tshimanga, and tons of minutes to advertise with very few of the 2021-22 minutes spoken for. Coming off a mammoth season that saw tons of on-the-court success, lots of press and the national POY and COY, and they have nothing to show for it. And outside Malachi Smith (himself a legacy) not in especially great position for any big name players.

I like that the staff works slowly and clearly does serious homework on recruits' makeup and families, but you'd think the Obi spot would generate some massive interest from top-100 players. You'd think the Scoochie-Crutcher role would also be pretty attractive.

Love Grant, ecstatic with the program right now, but I'm hoping we can start cashing in soon. Would love to see Malachi on board soon, followed by some size.

I don't think any program suffered more than Dayton with Covid. Absolutely killed recruiting and tournament exposure and a possible NC.

Agree X100. It also hurt some of our players’ exposure for pro opportunities. Depending on where Obi ends up in the draft, possibly even Obi, which just seems crazy to those of us who have watched him the last two season. But it underscores the depth of the hit to this program. Year after year, recruit after recruit, across all sports, the way we beat P5 programs out of top recruits is our family feel when they get on campus. We don’t have that card to play right now.

At a certain point, we need to get beyond the lamenting.

What if is an easy game to play and is rarely of any value. I believe we would have won the national championship or at least gotten to the Final Four and there is no way to disprove it. Most if not on this board probably agree. But what if we lost in second weekend? I know; that wouldn't have happened. But it could have; statistically more than 2 of the number 1 seeds have made the Final Four approximately 14% of the time.

https://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball...A%20tournament.

Don't get me wrong, I definitely want us getting that chance.

What if Obi got injured? How would that have impacted our tournament or his draft position? The reality is the lack of tournament is more likely to have solidified his draft stock than hurt it. He was often described as a great teammate. The mock drafts often refer to him as a safe top ten pick. Where he goes is probably going to be much more impacted by the needs of the teams picking then the lack of tournament exposure.

The coaching staff has more to build on than any time in the last 50 years. Yes, they need to overcome an unprecedented obstacle. But that is what they need to do. The lack of a real campus visit definitely hurts. I doubt AG has transitioned from an amazing season to a woe is me offseason. We shouldn't either.

I don’t share your false optimism or positive illusion when it comes to the flyers. Been burned too many times. When we garner one player out the 100 we look at, that’s bad. I love our coach and AD, but we may have a couple rough years ahead without more talent coming in—and soon.

but optimism isn't actually false at all.
Optimism is a feeling here, that we
are in good hands with the best coach in America..

I trust in coach Grant

if that is false optimism, then so be it

I can appreciate the historical point. There is a difference today that will need more seasoning before Flyer fans buy all in. The next 1-3 years will play out and we’ll all know if it’s bankable.

That difference is AG & Staff’s ability to find and land the skill sets and athleticism in a recruit to fit their system and then the ability to develop those players.

That’s what they accomplished last year. No one in our starting line up was an elite - everyone was after them - recruit out of high school. The closest was our 6th man Ibi and then Crutcher. (Johnson is also in that elite category, but injury has impacted his college career and the jury is still out.) Clutch and Ibi should have monster years this year, but it’s the development of the next 4-6 players that will tell us how great AG &Staff are at finding the right recruits to fit their system. That group includes Chatman, Jordy, Moulaye, Zimi and a freshman or two coming in ready to contribute.

We are replacing roles, leadership and offensive and defensive contributions.

Obi - I think Ibi and Johnson can do that. It will be a little different, but it might be harder to defend because it’s two players to stop vs. one.

Trey - I think Jordy and Moulaye will need to step up to take over Trey’s blue-collar roles for rebounds and defense. I consider this the biggest question mark. Johnson might also play big here.

Ryan - I think Crutcher already took on the “ glue” duties at the end of last year, so we need to replace Ryan’s offense and defense. This will be Zimi and the incoming freshman challenge.

Somewhere in this mix Chatman needs to be factored in. We all saw him take it to a new level the last third of the year. I believe a big part of that was AG finding a way to “encourage” him to get there. As a junior, if Chatman finds yet another higher gear, AG’s management of his development will be even more crystal clear.

The next 2-3 years will tell us a lot about AG & Co. I don’t believe last years team and the development of Obi was a one-hit wonder. I think there is more coming.

Becky, I think you hit on a true key to the season when discussing Chatman.

I think he struggled a bit last year as he transitioned from being “the guy“ on a smaller stage to being a very important cog of a well oiled machine. As you indicated, he seemed to settle into his role the last third of last years season. Now that he is comfortable with his role, I think we’re going to see a much improved player.

Similarly, Dwayne Cohill got over the hump mentally last year (it wasn’t pretty at times) and I think he will improve significantly as well. Hopefully he has worked on his three point shooting.

If in the past (not counting last year) you told me UD would have 3 fifth yr seniors who all played significant minutes, a returning first team all A10 player who will be a senior, two juniors who were both top 100 recruits, and two redshirt freshmen who have learned in the system for a season, I’d be beyond excited for the start of the season. That’s not even counting the incoming freshmen. That is a lineup better than almost any season in the past 20 years. The A10 will be strong this year but this team will be right in the thick of it.

I would agree with both of these comments, but next season, everyone's role will change, and some might change dramatically. Last year soley revolved around Obi where Obi dominated and that in turn took pressure off other players. Next year it's going to need to be a complete team effort. The sooner players can step up and adjust to that, and the sooner we can identify weaknesses that need to be corrected or compensated for, the better off we will be. This year will not be a continuation of last year.

Springboard - agree 100% with Cohill. I did not mean to leave him out. He will be critical in giving both Crutcher and Chatman spells. Ibi was our clear 6th man last year. This year I think we will have 2-3 guys that fill that role, based on position. 1 Big. 1 Guard/Point (Cohill). 1 Guard/Forward.

As we have seen, AGs offense is position-less for the most part, but you still need a designated point guard on the floor and with Jordy you still have an old-fashioned big. How creative AG got with everything else last year was magic. I think it will be even more so this coming year with the roster filled with even more interchangeable parts.

And I think this sums up the development talent I think we have on this coaching staff...last year at this time there were posters saying if Trey and Ryan were starting, we were in trouble. Not really an indictment on their abilities as much as expecting more from the transfers. Well Trey and Ryan put in the work and had a staff bringing them along. Nobody would have said a year ago Trey and a Ryan could play pro overseas. Trey is there and I expect Ryan to get there. That’s young men wanting something and a staff that can help them get there. And I wouldn’t exactly say either are extremely athletic. I will use that term for several guys available to AG this year. Will be fun to watch how they develop and use all that athleticism. We saw what they did with Obi’s talents. I expect there will be a couple guys lining up for the opportunity to showcase their own breakaway dunks.

I do agree it will be different, but I doubt AG is going to change the system. Most of these guys have two years under that system. I expect to see the fourth year evolution of that system which will show us more of what can be done within it based on your personnel. We certainly saw an evolution between the 2nd year and last year (the 3rd year).

Becky, I concur with your comments above.

I think that the biggest risk is replacing Landers/Mikesell with Zimi. I have heard nothing about his development in the off-season.

Don't need a hoop or a court to improve your skills. Strength conditioning could be an issue, but if a player was so inclined they could spend hours with a ball and a 4 foot square piece of pavement and improve their ball handling skills a bunch. I'm guessing most have access to a hoop in some form or fashion and likely an indoor court as well. HS might have been closed, but I'm guessing most would look the other way if an alum playing on a D1 scholarship showed up by themselves or with a family member to shoot around each day for a few hours.

Improving Your Skills

"Don't need a hoop or a court to improve your skills. "

Yes, there are obstacles this year that makes things more difficult, or at least a lot less cushy.

Reminds me of one of my life stories. Back many many years ago when I was still dark haired and thin, I was the director of a small three room recreation center out by the VA. The playground had a dilapidated old hoop with a broken down chain link basket. The surface of the playground was old, not unsafe, but old and cracked.

My office overlooked that playground. Every day I saw a young high school kid practicing free throws . . . every day, one after another for about two hours. This was in the days of Roth's basketball glory. After months of watching this young man, I finally asked one of the kids who he was. He said "You don't know???? That's Donald Smith!!!! "

Where there's a will there's a way.

4 star 2021 Forward Robbie Armbrester tells me he’s received interest recently from Dayton, Ole Miss, Kansas State, Alabama, Auburn, and Georgia.

Armbrester is strong, plays with great energy, and can rebound and defend at a very high level.

Musselman at Arkansas just got a commit from #40, Chance Moore. He is their fifth straight Top100 commitment. They may be a Top 10 team whenever they start playing again.

I just checked the national recruiting sites, and they don't even show Dayton interest in Powell. Rivals still has him as a heavy Arkansas lean, which doesn't seem likely. Does anyone have something beyond his IG post? I do think it's a great sign, but it could be a savvy kid keeping his name in different ponds.

Are we possibly looking at our 1st 2 commits of the class in the near future?

Verbal Commits shows our offer, and more of a complete list of other offers.

I doubt that he is going to Arkansas, as they are pretty full up of higher rated players. C'mon down to UD. We would love to have you Mr. Powell.

Yes, it says Dayton offered on July 27, 2020. I would also be elated if we could get him and Malachi Smith as well!

Something seems off. His list of suitors doesn’t seem to match his 4 star ranking. I realize he was a verbal commit to Arkansas at one time but not many other P5 programs are showing any interest. Also, it looks like Arkansas recruited over him by the sound of things. Was he injured? Has he plateaued? Is all recruiting a little screwy this year because there’s been very little AAU ball?

He committed a little early to Arkansas and Musselman is known to extend a zillion offers. He has no problem over recruiting but this appeared to be Powell's choice. I don't think his offer was pulled. Maybe he just matured and realized Musselman and or Arkansas wasn't the right fit for him. He can play. The interest is mutual. I hope we land the kid. He's clearly a fan of the program which is a good thing either way

Take from it what you will, but an an internet recruiting source posted notes from a recent Duncan Powell interview. Powell said UT San Antonio, Old Dominion, DePaul and New Mexico were recruiting him the hardest. He also said he's going considering going the pro route.

The recruiting guy is hardly Adrian Wojnarowski (no idea on his credibility), but Powell retweeted the interview notes.

Whatever happened with the Deandre Ayton recruiting scandal? I already know the answer, nothing. Sleazy Sean Miller keeps his job and no penalties levied against the program. Unbelievable

To me it seems like it's us or Georgetown for Mali, I'd say Rutgers was up there but they just got a PG commit like a day or so ago (so writing was on the wall for them).

Georgetown brought in a PG in their 2020 class and has a 2021 PG commit already. Could be a factor

Sometimes, it takes just one game for a player's stock to skyrocket -- and even in a livestreamed world, that was the case for Sean Pedulla. The 6-foot-1 guard from Oklahoma had 31 points against Drive Nation EYBL and five-star 2022 guard Keyonte George. Pedulla went from a player with mostly mid-major offers to one with offers from Minnesota, Virginia Tech, Tulsa, SMU and Saint Louis, along with interest from Iowa State and Dayton.

"I was more so worried that I wouldn't get the chance to play at all. So I'm glad I got that chance. The circuits being canceled was a bummer but being able to play at all was all that mattered," Pedulla said. "I still knew coaches were watching on the livestream, so in a way it still had that recruiting-type setting to it."

@GtownRecruiting
Georgetown has offered 2021 prospect Cam Carter (@camryncarter23), a PG from Louisiana who has seen his stock rise significantly over the past month #Hoya

Looking at the Georgetown board, they're saying this offer going out is a sign Malachi is headed elsewhere

Good news:

2021 four-star DaRon Holmes tells me he’s being prioritized by Arizona, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oregon, Cal, Dayton, Marquette, LMU, Notre Dame, & USC.

Bad news:

2021 four-star Jusaun Holt tells me he’s being prioritized by Georgia, Xavier, Alabama, & Miami.

If we get Mali this is huge. With SS11 success it out a bigger spotlight on Mali. Quick guard, lot of skill, winning heritage with Scooch. This would be home run for CAG and staff

Oh my, he has one of the quickest, prettiest crossover dribbles that I have ever seen. I am not a fan of the one-hand pass, but he pulled one off with a no-look bounce pass to a cutter. That was pretty!!! I cannot wait to see him in a Flyer uniform. He has a pull-up jumper that Scoochie never really had. Scoochie was a master of the step-back set shot. Wow, if this really happens tomorrow, it will be an incredible get for Coach Grant and the staff. I hope Scoochie comes to his games.

Don't know that we should read too much into it, but a commit from Malachi Smith would make it two years in a row with a recruit from one of the best basketball conferences in the country, Archdiocese of New York and Diocese of Brooklyn-Queen. Smith attends St. Ray's and Koby Brea graduated from Scanlan. Year-in, year-out, these schools--Stepinac, Christ the King, Hayes, Molloy--turn out top-of-the-rankings recruits. (If you remember Joe Touissant, ended up at Iowa, that Dayton was in on pretty heavily, he's a Hayes graduate.)

Not coincidentally, it also happens to be one of the most heavily recruited conferences in the country. So, the fact that Dayton has made an effort here isn't all that surprising, but it is definitely swimming in the deep end. Here's hoping it's a prosperous recruiting area going forward.

After Mali's commitment, Dayton has four available scholarships for the 21-22 season. You can figure they'll keep at least one in in the pocket for a transfer, giving Grant three or so to fill in the next three months.

It cannot be overstated how important, nor how appealing, these scholarships are. Weaver and Cohill will demand some minutes, as will Johnson (assuming good health). Outside that, it's wide open. While the young players on campus surely have expectations, there are hundreds of unspoken for minutes.

The team just had a historic season. Obi's going to be a high lottery pick. Grant is the national coach of the year. The iron is as hot as it will ever be in Dayton. These four remaining scholarships could go a long way in determining whether Dayton evolves into a Gonzaga-like program or fades back into mid-mediocrity.

A very important (and difficult, given the pandemic) few months ahead.

I must ask a question regarding..."word here in NJ?"

Did you speak to him? Do you have an inside source?

I'm in NJ and didn't hear or read anything...

A good friend of mine is a HS basketball official who has officiated a number of Castro's games and as a result is privy to much more of the "rumor mill" than I.

UD in 4 star Wing Kaleb Washington’s top 11

Probably a pipe dream for him at this point

so, why isn't UD close to home?

perhaps a few extra miles might be
worth it to play for the best coach in America...

pondering

Go Flyers!

Until the mid-late 1980s, UD was very close to home for a lot of NYC-area college students. I think I knew at least 100 fellow students from my day (1980-84) who were from places like Bay Shore, NY and Bergenfield, NJ.

Duncan Powell posted this afternoon on his IG Story his "commitment soon," not sure when that means exactly... He seems like the perfect "4" for this program, 6'8" and extremely verstatile.

I would sure like to get a few more recruits in the fold before too long. This whole COVID thingy is making me nervous.

After we get some commits, the next battle is to wait and find out IF THERE WILL ACTUALLY BE A F'in SEASON OF BB!

So far the majority of 2020 sucks ... thank goodness for that wonderful UD season in the early part of the year ....

I don’t see where Dayton is associated with Powell anywhere. I’m assuming you’ve read
or heard something lhs?

He had Dayton listed in his instagram story this weekend. The stories expire 24 hours after posting.

That is some final 9, but Holmes is a terrific player, and would be our greatest get ever. Love everything about him including his great intensity.

Loyola Marymount is on the list because of their new head coach, Stan Johnson. Johnson was lead recruiter on Holmes while he was Marquette's associate head coach. Johnson's a strong recruiter (and you can see it in his first LMU class).

And Notre Dame is on the list because his father attended the school (could be a dark horse)

-Sounds like GA PF Ian Schieffelin is committing on Monday (we are in his Final 5)

DaRon Holmes Jr would be awesome... was someone supposed to announce their choice Sat (tomorrow), I may have that wrong...

not trimming it down, but choosing the school?

Nope, Castro is just announcing his final 3 tomorrow... Seems like his decision is not far off with that.

Seems like precarious timing vis a vis Castro's pending announcement.

Man, it seems like UD and Virginia Tech offer dang near all of the same kids.
