Good point about UVM not needing to offer a scholarship to Shungu. But why didn't any other D1 program offered on him, or Smith, or Daylrimple?

But hey, UVM saw something in Bell-Haynes and Wills that no one else saw. Maybe they've got a crystal ball to know which guards will work in their system.

Re: 2017-2018 Vermont Catamounts

I don't want this to come out the wrong way, but I feel like if Shungu and Dalyrimple are getting significant minutes next year, one of three trouble scenarios have occurred...

1) We are in trouble, because we're nowhere near as good as we thought we were.

2) Our trainers are in trouble, because we have more players injured than healthy.

3) The league is in trouble, because our 14th and 15th best players are killin' it, which means we're going to steamroll all y'all.

Re: 2017-2018 Vermont Catamounts

I wonder if Becker is on vacation next week and gives us something the week after? I'd also like to add that Nash, not unlike Lamb, is coming to school with a DI body, and it's a little early to figure out a redshirt candidate given the players have an entire summer to hit the weight room and work on their games.

Vermont fans may want to hear from Becker after such a successful recruiting season. But what can he say that won't sound like cloaked gloating?
He probably can't believe his own good fortune.

On a parallel note, watching video of Skyler Nash does make it plain that he has a serious D1 body. Nash can score in so many ways (like Anthony Lamb) that he will be miserably tough to stop. For 4 years? Ouch.

Talk of Vermont having 15 quality players probably doesn't mean much.
A few years ago talk was similar and they had a quick exit of young players which led to a very thin bench in the '15-16 season.
Still, the Catamounts will be very good for some seasons to come.

Re: 2017-2018 Vermont Catamounts

I'm assuming the coaching staff is out recruiting this weekend since the first NCAA live period starts tonight. 4 more scholarships to fill for the 2018 class.

Re: 2017-2018 Vermont Catamounts

FYI, the press release on last year's recruiting class came out on...

June 27th.

So you know, maybe stop hitting Refresh, and go for a walk.

Nobody is talking about Stefan Smith the same way nobody was talking about Trae Bell-Haynes...which means, I love that.

There are several of Smith's games from the OSBA on youtube for those inclined to see him in action.

I guess Stef and Cam better be ready to play 40 minutes next season, because TBH will be playing for the Celtics...

You get the freebie year to declare without an agent, so you might as well. It's the new normal. He'll be back.

I guess, but he has ZERO chance of getting drafted, so what is really up? My pessimistic side says he is getting bad advice, his ego has taken over, he thinks he's too big for the AE, etc etc. Maybe he is just trying to gauge his worth in anticipation of next year's draft. But I can't put a positive spin on this. Really somewhat weird.
