A little Hartford news....

Hartford had 3 early signings:

Hartford just signed two more (Wilkinson is transferring to D2 and I assume there will be 1 more transfer out):

Video weatherington & the other 3 early guys:


Hartford also signed a new AD that will start in July. I will link a clip here but I think the new Hartford president has a famous doppelganger does anybody else see it?

She is currently the AD at University of Wisconsin-Green Bay

Hartford is going to be such a wildcard with all these International players coming in this year and next.

To me, he looks like "If Al Franken and Albert Brooks had a baby."

That's a good one. I thought it was Hartford's new Assistant to the Travelling Secretary, George Costanza.

...and with him almost assuredly goes Vasic and Petrusev (if not somewhere else higher)

With a new AD on board and Simovic departing, likely final nail for Gallagher at Hartford.

Re: A little Hartford news....

Jake Fay is transferring out. And yes, totally agree, if Simovic leaves, Vasik and Petrusev will follow to UNC Charlotte... who wouldn't...?

Sorry, Hartford fans- not sure why you can't have nice things.

On the bright side, Simovic leaving makes it a clear path to make a move on Gallgher now. Had Simovic stayed, the new AD almost had to see how that all played out w/ Vasic & Petrusev had they come, who is a legit NBA prospect.

Re: A little Hartford news....

I haven't seen anything that Vasic and Petrusev are no longer coming to Hartford anymore, just speculation because Simovic is leaving. But, yeah, Hartford is dumb for holding onto Gallagher this long, should've let him go and made Simovic Head Coach....

Re: A little Hartford news....

they did sign their LOI's... big questions for other guys set to come to Hartford as well, like Branislav Terzic... it's just so typical of Hartford Basketball to finally have real prospects set to come in, and they f that up too...

Long overdue, the guy stinks as a coach.

When I saw his shot I thought he was 75% Albert Brooks...25% George Costanza.

Terzic and Vasic signed LOI's so they will be here in this fall. The new kid from Russia and next years commit (Petrusev) are verbal commits so they are not binding.

I have no idea what they will do but if I am Coach Gal I quickly go hire a guy from Serbia who is well known in the coaching circles there. If their relationship is strong then Simonov can direct him to the right guy to bring on to the staff. If the right assistant doesn't come this foreign well will run dry and there would be very untimely transfers.

That's only if they do not ask for a release from their LOI which if they do Hartford isn't going to deny them.

I looked back when John Kopriva asked for his release from UVM when Lonergan took the GW job, and it was around June 20th. Lots of time left until the beginning of school.

But, it's possible they still both want to go to Hartford- time will tell.
