He seems a lot like Ward. He's only played for a few years, from abroad, similar build and skillset it seems. I liked freshman and sophomore Ward, so could be a good addition.Probably so. This is where we are right now. At this point you can expect 2 or 3 players leaving for the portal every year. VCU has done well with high school recruiting but the portal is tough. Most guys want to transfer to a P5 and our programs tend to get P5 players that want more playing time. Well, at least that is how VCU has been handling the portal. Lawal is a interesting as a filler for the 13th spot. Under the radar incoming freshman. Maybe he will become a Tre Graham type flyer on a player who was underrecruited. Lawal is raw unlike Graham but you get my point. Maybe I should have used Briante Weber instead of Graham. A player with motivation and raw skills.
With 6 new players next season and two coming off major injuries, I don't know what to expect. Ace is really the only player who we know what to expect. Nunn, how will the fresh-soph jump be for him? Banks, Kern, Deloach all have to take big forward steps. Then the other 8 that didn't play with the team last year.
