Add rising junior Miles Brookins to the list of La Salle transfers. He was the starting center at the beginning of the season but he saw reduced minutes as the 2 freshmen bigs developed. Another transfer is possible as the roster takes on a whole new look. After this past season the only way to go is up.
URI just signed Jeremy Sheppard, 6'-1" shooting guard. He should add some MUCH NEEDED distance shooting after a dreadful 3-point shooting % this past season.
He's from Richmond, started out at East Carolina in 2016-17 season and made the AAC all-rookie team, then got thrown off the team for violating team rules. Has since played for College of Central Florida, and shot 44% from 3-point range last season.
Hopefully whatever got him removed from the team was typical freshman immaturity and he has grown since. We'll have strong senior leaders in Jeff Dowtin and Cyril Langevine for everyone else to follow.
