Yaw had three stinkers where he went a combined 3-21 from 3pt otherwise was a 36% shooter. I mean they all count but when he isn’t jacking them he shoots well enough.

Will be curious to see if Marvin Price, from Hyattsville, wants to come home. Pretty good shooter, 3* rated on VC, transferred out of Ohio. 6’5” SF.

Hoping for Sio and a Quinton/Wojcik/Spasojevic/Boonyasith transfer.

PG Darnell Rogers - Senior
F/C Dimitrije Spasojevic - Grad
G Keondre Kennedy - Senior
G LJ Owens - Senior
G Jacob Boonyasith - Senior
F Szymon Wojcik - Senior
F/C Rico Quinton (?) - Senior(?)
F Nathan Johnson - Junior
G Matteo Picarelli - Sophomore
F Yaw Obeng - Sophomore
F Anyang Garang - Freshman

It wouldn't surprise me if none of the kids we recently offered actually signed. It feels like it's been a long time since we offered a kid and then a couple of months later he commits.

I'm predicting this guy leads us in scoring (15-18 PPG). Just have to hope the percentages can end around 40/35/80.

Ray is a really solid mid-major player. I wish we had him for more than a year but this is a really promising sign.

A strong pickup. UMBC will be very strong this year. Top 2, easy. UVM has a solid crew coming back but where is the scoring coming from? And do we have the athleticism to match some teams. Start with solid defense and we go from there.

When I saw UMBC added the two big men one from Oklahoma and the other from Juco, I thought thats great but they need a scorer. This kid would fit that mold, looks like he averaged about 16ppg at Monmouth when Monmouth was good. Monmouth is very similar level to umbc. They have a nice roster and lucked out getting rodgers and the other forward back.

I think we need another shooter. Doesn't have to drop 16 a game but someone to keep defenses honest. 9ppg and low 40s from 3pt would be a big lift with the slashers and scorers we have on the floor.

But Ferry needs to be able to put together a game plan that can highlight what the team is good at. It wasn't 3pt shooting and our two best shooters left.
