I didn't mind Illeri Ayo-Frei's announcement. I really liked how both he and Penn incorporated a genuine catamount into their media flyer/gif. I liked Illeri's swagger. Unless you were a D1 scholarship basketball player yourself let these kids have fun. They've earned it.

Nick Lorensen posted on Twitter that he talked to Nathan Johnson and that Nathan's potential destinations are Citadel, Northern Colorado, and Campbell. Am I crazy to think that his Masters from UMBC would be more valuable than one from Campbell? I can't help but think that there's some sort of cultural shift going on there. I don't know if he's more of a hardass than Odom was or is simply more demanding in a different way.
Nathan leaving has nothing to do with Ferry. It’s all about what kind of Masters he is getting. He is going to get a masters in two different things. UMBC masters program does not offer what he is going for. From everything I have heard the players like Ferry. Some of want to move up and some are for academics.

If he can return to his freshman and sophomore form post-injury I think he can be helpful, but only one year left of eligibility makes it hard to be too excited about. He also doesn’t take a lot of 3’s, something that once again, doesn’t make sense.

Wondering if because he only played 2 games last year he might apply for a waiver after next year?

Either way, while still some holes to fill (just nearly every other team in the league), on paper UMBC I think has done as good a job as they can in the portal to get a few guys who could keep them within the top 4 next year.

I hear what you’re saying but given what we lost to transfer we I don’t know that Lawrence and Beaudoin are going to be enough. I think Mason Docks could be good but he is going to be a freshman.

I think we have two slots left. Have to make another impact transfer with at least one of them.

I’m sure the staff is still working on signing new players but after seeing Bryant and UVM bringing in such good players I’m a little concerned that we are so thin in some areas.
