They also had a verbal from Daly at this time. They had no openings for the spring signings so he ended up going to Delaware (and being their best player) and then transferred to St Josephs and is their best player. Of course then Pancake announces his transfer in August so we not only lose Pancake that year but miss out on Daly as well. Double wammy.most recently I would say the loses of recruits for Hartford after Simovic left, most notably, Filip Petrusev who will most likely end up being a lottery pick at worst a first rounder. At a lower level Luka Vasic, who since got hurt, but he would've made an immediate splash for Hartford if he didn't change teams late in recruiting. Again super low level but Hawks would've had a nice season with Pancake Thomas, and Jalen Ross' senior years together, with John Carroll returning from major injury.
