    Scholarship availability aside, if we somehow beat out everyone on that list for Burton I will buy 10 copies of Paulsens basketball book.

    It was nice Mason was even mentioned on that list. But hey, worth a shot and a phone call. Glad they are trying.

    Wonder who he had the connection with on the staff, hopefully it was Simpkins

    We were one of his final 5 official visits when he was a HS Senior. His original decision came down to Mason, UMASS, Wichita, Butler and some other mid major.

    Not a criticism - we absolutely should be going after him - but it is hard to imagine looking at that list that we are even in his top 5. I'm glad we once were but it's nearly impossible to believe we could be now

    Maybe he learned all that glitter isn't gold in this process. But agree with you it will be a difficult sell especially since he isn't local.

    My favorite part of the video above is watching Burton cut the VCU press into shreds.

    Just hope he doesn't end up in the A10 if he isn't at Mason (unlikely)

    I saw Arizona is in on him as well. There's no way he ends up in the A-10.

    What was Greg Marshall doing with that team? 5 transfers out already.

    You don’t like Marshall?

    Loyalty needs to be appreciated as well. He could have taken 99% of jobs out there at one point and he chose not to. I have heard he is very dickish, but he is definitely a damn good recruiter and coach. This mass exodus is troubling though but I have heard for Shockers fans that some of these kids will go back on the team. Apparently half the team hated the other half this year, not fully on Marshall but he definitely gets some blame

    He has done a great job at Wichita but I find it easy to root against him and most likely will continue to do so.

    Just a matter of time as they all figure out their scholarship situations.

    We're slowly hearing about players entering the portal at other schools, so I would assume news would be coming sooner rather than later. The earlier guys enter the portal, the more opportunities they will have to be recruited. That is assuming that we will have a transfer or two. Of course, the guys can take however long they need to make these decisions.

    Would it be bad etiquette to speculate on which of our guys may be transferring? At this point, there are only a couple that would really shock me.
