    lol, if that happens, when AJ's career at Mason is over we'll be referring to him as Dr. Anthony Wilson Jr.

    To be fair, watching some Dave Paulsen basketball on offense is sometimes 40 minutes of hell to us as fans lol.

    I feel like Golden at U of R is going on a decade down there.

    You'd think with two Canadians on the coaching staff, we'd have a shooter's chance at Charles, but that's recruiting in Fairfax, I guess.

    The more I think about it, the more I find myself hoping we get Williamson. Even at
    6-7, he could be a great complement to Oduro and give us a physical presence at the 5. I was originally concerned about his lack of length but am becoming less so.

    Not comparing the 2, but Tre Mitchell plays the 5 pretty well in the A-10 and he’s only
    6-8.

    Also Hasahn French is only 6-7 and he’s a damn beast. We could definitely use a bruiser up front.

    Hasahn French was also 230 pounds and a consensus 5 star on most recruiting sites coming out of high school, he didn’t need to physically grow into the position like the guys we are looking at, he could just focus on catching up to the speed of the game.

    French wasn’t a 5 star ... no way he ends up at SLU if he was (even with Ford’s penchant for buying players).

    But my point was just to compare body types. Williamson is already a big boy — Rivals lists him at 6-7, 240 — and will only get stronger in a college conditioning program.

    I’m pretty sure one ranking site had him as a 5 star because I remember wondering how the hell SLU pulled it off.

    I know. Not saying he was a scrub by any means, but consensus 5-star guys don’t go to Saint Louis University ... Carte’are Gordon was a fringe 5-star/trending downward 4-star when he signed with SLU and turned into a colossal bust.

    Travis Ford is dirty AF. The greasiest coach in the A-10 and it isn’t close.

    He had as good a team as money can buy at Okie State and never won squat. He gets players but as a coach he sucks.

    I think you are thinking of Cart’Are Gordon?

    French was a 4 star on ESPN and 3 star on 247. Still a great get by SLU.

    Williamson has a broad frame. He reminds me a little of The Hulk: that square body.
