    Usually recruits tweet about it and he didn’t. They didn’t even wait an hour.

    Why would he go to Bona unless Schmidt is selling Osun to the NBA after next season? Ousmane is a 5, right?

    Makes sense then. From what I read on Twitter it sounded like he is more of a traditional post player, but Schmidt can work with two guys who hang around the basket.

    Bona would be nasty with a legit 4 man next to Osun.

    After looking at the Boyd page I'll chip in with my depth chart for next year with the understanding that Boyd's return my have a ripple effect on who stays/goes.

    1 - XJ (25 min) Polite (10 min) Hartwell (5 min)
    2 - Greene (30 min) Boyd (10 min)
    3 - Miller (30 min) Boyd (10 min) Daddy
    4 - AJ (35 min) Mar (5 min)
    5 - Oduro (25 min) Henry (10 min) Calixte (5 min)

    You have freshman getting more minutes than Hartwell and Calixte. I’m not saying you’re wrong. It’s just hard for me to expect anything from freshman.

    It’s not the worst idea in the world if he and his family are willing and we aren’t decimated with injuries.

    Thanks, forgot about him. Not intentional. I see him getting minutes at the 2. Boyd may get more than I said above at the 3. Again, thanks. I knew I was forgetting someone.

    I'll never question Hartwell's work ethic, heart, or desire. He's just too small. Calixte simply has not shown much, if any improvement. Below is my post from the State of the Program. I stand by what I said. I agree with you that it's hard to know what we're getting with the freshmen. I hope they have enough to contribute from day 1. Time will tell.

    Jamal Hartwell
    -
    29.0 minutes per game.
    9.6 points per game.
    1.8 rebounds per game.
    Field goal percentage of 38.2%.
    3 point percentage of 31.1%.
    Free throw percentage of 80.0%.
    48 assists.
    38 turnovers.
    0 blocks.
    10 steals.
    Jamal’s minutes almost tripled this year compared to his freshman year. Concerning to me is the drop in his 3 point percentage from last year. Freshman year he shot 44.6% from 3, this year 31%. I will never question his heart, desire, competitive nature, or work ethic. What I can question he has no control over, his size. Jamal is just too small to be an effective 30 minute per game player in the A10. A point guard should be pass first and shoot as a last option. 48 assists in 840 minutes? He did find the time to take 259 shots, 151 of them 3’s. We don’t need Otis 2.0. We need him to shoot less, pass more, and pressure the ball when he is in. If DP continues to play him blindly like he did Otis we’ll pay for it. Again, I respect the young man like crazy. But, size does matter. If Jamal plays less but is more efficient with his production we’ll be better off.

    Greg Calixte -
    13.2 minutes per game.
    2.9 points per game.
    3.3 rebounds per game.
    Field goal percentage of 60.3%.
    Did not attempt a 3.
    Free throw percentage of 31.6%.
    13 assists.
    23 turnovers.
    10 blocks.
    8 steals.
    I’m sure Greg is a fine young man. He seems to represent the university well. He can grab the occasional rebound and score near the rim when put in the right position. Bottom line though, he really hasn’t shown much growth since his freshman year and I don’t expect him to contribute much next year either. I can see him being passed over by Malik Henry rather quickly.

    Flip Hartwell and Polites minutes and reduce AJ by 5 and spreads them between Henry and Calixte and I agree with the rest.

    Sound logic. Hope to buy you another shot of really "premium" liquor next season. ;)

    Look forward to it. Lucky for us our attendance isn’t high enough to be impacted by the corona virus. You can social distance in the Pat Done with 900 of your closest friends (and swim mom).
