    Caliente for Calixte. But who is this mysterious stranger?

    Not to put any pressure on Calixte or anything, but last time we got an April commitment from Mount Vernon, it was Sherrod Wright. :)

    What are his hopes and dreams? Likes and dislikes? Why did he come without a basketball development facility on campus?

    These are things Jollay must know!

    Welcome Greg! You are gonna look great in green and gold! The future is bright!

    solid class with Calixte, and Mar and Wilson on the wing with Greene at the Point.

    BTW, Pablos, is this our first recruit by the name Greg?

    I hear he enjoys watching old 80's movies about break dancing, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

    Looks like we beat out fellow A-10 conference mates St. Bonaventure and La Salle for his services, as well as perennial Big East bottom-feeder DePaul (hey, still a Big East offer).

    Future looks so bright for Mason.

    Every position has an able body now.
    Only thing Mason was missing last year was a player to provide Jenkins relief. Troy and Revao were much improved by the end of the season. And now they have Calixte to compete against. Competition for minutes brings the best out of everyone.

    This has the potential to be a great get. This is exactly what Mason needed. Well done coach, well done.

    Struggling to get any good YT videos of him. Just saw that one dunk, his AAU team was stacked and he didn't make many of the highlight videos. My understanding is he has a good frame for a big man, has some athleticism and can rebound but is raw offensively.

    Here a couple of clips I found that remind me of Jalen Jenkins.

    Nothing like being told that you're gonna get 4 years of major PT if your game shows up on a program that's ready to take off....

    Agreed, and here's hoping this is the last recruiting class to which we need to dangle that carrot.

    Four of the five spots are on lock for at least the next two years with guys either on the roster or committed.

    Literally the only question left is which of these young bigs is going to grab the 5 spot.

    I would redshirt Troy if anything. He was a glorified cheerleader if anything last year.
