    Oh man you are underselling Dady, I'd be stunned if he's a bust.

    I know nothing about the wide majority of DMV hoops outside of PVI and the top 20 players each year... definitely don't claim to either... thus why I have and continue to have no clue who this kid is. Hope it works out great. I love athletic kids and you can generally never get enough of him. Maybe he can grow 3 inches and 70 lbs and become our starting center

    His dad is a coach and played at Butler - good bloodline.

    Maybe Paulsen preferred Otis for 4 years over 1 year of Kier

    I doubt it.

    But it will be helpful to balance out the recruiting classes a little bit.

    4 true frosh
    1 redshirt frosh
    2 Sophs
    2 juniors
    2 seniors
    2 redshirt seniors

    6 guys above sophomore status
    7 guys below sophomore status

    a deep team for once. And going forward each year there should be at least 1 senior.

    Next season is a lost season anyway. This is what I prefer.

    First of all, welcome Otis! Seems like a great pickup in the spring. His signing reminds me of when we signed Gabe Norwood years ago. Just a real good late spring recruiting cycle pickup. Nice to hear we beat out the list of schools we went up against.

    Second of all, love the fact he played with Compton Magic AAU. Perhaps he played with Hartwell or Paulsen building a west coast pipeline?

    Third of all, I think we must've forced Kier's hand to see this kid commit the next day after Kier left.

    Lastly, who died and made slapstick the king of GMU recruiting? Dr. Gunnie is still the king, last time I checked.

    I think it’s the other way around, I think that Kier leaving was the impetus that actually opened up the scholarship and allowed Otis to commit.

    With the new rules coming I expect the redshirt to be a thing of the past except in the case of injury. No sense for coaches to do it anymore when players can leave whenever they want .... get what you can while you have them.

    One more thing, I am cringing on my couch the thought of hearing the PA announcer:

    "OTIS FRAZIER the THIRRRRRRRD FOR THRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEE"

    Doubt it. Why would Otis sign with Mason knowing that he was the 2nd choice.

    Seems like that's the motto every year. I wish this Otis kid the best, but we still have a huge gap at center that Paulsen loves to keep ignoring every year.

    How so? I like the kid henry, I think hes a solid option to replace AJ moving forward. After calixte (who I'm not that high on) leaves and oduro takes the spot at the five, is that something you are comfortable with? Because personally some of the centers in the a10 are large and mason is lacking a big body over 6.10 imo
