    Yes sir, didn't turn out but Porter/Thompson alone is pretty ri gol darn dick u lous plus those three.

    If these guys are around as juniors and seniors I think they'll move the needle faster than a VCU fan to his arm off the dirty boulevard

    I'm watching this. What's up with your dual personas?

    Any late signing of a recruit named Otis I'm automatically inclined to be positive about.

    If it ever came out that we moved on from Kier and not the other way around then I think even @gmujim92 would admit that it's time to take Paulsen out back and give him the Old Yeller treatment.

    I would have tears in my eyes as I pulled the trigger, but yes it would be necessary.

    Most coaches are gonna give the player some time to find a new place. But jesus, how much time does a player need? How long is DP supposed to wait for? I would argue DP said look dude, I gotta do what I gotta do. Unless you wanna end this and come back today, we gotta go our separate ways.

    From the beginning DP told him the staff wasn’t going to wait around forever for him to make a decision. I’m just glad Otis III didn’t commit somewhere else while Kier was deliberating.

    Otis signed his LOI today. Gotta say that’s as good a bounce-back from the Kier news as we could’ve expected.

    The staff has been putting out a lot of content on social media about signing Otis, I’m glad to see things like that. I don’t remember seeing this much content on our recruits from the school/social media in the last 5 years, seems like a step in the right direction.

    over the last year to 18 months the posts to social media have improved whether its in season or the offseason. But it definitely was nice to see the info about Otis Frazier. I didn’t realize who he played with at prep school.

    Recruiting David N’Guessan from Mount Zion paid dividends for Mason even though he wound up signing with Va Tech. It’s funny how often that happens — a coach goes to games to scout one player and winds up recruiting one of his teammates.
