Drake's coach left so he changed plans

Totally forgot Medved was there. At least we can say one nice thing about Furman now :D :shock: :D

I like him a lot. Gives us a little of what we don't have. Super athletic, shot blocker, rebounder. Uses both hands well around the basket. Not sure if he can shoot from outside, but we have plenty of those guys this year.

Great news. Messiah Jones will be an excellent fit for the Wofford Terriers, part of something special!

The Wofford campus on a nice spring day is hard to say no to.

Wofford has certainly had some success with 6-6ish, athletic post players.

It does look like a really strong class.

I'm still kind of wondering where 3 scholarships come from -- Brooks and Lowery....anyone else? I wonder how things are shaping up with Fletcher?

Three scholarships came from the two guys leaving and one open scholarship we already had. We are now using all scholarships.

Another loss to the team is Hickert who is transferring to North Greenville to play baseball per twitter.

Too bad to lose Hickert; he could have contributed. He is a fine pitcher; wonder why he is not doing baseball for us. Wish him well, good kid.

Coach addresses recruiting class and logic for keeping one scholarship in his back pocket. http://www.goupstate.com/sports/2018052 ... es-that-is

This is not surprising concerning Lowery. It seemed more and more like he did not fit into a prominent future plans. Good luck to him. But it seems like with have some quality signees coming aboard. Hopefully they can make our team stronger and deeper. And hopefully they can play good defense.


He will be at Oklahoma Baptist.
