NU offers Shemani Fuller of the 2021 class. Fuller is a 6'9 PF from the Bronx. Played for Woodstock Academy. Fuller has plenty of offers. A good deal of the MAAC schools have offered. 3 or 4 of the A10 schools have offered.

Justyn Mutts has entered the transfer portal. Mutts played at Delaware. One of those grad transfers with 2 years to play. Had a good year which makes me believe he is looking to transfer up not down or laterally. Interesting name considering we recruited him out of HS. Does check all the boxes we are looking for: 6'8, can score, rebound and has experience.

Are we to assume GP has closed the book on pursuing 5th year transfers and JUCO's for the upcoming season ?

I think if the right opportunity came along they would still fill the spot, but the focus now would be for next year. A lot of things could unfold over the Summer.

Not to get off the recruiting questions, but has anyone heard any news on the open position of Ass't Coach and Director of Basketball Operations. GP has two positions that need to be filled?

Is Jared Billups any relation to HOF Chauncey Billups? Great genes!

Tariq Eisa, from Matt's list, to Lamar.

I agree with Mickey with regards to recruiting. Stay patient while getting a jumpstart on 2021 seems to be the direction this staff is going.

Haven't seen anything on social media for the DOBO/AC openings.

I would really narrow in on the 2021 class now. We will have 4 (Kobi,Kauk,Roberts,Kratholm) leaving + the one scholarship from this year. So at least 4 new players need to be brought in for 2021.

The Asst coach and doBo are probably identified. Wait to put them on the payroll when things open and save some money.
