I know things are still fresh and raw, but these things can happen quickly so let's keep track of any roster moves in or out in this thread. Technically I gave it a day since it is after midnight. I will also try to keep track of any current players that confirm they are staying. These days you pretty much have to re-recruit every player on your roster every single off season, so let's see how we do. I am hoping that we don't see a lot of movement, but I know that is not necessarily realistic. I will try my best to edit this post as things develop and keep it updated. I will reserve this first post for official moves and announcements. I am sure the rest of the thread will be full of opinions and speculation so have at it!

Was Henderson still a walk-on or was he given a scholarship at the end? Basically wanting to know how many scholarships will we have available?

To the best of my knowledge he was still a walk on. If Jarren is done that would leave us with two open at the moment.

At the moment, just 1 right? I think he was a walk-on, and we have Foster coming in. Not sure what will happen with McAlister, but that would open up another.
We need a big, not Wheeler I hope, A shooter, and would love to see another combo guard, that mainly plays point, depending on other developments.

I may be presumptuous, but I can't see Banks returning.
 
I see Banks and McAlister as natural openings to make space for new talent. If we lose anyone else it’s to the darn NIL poaching.

Unless there are other defections I do not see his playing time increasing that much. What do I know?

He may transfer and light it up, or come back for his last year and light it up. On come back and play the same role.

Out of curiosity. How much did it take to get Ward over to ISU to ride the pine for most of the year?

All of our starters coming back are all getting major minutes next year. Is it better to play on a team and take money for fewer minutes, or come back, make a little dough, and make another run?

If all come back next year, we are for sure a formidable foe
 
One of the biggest issues with NIL offers is the basketball coaches at the schools have to be involved, behind the scenes, on the player's they want. Based on Ace being linked to Maryland and Deloach at FSU, the coach has to know and want them on their roster. Am I missing something?
