Again, may not be totally up-to-date as who knows what's going on at UNCW (poor bastards)...but that would be the CAA incoming class (plus VCU of course). Obvious questions are who redshirts at Mason (that's a LOT of incoming players), is Rahsanti Harris as dim as people say (well, he DID choose GSU :lol: ), and how in the heck did Delaware get so many good players? Top 6 Freshman look like
Rashanti Harris-GSU
Devon Saddler-Delaware
Darius Theus-VCU...an 89 according to the worldwide leader in sports
Sherrod Wright-George Mason
Johnnie Williams-George Mason
Isaiah Philmore-Towson
 
my biggest question is how Georgia St beat out some of the best programs in the country for a 4 star center. Anxious to see Harris vs Sanders in 2010.

Answer: Atlanta. And the promise of dominating the league, most likely leaving early with great exposure for the NBA

truth. he has a really good chance of being a big fish if he stays a couple years.
 
My understanding is his grades were questionable and other schools backed off of him. Has he qualified yet?
 
My bad...how could I forget Kostadin Marchlevski? :lol:

He looks like a biggun'
One thing that struck me was that a lot of these kids have Renardo Dixon body types. I mean Matt Wilson of UNCW (6'11" and 210 pounds).....beanpole central. I can see the tipoff between him and KP...it'll be like Rocky IV...."I must break you"
 
ive already forgotten the going ons of last season...did KP do the tipoffs or Sanders?
 
thought so. HBMs Rocky IV line, while funny, threw me off for a second.

I like "Dinka," he'll fit in well with what Coen does because he can shoot the ball extremely well, and played in a very similar system to Coen's Flex. URI and Drexel both offered him.

The other "big" get for us was Canada's Alwayne Bigby(6'5 SG/SF), who will contribute right away. Ask DB-he told AG to recruit this kid. An excellent defender who can lead the break pretty well. The only part of his game that will need work is his shooting. Think Chase Allen lite.

The other two are pretty big unknowns. Joel Smith is a 6'4 guard out of Texas. Word is he had a nice senior season and coen thinks he got a steal on this kid. He was lightly recruited, but with Coach Coen's history of finding "unknown" talent(Craig Smith, Tyrese Rice, Matt Janning) I wouldn't be shocked if Smith can contribute. We also signed Jonathan Lee as a backup PG. A really smart kid he had Ivy's and Patriot league teams looking at him. I think he's a project for Coen and the staff as they already seem really set at the PG position(Allen BB and probably Bigby can play the point as well).
 
GSU beat everyone on Harris because he has a past relationship w Barnes from when he was at Mississippi.
