Help on the way for 19/20?
« on: April 24, 2019, 10:48:03 AM »
Marquette is meeting today with potential transfers Alihan Demir (6-9 PF, 14.8 ppg and 6.4 rpg at Drexel) and Akwasi Yeboah (6-6 SF, 16.7 ppg and 7.7 rpg at Stony Brook). Both would be immediately eligible to play next season.  #mubb

You can really talk yourself into these guys watching highlight clips.

I have a couple of snarky comments, but I will save them in case he does transfer to MU.       It would be difficult to refuse an immediately eligible 6'9 player.

Neither of their stat lines really make me believe they would be anything more than 7-8th man off the bench. Not moving the needle at all. That being said, we need some PF bodies, so...I guess.

I agree with Doc.

We need to tell guys like this, "Thanks but no thanks" and see if we can get a couple of the 2019ers that Duke, UNC and Kentucky landed to back out of their commitments and join our blueblood program instead.

This Yeboah guy looks interesting.  Looks very athletic and a good rebounder.  Looks to be very consistent from gamelogs, but performed well against the better competition stony brook played.  He'd be my preference of the two.

I would take a chance on the Demir cat too, but I wouldn't expect a ton.  He looks pretty slow footed.  This team is going to be geared to run and gun, and I don't really think adding a slowfooted 4 is going to help much.
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

Per Goodman, Yeboah has already visited Rutgers, and is heading to SMU and TCU this week.  Also talking to Marquette, Clemson and Arkansas.

Not sure about Demir but Yeboah looks like he could be a good fit. Leading scorer and rebounder for a pretty good Stony Brook team. Good size. Looks to be athletic.

Demir might be a good depth piece but can't see him contributing major minutes.

Well good for depth but I don't see much BE ready play there.

Here are some Yeboah highlights.  Definitely think this guy is worth chasing.

We need to be careful here...remember how excited everyone was when they landed Chartouny?? Well his struggles at the BE level are well documented. Both of these kids played at levels lower than Chartouny did. Bodies is all they would be..not impactful by any stretch.

But the fact is they need bodies.  I'm not comfortable with the number of experienced players coming back right now.  If Symir reclassifies, I would be all for that instead of picking up one of these guys.

I don't think anyone here is rushing to anoint these guys our best players...

Yeboah put up 22/12 and 21/6 in back to back games @ Providence and @ Rutgers his sophomore season.  Also 15/6 and 15/3 against Michigan State and Maryland that year.

Stony Brook didn't play many high majors this season.  Just @ South Carolina, he went off for 24/11.  Other notable teams included 19/5 @ Rhode Island and 19/3 @ South Florida.

You're worried about experienced players but would rather have a high school kid move on a year early to join the team? Scratching my head over here..

Yes we need depth.  Right now two of the 10 roster guys are Ike and Akoono.  To me that means we have eight guys right now.

I wouldn't expect either to be in our top 5 players next season. Both could give us valuable production off the bench and fill some needs. I'd take one or both.

So I really have to describe why I would prefer a top 50 freshman prospect to a couple guys who played in the America East?

How many college basketball teams have 12 impact players?  It’s a 1-year player and the team needs depth.
