    If we wanted a stretch big man.

    Looking at UNLV, Nevada and the Pac-12







  • https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/matt-mooney-1.html

    Oh yes. Absolutely would. Maybe my favorite so far. Definitely top two with Woods.



  • @Kcmatt7

    Mooney has big time attention. Michigan, UConn, Texas Tech, Oregon, Creighton, Indiana, Iowa St, TCU among others

    And it looks like he’s already picked out his visit spots. KU might be involved too late if they did reach out



  • Kcmatt7 said:

    WOULD TAKE.

    I think I mentioned him before. KU offered out of HS.



  • Kcmatt7 said:

    WOULD TAKE FO SHO.

    Could be a great fit given that he played for Dooles already for 3 years.

    Agree. Not much of a shot. Also someone with that kind of interest isn’t coming to be in a deep guard rotation.





  • @BeddieKU23 If it isn’t too late, KU needs to reach out. Will be a good get for whoever does land him. Plays at both ends of the floor.





  • https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/players/trey-porter-1.html

    Would take if we weren’t so stacked in the post already.

    meh

    OU nabbed him to run point



  • Well that is the list. I like Woods and Johnson and that is about it tbh.

    Woods is visiting Ohio St this weekend. I don’t see him leaving without committing.

    Johnson is interested in Florida. There might be some movement there



  • So basically I don’t want a grad transfer lol. Not if these are the choices at least.



  • @BeddieKU23

    I understand there might be a few more players reclassifying from 2019 to 2018. Any chance there is a potential diamond in the rough among them?



  • Will be interesting to see if any strong KU targets do that.



  • @BShark I’m really holding out hope for Stanley. There were rumors in the winter but there hasn’t been a lot since. But when these things happen, they tend to happen quickly, like Bagley last year. Haven’t heard anyone else really considering it.



  • @JayHawkFanToo

    Definitely could happen. Although the ones that reclassify tend to be highly ranked and are not going to be under the radar



  • Lots of weekend action

    Davion Mitchell PG transfer from Auburn to Baylor. Sit 1 to play 3. He’s good.

    Tarin Smith grad transfer from Duquesne to Uconn.

    Former KU target Mark Smith transfers to Missouri. Eww

    Anthony Mack from Wyoming to Miami. Sit 1 to play 3

    Houston Baptist transfer David Caraher to St Johns. Was highly sought after.

    Ibi Watson transferring from Michigan.



  • Not really seeing where KU has reached out to anyone.

    Me either. I don’t know what to think of that. Seems they really want to wait out this Romeo deal before figuring it out. And to be honest nothing that’s been available has really been a fit or the type of player that can move the needle for this team.

    I think the FGCU player would be a top 4 rotation guard for us.

    That said usually if the staff doesn’t feel great about a recruitment we will see things where KU is involved with other recruits or transfer targets. So at the very least I would say the staff thinks they have a good shot at Romeo.



  • @BShark That’s the way my crimson and blue tinted glasses read the tea leaves as well. Nothing from Romeo, but the staff isn’t bracing for a whiff either. Either they are happy with what’s already in the fold or they are confident on Romeo signing (or both).



  • Wonder if the Langford’s haven’t told the coaches yet. I don’t see Indiana or Vanderbilt active either with 2 spots open.



  • Kcmatt7 said:

    Vandy has been active. They are after Matthew Moyer- a transfer from Syracuse. I have seen them interested in a few others as well.

    Indiana has kicked the tires on some grad transfers. They want Matt Mooney from South Dakota who made it official he was leaving them.



  • @BeddieKU23 I kind of feel with Vandy being as active s they have been I think they have just got the feel that their chances for Romeo has dwindled, and now in on some others. - I have seen in some other places how they have cooled we shall see - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Yurtseven signs with Georgetown



  • @BeddieKU23 I didn’t think he wasn’t going to play pro overseas. I would have taken, no doubt.



  • @BeddieKU23

    I thought Vandy was over the schoolie limit but I have noit checked recently.

    If Langford comes to KU then the team is pretty much complete for next season. If he goes elsewhere, the wait might end up hurting KU some since it might have to pass on other prospects while waiting for him. Even without Langford, the team will be very good and we all know that Coach Self is known for pulling last minute surprises; perhaps someone that will reclassify that we don’t know.



  • @JayHawkFanToo Two open spots

    Vandy cut some weight to make room. They are 2 under waiting the Romeo thing out. Active for transfers including Matthew Moyer who they may get anyway but he’ll have to sit. It looks like they want at least 1 player for this upcoming year.

    Honestly I don’t think there has been anyone available that we’ve really missed out on. I think there will be more transfers coming up when kids finish their academic years so I’d imagine a few others (maybe even better options arise). I’ve been less then impressed with what’s out there so far and you see a ton of programs reaching for some kids that played at smaller schools. Your not seeing the Malik Newman/Lawson types (while rare anyway), those are the caliber of players KU is after I would think.

    Baylor actually nabbed one of the better players available but not at a position of need (PG), Davion Mitchell from Auburn (2017 #59 recruit).



  • I like being in a spot to be picky.

    Zach Johnson would be great for our golf team.



  • @BeddieKU23 Anthony Tarke intrigues me. Kid basically only played basketball his SR year of HS so he was well under the radar. Literally a 1 star recruit on ESPN. He crushed it at NJIT though. Bit of a volume shooter and needs to work on his trey but as a sit one to play two I feel he has a lot of value and could easily be a rotation level guy at a major program. The extra year off for further development will help.

    However he doesn’t solve anything for next year obviously so I’m not sure he is worth taking with the 19 class being so good and KU having good options.



  • Kcmatt7 said:

    Yep, it’s nice lol.

    The FGCU kid is the only grad transfer I would want.

    We’d all like for the 13th scholarship added to be a rotation level guy because Agbaji probably won’t be ready (staff seems high on him though) and Cunliffe looks like a scrub. But it will still be a very deep and talented roster regardless.



  • Kcmatt7 said:

    @BeddieKU23 I didn’t think he wasn’t going to play pro overseas. I would have taken, no doubt.

    I also thought he wasn’t returning to the states. Out of HS he turned down a big deal to come to NC St. I guess there wasn’t any big offers for him this time



  • Kameron McGusty to Miami. Former Oklahoma guard



  • Another Frank Martin casualty. David Beatty granted release



  • Transfer list approaching 500



  • BeddieKU23 said:

    I thought KU was giving him one more year… lol



  • @BeddieKU23

    I believe there were over 700 last season so I think we will have close to 800 this time around.



  • @JayHawkFanToo

    I think that’s probably an accurate number. I don’t see the numbers slowing down anytime soon



  • Oklahoma doubles up on the grad transfer route taking Aaron Calixte, from Maine.



  • The grad transfer number is probably two thirds done right now. Since there are 250 or so names that will pop up out there still, I anticipate a few more big names hitting the market. Once the draft market is set, then the transfer market will settle. Right now, Big 12 overall and KU in particular look good. I think KU is in good shape either way (with Langford) since Agbaji continues to climb.

    He was ranked in the 300s a few months ago, but is more likely borderline top 100 now. He’s not Romeo Langford, obviously, but he’s not exactly a consolation prize, either. He will likely be a very good three or four year contributor in either scenario. His improvement over the last 14-18 months is amazing. If he had gone to prep school rather than college, he would be a very sought after recruit this time next year. We were lucky to be able to grab him when we did.



  • Matt Mooney- high scoring South Dakota guard has Texas Tech in his top 5

    DeSean Murray has interest from Baylor & Maryland. Could follow his fellow teammate who committed to Baylor this week after 1 year at Auburn

    Joe Cremo- is visiting Texas this weekend. Visited Creighton last week
