Bucks plan to add a big man. The hope was for 5 star center Efton Reid, who was supposed to announce yesterday. However, he didn't, and while no one knows what is going on with him, teams like LSU are in the mix, which makes me think him going to OSU is doubtful.

Heard two names the Bucks are looking at - Depaul sophmore center Nick Ongenda and Indiana senior Joey Brunk. Brunk actually started his career with Holtmann at Butler. Neither is going to move the needle besides offering some depth at center, which is certainly a need.

UW landed a point guard transfer yesterday. Came from Wake. Numbers aren't good, but looks like a thicker kid at 6-3. Seems the staff liked him out of HS.

At worst, he's a veteran hand who could play 2-3 spots in a pinch. UW now has the ability to field a reasonable starting lineup of players who have at least a year in a college program. I still could see the transfer not getting a bigger role, but he'd at least make the freshmen work, in that case. 

UW has one more spot and could use a big for extra muscle insurance. Some smoke around Penn State's former starting center, but we'll see. He wouldn't be a great offensive fit, but bulk, defense and rebounding is nice.

Did he opt out this year?  I assumed he had just graduated...or started collecting social security

Michigan did pretty ok with their transfer guard from Wake last year.

Right, but they just kinda pushed out a guard (Anderson) to make room for all the new ones coming in.

This one doesn't make sense to me. They need a big guy more than anything.

They didn’t push out Anderson. He wanted a bigger role and they couldn’t give it to him. Plus, he wouldn’t have counted against the scholarship limit anyway.

They wanted a guy who has played some level of college point guard since the only other options are true freshmen. And they still have room for that big.

The Nebraska basketball program added more size to its highly-rated recruiting class with the signing of Oleg Kojenets (pronounced Oh-leg Co-yah-nets) to a National Letter-of-Intent on Wednesday, April 14.

Kojenets, a 7-foot, 220-pound forward from Kaunas, Lithuania, is a three-star recruit by both 247Sports and Rivals and was ranked in the top-100 nationally by 247Sports prior to his senior season. He is currently ranked among the top-200 players nationally, and the No. 25 center nationally, in the 247Sports Composite.


Nebraska men's basketball added its second top-100 transfer of the spring on Monday, as Keon Edwards announced that he will join the Huskers for the 2021-22 season. Edwards, a 6-foot-7, 185-pound forward from Pasadena, Texas, comes to Nebraska after the spending the 2020-21 season at DePaul University and will have four years of eligibility beginning next fall.

Well, they kinda did, by telling him he wasn't getting a bigger role and to look elsewhere.

I mean, there's a two-pronged thing there. 1. It seems like it would be bad for Gard to lie to the kid, especially if this is his aim. 2. Anderson is smart. He knows the play. If I do, he does.

The fact is, he's not good enough to have a starting role on a Big Ten team. The staff is worried about his knees, for good reason, and even last year, we saw that he was more complementary than primary guy and had some moments when he got overwhelmed. Even last year was slightly stretching his ability. He was a great No. 4 guard in the Big Ten, and a high-floor No. 3 guard who wasn't going to make that many plays. 

I don't know if the new kid is gonna be as good as Anderson was, but he has the ability to be better and the possibility to be a 30-MPG guy, which Trevor didn't. I'm sure at the start Gard was honest and said we need another point guard type. With the talent coming in, that might make Anderson a fifth guard, and if he didn't want that possibility, I'm happy he'll go to a spot where he can get it. (Some of this also falls on a set of pandemic-related things. If Bowman comes in last year, they can probably go without a transfer point. And if there's no pandemic, Brad can't come back)
