2024-25 Roster Breakdown & Wishlist

Unread post by HurricaneYosef » Mon Mar 25, 2024 11:35 am

Coming off the best season in program history, this is a HUGE off season for the black and gold. The portal era is in full effect as we have already seen, let's take a look at our roster as of right now plus look back at the wishlist put together in the off season.

2024-25 ROSTER BREAKDOWN:
C - Luke Wilson
G - Myles Tate
G - Luke Ledford (WO)

G- Jackson Threadgill - TRANSFER ADDITION
G - Jamil Muttilib - TRANSFER ADDITION

F - Michael Marcus, Jr. - INCOMING FRESHMAN
G - Anthony Alston - INCOMING FRESHMAN
F - Jerquarius Stanback - INCOMING FRESHMAN
G - Cameron O'Kelly - INCOMING FRESHMAN
G - Jason Clarke Jr - INCOMING FRESHMAN


C - Justin Abson - TRANSFER PORTAL
G - Etienne Strothers - TRANSFER PORTAL -> Hampton
F - Tre'Von Spillers - TRANSFER PORTAL -> Wake Forest
F - Joshua Hayes - TRANSFER PORTAL
G - Jordan Marsh - TRANSFER PORTAL -> UNC Asheville
G - Christopher Mantis - TRANSFER PORTAL
G - Xavion Brown - TRANSFER PORTAL -> Dallas Baptist (D2)
G - Terence Harcum - TRANSFER PORTAL -> Murray State


F - Donovan Gregory - GRADUATED, Zero Eligibility
F - CJ Huntley - GRADUATED, 1 Year of eligibility being left on table


Guards - 4 Forwards - 2 Centers - 1

6 SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE

24/25 WISHLIST:
1. A roster


23/24 WISHLIST RESULTS:
1. Big Time guard addition via the transfer portal. - Myles Tate looks to be our guy for this to happen. Had an injury and not much success at Butler, maybe he can settle in for us - I'd say Myles hit plenty of big shots for us this year and proved his value to our team
2. Speaking of Offense, wish #2 is significant improvement to our offensive scheme. - This is the biggest thing i'm looking for this season. We are not finishing top 2 in the sun belt if we are running the same offense we have been the last few years This year according to kenpom we had an Offensive Efficiency of 108.3 which was good for 138th in the country. The previous year it was 101.2 which was good for 255th. I'd say that the eye test and the data show improvements offensively
3. Free Throw Improvements. We can't be dead last in the conference again plain and simple. Well we werent last, we jumped up to 11th in the conference at a 68% clip. By a technicality we imporved
4. Better Early season tournament - Wouldnt consider the Fort Myers tip off an upgrade over what weve had in years past, but a good location and competition at least - I'd say the competition (specifically the UNCW game) really was the springboard to our success this year
5. Roster / Staff Cohesion - vibes seem to be great heading into the season - vibes were great all year. No staff departures or mid year transfers / players dismissed from team mid season like had occurred in years past
6. Larger Media / Social Media presence - there has been an uptick in pre season content this year, love to see it
7. High Major Transfer Addition - still waiting for the year we land one. Crowley was a stud last yr for USM, Bickerstaff for JMU is proving major as they compete with #4 Michigan St tonight - Didn't get a "HM guy" but Tate and Spillers were HIGH QUALITY additions, players that helped us win

Go after Edwards and Bickerstaff. Since they couldn’t beat us, they should join us.

My worst nightmare is Kerns leaving taking Abson, Spillers and Huntley to any team. With those 3, you’re competitive immediately.

If he stays, he’s proven he can recruit the portal with underrated guys. Have to trust it.

Well we’re halfway thru this nightmare scenario. Now just to see if Kerns is out the door too.

We've got 2 more commits not on the list.
Stanbeck and another Point Guard, forgot his name.
Which means we don't have many scholarships open...

Update it with X. He gone.

I don't see why Kerns would return at this point.

Tate Harcum and Wilson only guys left.

No offense to the creator of this thread and I'm sure you will understand but to even discuss next year rosters is completely pointless.

It is deflating but the good news is there are a lot of good JUCO players and D1 portal players out there to possibly get. We probably need to worry about if our coach is even returning before we think about the roster though. If Kerns is coming back then an extension and raise will be announced soon I would think.
