If he comes here, then the team will be fairly balanced in terms of guys at different positions, which is definitely a good thing. Hopefully these guys can provide quality depth (and a surprise or two in terms of production in the post).
If Smith comes here, would that mean the other bigs that have been discussed likely aren’t coming, or is there still another scholarship left now that Scott is transferring? Or with Scott’s transfer, do we now go after another wing/guard instead? Curious who coaches would be going after at this point.
4th in individual block percentage last season. Laron is the shortest player in the top 10, which speaks to his athleticism and skill. When Laron was on the floor he blocked 1/8th of the opponent shots taken.
While I have heard of Bethune Cookman, I knew nothing about it, so I went to Wikipedia. My first question is when you go to college in Daytona Beach, what do you do for spring break? Secondly, do you think we can get their band to transfer in?
The Marching Wildcats are a 300+ member unit that includes five drum majors traditionally known as the “The Five Horsemen”, instrumentalists, the Sophisticat Flag Corps and the 14 Karat Gold dancers. Known as “The Pride,” the band is under the direction of a Bethune-Cookman alumnus and former Marching Wildcat, Donovan V. Wells. The Marching Wildcats is one of the largest collegiate marching bands in the country.

Looked to me that he had a heck of a wingspan too.
The only thing that worries me about our chances to get him is that this is his only time in his life that HMs could potentially come after him because he’s a big man with decent stats and will only tie up a roster spot for a year. That being said, I still think our chances with him are good and I hope we land him while he is here on his visit.
