Default 2017 - Markel Crawford (Grad Transfer MBB)

6'5 guard out of Memphis is another guy we're going after. More of a slasher than a perimeter player. Averaged 12.8 ppg and 4.4 rpg to go along with 1.4 spg. He would give us some much needed length at the guard spot. Probably a more realistic get than Cameron Johnson but with PJ leaving I wouldn't be surprised if we took both if the opportunity arose.

Didn't he present a problem for us when we played them?

How did you learn we are after him?

TBS put up a quick note stating we were involved with him. Not sure what our odds are anything more than Martin is in contact and trying to get Crawford in a Gamecock uniform next year. With PJ gone we're going to be extremely active in the transfer market and if the right 2 come available we would take 2 of them. Had PJ come back we'd still look for a transfer but the max number would have been 1.

Crawford and Johnson would create the same scenario that we had with out Ladies this year. We lost some talent including our long-time team leader (Tiffany) but actually improved the team overall by adding a couple of key transfers in Gray and Davis, plus some talented Freshwomen in Tyasha and KeKe.

Crawford would negate Dozier in terms of slashing/scoring, although we would need Rah and Holden to take up the slack from losing Dozier's ballhandling. Johnson is not exactly an equal replacement for Sin, but the combination of him and Holden would do it - Johnson brings more size to the 3 position and Holden can be the go-to guy at crunch time that can score or dish. Then you have some nice incoming size to go with last year's youthful front line, plus Beatty at the #2. We lose four solid players including two NBA guys, and could still have more top to bottom talent.

Almost like a UK or Duke - just reload, baby.

To me, playing the transfer market to fill gaps feels less like reloading and more like scrambling. When more in state high school blue chips start staying home instead of heading one state North (thank you Sin and PJ), it'll feel more like reloading. I'm hopeful the Final Four run will help that, beginning with next year's class.

What's the difference in going after grad transfers as opposed to one and done's?

Grad transfers are better IMO. They have an experience and maturity edge, already playing college ball for three years or so. Also, you can plan better - highly rated players might or might not stick around - we kept thinking that Sin would leave early, but the tendinitis kept him around. PJ could have stuck around anywhere from 1 to 4 years. Grads are usually one year, in rare cases two.

If we are "scrambling" in going after Crawford, it is only because Dozier just committed to the draft. Prior to yesterday it was only a possibility, now we know that we have a need and one less scholarship tied up.

Texas? Kinda funny that we are competing with them for Crawford. When we got Dozier, some people thought Mack went to Texas to avoid competing with Dozier here. Now Dozier and Mack are gone from South Carolina and Texas, and we are fighting over the same guy to replace them.

Of course, we could wind up replacing Dozier with Mack, n ow that Mack does not have to compete with Dozier anymore. Ya neva no.....

Well Memphis (where he is from) is a stones-throw away from Oxford.

Well that's a swift kick in the balls. Was really hoping we would at least get him on campus before he made a decision. Given the proximity to Memphis it definitely makes sense for him if he wanted to stay close to home.
