Assuming Frank was being honest with the reporter, the only thing I can deduce is that, if he signs someone, either Blanton will come off a basketball scholarship and go on a medical one, or someone will not be on scholarship next year. They will be on the team, but not on a scholarship. If there is another possibility, I'd like to hear about it.
The way I interpret that is Frank and the players in question waiting for the semester to end before deciding.

Did you see the interview? I saw it on YouTube. Search "Frank Martin Rock Hill". That is how I found it. My interpretation was that Frank said no one is leaving. But I might have misunderstood.

I saw the end of the year wrap up interview he gave after being out of the country for a bit and during that he said he had some guys that he wasn't sure would be back. I haven't seen interviews since that point. I've also heard 1-2 players aren't likely to be back but I don't have any names.

Sounds like just from your posts, that that is exactly what he told the reporters. Or did you type your paraphrase in error? I guess you're telling us that CFM told the reporters specifically that he knows for a fact that NO ONE is leaving the program???

My interpretation was that Frank had not decided yet if someone else was leaving.

What I saw was that he would make room if we got a couple more guys. So the speculation began who would lose their scholly. One would surprise some folks, the other would not. I don't know who they are. Some thought it might be Keita.

He didn't deny it. He said he didn't know of anyone that was leaving as of this moment, but he was unhappy with a couple of guys.

--at least that is what he said in the presser. didn't realize you were talking about Rock Hill. I don't think anything has changed though. They are going full steam on these two guys and they obviously know what the rules are so there will be players leaving.

Hopefully we put on the full court press and convince Alstork this is the place for him. This could potentially be a big time addition to next years roster.

Yep, he'd be a huge addition to the roster.

ESPN has an article up on the biggest guys considering whether to jump to NBA or return to school, and also includes discussion of guys who are eligible for a graduate transfer. Thought this was interesting:

16. Mark Alstork, Wright State Raiders (graduate): Alstork is in the midst of a visit binge, checking out Pittsburgh, Georgetown, Illinois, South Carolina, LSU and Louisville in a two-week span. Each school needs him badly, with South Carolina and Louisville the most noteworthy destinations in terms of the national picture.

Thought that last sentence was pretty cool, and man, I hope we can pull this guy in. Shows you have fast perception can change with a good March -- considered a more "noteworthy" destination than Gtown, Pitt, Illinois, and LSU, at least for the next year.

On his unofficial at Louisville today. Sucks they're getting the last crack at him. Hopefully Frank made a lasting impression.

I'm not sure if distance is a factor in his decision if it does Louisville may have the edge over us.

Latest intel from TBS says it's us or Louisville. Don't know for sure. He's a senior and wants all the minutes he can get hoping to play in the NBA. Louisville has a couple of guys coming back that may reduce his minutes. That is in our favor. Too close to call.

According to the article above, L-ville has a player with a similar skill set that is straddling the NBA fence. Might be tough to get Alstork if he falls on the NBA side - if he comes back, we should get Alstork. Immediate PT at a position of need.
