Iím not a talent scout, just an Ole ball coach. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder when it comes to most players. No brainers like Aíja Wilson, Alaina Coates, Tiffany Mitchell, Allisha Gray....every body can spot those.

Whalen is a fine shooter for sure. Solid as a player. But if she comes and sits out, how many opposing coaches use her against you with Haley Jones and all of the other more athletic, talented wings that we are recruiting? I just donít know what type of impact she makes on this team two years from now.

Now, Rellah Boothe...if she transfers in, I donít really care how much negative recruiting other coaches use...she is a bonifide stud.

But if Dawn wants her, Iím all in. She is a definite upgrade to Cliney and Patrick, although Cliney will be gone by the time Whalen is eligible.

I believe it's a clot and can be serious; I hope she gets better soon.

Two problems with that....1) Bell is 2019 and likely wonít decide Until the fall. Transfers usually decide last spring so they can enroll in summer school. 2) Boothe is a post, Bell is a wing. I donít understand the either or.

Also with regards to Boothe being a head case....once a student athlete decides to transfer and enroll at their second school, they either get their act together or they drop out. Once you transfer, you really lose all power. You have to do it the way the head coach wants it done...because, are you going to transfer and sit out another year? Also, who takes somebody that transfers twice, unless itís as a Grad transfer.

If Dawn wants Boothe, you should want Boothe. She is a stud. Now, would I rather have Joyner Holmes? Absolutely.

Agree 100% on Joyner Holmes... Karen Aston has no idea how to use her.. Joyner made tremendous mistake going to Texas... I said it when she committed

Like it or not, that’s what Dawn Staley’s program is. Sign the top in state players, fill in the roster by recruiting bench players and major transfers. She has yet to sign an elite HS player outside the Carolinas other than the PG position.

Nobody loves Dawn or appreciates what she has done more than me, but recruiting outside of SC and Charlotte has been a major issue. Yes, she signed Cuevas from NY, Ty Harris from Indiana and Destanni He Derain from FLA...all elite HS recruits. All of them are PGs. No bigtime post from out of state, no bigtime wing other than Tiff Mitchell, who was from Charlotte. And I’m not counting K. Bone.

I don’t know what the issue is, but there is no excuse to not be recruiting at a high level nationally at this point. Yet it continues to hamstring the roster. Other than Geno, Dawn is the most high profile coach in WBB. Yet Baylor, Texas, Tennessee, Louisville, FSU and others are beating us on players.

If Carolina has a big 2019 recruiting haul, it will be the first time Dawn has successfully recruited Nationally.

Every All Star game is about players showcasing their skills by going one on one. Practices are a joke.

Also...there is room to take two transfers and then sign 4 HS recruits in the fall. I doubt Tea Cooper plays more than one season. Also, Cuevas may not be back after all. I know itís spring break, but she was not on the neck last night. Both Cooper and Spann were with the team.

We can, and do, play multiple point guards at a time. I'm not sure Dawn will do it, but I'd love to see us press and run next season with the backcourt we will have if BCM plays her senior year.

One reason that we were not better (similar to the Men's team) this year was a shortage of PGs. Tyasha was good, but without BCM, we had no back-up at the position so we could rest Tyasha. Also, there were times when a second PG would have helped to beat the oppponent's pressure D. Dawn is used to having multiple PGs and we were limited without it.

Destanni gives us a second option at PG and BCM would give us a third. That would allow us to play two PGs at one time and to keep everyone rested.

Tea Cooper will help here also. I think Tea will have a break-out scorer. We need a go-to scorer that is not shy to fill it up. We have some this year (in addition to Wilson) but they seem tentative to shoot it at times.

Let me see:
1 National Championship, 2 final 4s, 4 #1 seeds, 4 Sec title, 4 SEC tourney titles... With a record like that who cares where the players come from... She is getting good enough players to win championships... Your harsh critique is a bit jaundiced... It is factually correct but functionally irrelevant... She will continue to recruit champions and win.. I won't lose any sleep squabbling about where the players are from
