I feel much better about PG for next year. We have the grad transfer coming in. He should be able to help. Moss could possibly be a good PG and I think Gravett should improve. If we get Lawson, I think he might be a possibility at PG. We are in much better shape than we were last year.

The grad transfer is a stopgap for a short term fix. He doesn't need to be a scorer just someone who can play defense and distribute the ball is all that's needed. As for the long term fix you may not be high on Moss but he definitely could be that long term fix if he pans out. I'd consider that doing something to fix the issue, you may not agree with the players taken but the issue is certainly being addressed in this class already.

Well I don’t think you can argue that if we got those that Frank wouldn’t have the most talent we’ve ever had. We’ve lost Rah (who could’ve helped), Beatty and Gueye (who didn’t adjust to college ball) and Holden who was hurt. We’d be adding 2 top 100 players in Burns and Lawson, Moss who went to a top prep school, Cousinard who’s drawn comparisons to Sin. We could possibly add Bowen at some point, to go along with Silva, Kotsar, Minaya, Gravett. While PG play might still be a concern we would arguably have the best team that Frank’s ever had at SC. I still have to see Frank reel in those two guys to believe it and the NCAA clear Bowen but if all of that comes to fruition we are most definitely a Big Dance team.

Tell it like it is brother!!! Yeah I to doubt Frank when it comes to closing the deal on prime recruits.. But the man is overdue to have some fortune on the recruiting trial.. I think Couisinard will be as big a steal as Miniyah... I love Burns toughness in the paint.. Lawson looks like the real deal.. Getting both will be a big freaking deal

I get the feeling Bowen will be with us.. At some point even the NCAA has to have enough shame to do a decent thing

Agreed. I think they'll hope that he signs with an agent early to take it out of their hands but in the last 24 hours they'll make a ruling and we land him for the 18-19 season and maybe 1 more.

It doesn’t sound like Bowen wants to play Europe ball or in the G League so I’m with y’all I think he comes back but To hell with the NCAA

Hannibal, Campbell, Gary, Felton and Lawson go a long way to fixing our guard play.

I hope some of you understand that Bowen could be ruled ineligible to play college basketball.

He has scheduled an OV at Carolina this coming week. There are only 2 CB, and both are Gamecocks. The piece I read said he may reclassify to 2018. Perhaps that has to do with whether we get Burns or not.

Surely Frank would take both!!! If he still wants Jelik Felton, we can arrange for Felton to pay his way for a year(wink wink)

Looks like we’re getting Felton but not getting Burns. So Lawson reclassifying to 2018 would work.

Actually if Bowen decides to stay in the draft all 3 would work out.

Yep that's true.. I just don't see Bowen staying in the draft. He won't be drafted.. Giving himself time to hear from the Shysters at Ncaa makes sense.. Europe and the G League will still be there.. But it is his choice
