We need a lead guard badly, but if the plan turns out to be cobbling together a backcourt with a couple new combo guards while waiting for Curbelo, I'm OK with that.


Agree fully but if CMA could get the number 17 juco kid who he was previously recruiting for next season who has 2 years left that would be fantastic. That way there would even be less pressure on AC on day 1, but still good minutes to play as a freshman. Boy have I become greedy these last 48 hours.

Neither of those kids look like lead guards. The first kid shot 35% from the field. Neither had impressive stats at low majors. If the staff disagrees and recruits them I’ll give them the benefit of doubt for a year.

RMN, LJSA, Gman -

the bottom line from all this discussion about staff possibilities (which I leave to those of you with obvious greater understanding of staff needs than I have) it surely puts into perspective how handicapped we were until this week - I am surprised we had as many decent players as we did!
one blessing when you have such a limited 2015-19 recruiting staff - much easier to improve upon!

I know we are all excited and anticipating and we might just be pleasantly surprised! We might not have to wait for a rebuild - next year's team could (I know, no guarantees, we shall see) be as successful as this year's team that was supposed to be top 3 BE.
I am enthused about what has occurred - and the newly found buzz, enthusiasm on this board.
Why we have come alive!!!
(What's the buzz tell me what's a happening - the Wiz)

I know. I was lumping them into the combo guard category.

Javion Hamlet , #17 of Top 100 JUCO, is the kid’s name, big rangy PG would be a great get, and Javon Franklin, also on CMAs radar at Arkansas, and ranked #22, a 6’7” PF, looks interesting as well.

Great news, thanks. By all accounts a great recruiter and will be a head coach somewhere down the line.

Yes, TJ deciding to go ahead and come along instead of taking a mid-major or D2 head coaching job is great news. He's a real asset. TJ is the guy behind all the JUCO recruiting success that CMA has had. I don't know if there's a coach in the country that has more JUCO connections than TJ, he usually gets who he wants more times than not from the JUCO ranks.

Also, I was reading earlier in the thread guys were trying to figure out his relationship to Coach Anderson. TJ is CMA's nephew. He's been with Coach Anderson since UAB when he started out as a video coordinator. TJ has worked his way up, there's been no nepotism there. He's going to be a head coach somewhere sooner than later.

Any chance we reach out to Mack again?

TJ Cleveland is following him on twitter, but don't know when that started Paultz seems to think he's going elsewhere, so I'll trust him.
