Re: Ty Boswell

Yup. But I think none can be signed until after July 1st, and the first window after that is the November signing period.

I do think that verbal commits are OK until then, but not sure.

Not sure I see the need for another PG, even a good one like Poyser. Fatts will be a soph, and Dowtin has already proven he can play the point pretty well when needed. Maybe as insurance? Otherwise another 4 year PG could be helpful in a couple of years. I would think Poyser would only come here if ...
