Props to Stan. In the interview after the announcement Jermaine mentioned that he forged a relationship with Stan on his first visit to Kingston and each visit after (3 visits in total). Jermaine and the coach clearly knew Stan from his days as a star in the DMV.

I can't stop watching this!!! I wish we could see all the comments from Xavier fans talking crap about our program. That was the best part.

Perhaps someone who is more computer savvy than I am, can explain why a PC season ticket banner appeared super imposed over the interview with Jermaine Harris.

That's why I said in another thread that I hope we get a shot at playing Xavier in the tourney this season. Talk about obnoxious fans!


I also saw an X fan tweet to Harris "Have fun playing in the NIT".. Asshole.

I respect most teams, but I've hated Maryland since Cancun. Add Xavier to that list.

Excellent point.

I don't think I ever posted it. But I'm sure I'm not the only one who had occasional doubts momentarily fill my mind about Dan's ability to recruit each time a well known AC left. In every case those doubts quickly were cast aside within a short period of time due to the staffs continued recruiting success.

There can be no doubt that we can say with confidence at this point we can safely say Dan's recruiting success is clearly not mostly a product of a single assistant or two.

Dan has certainly found great replacements for Preston and Murray, that's for sure!

I’ve read somewhere that he’s a pretty decent basketball coach.

weird that all of the paperwork hasn't been finished. I happened to see PC's announcement of their signees.... Man do they know how to market their program. Thor and staff should hire someone with a great marketing mind like PC has done. They really build up the hype for the season ticket holder, but give the "occasional" fan a vibe that they don't want to miss out on what's going on with them. We NEED to start building that so last night is more than a hopeful and becomes consistent in terms of attendance!

I am pretty sure they are waiting for all LOIs to be in hand before making an announcement and a big Koch article.

I don’t think Jermaine was at the game last night. That was not him shown on the dance cam as suggested in a previuos post.

Is anyone nervous that he hasn’t signed? Why would he be waiting so long?

I’m confident that everything is fine and he’ll be signing by the 15th

He retweeted the Rhody opener vs UNCA with EC on there then the day before that retweeted Brendan Adams LOI announcement

So did Jermaine sign his LOI since Go Rhody came out with this today?

Just wasn't sure if anyone saw any updates from twitter, etc.

They wouldn't have done the release without his LOI.

It must mean that he signed his LOI. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but, I don't think the staff can talk about a recruit by name unless they have a signed LOI.

So this means there will be one spot left open. OK with this.

If this group is even close to what is projected, the "growing pains" associated with being a young team next season, won't last very long.

Top 25 Class, all completed in November. Best Class in the Atlantic 10. Love that we have this Top 25 Class AND still have a scholarship available for flexibility to land a transfer at mid year, or a transfer at end of year, or 5th year player, or top recruit that still could find his way to URI from the Class of 2017. Suppose some coaches get canned at end of year as usual, and a top player decides to leave - then magically here is Top 25 Class URI with a scholarship ready!!
We wanted to be with the VCUs and Dayton’s of the A10 - looks like we are getting there and then some.
