Sounds like the type of guy we could really use. Might actually be an improvement over Iverson as he is a much better three point shooter..

Class of 2013 out of Richmond, he started off at Drexel. Played seven minutes his first year and transfered to Longwood.

He's not to tall but for a 254lb man he looks more like a really big muscular dude as opposed to a flabby guy.

Here's a good Longwood highlight vid. Virtually every longwood highlight is Lane for much of the vid.

ramster there must be interest there or he wouldn't be getting a visit.

I also think we could do better, there are a LOT of players available. However not too many transfers that can play immediately.

Good players come from everywhere and the staff has done a very good job of identifying good talent and kids, so I respect their view obviously. And the fact that he is visiting Pitt shows he has impressed some at the higher level. But looking at his stats, he played for a team that was 6-24 in the Big South and lost its last 17 games. Not that familiar with the Big South but I probably wouldn't compare them to the Big 12. Looking at the games he played vs anyone of note outside the conference, his stats are not very impressive. Vs GMU 11 and 6 in a 27 pt loss. Vs Creigthon 12 and 2 in a 55 pt loss. 6 and 10 vs Ball St in a 16 pt loss. Vs Texas Tech 12 and 2 in a 31 pt loss. And vs the conference champion Winthrop 14 and 6 , 9 and 5 in 20 and 18 pt losses. Not to mention we lose our only 2 proven guys with any sort of size and very valuable guys. And though he is 6-6 and apparently bulky, he is still only 6-6. With our run this year, I would hope we could attract something a little more. If we had 4 or 5 scholarships available, I wouldn't mind it at all. But with only 1 scholarship and 2 major voids inside to fill, this doesn't appear to be a wonderful answer. Unless, someone is leaving and an extra scholly or 2 become available. But the staff knows best. Perhaps flying way under the radar.

We need an impact player....I don't think he fills the bill.....he might contribute but so will our other bigs......

He does have offensive skills, but not sure about the defense....there was a LOT of matador D being played in that video.

Like Gio just said we have at the current time only one spot to fill....make it a good one.

We need someone who's proven at our level or above. Except for Juiston...he's really good.

I disagree on immediately saying "pass" on the guy because he's 6'6". In reality, that's how tall Hassan is. If he's got long arms, he'll play up. I'd be very okay with this guy, coming in eligible immediately. Juiston is obviously Plan A, but to me this seems like a very solid Plan B.

I agree on the size comment. I think we'd all take ARD again. Plenty of bigs out there who don't play big.

We won't be replacing Hass with one player. Lane (if brought on board) and Langevine would be a part of that. So would Tertsea, if he can contribute at all on the defensive end. He's 6'10". There's more than one way to construct a lineup that can win basketball games - you don't need 6'pg, 6'3"sg, 6'6"sf, 6'8"pf, and 6'10"c. I'm not implying that you think that way rm05, but some here seem to think that. Complimenting skillsets are much more important than prioritizing height above all other factors, as some here seem to be doing by dismissing this Lane because he's listed at 6'6". Bonzie Colson played center for Notre Dame for long stretches this year at 6'5" - how'd they do?

Point taken and Colson is honestly an anomaly at that height. My wish is to find a player with a Hass skill set at 6'10 rather than 6'7. Iverson became a huge rim protector towards the end and his height had a lot to do with it. The National Championship said it all. Both teams were enormous. If we have a good season with a shorter lineup because they are complimenting like you said, then that's great and I was wrong, I just feel more comfortable with bigger forwards. The reason I didn't mention Tertsea is because hes an unknown at this point until he sets foot on the hardwood, but yes his height does help.

Guys with Hassan's skill set at 6'10" go to Kentucky. I am glad that is what you are looking for, so is every program in America, you may want to recalibrate your expectations. We are either going to get an unfinished product at that height (ie Tertsea), or someone with a blemish like a transfer or under performer (ie Kuran).

I see he only played 4 games for Drexel. Were those games he didn't play due to injury or we're they just DNPs? Just wondering about that because if it was an injury he might have got a medical redshirt.

Certainly a possibility. I didn't really research too much into it, but it does looks like he had some sort of injury at Drexel. The link below isn't the most credible source, but it does mention the possibility of petitioning for another year of eligibility when he transferred to Longwood.

Long story short, he has one year of eligibility left, possibly two if he can get a medical redshirt for his "lost" season at Drexel.

Okay agreed,

But what's wrong with holding this program to a higher (not quite kentucky) level?

I don't know the medical waiver rules, he clearly didn't reach the threshold for games played, but does it matter when you play the games? He played 12/18, 1/3, 2/8 and 2/26 that season at Drexel.

They need someone to replace KI. Lane is mentioned as a stretch 4. Would you rather have Akele or Lane at the 4? My thought is they need a better rebounder than Lane. The other possible 4 on the roster that could see playing time is Berry IMO.

Rhody needs to free up another scholarship this year. Time for Dan to sit down with Thompson.

Yes, I think you can't play in a game either after a specific date, or after a certain percentage of games have been played. It's why we were all so pissed off when Jerry Duh brought back Brian Woodward late in the year after missing most of the season instead of red-shirting him.

My understanding on a 6th year is that you are only supposed to get it if you are forced to sit out a year for circumstances out of your control. Technically per the rules, they make it sound like sitting a year due to transfer is considered circumstances you can control and not a reason to get a 6th season.

That said, I also read somewhere else that the NCAA has made exceptions to that, typically in situations where a guy first loses a year of eligibility due to sitting for transfer and then suffering the injury, since it would have been impossible for said player to know they would later lose another season due to injury. That was the route that both Ennis (Rice to Villanova and injury in grad year) and Murphy (transferred from Duke to Florida and was injured senior year) followed.

Opposite of that, I don't think anyone has found success suffering a tough injury, and then later transferring and losing another season, and then winning a 6th year of eligibility, since they willingly sat out that 2nd year.

Two points:

1) Lane doesn't seem like a slouch on the boards - didn't see a minute of Longwood basketball this year (I'd be shocked/impressed if any among us had), but he averaged 7.3 boards and had 7 games with double figures. Of course rebounding in the Big South is different than in the A10, but it doesn't seem like he'd be completely overmatched.

2) I would not be okay with the coach running Thompson off the team, nor do I ever think that would happen. If Christion decides to transfer it must be his decision, and would likely be out of a desire to see a more featured role in a lower conference. If he decides that, best of luck to him and I hope he turns into the next Jarelle Reischel. But if a kid is recruited here, does everything he's supposed to do from a work ethic / good team mate perspective, but just doesn't develop into a consistent rotation player, he should not be run off. But again, I'd be shocked if Dan ever did that to a player.

It's amazing how highly you guys rate Highschoolers as freshmen in the A10. Maybe Juiston would be better but there's a 98% chance this guy is better than any HS player we could bring in for next year. If Ln wants to come to URI I think Dan would be very unlikely to turn him down.

He is an Iverson replacement who likes to play around the 3 point line. 34% from 3, 38% year before that. In those videos he looks pretty good slashing and scoring near the hoop. Looks exactly like a Hurley type of player.

Get Lane and we suddenly have replaced one of our two losses with a guy whos likely to be a pretty much equivalent player.

No way should we want Thompson gone.
At some points this year he was playing better than EC and at Stans level.
I think he may have had a finger injury at the end of the year. I remember seeing him bandaged in the tournament.
He will be starter here with Russell and Dowtin his senior year. I think he's better than most people think.
Same with Akele, he could be much improved next year as he continues to grow into his body.
If CT transfers he waits two years to play, or he can play a little bit next year and probably start in 18/19 on teams that will definitely battle for NCAA tournament bids.
If anyone will transfer I imagine it will be Berry.
Fan favorite, but if we pick up Kanter or Lane, I'd rather us give playing time to the Mike's so they can developed instead of throwing Berry in there. Love Andre, and I'm sure he loves it here, but he could go somewhere and make a much bigger difference than he could here.

Berry Just finished his Jr year. It is very rare for a Jr to transfer that had to sit a year = Berry.
Your comment that Thompson has to wait two years to play if he transfers makes no sense. He sits one year just like he will on the Rhody bench next year. The difference is if he transfers he gets to play two years after that. If he stays he plays one year (his Sr year).

Find me a real game this year where Thompson scored 10 points. To say he was playing better than EC and Stan is a joke.

I don't think Dan or any other coach would force/pressure a player to transfer. They sit with them after the season and give them a realistic view of their chance of playing time next year. Most kids want to play. This happens all the time. That is why there are 600+ transfers every year.

There's also no guarantee that CT even plays that much his senior year. Depends on who is brought in this year and next. If we start getting an even higher level of player, they could be playing the bulk of the minutes instead.

My guess is he leaves.

Now it's over 700 per year
351 D1 teams so it's 2 transfers per team per year on average

Yeah CT had a bad year.. There was no point at all this year where he played better than EC or Stan... People may be thinking about the year before where he showed some flashes like against PC at home. Bottom line is we have recruited over him. If we want to be the best A10 team for years to come I don't think CT will be starting any year.

I hope we do not lose anybody to transfer. Thompson is surely an A-10 level player. We already have one open scholarship we just need to make good use of it and the players we already have in the program. There are advantages to continuity in a college basketball program. I would not even mind if Thompson and the staff mutually agreed on a red shirt next year.

Thompson does seem very close to several teammates. I could see him staying because of that.
Can a player just select to redshirt any year? I thought the only redshirt for an upperclassman would be a medical redshirt which has to be approved by the NCAA.

Any year can be a redshirt as long as you don't play. You just don't see it after the first year outside of transferring or injury

Not a bad idea for Thompson then. He could start at the 3 for two years after JT graduates. Spend the off year improving his outside shot.

If that 17 and 7, translates to 12 and 6, then KI has been replaced, although he doesn't look as good defensively as KI.
