In order to make ANY noise this season, we need Bane to be huge this year, and I think he knows it. I expect him to log 35 mins/ game. Luckily he's generally a healthy dude who's built like a Strong Safety.

Looks like a couple of new additions to the team:

 

-Jaire Grayer, a 6'5" grad transfer guard who averaged 11.0 points and 5.3 rebounds per game in 102 career games at George Mason:

...and Taryn Todd, a 6'3" Class of 2020* guard from Canada who played at Findlay Prep in Las Vegas last year:

Kouat Noi is staying in the draft, says his agent.

 

He will probably wind up going back to Australia or over to Europe.

 Obviously Grad transfers Dennis and Grayer are immediately in the rotation.

Current 15:

 

Seniors 

Bane 6-5 G

Greier 6-5 G (Grad Tr George Mason)

Dennis 6-0 G (grad Tr UTA)

 

Sophomores

Samuel 6-11 C

Davis 5-10 G

Mayen 6-9 F

Nembhard 6-4 G

Barlow 6-10 C

Ledee  6-9 F (Tr sit- Ohio State)

Easley 6-6 F (Tr sit- Chattanooga)

 

True Freshmen

Fuller 6-4 G

Farabello 6-1 G

Smith 6-6 F

Pearson 6-7 F

Todd 6-2 G

 

C- 2

F- 5 ( two sit)

G- 8

 

Just talking this out.  Gotta figure the 2 senior transfers, Bane, Samuel, Davis will be on the team. Barlow, Mayen, Nembhard seem like candidates to leave.  Barlow seems less likely given we haven't signed any true big men to play next year. Fuller and Farabello have been long term commits and are highly touted guards.  Along with Davis and the seniors, guard seems like a likely place for attrition, which makes me wonder about Nembhard. Mayen also possible, but would leave us thin at forward with the two transfers sitting out.  Do have the freshmen forwards and Bane can play big. Plus Mayen not exactly an inside threat.  Could release one of the freshmen or transfers like we did earlier to another signee.

The 6-foot-2, 170-pound guard was originally a 2020 prospect but reclassified to a 2019 prospect. He was ranked as the No. 198 overall player in the nation according to 247Sports. He is ranked as the No. 45 shooting guard and No. 7 overall player in the state of Nevada for the 2020 recruiting class.

Ah, ok - thank you.

 

So yeah, we'll have two (more!) departures then.  

 

My guess is that at least one of them will be (another) of the guys who were originally slated to have to sit out a year.

Someone on HFB, not Jeremy, mentioned that Fuller may be playing some point this season.  I'm not sure if that's true but we need someone besides Farabello to play PG and he's the only true PG we have.

Well Dixon will have his work cut out for him this year.  Don't see how we won't be picked last in the conference with this much turnover.  Could have had have had 11 returning players from last years opening day roster... now only have at most four.

Heard the last player not returning is Mayen.  If true the roster is:

 

Seniors 

Bane 6-5 G

Greier 6-5 G (Grad Tr George Mason)

Dennis 6-0 G (grad Tr UTA)

 

Sophomores

Samuel 6-11 C

Nembhard 6-4 G

Barlow 6-10 C

Ledee  6-9 F (Tr sit- Ohio State)

Easley 6-6 F (Tr sit- Chattanooga)

 

True Freshmen

Fuller 6-4 G

Farabello 6-1 G

Smith 6-6 F

Pearson 6-7 F

Todd 6-2 G

 

 

Will be interesting.  With Samuel and Barlow basically splitting a spot and Ledee and Easley sitting out, going to have 9 players filling the minutes of the 4 other positions.

We're gonna be a matchup nightmare for some teams...and vice/versa.

 

Yeah I think he's going positionless at the other four positions.  I would guess Farabello and Dennis would be the primary ball handlers.  Early games are going to be interesting to watch. I really don't know what to expect.

I just noticed that there are no juniors.  I guess we won't have any seniors the next season unless we recruit more grad transfers.

Nembhard and Samuel are redshirt juniors, FWIW.  This will be Bane's fourth year with the program, Nembhard and Samuel's third, Barlow's second and nine (!) players in their first year with the program.

 they will both be redshirt sophomores, not juniors.

Didn't phrase that correctly.  Meant to point out they are in the their third year at the school.
