I know some have mentioned taking on a PG for next year who has already graduated but has a year of eligibility left ala Sam Maniscalco for Illinois. Anyone want to randomly find someone?
I know this guy is a 4th year Junior and would be a ridiculous coup for next year. I have no idea if he has graduated though.
Who else who fits the bill?
Damian Lillard bio
Lillard is going to the NBA.
I like the idea, but let's aim a schosh lower than a first round draft pick.
yeah after reading up more on him it appears so.
I know a PG is what MT is really looking for, but this guy could be a nice piece if we have some attrition.
Swopshire's the cat that got tangled up pretty good w/ Cousins a few years ago. Fun stuff.
I saw yesterday that UCLA's Brendan Lane will be going this route. He mentioned finding a West Coast midmajor where he could get playing time. He's not really a need for us, but I found the whole concept and seeing how it trends over the landscape interesting. A major concern (among others) some coaches have voiced was that the major schools would poach the non-majors, but that hasn't seemed overwhelming the case. This season there were 15 players playing under this rule (3 still getting minutes for tournament teams left). So far Swopshire and Lane are the only ones I've heard for next season:
