If we add Imes, Booth, and Shrewsberry to Markus Burton, that’s a pretty solid class. I wonder if either of the guys who decomitted will give another look? Should be a solid path to early PT.

Listened to the II pod, Prister dropped the news that his son will be following him to ND. Not a shock by any means, but still could’ve given the kid his moment.

I would LOVE to see ND actually get some post players. Just having Paul Atkinson Jr. for that one year made such a huge difference.

Hopefully this happens

Just to show how useless coverage of ND men's basketball has been in a general sense, go look at 247's recruiting page for Booth: there is zero mention of any offer or interest from ND. And that's despite ND coming off a nice season last year and bringing in a good class of recruits.

Beat part of this has been watching the 8 PSU basketball fans pretend like he might not leave, all while calling his dad every name imaginable because he left for a better job in his home state.

There probably was zero interest until the coach he was committed to was hired by ND.

I get that, but lack of interest on the part of the recruit isn't usually a factor in a recruiting website reporting interest from a school.

Dunlap liked this tweet.


It would be great to get him back in the fold.
Is Lubin still on the team?
Thankfully, yes. So based on Noie's tweet, it doesn't sound like he will be leaving.

There was never anything tangible that he might leave but given the state of the program up until this hire, it was worrisome to think about.

Would like the beat to get on recruiting finally.

Btw, this kid looks like the real deal. Let’s hope we can close this quickly.

Why? The basketball team has consistently gotten undergrad transfers for over 20 years.
How many guys from South Bend who played 2 years in Indy before transferring to a shady charter/hoops factory in Arizona got into ND?

ND isn't Duke ya know.

I could be mistaken, but in the past I believe the year that transfers used to be forced to sit out was used by ND as a way for these undergrad transfers to “catch up” if needed prior to actually using a year of eligibility. I believe the thought was that a transfer sitting out a year could take a larger course load than a typical student-athlete. Again, I could be mistaken.

The issue we’re going to have here is 1) ND will only admit him as a junior 2) his classes are unlikely to all transfer over from East Carolina where he’d be a “true junior”

I imagine there may be some leeway for a local kid with great grades, but I have zero clue about his academic background.

I found an interesting Scholarship breakdown..had no idea Dom Campbell left...so looks like right now 5 scholarships used with Ryan...8 to give right? So if Shrewsberry can resign the 2 players who had left and brings the 3 Penn State recruits...3 more spots, get at least 1 Big

Cormac announced he's entering the transfer portal while simultaneously getting a NBA eval, so I'd assume he's a goner, so that's 9 schollys to give if I'm not mistaken.

Actually 8...supposedly the 3 Penn State guys are following Micah...we so 5 more to give? Get some grad transfers in, especially some Bigs...

I miscounted, you're correct fellas.

I'd welcome Cormac back but I feel like the chances of that are slim to none.

Prister's Thursday Thoughts: "There's a high probability the Irish will land all three" in reference to Booth, Imes, and Shrewsberry. Also mentioned the possibility of some PSU underclassmen transfers.
