Re: New commit - 2019 WR Sean Carter

I like what I see as well. Looks like we replaced the size of Tarver and Greene with this kid and Mariner. Hopefully he can step right in and compete. I was pretty worried about the WR group a few months ago but I think we may have a pretty decent bunch and some weapons to work with. Not me. Our WR...

New commit - 2019 WR Sean Carter

Really glad we’re bringing in at least one upperclassman WR. I wonder if he’s a walk on though.

Re: Queta - NBA Combine

Jonathan Wasserman is a very reputable draft source. He’s released his top 50 draft prospects post nba combine after talking with NBA scouts he says.

Queta isn’t on it.

Re: All Mountain West Pre-Season USU > The rest of the MWC

This is great. Thanks for sharing. Athlon sports has been very complimentary of USU.

On another note, another 1st teamer on there Toa Taua sure would've been a great pick up. He's a beast. It was down to us and Nevada and he chose Nevada.

In my opinion, the one glaring need for this team is an athletic PG with great ball handling and passing skills. When teams like New Mexico press us we need someone who can actually handle the pressure so our team doesn't turn it over 20+ times. Our lack of athleticism at the guard spot was also mas...

I think it all hinges on how Queta does at the combine. If he does well and he’s getting good feedback that he’s a first round prospect, he’s gone. If he is told he’s a second round guy, I’m betting he pulls out of the draft and comes back next year. I think he's gone. Let's assume for a minute Que...

Re: Nebraska’s Heiman in the portal

We don't 100% know if Queta will be back or not. I'm sure a ton of these decisions are basically hinging on that. Whether or not we need to bring in a big man and I'll be there's some talented guards out there who want to know if he'll be back before they were to commit.

The trend is definitely towards stretch bigs and smaller, really athletic “rim runner” type big...

Re: Queta

In my strong opinion Queta isn't a 1st round pick, not this year. I will bet the likelihood of him getting drafted in the 2nd round is at 99.9% though. He's the perfect 2nd round pick. Is pretty raw and has a ton of potential.

Re: Hoops Spring Signing Period Begins Today

Another component of why we won't see someone today is that there are a lot of grad transfers that are aiming high. Once those top spots are filled up then we'll likely see more interest from other players that were trying to go to a top p5 school and be able to land someone.
