Considering we don’t have a scholarship for him unless someone else leaves, I do wonder if we chose Thelissen over Jones. I’m not worried about it that’s what the coaches elected to do.

FWIW I spoke to someone fairly well connected to Ute basketball yesterday and he claimed he had known about Rylan becoming an Aggie for a week. These things are obviously fluid and can change, but he seemed confident Jones is heading to Logan.

Looking forward to it. At least you can help us in keeping grounded and not saying the sky is falling all of the time.

I’m guessing Miller is done. No one else really makes sense to me at this point but who knows.

Yeah I’d agree. And I wouldn’t doubt if what bpd alluded to yesterday is the answer.

Still a little curious about Potter. We just haven't heard much chatter about him at all.

Totally forgot about him, likely because we haven’t heard anything about him. I walk back my Miller guess. This is probably it.

So what’s the speculation? That he is headed to the U of U or entering the portal or something?

One random, poorly sourced individual comments on Miller's back and everyone assumes that must be it. 22 has said that isn't the case. Coach Odom said that Brock is much more than just a scorer and will play a big role in nest year's team. But for some reason, people latch onto this one stray, unreliable comment like a dog to vomit.

We've been told "no" enough times. Until it happens, or reliable news comes forth, I won't believe a bit of the idle gossip that Brock is out.

Welcome, Rylan!

As a funny aside, one constant frustration of many of us on this board was our lack of PG depth. Now we have Rylan and Eytle-Rock joining the fray.

Also, Utah has now lost Rylan (to USU) and Pelle Larsson (to AZ), currently leaving them with one PG on the roster - Rollie. Maybe lack of PG depth just follows Coach Smith everywhere (yes, I know he still have time to fill a spot).

I’m pumped for this. Losing the Montana Kid hurt, but not anymore. I love that Rylan has Cache Valley roots, amazing pickup by Coach Odom.

RJ is really more of a 2 that can play some 1, but yeah.

I can already tell we are going to be a much better offensive team next year, but very likely a worse defensive team.

We lost Queta, so this was unavoidable. Losing Marco just compounded the issue.

Have we now learned our lesson with recruiting the state of Montana? The mold was broken with Estes and there is no need to go back there. It doesn't work out.

Would Rylan be the best recruit we have ever had? On 247 sports it shows Zapala as our best recruit who was a high 3 star. Out of high school Rylan was a 4 star and ranked #113 in the nation and #11 PG in the nation.

This is a HUGE get. Local kid, understands the program's history and culture, and fills in a big hole that we've been missing. Add him and RJ with Ashworth off the bench and we should have a very solid backcourt.

For how low things felt a month ago, we've bounced back nicely. Basketball can't come soon enough!!

Welcome Rylan, i have only seen a few highlights, but this is a very solid pickup. Anybody that has watched a lot of Rylan, how does he matchup defensively? He is on the shorter end, but have not watched to know how good he is on defense.

Glad he’s here. Still wondering how this happened. If someone on our current roster doesn’t hit the portal in the next day or so, best guess is that Cade Potter is not coming.

Nothing against Mr. Potter, but I’m kind of hoping this is the explanation.

A foot shorter than McBuckets and 100 lbs heavier.

Also, want to see something funny? Here's the picture from 247sports sayin that he entered the transfer portal:

And now here's the picture from Deseret News saying he's transferring to USU:

Notice any differences? :lol:

Here you go: https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... ylan-jones

I would focus more on his first year stats. He had a shoulder injury most of his second season. I'm hoping that explains most, if not all, of the regression in the numbers from his first to second year.
