These are guys who we are pursuing hard and have us in a final group and/or have recently scheduled visits to Baton Rouge

October 2 - Commitments from Smart and Reid, seem to be the favorite to land Days, LeBlanc out. Archie trending toward TCU. Will stay updated on which prospects we go after moving forward.

Cant figure how how to get images to work

Players Returning for 2018

Brandon Sampson - G - Sr. - 4* #39 in 2015 ESPN100 (possible departure w a big year)
Daryl Edwards - G - Sr. - JUCO
Skylar Mays - G - Jr. - 4* 80 grade in 2016 ESPN

Brandon Rachal - G - So. - 4* 81 grade in 2017 ESPN

Mayan Kirr - F - So. - 4* 83 grade in 2017 ESPN
Galen Alexander - F - So. - 4* #79 in 2017 ESPN100

Very possible that everyone on the 2018-2019 roster will be a 4* or 5* recruit, as well as transfers Edwards and Bigby-Williams, with a possible loss of Sims

Bryan Penn-Johnson was unranked when we offered, so I thought we had a ER good shot but now I see 247 has him in the low 30's now. That's a huge increase

This is my losing mentality, but it just feels good to be in the mix for these guys. Hope we land a few, because I feel that Wade has shown he can maximize talent.

It's a big recruiting year for Wade. He has (at least) 5 scholarships to offer and a dire need for frontcourt players with both (likely) starters, Reath and Combs, being Seniors. It's not just lip service to tell Freshman they will have an opportunity to start on day one.

He did but he stopped doing things for scout and it kinda stopped completely once Ben love was sent packing.

Smart should be first priority. He will bring other talented guys with him that would want to play with him. The future is very bright for tiger basketball.
