Does anyone know which recruits Coach Wade looking to sign in the spring? He mentioned on his radio show he is looking to sign a couple more in the spring, just was wondering if anyone has an idea who they might be.

Wade mentioned at the lunch meeting on Tuesday they have been doing recruiting for 1 or 2 remaining slots for 2018 as well as 2019 prospects. He did not mention any names, of course, but did say that both junior college as well as late signing period high school seniors were in play for the 2018 slots.

Yuat Alok is a JUCO Forward we are bringing in shortly.

Emmitt Williams will be back in play if all is well, 5-star forward

Yea, I see Williams is back playing again and the prosecutors office has not formally filed charges against him. If there was legit evidence against him I'm sure the DA's office would have filed charges already. Not sure what the situation is, but I hope he isn't the type to rape a woman. I haven't seen video of Alok, will have to check him out. Thanks for the info.

Someone can correct me if I’m wrong but if everyone eligible to return comes back we can sign 4. I think Wade has said he plans on 5.

Really hoping Sampson is back next season to team up with Waters and Smart.

I think Galen Alexander will transfer. He seems to be struggling. Hope I'm wrong, because I think he's a good prospect. But he's not a Wade guy and hasn't transitioned to college ball well.

That would open up the fifth spot.

Not real big on Alok tbh. Will he be that much better than Kirr?

I think he’s just in a log jam right now. And he’s a Wade guy basically. He could have gotten out and Stayed. I understand he was a JJ recruit..

He’s a freshman coming off injury too. He’s gonna need time to develop and Wade knew that when he signed him.

Yeah, I see some good potential in Alexander.

Just need patience to see what future holds.

Agreed. I think he’ll be a really nice player for us.

So any speculation on what kind of player they’d go for for that 5th spot in 2018? Let’s say they get Alok.

If Emmitt Williams is cleared, he is an absolute take. Possibly would move us up to the #2 class.

Didn’t he admit to the crime or was that just a rumor?

He admitted to having sex with the girl through texts with a friend of hers, charges still not there though.

From what I can gather he admitted to having sex with the girl, but he didn’t say anything about it not being consensual. The whole “he admitted it” angle was super premature, bc like so many of these cases it doesn’t turn on whether or not there was sex but rather whether or not that sex was consensual.

Now none of us have any idea what happened between him and that girl. But the lack of charges and reestablishment in high school seems to indicate the police/school don’t think there’s enough to warrant charges/punishment at this time
