Not March Madness but a lot going on with the UW basketball team. I’m hearing as many as 5 guys could transfer out. So far Brooks, Stevenson, Pryor and Tsohonis have all announced they’re leaving. I’ve heard that Battle and Roberts could possibly be our too.
They got a kid from Nigeria to commit today along with former Seattle U star, Terrell Brown, who played at Arizona last season. I’ve heard there are some big names coming to UW. Probably already a verbal commitment but word hasn’t come out yet. The names I’ve heard floated have been Welp (the son of former UW star), Tari Eason (Seattle kid who played last season at Cincinatti), Jaquori McLaughlin ( ex UW commit who decommited once we got Fultz), Marjon Beauchamp (was originally a 2020 prospect and considered a fringe top 50 recruit, was going to sit out and go straight to the NBA, but now is opening his recruitment again).
There are a ton of guys available, just a matter of who Hop can get. Expect a huge overhaul and a much better roster next season.
Hopkins is a below average coach. If UW fans expect him to suddenly turn things around, I think you are kidding yourselves. UW can be good, but you can’t hire assistants to be HC. You hire to hire a proven coach.
I like what Utah did with there hire. Texas is about to land TTU coach. Not saying UW can get a guy like that, but a coach from the MWC or something similar would be an improvement. Look at Altman and Tinkle as examples to follow.
