Two prospects visting this weekend
Posted: 4/18/2013 3:41:00 PM

DeAndre Johnson has also signed with FAU. Congratulations to both Johnson and Marquan Botley.

Detroit-Renaissance guard Clark Bishop commited to FAU. Will sign in a couple of days. Led the DPSL in scoring - that' impressive.

 Sweet! They play good ball in Detroit.

I wonder if we are buiding a pipeline up there.

Welcome to FAU, Mr. Bishop!!!

Nice. LOTS of great players from the Detroit area. If this kid was 6'2" or better he would be playing for Michigan! Welcome to FAU!

He's taller than Moody, but is also skinny. Bishop's coach told me he "plays above the rim." He also played with DeAndre Johnson in AAU leagues and says they have a good chemistry.

Port Aransas guard Tyler Pate has committed to play at FAU. I'm told he's a good scorer - can shoot or drive. He is the fifth and final member of the class.

Add Brian Hornstein to the 2013 basketball recruiting class. He started his college career at Army.

 This is all on Jarvis. We haven't had too much success with big man transfers lately. Hopefully, this one will be different. Don't want to poopoo the move, but I have limited confidence in Jarvis' decisions. I will take the wait and see .

With all the players transferring out of FAU , men's basketball maybe heading to join FIU with sanctions with the NCAA. Sure hope these latest recruits will stay  and finish their college careers at FAU. Would not like to see reduce scholarship and no post season play. If that would happen you see a very empty burrow or any other venue at FAU.

Clark Bishop, a 2013 basketball signee, didn't meet admissions requirements and will not be at FAU in the fall. He may attend prep school and then re-apply to FAU or he may simply go somewhere else. If I had to guess I would bet somewhere else.

Without Bishop the Owls have one scholarship left to give - but they may choose not to use it for this year. If they do bring someone in, look for it to be an international player or perhaps a graduated college senior with one year of eligibility remaining.

@mac I agree, big men transfers have been way overhyped in the past. Hornstein could make an impact, but he didn't do much at Army - not exactly a traditional basketball power.

I am looking forward to seeing Justin Raffington take the court. I frequently watched the San Francisco transfer practice with the team as he sat out this past season and he was the best big man on the court. He may break the trend of transfer busts.

Then sign another BIG MAN we always have too many guards and not enough big men and now we are playing CUSA competition, not the Belt!

@gaowl - Easier said than done. Good big men don't grow on trees (they are trees) - as FAU has shown. Many more good swing men and scorers, which is why you often see three and four guard lineups pulling surprises in the NCAA Tournament.

Apparently Javier Lacunza was the last cut for the Spanish national 19 & under team. thus, he will be enrolling again this summer. Question: does anyone know when the men's basketball schedule for next year is coming out? Does anyone know of any non-conference games that are set?

Posted: 6/21/2013 3:25:00 PM

I heard FAU is planning on playing Maryland and Duke away.      I heard Harvard, UCF and Memphis will be coming to the Burrow.    Not sure when the schedule is released, but I think there are a couple more games to schedule.  I can't wait for FAU Hoops to start again.    Too bad Javier did not make the Spanish team, but looking forward to him having a good season here.
