Anybody have anything on the Posey visit? Maybe he's working on a commitment video.
One can hope, right?
Was wondering the same. No tweets or press conferences yet. Lol

Haven't seen or heard anything yet.

He's not extremely active on Twitter, but he did like my tweet yesterday though.

Another one off the board. I think we're going to take a hit for a while, losing Haymon hurts.

Haymon gone, Mason health issues that at least keep him off the road, and the last season fiasco. Just a few weeks until the season starts and the early signing period. I know Ivey and Keller are working on a couple of options to fill the voids at least short time. Beyond that, we need wins this season to generate excitement that facilities alone won't do.

Ya. He might need to pull the trigger on a new hire quickly.

Needs to be a guy that has some charisma and a magnet. And needs to have some bb knowledge also. Lol

Sounds like you No-look. Ready to start traveling for a cause?

So are we outta room for Shamir?

Because it feels like passing on a Bogues is not something we'd want to do, even if it's a PWO offer.
SFA Jack Fanatic
How long do you want to ignore this user?
It appears so. Shamir is very good, but he's just not the assumed prize that Posey is. It would be fantastic if Shamir was available as a walkon, but it's almost certain that some school will give him a full ride, maybe a JUCO, the way that Shannon got his start.

Was SFA recruiting Shamir or has it just been the Sawmill?

Wait. Are you insinuating that we make things up here on the Sawmill? No way!

BTW, I just heard that we will definitely be constructing an on-campus baseball and softball complex. It will be paid for by two anonymous Sawmill regular contributors from Nac and Palestine.

My heart skipped a beat until i read that the "anonymous donors" are from Palestine and Nacogdoches ...

Ha! You can probably guess who those two jokers are... The tall guy and the guitar man.

We will gladly fund it but first Ed, we'll need 6 of your luckiest numbers.

I've heard that 'one is the luckiest number', but you're on your own for the others. (...or was that 'the loneliest number'??)

Curious what the story is with this Bogues. As best I can tell, SFA and A&M Commerce are still his only two offers. And, without attrition, we are full.

TallTexan
How long do you want to ignore this user?
I don't want to see any attrition, but I'd love to see Shamir atleast as a PWO.

I think that would be the only way he'd get him. But if Commerce is offering him a full ride, that would be hard for him to pass up.

That would be unfortunate.
TallTexan

Very unfortunate for us. Would be great for him to get to play on the D1 level, but I don't want to see a Bogues on an opposing team if we can help it.

Are we out of spots completely?

Unless there is attrition, or a signee doesn't qualify, we are full.

Shannon had to go to JUCO to get were he needed to be as a player. Nothing wrong with JUCO. Now he is playing in the G-league and can earn an opportunity to play in the NBA. If the coaching staff didn't go after him.. then they have there reasons. They probably know more about him then any cbb team/recruiters bc of Shannon playing at SFA
SFAJack_76
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Talented player. Appears to be a good kid. Only D1 offer is SFA. Sounds like a potential qualifying concern. Certainly nothing wrong with Juco. Look at our current roster.

If Shamir BOGUES goes to another school in the Southland, I'm starting a moveon.org because THAT IS WRONG

We did offer. I understand not all offers are equal. At least that happens a lot in D1 football where some offers are not commit-able. Odd, but the way it is. Since we filled open slots with others, did we move on, did Shamir wait too long, or?

Please explain... "some offers are not commit-able".

It's not something that is normally admitted to, but it's basically saying that you have an offer but we have prospects rated higher that we are considering. I've said it before, but recruiting is a VERY hard and tricky game. If you have 3 openings, you can't just offer 3 players and hope they all commit. But if you offer 10, what about those other 7 after you get three committments? That's basically where Shamir is. As of now, we're full for next year but we have kids that have offers from us (verbal offers are not binding to the school).
