    I wish the young man well, but he was not a player I particularly wanted.

    there are still some 2021 players whom osu has offered but do not have their own threads, though i think each offer has been posted in this catch-all recruiting thread. unless someone else wants to start the threads, i'm holding off until there is further interest between the two parties (e.g., as with trevor keels). i doubt carter whitt will need a thread since moochie committed to osu. i can see further interest in bryce hopkins and certainly julian roper. perhaps michael foster, too.

    regarding roper, he stated toward the end of august that wisconsin, northwestern, and osu were the three programs recruiting him the hardest. he's taken official visits this month to northwestern and wisconsin. you'd assume that osu would get one, too, and perhaps soon. would love to have him. despite the disparity in rankings between roper and branham, roper is a bird in the hand as an underrated player. allays some of the ballhandling concerns if carton departs early. badgers appear to be in the driver's seat, though.

    2021 recruiting becomes especially challenging if jallow happens to take a redshirt this year. the 2021 roster would be 2 over the limit (at 15, obviously) if there is no attrition and if the staff takes a 2021 post as well as a 2021 wing. you'd assume that there will be attrition between now and the 2021-22 season, but attrition is hardly something you can guarantee while wooing 2021 recruits a couple years in advance. we may lose two players to early departure or transfer, but, for all we know, that may not happen until after the 2020-21 season has ended.

    Gaffney is someone who people have said is interested in going pro as soon as possible, other than that no one jumps out at me as an obvious transfer. Maybe Jallow would grad transfer somewhere else if he isn't playing much?

    gaffney leaving after two seasons would not at all surprise, and it's probably what i'm expecting. thing is, if he leaves after two, how far in advance of the end of the 2020-21 season will the staff come to that realization? would rather it not be an annual thing for the roster to work out only because someone had to leave early. this goes back to that early statement from ho1tmann where he said that having a shorter roster of 11 or 12 players a couple seasons down the road would be ideal for all involved. certainly doesn't seem that we'll see a slightly shortened roster anytime soon.

    edit: as far as players' early plans go, they often change over time. knock on wood, sometimes it's an injury that keeps a player in college longer than planned. all that has to happen is for one player to face an injury that leads to a redshirt for the staff to have no other choice than to run someone off because we're over the limit.

    Based on what I saw in HS and the Cedarville game, if he leaves after 2 years its not going to be to play in the NBA. Not that one game means everything, but not playing at all in the UC game was telling. Now, with Andre out for a couple of weeks, it will be interesting to see how much PT he gets, but I don't know that I've seen a guy go from not being in the rotation as a frosh to leaving for the NBA after year 2.
