As of right now (there could always be transfers) we have four scholarships to give for the 2011-2012 season and three verbal commits (Dylan Ennis, Nick Harney, Blake Justice). That leaves us with one more scholarship to be spoken for. Our current 2011-12 roster should look like this.
PG-Alex Abreu-Sophomore/Redshirt Freshman
SF-Michael Green-Sophomore/Redshirt Freshman
SF/PF-Josh Egner-Sophomore/Redshirt Freshman
PF-Dakotah Euton-Sophomore/Redshirt Freshman
A list of 2011 scholarship offers can be found here:
So lets here it Zipsnation, who do you want to see fill that final spot.
Dream: George Fant-PF-Bowling Green Kentucky: Normally in a dream scenario I would say Mr. Sampson from down the road at St.V, but looking at our roster we would then be getting a log jam of athletic combo-forwards with Sampson, Harney and Egner. Fant is more of a true post player with the ability to play with his back to the basket. Most consider him to be among the top 5 prospects in Kentucky for 2011.
Realistic: Remy Abell-SG-Louisville Kentucky: The Zips are going to be short on SG's in 2011-12, even with the addition of Blake Justice. Abell is a likely answer to that. The Zips have jumped on him early and should hopefully have the inside track as one of the first programs to offer him (there has been interest from programs such as Xavier and Louisville). At 6'4", 197lbs Abell is described as a do it all SG who can score in multiple ways with good defense to boot.
