  • Champswest

    Caris has a big senior year and then Tyus slides right into his old spot.
    And the beat goes on.

    awesome…now maybe a little domino effect for us for the future recruiting :)

  • EchoWhiskey

    Wait, what? Pleasant shock of the year!

  • UMTigersWingsLions

    I saw your video with you hoping to go to the NBA. Dont worry kid, coach JB will get you ready like no one else would :)

  • mikey_mac

    Huge get. Very excited about this one. We are one PG signing away from having a continuously deep, very talented roster over next few seasons.

    • Mark Worthley

      sounds like a one and done player, though

      • Indiana_Matt

        Which I think is absolutely fine. I think our staff has recruited a good group of guys that are going to be in it for the long haul. Putting major talents in place along side them, even if for one year, will make us very competitive. Go blue!

      • You never know in this day and age, but I wouldn’t say Tyus is a sure fire one and done. A lot can happen over the next two years, but he could easily be a two-and-done type as he improves. Or he could have a monster freshman year and head to the draft.

  • Jake

    can someone wake me up please?!!!!

  • Mattski

    John Belien is an okay coach, but he just cannot recruit. :)

  • A2JD

    That’s big news! Get a PG for that class and they’ll be a Final Four contender in 2017.

      GOODIN next please! GO BLUE!
