while I know several around here don't care for such nonsense about a sport with a round, orange ball, it should be noted that Mark Fox has been very hard at work this spring.
First, he landed another post player in Miller Grove's Donte Williams to join Cady Lalanne in the grooming to slide into a role once Jeremy Price, Chris Barnes, and Trey Thompkins are all gone (and Thompkins is said to still be considering throwing his name into the NBA draft ring, with April 25 the deadline to declare and May 8th the deadline to withdraw if he does declare).
Next, we filled the role of departing Ricky McPhee with another sub 6'3 sharp shooter from Dublin in Sherrard Brantley. For more on Brantley, see Paul Westerdawg's recent reports found here, here, and here.
No, not that sort of sharp shooter from Dublin.
As things currently stand, Mark Fox has added 4 new players to the mix with Williams and Brantley joining Lalanne and transfer Gerald Robinson Jr with 4 outbound in guards Ricky McPhee and Demario Mayfield and big men Albert Jackson and Drazen Zlovaric.
With 2011 recruiting about to heat up and about to demand focus, that leaves two major roster construction projects left for next year's roster. The big project is of course having Trey Thompkins think it's in his best interest to stick around for one more year. The other key piece is high flying Dwaynee Polee. The former California skateboarder is looking to decide between UNLV, New Mexico, Oregon, and Georgia by the end of the month, if not within two weeks.
