OK....fire away! With the recent transfers, coaching changes, and those in the portal, here is what I hope our 2021-2022 roster looks like...

Only 2 players that are important for us to keep, if possible:
Liam Robbins
Brandon Johnson

Most likely and impactful three transfers from the portal, some which are for short-term gain and others for long-term gain:
Jamison Battle
Dawson Garcia
Ishmael El-Amin

Only recruit I care to keep, based solely on potential:
Treyton Thompson

Key transfers that would make a sudden impact:
Race Thompson
Daniel Roddy

Up-and -comer:
Isaiah Ihnen

Great gamble:
Parker Fox

Glue guy:
Gabe Kalscheur

Take a flier on a position of need, with an inside track:
C.J. Wilcher
KyKy Tandy

Fill out the roster:
Jarvis Omersa or Martice Mitchell

Go ahead and 'blow it up'!

Have to keep Kalscheur. Please no Roddy - totally not a Big Ten player having watched him a few times. There is a reason he ended up where he is. Can’t guard a 5 for sure due to height and struggle with anyone else due to lack of quickness.

Seriously? Roddy is one of the best players in the MWC. I’d take him in a heartbeat.

You can be a player there and it not transfer. Too limiting. No thanks. I want length, ability to defend, and shoot. He’s pretty much 0-3.

I’d be fine with Omersa leaving, especially if keeping Ihnen & Mitchell, and gaining Fox, Battle & Garcia.

Here's where they're at right now.

Based upon only those who haven't entered the portal and those who have committed for next season, here's what we've got. Need some guards. Sticking Gach at PG because he's the only one on the current roster who could play there.

Center
Liam Robbins
Kenny Pohto
Treyton Thompson

PF
Brandon Johnson
Martice Mitchell

SF
Isaiah Ihnen
Jamison Battle

OG
Gabe Kalscheur

PG
Both Gach

Yeah I'm thinking Fox will do what Omersa did but be a little better
I don't want this to seem like I'm hating on Fox, but why all the excitement for a D2 transfer at a position where we (currently) already have 3 guys on roster? There are over 1000 guys in the portal so even if we were going to take a PF I think we could get someone more Big Ten ready. If we're comparing him to Omersa who left the team last year without anyone noticing I don't think Fox deserves the hype.

Also, I'm not one of the ones thinking we have a realistic shot at Dawson Garcia or Race Thompson.

It would seem like picking up Fox would be against what Johnson said he was going to recruit- shooters. Fox is a high flyer but it appears he can't shoot from the stats?

I mean I get it we want athletes and guys with a high motor that play hard...but we saw with Jarvis that doesn't always equal quality minutes. I'm just a little skeptical.

Tmvander, I agree. From watching jarvis play a coupla years, it seemed to me liek we were over-sold on his ability. Great mobility/athleticism, but the wrost shooter we've had since Miles Traver maybe.

PG: Ish El-Amin
SG: Gabe
SF: Battle or Gach
PF: Johnson, Battle, Mitchell
C: Robbins, Thompson, Photo

They need a couple more guards, I think Race Thompson is also an option. Please stop with the Garcia talk, he isn't coming to Minnesota. I've not heard about Johnson if he's going to stay or go but Race is a great replacement and a beast on the boards.
