Everyone makes good points about the possible reasons for holding on to our last scholarship. But, we've had an open scholarship for 2 years. If we have a problem with depth, it'll be in the paint next season. I'd love to have Charles Brown available as our last guy off the bench. He could rebound and play defense and looked like he might be able to hit a few jump shots as well. Just don't understand letting him go.

I'm with you Pop!

We've tended to recruit heavily in the guard department and rarely in the center department.

Should we receive an invite to the MVC ( :pray: :thank: ), we will need to put more emphasis on recruiting bigs, especially those with a defensive skillset a la Jarvis Williams, Ed Daniel and Cuthbert Victor. (Man, I'd love to see those 3 play together!)

And :hey: :goracers:

Problem is if we used the scholly for and end of the Bench big guy he would just sit on the bench. Wouldn't help depth at all. Gilbert was serviceable and sat out most games. No he is gone. Like 75 said if we get MVC invite Gilbert would have been valuable to have .
