I wonder if he could start off his Racer career as a walk on and work his way into a scholarship?

I don’t see him walking on with a full ride to Vandy on the table.

Never know who might be upset with playing time and want to bolt. It will happen.

I don’t think we’re on the same page cause I have no idea what you’re talking about? I’m saying if he chooses Murray it will not be as a walk on, it will be a full ride. I could be wrong but I would bet the farm I’m not.

I am assuming that Sig was suggesting that we will likely have a player transfer after this season due to being upset with playing time and that will open up the scholarship for Jackson to come not as a walk on. This goes back to our conversation last week where Smidge and I were suggesting that when recruiting it is now a necessity that the staff keeps in mind the high likelihood of transfers. Smidge made the correct point that the staff knows 100% of what is going on with their team and players while we know very little. I don't think that Matt meets with a player at their house for hours recruiting them without an open scholarship if he doesn't at least have an inkling that a scholly will be opening up at some point.

I know that I want the kid on our squad that’s for sure! Let’s get this one done and put a nice bow on a really remarkable recruiting class for us!

I 100% agree with Smidge and StlRacer. We don't know and people will bolt because of playing time. I mean the transfer portal if growing each year.

Jackson had a campus visit this weekend right? Anybody have any insight on how it went?

im wondering if he can run and use quickness for our style of play? Maybe he can, I just don't n
know. I hope the msu connection isn't part of this.

He is an outstanding shooter, and will have several offers. Better be glad that there is an MSU connection, or we might not be in the mix.

As far as I know he visits Vandy this weekend and that is last school visit. I would expect him to announce soon after but who knows?

I haven't seen the kid play, as I live down here in Georgia. I remember his dad being a good shooter. It will be so cool to have a legacy come to play for us at Murray State. Has that ever happened in Racer history?

I hope Jackson also understands that Murray offering him a scholorship isn't one of those "Animal House" legacies that MSU is obligated to let in. Murray is an Elite Mid-Major and it's an honor to get offered. I am sure that McMahon is quite serious that he can contribute to the success of the team, or he wouldn't even bother.

His father was a decent player and played quite a bit. However, Jackson has more speed and athletic ability. Vanderbilt and St. Louis both are after him. We do have an inside due to the legacy, but I assure you that McMahon is very familiar with him after seeing him at his prospect camp. That opened his eyes. McMahon would not be offering if he was not legitimate, with all of the talent he has available.

Im in the same mindset- I dont think that CMM would jeopardize the chemistry in the locker room for a "legacy". If he is recruiting him hard (and it sure seems that he is) then he must want him pretty bad.

And as for the scholarship situation- there is no guarantee that we dont need to fill the spot of a guy who leaves to go to the NBA.

I have no problem with the Racers oversigning by one or sometimes even two players. The NCAA allows programs to oversign by two. You just have to be under the scholarship limit by the time the school year starts. The overwhelming majority of the programs have at least 1 player transfer annually, and the national average is about 2. This summer there were more than 700 players in the transfer portal, and there were 353 Division 1 basketball programs. Those numbers don't include kids that leave early to turn pro. The number of transfers is growing each year, and that's not likely to change in the near future. To me the only problem with oversigning every year is the appearance that you're running kids off annually, which can be used as a negative against a program in recruiting.

Sometimes relationships which seemed like a potentially perfect romance in the beginning, turn out all wrong for one or both parties. Nobody had a crystal ball turned on in the beginning and it’s pretty standard and accepted that a scholarship is for one academic year. It just is whether we like that fact or not.

LOL Smidge, not sure if the first part of that post was from your personal experience but I can relate to that.

In years past as the season progresses we could reasonably predict who would not be back. At this point this year I dont think we can nor should we. Playing time will be a battle this year but chances are there will be a few that don’t get a lot. I guess it’s a moot point until we hear how the Vandy visit goes for Sivills. It certainly appears CMM is all in on him.
