  • EARLY SIGNING PERIOD

    Coach Marshall said he was an expecting Father---then went on to explain it was because The Early Signing Period is upon us. Now THAT was a classic. Does our expected 3 signees warrant a top 50 rating in the Country? I sure like who we have coming!!!!!!!

    By late signing period, I would not be surprised if we have openings to sign 1-3 more? Stay tuned.

    I doubt we will get much recognition nationally for this class. The rags reserve that right for teams with 4* players and above. Nationally speaking, Murry is a nice player, Hannah is a juco so he won't get much attention, and Stutz is forever in 3* land because he didn't sign with UK. Had he verballed to Gillespies kid he would be in the top 75! I think you will see us get a lot of MVC recognition next fall in the preview mags. JUCO National Champion PGs and skilled 7-footers start to catch some eyes at that point.

        With the team on their way to VI, I doubt it. I'd just watch for a press release on GoShockers.com.

          Does anyone know how the other teams in the MVC are doing recruiting wise? Also do you think we will have the top class for the league?

              By virtue of SIU's one 4-star recruit, they'll get the nod.

              But if we're not 2nd, then the MVC has a very bright future.

                It has been said that future games will be won if you do your duty on Signing day and bring in the artillery. Today will prove to be a day to remember with this solid crop of recruits!!!!!!! Reply #7---that was just lucky.

                  I believe the 'Birds also have a nice class.

                    For those of you in the know.......which one of these freshman combo guards is our future point guard? Kyles or Murry? (down the road, of course)

                      I'm certainly not in the know, but from what I have read it sounds like Murry is the most likely to develop into a point.

                        Possibly neither. I see two possible scenarios:

                        1) Murry has been a PG. Due to his recent growth spurt he's become a combo. He could be groomed into our future PG, backing up Hannah his first two years.

                        2) Next year, Marshall recruits a true freshman PG who can learn a year behind Hannah and either take over his soph year or share duties with Murry, then take over as a junior.

                        To me it sounds like Kyles is more suited to be an athletic SG. I keep thinking he may be a slightly taller, more athletic version of Sean Ogirri.

                          Rivals is saying they have the best center prospect in the MVC with Jeremy Robinson. A 6-8 three star from IL. I think he is more of a PF and sure wouldn't trade Stutz for him.

                          Rivals also says the Redbirds' Bobby Hill, the 34th ranked Juco player, is the MVC's top SF recruit. I haven't checked on how he is doing this year. The Valley hasn't recruited much in the way of small forwards so the Rivals MVC ranking is pretty much by default. Their other recruit is a two star PG.

                          I agree it's a nice class, but far from impressive so far. I believe they have one open scholarship.

                            Is that the same Bobby Hill that was a freshman at Illinois St. then transferred?

                            If so, I don't remember him being all that impressive, even for a freshman.

                              Yes. He was planning on returning, and did.

                              edit- I guess I should say he is a step closer to returning.
