Does anyone have a handle on the situation with Junior Saintel?  At the Meet-and-Greet with Coach B. a couple of weeks ago it was indicated that he just had to finish off a couple of courses at junior college, and that he would arrive on campus shortly.  I'm beginning to get suspicious.  Looking at his school's calendar, it seems that the second summer session is already over.  I hope SBU doesn't have another Ben Homes (Football) situation on its hands!!

I'm hoping they just haven't updated the website yet. His twitter account still says Stony Brook so I'm hopeful.

What else did they say about the new guys at the meet greet?

As you might expect, Coach was quite high on the incoming class.  He indicated that Almonacy's intro to the practices was on a particularly intense day of practice drills, and that he looked good, but was clearly exhausted by day's end.  He seemed impressed with what he had seen of Yeboah thus far, and that he was anticipating some improvement and higher energy out of Petras and Sturdivant, now that they had lost some weight.  He mentioned that Campbell was showing some "flashes" of terrific play, and he hoped that he would pick up some of the weight that was being shed by Sturdy and Petras.

He pretty much had good words for everyone, but mentioned that he was taking practices easy for Garcia, Sekunda and Mitchell, as they were still recovering from significant injuries.  I asked if he anticipated having to medical redshirt any of them, but he indicated that he expected all would be in shape to play.

Junior Saintel  is on the roster I see today. That's a good thing they list  him at 6'7".

 That's good for us. He was a big part of their offense.
