Assuming Policelli comes to SBU, he'd have to sit out a year, no?  He played in 20 games at Dayton this past year.
How old a Seawolf am I? I followed them during their Final 4 DIII hoops run in 1977-78 (they were called the Patriots then)

A teaser just sent from SBU MBB Twitter account:

@StonyBrookMBB
Who's 🖊 on the dotted line to play in front of the best fans next season? Stay tuned...

So, maybe this is Policelli, and maybe he got a hardship waiver to play next season?????

I think it's going to be Tyler Stephenson Moore and Mouhamadou Gueye. I'd love for a surprise or two though

Even if Yeboah ends up staying at SBU, that would mean that a scholly would be left on the table.  I doubt that will happen.  There's got to be one more commit in the offing, don't you think?

You're right.  It's Moore.

I'm really high on Tyler Stephenson Moore. I'll be surprised if he's not on the all rookie team next season.

Thatís really interesting.  I see more from Gueye but Iím just watching both on YouTube highlight film.  Why are you high on Moore?  He looks a bit slow to me.  Iíd love to be wrong!

I'm very intrigued by Gueye, but I'm guessing he's going to need a season of grooming at the D1 level.

I see Moore as a cross between Olaniyi and Latimer. I actually think he looks really athletic; Look at how easily he gets above the rim. Offensively I don't expect much off the dribble, but I think he'll come in and be solid 3 and D guy right away.

Bryan Weber follows and liked this tweet from Nic Thomas 6' 2" guard from Norfolk St. who averaged 14 pts per game for Norfolk State last year. It's nice to get guys who have proven they can produce at the D1 level.

I can't reveal source, but heard very reliably that Akwasi is not coming back.  Unknown if he's transferring or going pro.  Given this and the departure of Long and Moor, and the signings of 2 new recruits, that should leave us with 2 schollys for upcoming season.  Personally, I'd load up on 2 Grad transfers; there's enough of them out there.

Huge bummer. Was hoping no word this far into the process was a good sign regarding Yeboah.

Further to yesterday's discussion, looks like Akwasi is going the transfer route, as opposed to going pro, per several Twitter posts today:

"Stony Brook transfer Akwasi Yeboah (16.7 ppg, 7.7 rpg) has already visited Rutgers, and told @Stadium he will head to both SMU and TCU this week. Also considering Marquette, Clemson and Arkansas."

This makes Vermont losing Lamb even more crucial

Pray he at the very least winds up in an NBA camp somewhere. He's good enough to get taken in the 2nd round though. Dude was top 5 scoring in the country IIRC and basically carried Vermont.

"Stony Brook transfer Akwasi Yeboah (16.7 ppg, 7.7 rpg) has already visited Rutgers, and told @Stadium he will head to both SMU and TCU this week. Also considering Marquette, Clemson and Arkansas."

All good opportunities to prove himself, but I'm really wondering why Clemson and Arkansas of all places are on the list. Oh well. Best of luck to him.
