FYI despite coaching change, Tyler Stephenson-Moore remains committed

Smart committing to the UNIVERSITY, and not just the coach. Good.

Agree, but I think Moore is another one of Weber's recruits.
Correct, Moore is another one of Weber’s guys. Weber is the only one from the former staff that had a LUHI connection. LUHI coaches deal with The Hoop Group Organization. You can connect the dots from there.

Long is a valuable loss. Showed some big flashes towards the end of the year.  Was interested in seeing his development over the summer.

Though I can say, We are in the mix for some Grad Transfers from leagues higher than us.
Immediate impact + Experience hasn’t hurt anyone (I think lol)

If we can become a destination for grad transfers (instead of a source) that would be very intriguing.

Really happy that we kept Weber- maintaining a local recruiting network here in NY is crucial. It's also helpful that Geno's son is the coach at Harborfields which may come in very helpful.

Can someone update us on SB Basketball transfers at this time. Did Corry long leave the program. What about Moor and Yeboah..

http://www.verbalcommits.com/transfers/2019

Long transferring (TBD school), Akwasi registered on transfer portal but is 50/50 currently, no indications at all that Moor is leaving as far as I know.

Long is out? I guess he didn't see a path to much playing time? Still sucks to lose some depth. he was serviceable when we needed him to be. I'd expect Yeboah to leave.

Beating a long dead horse here, but as long as we're in the AE, we'll always be a stepping stone for coaches and players. It's really hard to hang on to guys in a low major league like this.

Long is going to have a good last 2 years. Best of luck to him going forward.

SBU just received a verbal commitment from Mouhamadou Gueye.  He's a 6'10" JUCO transfer out of Monroe College with 2 years to play with the Seawolves.  He seems to be in the vein of Otchere, but somewhat more offensively skilled.   This one caught me by surprise, as I thought for sure we'd target a PG, of which there were several quality offers out.

Wow, interesting.  Are we talking Twin Towers up-front now?
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)

I had posted about Gueye back in the fall. His handle is shockingly tight for someone his size. I generally fall in the camp that our 6' 9" players should be playing with their backs to the basket, but he's interesting. Also think his length (+Otchere, Olaniyi, Moor, etc.) will be a nightmare for opposing teams.

High upside addition. I like it.

I like it. Probably means Christie gets cut though. Nothing against him personally, but I can't exactly say I'm sad about that development. Still need a PG though.

I, too, thought PG will be a priority. But Gueye looks like a good talent. As others mentioned, we’ve got some length now... athletic too.

Per VC we still have one more roster spot left for 2019.. is that correct? Perhaps that spot for a PG.

Well, Foreman for Cornish is a wash.  Hopefully, only 1 - for Corry Long transfer - and yes, hope it's a PG.  If Akwasi leaves, I would expect that to be filled with a corollary grad transfer inbound (again, PG please).

I believe Gueye is taking Long's scholarship. If Akwasi stays, the roster should be set for the 19-20 season.

Where does that leave Tyler Stephenson Moore, then? Doubt they’d carry around four bigs on the roster. Christie is likely getting the boot.

That begs the question - can they just release scholly guys like that?  Aren't these schollys for the duration of their academic career assuming that they stay academically eligible?

i think theyre 1 year contracts in all sports

with that said- most have an implicit understanding that it's a mutual commitment
