Just a hunch, but if Hicks and JC are graduating, don't expect them to come back.  Few do these days in college basketball.

I agree. Hopefully, the staff is recruiting on the assumption that they will need to fill four spots (or five). From the looks of things, they are doing that this summer. They did not seem to take that approach last summer.

You want to see recruiting splash, go the signed recruits thread and watch the splashy video of Jake Fay signing his letter of intent. the Fay brothers were the worst tandem of recruits in Fordham history and were an outright fraud.

If we indeed want Josh Alexander, here is an opportunity for Mike DePaoli to show us something on the recruiting front.

2018 Josh Alexander is locked in for @ElevateHoops Summer Showdown on 7/21-23. Offers from Boston U, Howard, Towson, Columbia, Fordham
http://www.verbalcommits.com/players/josh-alexander

6'8" from Carmel and attends Iona Prep. This is from Big East Recruiting last month.

The 6-foot-8 forward provides a tough, two-way presence on both ends of the court. He’s an aggressive player down low, banging his way for a finish around the rim. He also has great rebounding instincts and crashes the offensive glass well. Defensively, he’s a bruiser that isn’t afraid to play physically.

So far, he has a ton of low to mid-major Division I offers, with Fordham, American, Colgate, Columbia, Howard, Hampton, New Hampshire, Quinnipiac, St. Francis (Pa.), Stony Brook, Siena, and Towson in the mix.

He also has interest from other Ivy League schools such as Brown, Penn, and Yale. According to Alexander, a few Big East schools have also emerged—Georgetown and DePaul. It seems like St. John’s can add itself to the conversation.

Saglam was not on ship.  I'm guessing the Turkish guy is from Depaul is not listed yet either, which makes 13.

Correct. Ertan Gazi is not yet listed.
7  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Ivan Raut signs with Fordham on: July 11, 2017, 08:59:10 pm
Which would exceed 13 ships unless someone else is leaving.

I don't think they would have posted any player on the new roster if he was leaving.

2017 (MNE) F Ivan Raut has committed to Fordham. (HT @Eurohopes) http://verbalcommits.com/players/ivan-raut

This news probably deserves its own thread as we customarily do in order to welcome the new player to Fordham.
9  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Rothstein's A-10 Offseason Notebook on: July 10, 2017, 02:40:45 pm
On paper, I cannot disagree with this prediction. In addition to Rothstein, I recently saw two other predictions that had us last.
10  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Players I think we should look into. The Recruiting Speculation Game on: July 02, 2017, 10:07:40 pm
PG Damari Parris is transferring from Western Kentucky. We recruited him out of Evelyn Mack in NC where he was a prolific scorer prior to the WKU commitment. I think he needed a year to mature physically and did not live up to expectations in his frosh year. He was also hampered by a hand injury. He would need to sit a year and have thee years left. I think he could be a very nice player but I don't know if we have the luxury of being able to have another player sit out next year. 
11  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: All time best Fordham Starting five / on: June 29, 2017, 05:26:41 pm
A player hardly ever mentioned is Bill Langheld, who was drafted by the Celtics.  He scored 44 against Manhattan in the Garden.  He never seemed to reach his full potential however.  Langheld graduated in '68.


Bill suffered a back injury in his frosh year and never fully recovered. Auerbach saw him play against BC at RHG and drafted him. He was the last man cut from the Celtics.

I was at that game but my father told me that Auerbach commented to Marty Glickman during the game-"I don't know who the hell this guy Langheld is but I like him." 
12  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: DePaul transfer Erten Gazi has committed to Fordham, per a source. on: June 28, 2017, 08:05:51 am
Gaze is not one of them


That would suggest that someone is not returning.
13  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: DePaul transfer Erten Gazi has committed to Fordham, per a source. on: June 27, 2017, 04:53:44 pm
I've heard that the two Europeans are definitely coming but that they are definitely not bigs

Do you know if Gazi is one of the two Europeans? If not, two more scholarships would put us one over 13. 
14  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: DePaul transfer Erten Gazi has committed to Fordham, per a source. on: June 26, 2017, 05:43:41 pm
Does he sit out a year?

It appears that he will need to sit a year and then have two years left. Listed as a 6'4" guard from Turkey. Seems to have played very sparingly for DePaul this past year. 
15  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: June 17, 2017, 08:09:35 pm
Delante Jones to Seattle.

We must have backed away from him.  Wink
16  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: June 17, 2017, 02:24:38 pm
Not sure, but going into a season with 10 players is risky to say the least.  Hopefully we find a couple ballers

And with three of the ten players coming off fairly serious injuries/surgeries.
17  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: June 16, 2017, 06:46:14 pm
Three days now since this post... Define soon? Anyone could've posted this comment. At least I learned about Seattle  Roll Eyes

Was the poster serious or just being a little sarcastic?

I don't recollect three overtimes.  Wasn't it just one overtime vs. Marquette?

Yes. And the Temple game was at RHG on a Saturday afternoon.
20  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Pre Pre Season X & O on: June 01, 2017, 08:16:14 am
Can the bigs be coached to avoid some of those ticky-tack fouls?
21  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: All time best Fordham Starting five on: June 01, 2017, 08:01:53 am
John Bach spent 10 years at Penn State and was 122-121. He finished with 4 straight losing seasons at Penn State....

Yep. John Bach was an outstanding gentleman. But he never made a post season tourney at Penn State. Digger might have been a phony but he was a very good coach.
22  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: May 30, 2017, 08:10:53 am
Braziller's evaluation/grading of the Spring recruiting period. We get the lowest grade among the eight local schools.

Fordham

The Rams were hit hard by the transfer market, losing lead guard Antwoine Anderson (UConn) and Christian Sengfelder (Boise State), but they’re confident they found able replacements in high-scoring JUCO guard Tre Evans and St. Peter’s transfer guard Antwon Portley. Portley, however, will not be eligible this year, and Fordham is still expecting to add two pieces to round out the weakened roster. Grade: C+

23  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: All time best Fordham Starting five on: May 26, 2017, 08:37:24 pm
Has any Ram exceeded Tony McIntosh's all state (football 7 Basketball) in two sports?

Kenny Parker was an All State QB in NJ. He was also a very good basketball player but probably not All State. He was recruited to play football but was told that he could not be a college QB (thankfully our society has changed). He decided that if he could not be a QB then he would play basketball. John Bach was one of the few coaches recruiting him to play basketball because everyone thought he was going to play football.

At least that was the story from many years ago.

My bad to forget about Charley "Y" in the NBA....You are correct about his being blackballed...He refused to stand for the National Anthem along with Bill Walton...Charley "Y" never played in the NBA the next season, went to Italy where he became a local "legend" and a basketball hero.  He later married an Italian girl, raised a family there, and I believe, still resides there.  Bill Walton, being Bill Walton, never
was "punished" by the NBA.

Alan, Charley's buddy was Sidney Wicks, not Bill Walton.

Conlin
Cunningham
Yelverton
Charles
Dunston
26  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: All time best Fordham Starting five on: May 25, 2017, 06:22:53 pm
Charley Yelverton also played in the NBA. He was drafted 25th by the Portland Trailblazers, but after I believe in his 2nd year he was blackballed from the NBA for not standing when the National Anthem was played.  He then he went to Europe where he was a huge success.

I saw him play against the Knicks at MSG.

That sounds like the same game I attended.

I was told by a SJU source that Mullin would play Fordham but Neubauer does not want to play. No information on why not.

SJU will play Iona in the holiday festival.     
28  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: May 19, 2017, 03:17:22 pm
So with JC returning, we have two scholarships available with ten active players on next season's roster. I still think we sign at least one more guy.     
29  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Disappointed ! on: May 18, 2017, 09:49:57 pm
Based on tonight's press release , looks like we may be done

No more commits for next year's roster? You don't really believe that, do you?   
30  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Recruiting Update on: May 18, 2017, 09:05:56 pm
Maybe the timing of the press release just coincides with the end of the NLI signing period. Any future commits will not sign a NLI.
