"Wow. Picked Brown over Penn St, Washington St & Texas Tech among others. With Cambridge that's a really, really strong backcourt pair in 17."

Awesome pickup. Some real talent in that backcourt next year. That and Columbia's backcourt. Throw in Chris Knight, and there's some real talent coming to the bottom four from this season.

This is a huge pickup for the Bears. Will be a significant upgrade from Tavon "let me make a stupid play with under 2 mins left" Blackmon.

Kid looks like he has a lot of Sean Mcgonagil to his game. Like that.

Give this a little time boys, its going to start trending in the right direction.

Three seniors graduate. Three players leave the team. Five incoming freshmen and a Juco soph enter stage left. Some newcomers seem to have a swagger to their game which is desperately needed to spice things up on the roster and on the court. Martin continues to raise the talent level of the program. And there won't be a senior of any consequence next year. A talented youth movement is well underway. Perhaps the generally placid Pitz will become a place where optimism reigns and excitement abounds. Go Bears!!

Looks like a pretty accomplished player, small scoring guard. From the looks of it this is a nice pickup.

By my count that's now a 14-player roster, but with six of them standing 6'3 or less and four upperclassmen. Lots of competition for that starting 2 and backup at the 1-2. Frontcourt brings the 6'9 Fuller (my vote for most improved), the raw 6'9 Erebor, the bulky 6'7 Wilkinson (who we didn't get to see enough of), the 6'9 freshman DeWolf and the-who-knows-how-big-he' ll-be Howard (who can be so quietly effective on offense). Very young team that will be interesting to watch.

His father is Dick Hunsaker a longtime DI assistant and head coach who most recently was head coach at Utah Valley, leaving in 2015.

This young man was a HS senior in 2013. Just guessing but in many cases Utah kids do a 2 year Mormom mission, then do a year or two of Juco to get their game back.

Haber, Charnov and Ljuboja are apparently leaving, Massey may be returning.

Wilkinson appears to be gone from the roster as well.

Front court looking awfully thin. I could see Massey getting time at the 4, where I actually think he could give them some minutes. At this point they'll need the body down there and he's got pretty good size and strength for a guard. Not ideal but given the glut of guards I think that's a possibility.

Not sure I agree, Bruno. Fuller, DeWolf, Howard, Erebor, Okolie and even Choh may see time up front.

You've got four legitimate bigs in there, with Howard who is 6'6. Fuller showed the real stuff and Howard does nicely around the basket despite being undersized. Erebor is a nice big body but very raw and didn't get much PT last year. And the incoming freshman is a freshman who I'm not sure is an impact player. It's thin OB.

Choh looks like he may be able to play down there down given his athleticism. I do not see Okolie manning the 4 - not his game or body. But both guys are undersized, as is Massey. I bet you a dollar he gets more time at the 4 than he does at the 2.

Probably a lot of 4 guard sets, depending upon the match ups, though I think Howard may be more of a 4 than a 5. I don't know how much to expect from Massey. I hope I am presently surprised.

I really hope Howard starts at the 4, because I think this team will need he and Fuller to get major minutes to compete. Howard plays like a 4, and he's less undersized for that role.

Oh and I hear Leland King is available. 😄
