Staccato – Spring Recruiting

3rd Stanza

Spring has sprung and college basketball recruiting has never let a little thing like weather get in it’s way.  Recruiting is in full swing.

The Jays are still beating the bushes in the transfer market – as expected being Transfer U – looking at several graduate and regular transfers to augment the roster.  We lost 4 seniors to graduation and Khyri is a possible 1st rounder in the NBA Draft (mid teens to high 20’s).  Mr. Thomas has declared, but no agent as of yet.  I fully expect Khyri to turn pro as his stock will probably not get higher with a senior year campaign.



The Jays are looking at several graduate transfers:  Matt Mooney (SDSU), Brock Stull, (UWM), among others.  Mooney has visited the Hilltop, but no word yet on a decision.  Mooney is down to TT, NW, and Creighton.  No visit yet for Stull although CU is listed in his Top 5.  It should be noted that Stull is very familiar with former UWM coaches now at Minnesota and Butler.  Stull is visiting UMinn.  Cremo committed to Villanova.

New guy – Grad Trans:  CG Tramaine Isabell (Drexel), 6’/180.  Averaged 21, 7.5 rebounds (at less than 6’0″) and 3.5 assists.

CU getting in on Isabell.


Among the regular transfers CU had major interest in PGs Koby McEwen (Utah St) and Malachi Flynn (Wash St), sit 1, play 2.  McEwen committed to Marquette 2 weeks ago.  Flynn committed to San Diego St. last week.

New sit 1/play 2 is SG Denzel Mahoney (SEMO), 6-4/213.  2016-17 OVC FoY.  2017-18 1st team All-OVC.  Denzel’s numbers:  Averaged 19.3 points and 5.3 boards this past season and shot 41 percent from 3.  200 FTs also. A native of Oviedo, Florida, Mahoney ranked second in the OVC in scoring with 19.3 points per game in 31 starts this season. He led the Redhawks in scoring, rebounding (5.1) and free throw percentage (.835), and ranked second in 3-pointers made (64) and minutes played (31.3). Mahoney also dished out 39 assists and had 28 steals.  Former FL HS 8A PoY.

Appreciate all the schools recruiting Denzel Mahoney at the present time. However, Denzel is down to his top 4 schools Creighton, Ole Miss, Georgia and Virginia Tech.

Thank you

Mahoney has set up visits to Creighton and Ole Miss according to his AAU coaches.


The Jays are looking to land at least 2 transfers.
