Penn State Basketball / Re: Grad Transfer List
« on: April 27, 2016, 11:28 AM »
The grad transfer market is hard, all the good ones get snapped up by bigger fish and the leftovers are not good enough for P5 level.

We already were an undesirable location for grad transfers, so us striking out (seemingly anyway) shouldn't be a surprise. We look far more focused on filling the only available ship in 2017 and the 2018 class.

I would imagine that Geno went. His transfer announcement didn't occur until June I believe.

5K is a lot like a marathon if you don't incorporate distance.

Obinna is at the Pitt Jam Fest today. I'm not sure who else is.

Gor lost to Batirov, so Molinaro was eliminated.

Frank's last chance to qualify for Rio will be in Turkey the weekend of May 6-8. He'll have to end top 2 to qualify.

I'm not sure if he's throwing shade at Jermaine or not, it's hilarious though.

Jay Wright has his pick of the litter in Philly until further notice. 

He's had that for a while. We're competing to be the 2nd destination.

Frank Molinaro's first match will be against Xuan Dinh Nguyen of Vietnam.

I don't think we'll have to worry about Zain's academics.

I didn't hear any news about us bringing recruits to the B&W game, would it be correct to say no recruits were there? With only 1 ship it's understandable, but obviously you'd hope someone would be there.

Tough to have a good visit when the coaching staff is all over the country at evaluation period events.

That's a good point. They've been very active early in the live period.

There is some funny season stat out there that I can't fully remember, but I believe it is Klay Thompson is 2nd in 3 pointers in a season and the only person to beat him is Steph. It's something like that anyway.

The Warriors have constructed a near perfect team, it is amazing when you think about it. Imagine if they add Durant this summer.

No Gavitt Game for Xavier? That seems odd. Not sure why 10 teams from each conference can't participate.

Damn, DCR cutting us really, really stings.  Back to square 1 on the big man recruiting.

Shocked I haven't heard more about transfers...

I just don't get this. We aren't back to square 1. We've been recruiting bigs pretty heavily, not just DCR. Losing 1 doesn't put us back to square 1.

Besides, I think Aamir Simms has been recruited by us heavily, perhaps more so than anyone else in this class.

No Diamond Stone is obviously going to be a killer, but losing Melo Trimble would be possibly be the most devastating loss in the conference. Maryland may fall back towards the middle of the conference, we'll see.

It's been super quiet for us on all fronts really. Very little on the transfer market and recruiting (though it's a dead period right now anyway).

I would guess that this means Aamir Simms has grown to an even higher priority.

I believe Grand Canyon is one of the games as a result of the Tip Off Classic, so I expect that's only a one year deal.

Frank Molinaro beats Aaron Pico 2-1 over their 3 match series and ends in 1st!

I believe it means he's going to train with the team. I believe that only the winner of Pico/Molinaro's 3rd match (series tied at 1-1) gets to try and qualify at 65kg at the World Qualifiers. Granted, I'm not 100% convinced.

Hopefully Zain is able to keep up with his academics.

The Olympic wrestling trials take place in 10 days.  A batch of Penn Staters will be headed there.  Hopefully, they will be able to nail down a spot or two but the odds will be long against them. 

Update from Session 1 today, Frank Molinaro got to the finals at 65kg where he will take on Aaron Pico in a best of 3 series to determine who advances (though as Tim Auman pointed out, they'll need to qualify at one of the remaining World Qualifiers). Molinaro defeated Kellen Russell, #1 seed Brent Metcalf and 4x national champion Logan Stieber to get to the finals where he will take on Aaron Pico (who upset the #2 seed, Easton's own, Jordan Oliver). Two of Pico's opponents, Oliver and Humphrey, both withdrew before their consolation match. I'm not sure if that means he's a rough wrestler, or just had a luckier draw by going up against a couple of guys carrying injuries.

Zain Retherford finished in 3rd place, though he probably will feel disappointed that he didn't face Molinaro in the semifinals. Zain had a 4-0 lead on Stieber before giving up 4 takedowns in a row, and eventually falling 8-6. After losing to Stieber though, he defeated Jason Chamberlain, Jayson Ness, Reece Humphrey (inj. withdrawal), and Jimmy Kennedy (in the 3rd place match). I believe this means Zain has qualified for the USA Wrestling team. I'm not familiar with international wrestling, so I'm not sure what that specifically means.

I can't speak to Villanova's hiring process/procedures pre-Rollie Massimino because I'm struggling to find information on Jack Kraft's pre-Villanova coaching history, but really since Rollie, they've been a job that looks internally for coaches who have been there before. Rollie, Jay Wright and Steve Lappas all were assistants at Villanova at some point before becoming the head coach there.

Pat Chambers is familiar with the recruiting area and familiar with the program, he seems like someone they'd at least interview if Jay Wright left. Mind, I don't think Jay Wright would leave, I've said it before, he reminds me of Tom Izzo in that he's destined to coach college kids forever.
