    Big A 2019-2020 Roster

    1. James "Beetle" Bolden - Sr Grad Transfer - PG
    2. Alex Reese - Jr - PF/SF
    3. Galin Smith - Jr - C/PF
    4. Herb Jones - Jr - SF
    5. John Petty - Jr - SG/SF
    6. James Rojas - Jr - PF
    7. Kira Lewis - So - PG
    8. Jahvon Quinerly - So - PG (Sit 1, Play 3 unless he receives a waiver from the NCAA)
    9. Javian Fleming-Davis - RFr - C
    10. Jalen Forbes - Fr - SG/SF
    11. Juwan Gary - Fr - SF
    12. Jaden Shackleford - Fr - SG
    13. Raymond Hawkins - Fr - C


    A lot of turnover since this was first posted. Giddens and Ingram announced they were transferring right away which opened up a scholarship for us to get a commitment from Raymond Hawkins for some much needed inside help. Then Diante Wood announced he was transferring which opened up a spot for Beetle Bolden. We desperately needed another PG so that was a huge pickup for us. Trendon Watford wound up signing with LSU so we signed JUCO transfer James Rojas who I think will be a day 1 starter and will wind up being a very good player for us. Tevin Mack originally declared for the draft but left the option open to return to school. He then said he was coming back to school but would be transferring somewhere else. We signed transfer PG Jahvon Quinerly to fill the spot that was opened up with Mack's transfer. Quinerly has applied for a waiver but will probably have to sit 1 year and then have 3 years of eligibility remaining.

    When I look at the turnover and the final roster results I'm amazed at how quickly Coach Oats moved to fill the gaping holes and more important, how effectively he filled those holes. He was able to keep certain players from transferring (Lewis and Petty), he kept the 3 signees that xCAJ had signed, and then he brought in 2 PG's and 2 interior guys. One of the most important things a coach has to do is manage his roster properly and my initial impression of CNO is that he will do an outstanding job of roster management.

    Re: 2019-2020 Roster

    Freshmen will make up around half of the roster for this upcoming season and only one senior. I hate to see it but some additional defections may be necessary not only to get the players needed to fill specific roles and positions but also for balancing the classes.

    Holes usually open up but at the moment, this would allow for one recruit next season if Watford commits to Bama. Maybe that is too much to worry about right now...

    Oates also made a comment that more defections could come as players learned whether they were a fit or not for his system. He also made a comment about the team having a few too many bigs.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if Galin Smith enters the portal soon. He and Giddens were prototypical musclemen who couldn’t shoot and didn’t hustle. Appears that CNO didn’t make a move to keep Giddens, so very possible he pushes Smith towards other opportunities as well.

    Aside from that, I like how the roster is shaping up. Hopefully the guys buy-in and Oates turns out to develop players as well as his reputation indicates. We should have a better chance at the tourney next year with a few breaks.

    I wouldn't say that Smith doesn't hustle, he's just slow and not very athletic (can't jump) and there is just not much that can be done about that. I think at the end of the season he was a better inside player than Donta was. Donta never worked to improve his game. He was a dunker and shot blocker when he arrived and that is what he was his career ended. Galin had developed a bit of inside scoring ability but in a fast-paced attack that I expect CNO to run I just don't see Galin fitting in very well. If he is willing to be a situation role player than can come in for those times when we have to play at a slower pace then I think he would still have a role on the team.

    I saw a tweet a few days that made me think that Javian Fleming-Davis is considering transferring. It wouldn't surprise me to see him wind up at Tennessee Tech with John Pelphrey. That is just a guess, I have no inside information it is based on a couple of tweets that I've seen.

    Fair point. I wasn’t referring to lack of hustle as a negative. More so as a guy who wouldn’t fit a fast paced offense. Smith is a back to the basket plodder. Sounds like Oates wants to obsolete that kind of player from the roster.

    Sounds like you and I meant the same thing, you just worded it better than I did.

    Thinking these two players may in the convo as well:

    1. Javian Fleming-Davis - RFr - C
    2. Dianta Wood - RFr - SG/SF


    I know JFD was mentioned previously because he's used to a slower-paced offense. All of it will play out eventually. I'm just really hoping we land Watford.

    Fleming and Galen are the obvious ones. One person I talked to even thought Fleming was already in the portal.

    Watford is a big get because he seems like a versatile big that really would make this offense hum. Kira is an ideal guard for this offense. Watford is your ideal power forward.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    And Watford UNDERSTANDS how to not only play with his teammates but make them better ... he has a good understanding of the game. Could be the difference that makes it to the first two rounds of the tourney verses a team that can make a competitive run in the tourney

    Diante Wood is in the transfer portal. I'll leave his name on the roster until he is officially gone although I suspect that is a pretty much a given. This would open up a spot for the PG grad transfer from WVU (Beetle).

    How does guys leaving/being pushed out effect our APR rating?

    Also, Coach Oats needs to be careful about “pushing” guys out. That is what got Goff fired as our baseball coach. Obviously a 100% different situation but, all it takes is one kid to complain BAMA is not honoring a scholarship. (Oats can boot a kid from the team but, they keep their scholarship.)

    Hoping we get Wattford. We have a nice nucleus returning with Kira, Petty, Jones, Mack, Reese. Add in our 3 early signees, Hawkins and hopefully Wattford, we could have a nice rotation.
