    Lobo Roster is still in flux ....

    First Post Banner
    Please feel free to update as the roster continues to come together for the 2018/2019 season. Exciting times again in Loboland!

    6-10 240 Isaiah Maurice (verbal commitment and still waiting)
    6-10 230 Vladimir Pinchuk
    6-9 255 Carlton Bragg (eligible in December)
    6-9 235 Vance Jackson
    6-9 225 Karim Ezzedine
    6-9 210 TaJuan Agee
    6-7 210 Dane Kuiper
    6-6 200 Makuach Maluach
    6-5 210 Jaquan Lyle
    6-3 200 Troy Simon
    6-2 185 Anthony Mathis
    6-1 185 Chris McNeal
    6-0 180 Dru Dinnon

    I don't forsee all these players being on the roster as the Lobos have yet to sign that big guard that can defend. I forsee one of the bigs not coming in and possibly a guard leaving the roster as well. Lobos will sign at least three this Spring Signing Period.

    Darn. Penny coming in and stealing one maybe. That kind of confirms all the speculation/worry.

    Bragg is verbally committed and will become eligible in December. Does this mean he can not sign a LOI until then, or will he be signing a LOI during this signing period?

    I was gonna say Butch McRae pulling some Nick Nolte action. Wonder how Weir feels about this news? I'd be busting at the seams. Hopefully Maurice stays true to the guys that have stuck by his side for the last season. He's already seen the dog and pony show at K-State and he would be going into a situation of unknowns. Hopefully he wants to work hard and play a big part of one of the more talented squads (on paper) we've ever had here at UNM.

    He doesn't need to sign a letter. He's already in residence and if he wanted to go somewhere else he'd forfeit yet another year of eligibility.

    It's never over .....

    Maurice's stock rose after that great run to a JUCO Championship. You have to expect that you will get competition for the very good players. It's Memphis versus New Mexico. I hope Lobos are still in it and he follows through on his verbal after all.

    Weir had to know it was coming. We could pretend that the Ezzeddine signing and Manigault offers weren't signs, but in the end, usually things are what they seem.

    Perhaps his visit did not go as well as expected last weekend or he might just want explore all options before making that commitment. Weir's mantra is "Believe or Leave" and he has probably made his decision and will move on.

    Yep. Coaches often pull offers in these situations.

    Weir also said after the season ended that he was going to visit with all incoming recruits and make sure the knew what they were signing up for and to make sure they were on board with all that entails. That could be part of the math here. Go Lobo Recruits.

    Yep, was kind of wondering about that comment as well in his final presser and to whom he may have been referring? I can't imagine though, Weir and staff would stay committed to a kid unless they though he had what it took to be in the program? Decision is not final yet, so let's see how it plays out.

    I wasn't implying anything about a particular player, just the fact that that could be the outcome of a meeting of that nature.I guess though, that if Agee was already signed then Weir probably was hinting about Maurice.

    If either us or Maurice moved on then too bad, but I still like where we are at next season. If he is wavering on our style of basketball, or is worried about playing time, then good luck to him wherever he ends up.

    Some have mentioned we might get one more to sign for next season- any good rumors on LJ Figueroa?

    We'll see. I hope it's not more roster shuffling for the sake of it. Not likely to get an impact stud at this point unless talking about a DI transfer that would have to sit out the year anyway.

    Percy is a 2019 recruit, as I understand it, so he doesn't count for this coming season. I guess there's been some confusion about his class. He may be 2018 after all.

    Stop with the confusion! He is a 2018 recruit and will be on the court when the games begin with the ball in his hands from time to time. 2018! At least one player will be transferring out. It will probably be two.

    Why would you say something like that without any verbal or written justification for making such a prediction? Are you using an ouija board, or do you have an inside source? Maybe you are just trying to stir up responses? Silly post if anyone asks me.

    With Mark "retired" I'm sure glad we still have a lair member providing live updates from practices. Not gonna lie, I miss those practice reports. It usually got me even more pumped up for the season to come.l

    Roster is still in flux and we can expect more news in the next few days if my arithmetic has not left me. I guess I could be wrong. But I don't think so.
