    Zane Johnson

    First Post Banner
    Got word that former UOFA 6'6 shooting guard is considering transferring to UNM, BYU, and HAWAII. If Zane continues to be more consistant he can be automatic from long range. It was really disappointing he decided to transfer, but ZANE is a player I can guarantee you that. He is athletic enough and really improved from last year.

    UNM's chances are very good along with BYU and Hawaii. Those are the leaders in no particular order

    why is he leaving? I think we're out of room for guards. Got a couple of schollies set aside for the bigs, only. i'd be surprised if we burn a schollie on another guard, unless he's super special.

    Zane did not feel good about his chances of playing. Miller assured him he would and Zane would have done very well. I could see how he would feel that way. Actually Roob Zane is a good shooter but has to be more consistant. Under Alford Zane would excel. He's good but he has limitations. I do not know what the situation with the scholarships are but obviously UNM is at least interested or they would just tell him they have no room for him.

    Disagree, Roob. The numbers would tell you that we need to add multiple bigs, but SA loves sweet shooting guards. I don't think he'll be able to help himself if one he really likes comes along. He supposedly already offered the kid from Indiana (Berry).

    We'll have to see what develops with Johnson.

    Hey, I thought you weren't suppose to talk to a player before transfering?

    Isn't that some kind of NCAA violation? A la Danny Granger?

    But then my next qustion is how do players know if a scholie is available or if a team even wants them if the team can't contact them.

    Maybe the player can contact the program? Who knows.

    This whole transer thing is a mystery to me and most fans looking in from the outside.

    School is over...how is that a violation? Zane announced he would be transferring a few weeks ago. Which means schools are allowed to talk to him. No one was talking to Zane before he made it official that he was transferring.

    Yup. Since he got a release, other schools are free to contact him.

    Be a nice bench player, has a little trouble defensively and creating for himself but when he is on he is deadly and hits no rim.

    He's not terrible on Defense. He is limited but he improved alot in that area. He is not the type of player who can create for himself. Zane has a sweet looking shot when he is on.

    If Johnson does transfer for next year, I assume he will take our 1 available scholarship, and we'd only have one for the following year.

    Is that correct?

    What class will he be in next year? He would have to redshirt a year wouldn't he? Hobson would only be left for 1 when he started to play if so.
    Go Lobos! Go Nunn! Go Sam! Go Joe!

    If your considering getting a TESLA, please PM me! I may have a discount code.

    This transfer year would be his redshirt, he would have 2 years to play 2.

    He just finished his sophmore season LoboDawg. Yup he would redshirt. Mike Dunlap sure helped Zane in many ways. He was one of the better players in the state of Arizona with Jerryd Bayless obviously being the clear-cut best in HS for the class of 2007.

    Zane went 3-4 from three against UCLA in McKale. He had 11 points total. Also had three rebounds. He has a smooth shot but a lot of his misses rimmed out.

    Surely Zane's range is better than 3 feet though?

    He's 6'5 at best. Brendan Lavender is 6'4 and Zane is taller than Brendan. I had the prviledge of attending many practices. It's not as if I would know about that or anything

    I hope everything works out for Zane. I want Cobbins and Kirk... We have shooters, Matt Staff, Dennie, Phil Mac, Hobson, Fenton, Ro, seems like Alford is recruiting "special players leaning more towards freshmen".
