I don't know anything about this recruit, but my first thought is that he is probably a "project."

I have to agree NB.

U of H refused to play CCSU for years because they had a superiority complex. QU has the same issue now and playing CCSU in their eyes (only) is a step down and they could never tolerate a loss.

Any 7 footer not already scooped up be a Above the RED LINE team is a project.

Yes. Its always possible to teach skills to a 7 footer but it is not possible to teach a skilled player to be a 7 footer.

We've always been unable to teach the skills for some reason.

And now they have added a former Northwestern starter. From today's NH Register:

4 star recruit. We've never sniffed one of those before. Maybe I don't want to play them any more. smh...

The Q has released their non-conference schedule. Looks like a busy weekend before the Thanksgiving break with home games on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday:

Hope SHU and FDU wipe the floor with them. I want on their schedule, home and home. Was fun when we owned them until they turned the tables.

That's a garbage schedule. Yes, they get 4 home games, but those are AE and NEC teams that we get as well.

Add in a boring 20-game MAAC slate - that isn't much better than the NEC.

Miami (FL) is the only major on that schedule. Not impressed at all. Padding the schedule for wins.

“Padding the schedule for wins.” J.J.
And they need to do just that, because over the last two decades Quinnipiac's D-I Men’s basketball program has been a masterpiece of mediocrity.

The late great NH Register sportswriter Dave Solomon once wrote that Quinnipiac had “the best image money could buy.” Lots of that money was poured into the sports programs atop Mount Bobcat. Now the Q’s ice hockey program has been a huge success, despite the fact that the nearest National Championship banner resides a few miles down Whitney Avenue in Ingalls Rink.

But the men’s basketball program, despite a state-of-the-art building, highly paid coaches, and excellent media coverage has still not been able to surpass what Joe DeSantis achieved in 2002.

Yep, shoreline - QU has a great image, but no substance.

QU is looking like a poor man's Boston University. QU is trying to be like BU but without the city campus and social scene, academics, or international students that the Terriers can draw to Beantown.
