    Signing this recruiting class accomplishes several important achievements. With Omer Aksu, we have a skilled guard who can play point guard for four years. I have nothing against Gino, but Omer played for a U19 national team. With the company that Omer kept as teammates, and the experience that he got in international play, I think that it's safe to say that his skills are stronger than Gino's. In addition, Gino is really too small to be effective at this level (5'11, 150lbs). Aksu has really good size for a PG (6'3", 195), and also plays shooting guard.

    The staff also filled a huge need for depth at the post with the addition of A.J. Cockrell, and especially, Thibodeaux. Each will need to add 15 to 25 lbs, but I think that they can both add the weight in their first two years. I'm confident that both will see playing time as freshmen. I'm not sure why Thibodeaux asked for a release from his letter with the AFA, but I can't rant enough about how happy I am to see that their loss was our gain. From what I've seen on the kid, he looks like he's ready to play at the mid-major level right now.

    This is the type of class that UTSA needs to sign every year. We should be to the point, very soon, where we don't sign any junior college players.

    I would like to see the following line up for the first game in Nov (assuming that each has proven themselves):
    C - Lucas O.
    F - Garrett T.
    F - P. Jones
    G - T. Bowie
    G - C. Wilson

    I don't yet know if someone has left the team, or if one of the J.C. players will not be on the team. As soon as I know something though, I will post it.

    It is not a JC player that has not come aboard; George Matthews has left the team. This coincides with the rumors from the late spring that he would leave the team. I have no word about to where he went, or if he is still going to continue to play ball.
