Smith is a big (no pun intended) signing! Grand Canyon had a great season this year, and Smith played in all of their games. I'm excited! Seems like a good replacement for Javan.

seems a bit odd considering his numbers at GCU.....lots of DNPs in the second half of the season

If this transfer plays like this in his final year at ORU, then we will have a win/win for this recruiting season. However, Smith must have been hurt this past season or something was wrong. A legit 6'9 cannot be a bad thing for one year. Go Eagles!

This and 25 cents will get you a cup of coffee... can you buy a cup of coffee for 25 cents?

At least we aren’t last. Time will tell how this class performs.

Well in some of my post a couple months ago I said ORU was in good hands with Coach Mills and they were going to surprise people. I think it was ORUparent Lurker or OldTitan who mentioned the need to get players who are skilled and can play multiple positions. Well from what I BELEIVE I know that’s exactly what Coach Mills and staff did. They recrutited some highly skilled multiple position players. With that being said I predict a lot of 1 on 1 no help perimeter ball pressure because they have that type talent now. On the offensive end skilled players who can also run fast and jump high so running is what they will do. I’m confident predicting a top 3 finish in the Summit..

This will surely be the toughest year ever for TheEagleman to list an OVER/UNDER on wins.....it's going to be purely a stab in the dark.....but still 3 months to go before that number has to be set.....lots of research/guesswork still to do.....:wacko:

Look at the listed heights of the guards: 6’3”, 6’3”, 6’4”, and 6’5”.  If these are accurate heights it will be a welcome change to have some height at the guard position that could be beneficial both defensively and offensively.

The official team roster at oruathletics.com aligns with verbalcommits.  Eight newcomers on the thirteen man roster is a significant change. Coach Mills is definitely forming HIS team.

I can confirm that insiders are claiming the coaching staff is definitely intent on establishing a faster pace this season.  I'm hearing its all full court man defense in scrimmaging so far.  Maybe that is just a way to get everyone in shape... we shall see what happens when the lights come on.  It certainly appears the upgrade in talent across the board will give us a chance to see what Mills really wants to do.  He was hamstrung last season severely with all the guard transfers and injuries.
