Who knows- lots of very strong offers, internet says Marquette getting involved. But I agree- would feel much better about our big man concerns with these two. Think he and White would be great gets.

All this recent activity makes me feel better. I was getting pretty annoyed at the staff for seeming to not care about the 5 open spots, if we can get these two and a tall (6’5+) guard or two things will look a lot better

Hopefully we can get an athletic 4 like Agee to pair with these guys (if we get them or course)

Agreed. Would love to land these two to shore up our front court for next year and the future. 

Combo forward (Agee or Rojas, for example).

Athletic wing guard.

PG or combo, preferably an incoming freshman to develop behind Jordan/Segu.

Don’t forget about Segu and Jeenathan (hopefully) having Davonta-like improvement, if we can land these two and then Agee that will be a very good class without all the high ️ ratings

Hopefully we can get someone that can play lockdown D to sub in when Davonta needs a breather

I think the fact that he took an official visit speaks volumes that we are being considered by him. So he may have 21 offers but only strongly considering however many. Hopefully he chooses us.

Did some research after watching his highlights and was wondering why this 6’10 dude that can hit 3’s, midrange J’s, and is athletic around the rim doesn’t have offers from some blue blood schools. His junior year of high school he went into full cardiac arrest on the court. Only had a 10% chance of living, no prior history of heart conditions in his family. He had surgery and doctors couldn’t figure out what caused it so they didn’t have enough evidence to say he should stop playing basketball.

Perhaps the uncertainty is keeping some schools at an arms length. But I’d gladly take a player that can score in every way that’s averaging 17.4 ppg, 16 rpg, and 3 blocks per game

Totally love this guys look and game.

These would be 2 great additions and make our bigs core nice for next season.

His offer list is not too shabby at all. 

Would feel pretty excited with this one.

Crazy story, maybe a fluke thing? especially for a healthy guy. I mean Poke for Akron had the same thing happen but not as bad as this. 

Man the way he hits the three and can play reminds me of the Hauser brothers

Based off Segus Instagram story, he was in attendance with the recruits for their trip to Niagara Falls

Reminiscent of how we ended up with Justin Moss, and that turned out well for us (on the court lol).

And Watt, though he had a different medical issue.

Really would love this guy... imagine getting a recruit that has an offer from Texas Tech, Nebraska and Marquette? Seems like a new level for us, which is something I didn’t think I was going to be able to say after this past years success...

Skogman is visiting Utah St on Wednesday. Let's hope we're working hard on this one, the interest/competition is definitely there from other teams!

Looking at their roster it looks like they already have 3 young centers. Hopefully the openness of the position here plays a role.

Skogman doesn’t seem to be all that active on social media regarding his recruiting process, any idea how many more visits he has?

Interest from Wisc. and Marquette - Haven't heard of official visits to either yet.

Looks like Utah St. is visiting him rather than him going out there which may be a good sign. I also read that he's only been offered a preferred walk-on spot at Wisconsin.
