Laquill Hardnett - 2019 signee

Recommended Posts

Both he and his high school teammate Anthony Higgs are in the protocol. Both of whom we recruited heavily.

Its almost like they made the wrong choice going for the biggest name instead of the best fit 🤔

You either really want to leave someplace or they really don’t want you anymore to transfer after a redshirt frosh year.  My guess is usually  the latter.  Start the clock, sit, now sit again.  2 years removed from any competitive ball...

Maybe he gets a wavier due to sitting out already and Cronin leaving

Someone commented on the reddit post that Hardnett followed a UB coach (presumably Jenkins) on Instagram last night

Would this mean he is eligible right away? Could Nigel John not be a sure thing maybe if we’re reaching out to Hardnett?

Says we have reached out to him, along with Michigan, George Washington and the Bonnies.

Michigan is the only team on that list that scares me. Can’t blame him if he went there. That’s a step up from Cincy. Although I think Howard is trying to fill a roster and once the next recruiting cycle ramps up he would look to have similar success as Penny has in terms of recruiting. Meaning if Hardnett goes to Michigan, in a year or two he would be passed by incoming highly touted recruits. While if he comes here he’d be a fixture his whole career.

It's an interesting scenario for sure. Yeah he picked the big name school over us the first time, so he could easily do it again. But maybe he didn't love sitting out last year at Cincy and decides he'd rather take the (pretty much) guaranteed minutes here over possibly riding the pine again at Michigan?

As Bill mentioned, who knows what this means regarding Nigel John. Assuming Hardnett would be able to play immediately though, I'd be thrilled to get either of these guys to fill out our roster.

Not a bad option at all would make us more versatile, we definitely have to fill this last spot with a big man who is eligible to play this coming year. Skogman the only true big man, and I just don’t trust Bertram for any significant minutes so this last spot is really important and will definitely get good amount of minutes.

Twitter scuttlebutt is that Cinci will waive his transfer (making him immediately eligible)

We were his 2nd choice last year, hopefully Oats wasn't the main reason we were that high on his list.

Not that my opinion matters, we are a great choice even with Oats departure.  Would be nice to wrap up the 2019-2020 team.

Technically, Oats' departure is the only reason we could be a choice at all now for Hardnett. Likely wouldn't have had an open scholarship otherwise. 😄 Seriously, can't say enough about the new staff bringing in the type of class they have so far, and yes this would wrap it up nicely.

I can confirm that Harnett has committed to UB.

Their 4th best recruit of all time, tied with his running mate, Skogman

Welcome Laquill! This turned out to be a very exciting class for UB.

Can’t really ask for much more than what the coaching staff has done in the offseason. They worked hard and have completely turned a bleak situation into a promising one. We certainly have one talented roster for next season.
