Jalen Tate on NKU went to Pickerington when Nelson was in 10th grade.

I know the decent thing to do is let the athlete out of their LOI when a coach leaves, especially when the athlete hasn't enrolled in school yet. The LOI is binding contract with the school, not the coach. Personally, I think they should play where they want under these circumstances, but we may need him. :twisted:

A school cannot limit where the player goes:
To get a release from the National Letter of Intent, you must use the release form on the NLI website. After you fill out your section of the form, you send a copy of the form to two places: your school’s athletic department offices and to the NLI offices at the NCAA Eligibility Center. Once you send the form, the athletic department must respond within 30 days. There are three options for them to respond:

1. No release – This means you are not released from the NLI and all of its provisions are still in effect.
2. Complete release – This means you are released from all of the NLI’s provisions.
3. Removal of the recruiting ban – This means the recruiting ban is lifted, but the NLI penalty is still in effect if you do not fulfill the NLI.

NLI releases cannot be school-specific, like permission to contact. So you cannot be released to one school but not another. Because of this, many schools will first remove the recruiting ban, but may not grant a complete release until the school knows where an athlete plans to transfer.

If a release is not granted, a student-athlete has 30 days to appeal to the NLI Policy and Review Committee (rather than to a group at the school). If the student-athlete losses that appeal, there is a second appeal to the NLI Appeals Committee. Each appeal takes approximately six to eight weeks to get a decision.

It seems that the general practice nowadays is to release a recruit from an LOI when the coach leaves. I think being known as a college that doesn't do that is not desirable.

I also seem to recall that restrictions on transferring are generally conference rules rather than NCAA rules. I bet Commish knows this.

To me the worst fallout from the Bacari firing is the impact on our roster (both current players and recruiting class) and trying to fill the vacancies.

Totally agree with you point on the negative impact to a team's roster when the head coach is fired.

If our new coach can convince Chatman and Allen to remain at UDM and BJ Simmons (verbal commit), Cory Hightower (signed LOI), and Jesse Barnes (recent offer) formally sign and enroll .... we'll start the 2018-19 season with a decent roster.

Isn't there a posting somewhere that Corey Allen is going to EMU?

Commish posted on the other board that Khalil Chatman committed to Pacific. Something tells me that in the normal ruin of things we wouldn't be missing much there. Next year, however, we could use anyone with coordination. :)

I guess we will be forced to hold tryouts for walk-ons come September. Perhaps some of the Marygrove players still have eligibility? We should really hire a head coach.

Maybe Brundidge got that 9th year of eligibility approved.

At this point I just hope we hire the right coach. I still like Lou Dawkins the best of the names bandied about, however, I'm open to whomever is selected. It's funny but lately I thought we should give Kevin Mondro strong consideration. After all, Izzo was an unknown assistant coach. Lots of times, it's guys like that who turn out to be a good coach. He has 20 years experience as an asst coach and this past year he was named associate head coach at Eastern Mich. Besides, EMU has grown as a program the past few years after some lean years, both record-wise and attendance-wise. He was also an assoc. head coach at UD and interim head coach when Perry left.

Since there was some talk of Andy Bronkema as a candidate for the Titan job, thought I would report on Ferris State University men's basketball just-announced spring signees.

The Bulldogs signed prep wings Carl Bow (Hazel Park) and D'Juan Seal (Detroit/Pershing) along with junior college All-American Walt Kelser (Walled Lake Central/Schoolcraft CC).

Bow averaged 20 points and six rebounds per contest this past season. He earned consensus all-state accolades from the Detroit News, Detroit Free Press and Bank Hoops. A first-team All-Oakland Activities Association pick, he was also named to both the Detroit Free Press and Detroit News All-Metro North squads and was a 1,000 point scorer on the prep level. He posted a career-high 40 points in a single game, led his squad to an 18-3 overall record and has been tabbed as the state's #3 combo player and #22 overall standout by Inside Prep Sports. He was also ranked among the state's top 40 players by Prep Hoops.

Seal averaged 18.3 points along with six rebounds and three assists for Detroit Pershing High School under head coach Wydell Henry. A first-team All-Detroit Public School League (PSL) honoree, the 6-4 Seal was also chosen as an all-state choice by the Detroit Free Press, Detroit News and Bank Hoops. He led Detroit Pershing to a PSL runner-up finish and claimed All-Detroit recognition as one of the city's top players. He was listed as the state's #4 small forward and #24 prospective recruit in the class of 2018 by Inside Prep Sports. Additionally, he was tabbed by Prep Sports as the #23 standout in this year's class.

The 6-0 Kelser tallied 21 points, 3.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.7 steals this past year for Schoolcraft Community College. He earned National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) First Team All-America accolades and was an All-Region XII First Team pick. This season, he was chosen as the Michigan Community College Athletic Association (MCCAA) Eastern Conference Player of the Year and also earned first-team All-MCCAA kudos in addition to being named to the District 10 All-Tournament Team. As a sophomore this year at Schoolcraft CC, Kelser ranked 18th in the country in scoring average and totaled 39 points in a single game. He led his squad to a 23-8 overall mark. Kelser is the nephew of Greg Kelser, a former Michigan State All-American and NBA veteran.

Previously, FSU added four prep signees during the fall signing period.

Recruiting guru Steve Bell has tweeted suggestions if/when the Titans get a coach:

“In-state offers for new U-D coach
1) Anthony Roberts: Priority No. 1, the kind of all-around Detroit guard who did so well for Perry Watson.
2) Cam Carpenter: Could score in Horizon like another Flintstone, Cam Morse.
3) Cass Phillips: Flyer on raw but athletic 6-9.”

In response, a state hoops coach offered another recommendation:

“Would also try to get involved with Anthony Crump, former UNC Asheville commit. Athletic wing who would provide length on the perimeter that Detroit hasn't had a WHOLE lot of. Good ball skills for size as well. Maybe even Jack Ammerman as a shooting specialist.”

Don’t know much about any of these guys, but good to read that there are still unsigned recruits out there. But times a wasting.

Seen Crump play a few times and he is a non-preferred walk-on, at best. He tried to play point guard as the tallest kid on the team but wasn't a great ball-handler. He had decent moves but wasn't a great shooter or finisher. I was shocked to hear he a D-1 offer. I am not sure what happened to UNC Asheville.

To clarify, there is no UDM offer to Crump, he was just someone’s suggestion as a recruit the Titans might look at when they get a coach.

At this point; we'll need to consider ourselves very fortunate if we can keep Cory Hightower (LOI) and BJ Simmons (verbal commit) in the fold and get Jesse Barnes (scholarship offered on 3/23) to sign with UDM.

UNC-Asheville's head coach was hired by Middle Tennessee State to replace its head coach who took the HC job at Ole Miss. So, UNCA just hired a new head coach, Mike Morrell who was an assistant for Shaka Smart at Texas last year. Out with the old, in with the new.

BREAKING

Detroit Mercy has offered and received a commitment from 2018 PF Tagak Ugyuk from Iqaluit High School (Nunavut Territory). Ugyuk also held scholarship offers from Nunavut Arctic College, Greendale Community College, UDM's arch rival Houston Baptist, and held a discount for 25% off his first course at the University of Phoenix.

"Detroit Mercy just felt right. Plus, our internet sucks in Nunavut and I was worried I wouldn't be able to complete my assignments if I enrolled at Phoenix." Ugyuk told reporters through a translator.

"I'm really proud to bring Tagak to the Titan family," said Athletic Director Robert Vowels. "Everyone knows coastal Canadians are superior basketball players. But people forget there are THREE Canadian coasts. Now we have the trifecta in place and I'm confident our next coach will be in a position to compete for a Horizon League title."

When asked who the next coach of the Titans might be, Vowels answered, "Detroit Mercy does not provide public comment on internal personnel issues."

It doesn't appear that Bryce Washington has not made a decision on where he'll attend college .... hopefully our new head coach can convince him that UDM is a great place to be a student athlete. :)

Tony Paul reporting that B.J. Simmons is moving on from his commitment. It's just Tony Paul reporting though, so let's wait and see if it's even true.
