Coach Brannen had signed three guys:
6-5 SF Marcus Domask
5-11 PG DJ Roberston
6-8 PF Josh Early
All three went elsewhere when Coach Brannen took the UC job (Domask to Southern Illinois, Robertson to Florida Atlantic, and Early to Tulsa). Plus obviously the Norse lost big man Chris Vogt to UC as well.
I wasn't sure that Coach Horn would be able to salvage anything of this recruiting class (and who knows if he really has or not); however, he did manage to sign two players this week.
6-6 Wing Adham Eleeda (a juco transfer with 2 years of eligibility remaining out of Canada)
6-8 PF John Harge (from Colorado)
Who knows how good either are, but I think we can be optimistic about both and being able to contribute right away.
Eleeda obviously has couple of years of juco experience, shot 42% (had 16 games where he drained at least 4 three pointers) from behind the arc last season, and was recruited by Portland, Kent State, Bryant (Portland and Bryant are terrible programs, but Kent State had a good season).
Harge looks like an athletic big man, who can shoot a little. He was offered by Tulsa and IUPUI.
Again, who knows how good they are, but they look to have the potential to be pieces we can work with this year.
