Every year we seem to outdo the previous year in terms of pulling in recruits.  I just hope we can retain Oats long term.
So, thunder through, Go Blue! Give a Cheer, never fear!

Beating Syracuse to a kid from Rochester is extremely huge. I can't wait to see him play for the Bulls.

Great get for UB! 

Congrats to Jeenathan and the coaching/recruiting staff.    Another solid UB addition. 

The quality of basketball players UB has been able to attract these last five years has been so much improved.  The bench depth is just so much better as well. 

I am excited to see how the returning players take on leadership roles...and how the younger/newer guys fit in.

Go Bulls.
The State University of New York. 

Blue. White. Damn Right.

The Subject Line is actually misleading.  He has only verbally committed to UB.  It is not a signing period right now.

UB also had Ronaldo Segu on campus this weekend for his official visit. Another 3/4 star kid, PG with a host of offers and a seriously insane dribble. He is active on Twitter and retweeted Jeenathan's commitment, also liked a bunch of tweets about it. Supposedly UB is one of the front runners to land him.

Segu churns out highlight videos like nobody's business. He'd be a DJ Cooper-esque star in the MAC.

Segu would be a great add, a nice replacement next year for Clark. I'd almost guarantee they use it on a PG.

Was mentioned in the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. See article here:

Seemed like that was in the works. Great news!

Nice to get Segu as well.  Depending on what our roster looks like at the end of the summer, is it reasonable to assume both will play as Freshman?

Man...the talent level has really taken a step up these past few years.  Kudos to the coach and his staff.

Go Bulls.

I’d assume at minimum Segu does because Clark will be gone and he’d probably be the best true PG we have. Williams is more of a question as Clark is the only one graduating so somebody would have to be moved out of the lineup but I think Williams is too talented to not start, we may move to a small ball lineup and not start ikenna/brock but go Segu, Massinburg, Harris, Williams, Perkins. We’ll see how this year plays out first though haha.

I wouldn't overlook Graves, either....another possible option at either guard spot.
