Talking recruiting with Eric Hoffses


Although most of the big names are committed elsewhere, Jim Christian's new staff is working hard to find a player or two who can make an impact next season. To get a better feel for what to expect, I asked Eric Hoffses for a quick update on Christian's recruiting. Here's what he said:

Eric Hoffses: There aren't a lot of guys left in 2014. Probably the biggest target remaining that the new staff is going after is Idrissa Diallo. He originally signed with Cal but requested a release with their coaching change.

Diallo is kind of opposite of what Donahue looked for in big men in that he lacks offensive skills right now. The positives are that he is long and athletic and an above average defensive player. He's fast for his size too. There's lots of upside with him.

Diallo is visiting, but I think its more realistic the new staff will find a 5th year transfer that can make an impact for next year rather than an incoming recruit that can make an impact.

Given Hoffses last recruiting report where I think he said Kaleb Joseph was a realistic recruit, and he didn't have us in his top 3 (or 5 maybe), we'll take this analysis with a grain of salt.

Why not go for a H.S. recruit if he's good and a good fit AND a 5th year senior eligible to play immediately. Still have to address leveling scholarships.

If he's good enough for CAL, he's good enough for us. Sign him up.
