Happy to see this. He should be at least 6-10 by his sophomore year. We need another big coming in.

Played AAU for Team Thad this season...same team as Trace Young.

As for the scholarships. This fills the "one vacant" one for next year. Obviously if Zion wants to commit we will find a scholarship for him. With Copeland still on the official roster, we have zero scholarships remaining for next year. Keep in mind, Chastain is also expecting a scholarship with the understanding he has to earn it.

Start preparing now for potential defects next year. (This should go without saying every year moving forward.)

Would Copeland be on the official roster seeing that the NCAA has ruled him ineligible to play or accept a scholarship or do any training with the team he is basically a ISU student

Not if he's eligible as a frosh and doesn't do a year of prep school . . . not to mention getting sent home from Spain, being suspended more than once . . .

6'9 190 pounds. Hopefully he can beef up a little bit.

Yeah, he needs another 10 lbs just to be as thin as Phil Fayne...well it's all you can eat in the dorms!

That's what I was thinking .... Demontay = Deontae.

Sounds like similar skill set. Now just need to add some weight, which it sounds like they are confident he will.
