He is built pretty solid I would say.  Can tell he work on leg strength as part of his rehabs.  Average 20 some ppg, with assists, yeah, come on board.  Heck, he could be a star here, who knows.  We needed another guard.

I assume this closes recruiting for this coming year, but who knows for sure.

Re: Sincere Carry commits

Sincere Carry will be motivated by the D1 offer snub. Between him and Brandon Wade, I think we're looking at four years of the best PG play at Duquesne in years.

Agree with this. As I stated in an earlier post, given our big man issues this past season, I truly believe that the most important ingredient on a BB team is a point guard. Without a true PG, the ship has no rudder! So looking forward to having great improvement in both areas.

Looks to me like a potential under recruited gem ‘ a la Eric Williams, Jr. ‘

Re: Sincere Carry commits

There,\'s a lot of love out there for Carry. On an Ohio State fan forum they had a lot of posters who wanted him at Ohio State with a lot of praise from people who had watched him play. You would think with 13 scholarships some other teams would of took a chance on a player who had some past injuries. I'm glad we did. Of course if you check with some folks on the A10 board we're giving  out a couple more schollies than other teams.

Some people may not agree with me, but I loved his play for the jump ball in the first video. Much bigger player fought him for possession but he wouldn't  be denied the ball even after the whistle. Sure he got t'd up, and it was dirty but that showed a ton of competitivess and sends a message to the opponent.

Re: Sincere Carry commits

I agree with the Eric Williams comparison in terms of ability of this kid SC.  Kids do slip through the recruiting cracks sometimes because of injuries, personal/family issues etc. - it happens.  Welcome Sincere to the Bluff.  Here is a question though, doesn't the Spring signing period start next week?  If so, how can we announce his signing now?  This leads to my next question, is there a difference between an LOI signing and the signing of an "athletic scholarship agreement" as noted in the official announcement?

Re: Sincere Carry commits

Steve, you know my affinity for warriors. Guys who spend time on the floor, who challenge bigger opponents, who show toughness and grit.

Lacking one of those (pending a look-see at the transfers in action) I'm happy to get a kid like this.

I'm with you.

I agree.  He brings that "football toughness" to his game, one of the things I really liked about having Kellon Taylor on the team.

Re: Sincere Carry commits

Pete my understanding is that the Athletic Scholarship Agreement is the actual binding contract that specifies the actual scholarship amount and covered items.  I believe this just bypasses the LOI and goes right to the contract.  This also means the kid is counted towards the 13 scholarship limit.

Re: Sincere Carry commits

Thanks CLK, but what about the timing of the signing?  I thought a player could only sign during a "signing period", which I believe in this case wouldn't start until next week.  I am getting this wrong?

Re: Sincere Carry commits

I like the fact that Sincere already has a D-1 frame.  He looks like he is built for the toughness of the A-10.  Having a high compete level is nice, but having the strength to back it up will help.  He reminds of the guard from Davidson a few years ago; not Curry, but Jack Gibbs; guy was very solidly built and an excellent player.

Not surprised by this, the ball handling talent and athleticism were two traits that jump out to me. You can tell he has a lot of tools and his numbers, especially in big games seem to speak for themselves.

I can see why he got overlooked however if he had two knee injuries, particularly if it was the same knee twice. Right or not, a lot of coaches probably looked at him as a guy who if he had another injury to the same knee, could realistically be a guy you end up carrying on scholarship for two or three years even if he can't play anymore. Hope he can stay healthy and fulfill the potential he seemingly has a lot of.

Seems like a great get for late in the process.  Excited to see what the revamped roster can do.

Still happy? I'm guessing yes.
