I'm not so sure about Shrewsberry's strategy here with all these one-year transfers from Lehigh, Bucknell, etc. I'm having flashbacks to year two of DeChellis when he brought in a bunch of Euros and they were all bad. (But in Ed's defense, one ended up becoming Chewbacca)

I agree, and at least these are one-year stopgaps. The game has changed since 2004-05, but back then Ed was grabbing the Euros out of desperation. I hope Shrewsberry sees an actual fit here and is not doing this because he lost on some recruits. I admit I don't really follow recruiting at all

He would add another dimension to the team. He does not the have the inside physical presence of Harrar even though he adds some length that provides some shot altering in the inside lane if not shot blocking. He does have a nice outside touch will could help clear out the lane for Pickett and whoever else emerges as someone who can take it inside.

Pick and pop 5. For what they may lose defensively probably an upgrade on offense if he comes

I go to most of Lehigh’s home games and have a positive view of Lynch. He always hustles, moves the ball well and can hit the 3. Plus, he has improved each year. He will be a good complement to the young bigs. Let’s hope we get him.

Agree. Not impressed with Grad transfers from Drexel, Bucknell, and possibly Lehigh. I guess that’s the best Shrew can do but let’s hope the frosh season fast because it could be a long year if not.

Hoping it's just a one-year thing to fill out minutes. I know things are much different now, with the transfer portal, but I'm having flashbacks to things that Ed tried early on, and failed miserably. Of course, it is not fair to Shrew to compare him with Ed. Shrew learned from much better coaches than Ed was ever around

Big difference between an 18 year old euro with very limited data points playing against real high school completion and going after multi year starters at the college level. Plus one year guys so don’t limit schollies for multiple years like Ed’s gambles did. So not even close in my mind as a comparison.

Those teams have all went to the NCAA more than PSU? Shrews knows what he is doing…at least it appears so to date.

Since I retired I have been volunteering with Lehigh's Athletic Department. I will be there today and will try to get some scoop.

Couple years ago a big kid named Nate Sestina transferred from Bucknell to Kentucky and was a starter until he broke his wrist. Starting at Kentucky....pretty damned good.

I think these two portal guards have good resumes, and should serve to allow the fr. Guards to mature some before they get tossed in. I like it.
Now, 2-3 big men between portal and the next recruiting class.

I did talk to two staff members, they did not know anything about Lynch's plans. One guy was very high on the transfer from Bucknell. He said he is a real play maker and has a nice shot.

Where else are they going to come from? Certainly not Duke or North Carolina.
