View Full Version : New word on possible assistant coaches or recruits?

Does anybody know who might become some of Tony Shaver's assistant basketball coaches? Does anybody know the current status of any of our recruits; is anybody close to signing with the Tribe?

I found this article on the DP website this morning. Things are not looking good in the short-term.

This quote in particular was disappointing:
"...but the two remaining targets of W&M's former staff - all-metropolitan Dallas area forward Mike Milton and Memphis guard Marcus Hammond - said that as of Tuesday night, they had not been contacted by Shaver or anyone from W&M."
Shaver has hired his first assistant, but he should be concentrating on getting the recruits first, I think. He can hire assistants all summer long.

Give him a few days...that story ran on Tuesday, just three days after he was hired. By now (Friday) he may very well have contacted the two recruits.
I also note he expects all his players back, so perhaps the earlier email on the W&M page that last season's freshman star was leaving was incorrect. Shaver's statement indicates he has spoken to all his inherited players.
