1) How many 2020 basketball players do you think we will sign this spring? – GretnaHokie

Chris Coleman: As of right now, here are the players eligible to return for next season, including the two November signees.  The year of eligibility indicates their class for the 2020-21 season…

G Wabissa Bede (Sr.)
F PJ Horne (Sr.)
F Keve Aluman (r-Jr.)
G Isaiah Wilkins (Jr.)
G Jonathan Kablongo (r-So.)
G/F Landers Nolley (r-So.)
G Tyrece Radford (r-So.)
G Hunter Cattoor (So.)
G Jalen Cone (So.)
G Nahiem Alleyne (So.)
C John Ojiako (So.)
G Joe Bamisile (Fr.)
G Darius Maddox (Fr.)

That’s 13 players, which is the scholarship limit.  That means to sign more players this April, the Hokies will have to have some attrition. 

GCHokie34 had a very good post about what could happen after the season with regards to the spring signing period.  Click here to read it.  He’s certainly correct about it being likely that anywhere from one to three spots will come open.  There is always attrition in college basketball.  The only question is, how much?

I’m not basing this next part on any inside info…just a gut feel. My gut feel is that one or two guys will leave, but not three.  Those one or two players are likely to come from the guard position, considering Joe Bamisile is coming in next year.  I don’t often speculate on which players are transferring, unless I hear something I consider concrete.  But generally speaking, it’s the guy or guys who are playing the least (or not at all) at the most overcrowded position on the team.
