    I’m sure DeVries knows what the kid can do, but why only 6 games @ WSU?

    now that college sports has gone pro with schools openly bidding for players, it’s quickly time to accept,,get rid of non revenue sporst, maybe keep soccer and wresling, and of course keep fB , BB an baseball ,,, sorry it’s now a prof. org, and profit makeing situation. so good bye to all the girls sports unlessthey make money,, we just won’t be able to compete with the big name schools…andmaybe can’t anyway,, Day of OSU, wants 13 million dollars a yr just to remain competitive,, can we compete,, don’t think at that level

    Sounds to me like a backup option – Maybe like the rough equivalent to Seth Wilson🥹💁‍♂️

    again, let’s face it,,, small isn’t coming,, now , move on, make sure ,now, that we have a good point guard on the team,,this new guy is always hurt,and it’s probably a wasted scholarship,,, but , imo, we need to focus on a good big man, and a good point guard,, we let some good players that was on the team last yr, get away from us and we probably will have to fill their slots with lessor players,,
