    Good replies. I think one thing with D2 is there are a few recruiting models: as noted the SPU 4-year player model. I'm not sure all schools can pull that off, though I greatly admire them for doing so. Even some of their great teams had transfers -- Andy Poling of Gonzaga, WSU 6-8 guy, and so forth.

    The thing about D2 is I think the JC market is even more attractive now as D-1 is hitting the 4-year and grad transfer portal more. It makes more JC's available for D2. As I said, some of the guys NNU has been bringing in from the Arizona JC's are basically D-1 guys. All three I mentioned -- Arms, Migwa, Alley -- would start in the Big Sky, no problem, and Arms would be one of the conferences top players. (He's at D1 Winthrop now, betcha he starts next year.) There's solid JC talent in the Northwest; there's great JC talent in California and Arizona. With today's fluid roster changes (especially in D1), a D2 school can get good rather quick with transfers, look what Shabazz (Seattle prep player/Iowa JC player) did for UAF, he made them immediately relevant.

      Like most cities, Anchorage has “college or pro only invitational” runs a couple times a week. Lots of guys are in town and the games have been very competitive. I’ve been able to catch them a couple times. Keegan Crosby of UAA has looked really good, even when matched up against pro wings who he has held his own against. He can get to the rim or shoot it, also has a tendency to make the hustle play. At 6’6 and skilled, he could be a surprise player this year in the GNAC. Last year was sort of a lost year for him but has kept a good attitude, working hard and he is definitely one to watch out for.

        Cool stuff, I think UAA is loaded next year; GNAC should be very good, IMO. It would be fun to watch those summer games.
