    Well it’s June 1st and every team in the conference has between 12 and 17 players for next season. Except UAA who has just 9 and UAF who had just 7 (according to VC). I know they both have to have plenty of scholarship money available.

    UAA in particular is usually long wrapped up by now but I’ve heard nothing on them in weeks, since the interesting Sawyer Storms signing. Generally you can find offers that have been made on social media and such but it’s been pretty radio silent with both those teams.

    Not sure why the Alaska teams are seemingly struggling recruiting wise this offseason but I’m starting to get a little worried about next season.
    Sparling tends to recruit the Seattle area Junior College market and find some pretty good players there. I'm guessing he will do that this summer.

    UAA should find some good players. They have a great facility and a great City I would think it would be attractive to some guys.

    Just on what I know, so far Western Oregon hasn't lost any players or gained any. I'm not sure that's a good thing. They really struggled last year, though I'm more of an old school guy who thinks school should be loyal to players and players should be loyal to schools. I know that's quite out of fashion today.

      Verbal Commits seems to be ignoring my messages. But two new players for SPU in Skagit Valley College transfer DJ Clark and Bellevue College transfer Maui Sze. Last season Sze started all 30 games and averaged 15.8 ppg and 4.7 apg. Clark is an interesting recruit who only averaged 0.8 points in 5.3 minutes per game, riding the bench for 2 years on a loaded Cardinals team.

      CWU is adding Eastern Wyoming transfer Quincy Taylor, who averaged 13.7 ppg last season.

        Verbal Commits got back to me. They say they fell behind. Their website should be up to date now for the GNAC.

        Some big news out of CWU, but Montana transfer Freddy Brown III is heading to Ellensburg. He played 3 seasons over 4 years for the Griz, but never seemed to live up to his hype out of high school. He only played in 30 games in those 3 seasons, only averaging 5 minutes per game. He still has 2 seasons left as a grad transfer thanks to COVID, so plenty of time for breakout play. He did win a national title at Nathan Hale, playing alongside the Porter bros and PJ Fuller on a loaded team. Then he was the only returner the following season and averaged nearly 29 ppg.

          Surprised Seattle Pacific is getting JC guys usually they build from the preps on up. The guy who averaged 0.8 points a game is just not going to be a factor in D2 ball no matter how good his JC team was. The other guy sounds pretty good.

          Nice pickup for the Wildcats in getting Freddie Brown if he still has it.

            Man there are some weird signings in the GNAC.

            I am not a proponent of D1 drop downs, but I counted like 400+ D1 players in the transfer portal. If you are going to roll the dice on a JC or D2 kid that didn’t play…why not make it a D1 kid who didn’t play? Seems like a higher upside if nothing else.

                UAF and UAA each landed a commitment from guards from winning programs in the California community college ranks.

                UAF lands point guard Brain Nguyen from San Jose CC. 8 pts 5 ast 3 reb 2.5 stls and a near 40% 3 point shooter from a team that went 22-7 last season. Looks like a do everything guard that can help you win in multiple ways.

                UAA lands 6'3 guard Dathan Satchell from Las Positas college, who went 27-4. 14 pts per game, 43% shooter from three (7 attempts per game) with the ability to create his own shot from the clips I saw of him. With games of 31, 30, 28, 25 and 23 last season, he will have some nights where he takes over offensively and scores more than normal.

                  The UAA guy sounds great, should be an immediate contributor.

                    I think UAA needs a couple forwards . They have some scorers but they are small right now. The two big men they have returning are talented but unproven after sitting without much PT behind Oggie last year. So need those guys to step up big this year plus the previously signed Sawyer who probably sees some minutes at the 4.

                    Redshirt Jr guard Tyson Gilbert, who sat out last season with an ACL injury, from what I hear looks great and could be a serious breakout candidate this coming season.

                    We will see what happens with their last couple signings but hoping for a couple more 6’6, 6’7 guys.

                      UAF sign 6’0 combo guard out of D3 Puget Sound, Paul Johnson. Johnson averaged 18 a game last year as a sophomore, shooting 43% from 3. Sounds like a guy who had great success at a lower level that showed he was ready to move up in competition level.

                        And he prepped at O'Dea, probably playing with Paulo Banchero. Should be an immediate impact player.

                            UAA signs 6’2 Grad Transfer guard (2 years eligibility) Lachlan Viney. Played 2 years at Hawaii Pacific where he was a Pac West All-Conference player as a Sophomore in 20-21, averaging 12 pts 3 ast and shooting 46% from the field. Viney did not play in 21-22.
