No players should get complacent on this team. Every year grad transfers and new highly rated freshmen should be coming in trying to steal your playing time.

At this point I guess it depends on what is considered adequate and/or above average.  As it stands right now he is a career 35% 3 point shooter (31-88).  What trumps what- his outstanding shooting from last year or abysmal shooting this year. 

Throwing out recency bias Sills at a MINIMUM needs to shoot 33% or better for this season from this point forward if we hope to make the NCAAT and for him to not be a detriment to our offense in the way Harris was last year in that we played 4 on 5 with no threat to shoot from outside

Also- Sills is also averaging the second most turnovers on the team with the worst assist to turnover ratio amongst our guards.  Thatís not really helping his cause for those saying he is doing some many ďother thingsĒ for us
Maybe you should watch some games. He made several big plays against Tech that were key in getting out of there with the win.  Thinking basketball is all about scoring when the character of this team is defense?  Like I said, watch the games.

Desiís shot just isnít falling right now.  Heís never been known to be a prolific scorer anyway.  Always a defense first, assist kinda guy.  His shots will start falling, I just hope itís sooner than later.  If walker comes here I think he would become first guy off the bench before he becomes a starter.

We need Walker because we don't know how long Mason will be out.
It's not an affront to any of our players.
We need the help and depth.

The 3 is still not falling for Desi, but it is undeniable he's one of the better players on the team. Hope his stroke comes back soon. Him getting to the rack and finishing today was HUGE.

With no Daniel Gafford or Conner Vanover patrolling the interior the opponents are cheating towards the perimeter.

And, as long as this works to keep UA in check teams will continue to use it. Not sure we even need the "big" as much as a true dribble-penetrator. Maybe I am missing on that one.

KW would give us four nice offensive option. Desi finding his shot makes five.

I think your twisting things.  No one is saying that you donít add Walker.  The discussion is how much value would be bring.  Of course you add five stars to your team. 
It would be very hard for him even with all of his talent to step from HS to college with no training camp, learn the offense / defense and make an immediate impact.  Role player yes, but CEM doesnít give things to players they earn it.

I thought I post this question yesterday but I canít find it so maybe I didnít finalize the post as I donít see a reason it might have been deleted...

Does Bells walk-in role mean we might have heard Walkers intentions or could Walker still come with Bell as Walk-on?

Maximum of 13 scholarship players. Walk-ons have no effect on that. Still have an open scholarship spot.

. Desi is much more to this team than a 3 point shooter, reminds me of Corey Beck a little he is solid

Dang, this seems like good news coming our way.  The Itís time thing may be a coincidence but I donít think so considering heís been retweeting everything Hog related and making comments about our commits.  What would be the earliest he could get on campus if he does indeed come?

Thats a good question. I assume he wouldnt be able to play till the new semester starts, but could maybe start practicing sooner?

I always thought they could start playing as soon as the 1st semester ended. You didnt have to wait for the 2nd to start.

You could be right, I don't really know.  I can't remember a situation like this where a kid started playing after the first semester, without having been at least enrolled in that first semester.

Ponderin beat me to Joe Johnson as an example. Also, seems like Tennessee had a big man we were coveting join in December a couple of years ago.

If someone will refresh my memory.

It would sure be nice to get him some game time before conference kicked off.  Looks like the last finals are 12/19.  If he can be on campus in game shape, and working out with the team prior to that then he could possibly see time vs. Valpo or IU before conference play starts.  That would be about 2 1/2 weeks before we play TAMU on 1/4/20.  The front end of the conference slate is relatively soft with the first four opponents being:  TAMU, @LSU, @OM, and Vandy.  Those road games will be tough, but the two home games should be W's if we show up.  If we can get him meshed into the team and in shape, he could really play a big part from UK on back in the schedule.  Hopefully his conditioning is already on point.

There really is nothing new here. The family is still saying he's a week or two away from announcing a Top 4, that he'll definitely visit Arkansas, and that he's still working on completing requirements to finish HS -- ALL of which has been said going back to late August / early September when school started back.

I will add that with the open scholarship available that could be filled by mid-term -- whether it's Walker, a different HS re-class, or via the transfer portal -- look for Arkansas to potentially add somebody. Remember, a transfer will not be able to play this season.

I would be extremely disappointed in Eric Musselman if he adds a player possibly under investigation for violence against women and I expect the administration would step in and disallow it.

Thankfully, I think Musselman as a husband and a father wouldn't even consider it.
