Today in the Morning Rumble, head coach Steve Fisher reels in a transfer, Wenyen Gabriel has a new mixtape out, Barry Alvarez won't force Bo Ryan out and Harry Giles has a new number one ranking.
The San Diego State Aztecs need all the scoring they can get and on Thursday night, Steve Fisher's team landed Missouri transfer Montaque Gill-Caesar. The four-star prospect out of Huntington Prep averaged 9.1 per game and dropped 21 points in his first game against UMKC.
Gill-Caesar will provide wing depth behind Trey Kell, Matt Shrigley and Jeremy Hemsley.
If you want to find the summer's biggest riser, look no further than 2016 recruit Wenyen Gabriel, who jumped from the edge of ESPN's top 100 rankings to number 23 on the list. While Gabriel was recently being courted by his home school of New Hampshire and local Big East school, Providence, the 6'9" athlete now has offers from high-quality top major programs including Duke and Kentucky.
Here's Gabriel's new mixtape for his dominant 2015 summer.
Wisconsin AD Barry Alvarez said he will not pressure Bo Ryan into retirement. The legendary coach said this offseason that he was retiring following the 2015-16 season but later backtracked on the comment saying he didn't know when he wanted to end his career. He also said he could coach another "four or five more years."
But yes, I agree with Alvarez: There is no way to push this coach out the door.
Iona 2.0? Alabama head coach Avery Johnson said that his Crimson Tide squad will try to "score in five seconds." They must be really fit for that to work against talented SEC opponents.
Indiana President Michael McRobbie is not too pleased with the recent off-the-court activities from the school's student-athletes, in particular the men's basketball players. Earlier this week, junior Emmitt Holt and freshman Thomas Bryant were cited for illegal possession of alcohol.
That wasn't the first incident that has happened in the past two years though. Holt was involved in an incident (with a car and alcohol) that seriously hurt former Hoosiers player Devin Davis. Stanford Robinson and Troy Williams were suspended for the start of the season last year for marijuana. Add on that Robinson and Yogi Ferrell were arrested for attempting to use false IDs and there's a clear indication of why the President is upset.
ESPN updated their recruiting rankings for the class of 2016 and Harry Giles is ranked number one overall. Giles is considering Wake Forest, Duke, North Carolina, Kansas and Kentucky.
