Jesse Bopp is probably the reason NMSU got LJ Figueroa but I have a feeling Marc Hsu is also involve with our JC recruiting. While he was at Bakersfield, they brought in some good Jucos... Basile, Pride, and Smith.
Well, according to Verbal Commits, Malik Ondigo removed NMSU (among others) from consideration. But NMSU is supposed to get a visit from Vance Johnson the weekend prior to National Signing Day (4/12/17).
Hopefully, Weir will fortify our center and point guard positions. AJ Harris is probably going to be the starter at point guard but his back up currently seems to be either Sidy Ndir or Jermaine Haley. Sidy's history of injuries probably justifies Weir finding an additional point guard option. And, as for the center position, John Wilkins in currently holding down that spot. But it is unclear if Wilkins will graduate this off-season and whether he chooses to remain an Aggie. He should see competition from Marlon Jones, Jemerrio Jones, and maybe Tyree Robinson for the starting spot next season. And, if NMSU happens to sign Vance Johnson, Wilkins could see his minutes reduce.
