Well, I think Huggins, Chuha, and Jemerrio Jones will return. I suspect AJ Harris will stick it out. Jans coached VanVleet so that has to intrigue Harris a little. Wilkins might stay if he doesn't try to graduate early. Same goes for Pennie. The one player I am hoping Jans can get through to is LJ Figueroa. He could be really good.
Maybe a way to get the recruits he was pursuing here to go to UNM instead. I hope they see through his sneaky, underhanded tactics-not a coach I'd want to play for. It would be awesome if Bopp stays and is able to outmaneuver Weir for our planned commits.
Pretty sure he will put provisions on Neals player's that they can't sign with a program on their schedule. Just like we should on ours that may want to leave.
Boston called the return to the NCAA tournament "a first step" toward the goal he and Theus talked about in Atlanta two years ago. "We talked about winning a national championship, not about getting into the NCAA tournament," Boston said.

Well our former coach just released all of Neal's signees. A couple of big men among them. Possible pick ups if we lose guys?
I was thinking pretty much on the same terms. I was hoping the Traitor would keeping those Neal's signees on his UNM roster for next season. It would have limited him on the amount scholarships he had available to poach away our current signees and prospects he and Bopp were working on while at NMSU. If Bopp stays on at NMSU, hopefully he can circumvent the Traitor's recruiting plans. When we last left our recruiting situation, NMSU was known to be recruiting JCs; Corey Davis, Chris McNeal, Vance Johnson, Dante Thorpe, and Jeromy Rodriguez. Since then Davis and Johnson have signed with other programs. Also, NMSU offered a scholarship to Akron transfer Antino Jackson. And, their was still questions on HS prospect Chris Duarte's recruiting status. If Bopp doesn't return, all those recruits are probably lost to NMSU and "maybe" signees Gabe Hadley, Tyree Robinson, and Jachai Simmons as well. LJ Figueroa is already on campus so Jans has a real chance at keeping him. Now if Bopp returns, the Traitor will need to battle with Bopp for the available players mentioned (in BOLD) plus others Aggie fans are not privy to knowing.
