When is the signing period? We sure don't need the drama and disruption that would come with taking two commits with just one spot left (unless somebody already indicated they're going to leave). I wonder how well liked Schofield, Alexander, and Parker are since they are the most likely to be cut if two more are signed.

I'm on record as saying Schofield will transfer no matter what. He will go play elsewhere so there's one we won't have to worry about. Alexander & Parker will be safe in my opinion.

Several have emerged from the Barnes dog house. Mostella notably and Kwe seems to be emerging. It's really up to Schofield IMO. If he doesn't want to fill a needed role inside then he should move on. However by dropping to a lower level program, it would seem that he'd be needed inside even more. But he'd do better versus the smaller defenders. I really thought that being in a military family he'd work really hard at wherever his team needed him. I don't know if that's his M.O.

Bold above. Agree 100%.

Then why this post...

If you believe Schofield is gone, then we have room for Pons and Walker.

I can't see Parker leaving. Blows my mind you guys think that. He has a ton of potential. I hope we don't see another Wes Washpun happen.

He does have a ton of potential, but we have sort of a glut at the guard position, and he isn't really a true PG. If he does transfer out, I have to think it's because he believes he's the odd man out for minutes.

I'm probably the only poster that had mentioned Parker. I didn't say he's leaving, just that if Barnes was to sign three and has to cut a current player it's most likely going to be Schofield followed by either Alexander or Parker. A month ago it didn't appear that Parker was buying in. Alexander because he's maybe not progressing quickly. It was odd how little Kwe was seeing the court the weeks immediately following Bone's broke bone.

I think Bone'a return will tell us a lot about how the staff views Parker, Turner and Phillips...to me Turner has looked better off the ball, same for Phillips. If they go with Bone and Parker at PG I think there's enough minutes for them to be happy, if you see Turner or Phillips backing up Bone and Parker essentially out of the rotation then it could be something to watch.

Parker doesn't seem to be much of a threat from three. If he's not the best option at the backup point guard then he's adding very little on the offensive end. His defense needs to be outstanding in order to get minutes after Bone returns. It's probably a dog fight between Turner and Parker for minutes... Phillips seems to have earned his. Turner, although he has odd form, is the biggest threat to knock down 3s between himself, Phillips, and Parker.

That's exactly what I was driving at.

Finished up his visit and headed out of town this morning, VQ seems to think the Vols lead but have also said they believe staff wants an answer from Yves Pons first. Said they don't believe staff will just take 2 and run someone off and no one at this point has indicated they're considering leaving, so...seems like Pons or Walker Jr. to finish out the '17 class.
