    See 2 possibilities,CB is gone .Unlikely but possible,Besides academics he has a bad knee. But if he were wouldn’t Reed go for a Forward?

    Glover is not on scholarship.

    Any other possibilities?

    I’m not certain of anything but I heard from a reliable source a while back that Dr. Reed agreed to honor KM’s scholarship. I understand that it would not count against the NCAA limit. I have never felt however that it didn’t count against the Lehigh limit.
    Just conjecture.

    This makes me think that Glover is indeed a walk-on AND we have the full NCAA allotment of 13 scholarships. That would make the roster next year look like:

    Sr: Stefan, Corey, Conroy
    Jr: Devon, Justin Jesse,
    So: Austin, Miles, Tim, Shane, John Ross (walk-on), Cole (walk-on), Georgios (walk-on)
    Fr: Kahron, Tyler, Brandon

    Not including John Ross and the guys we know are walk-ons that is 13.

    The interesting thing about Alston is that he must have reclassified back a year when entering Middleburg Academy.
    ’11-’12 was shown as his freshman year and ’12-’13 as hi sophomore year so he will only have 3 years of HS basketball.
    Here are his stats for the 1st 2 years.

    Side note: Brandon is a McDonald’s All-American nominee this year.

    Can anyone provide additional info about Khalid McCaskill who was identified as a preferred walk-on for LU in a tweet last night. Based on videos that are out there he definitely has game. I’m just not sure if I have that right – or when he would be eligible if transferring from UCLA.

    I know he was scheduled to visit PSU. As a WO he could certainly come to LU. ! yr rule applies I assume like with JRG. His twitter is locked so I have found no word about a transfer to LU either way. Interesting tho. Can he rebound? :)

    Here is UCLA’s writeup on him.

    http://www.uclabruins.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=30500&ATCLID=207913827

    Interesting note:He has an 82″ wingspan.

    I’m not sure if the one year rule applies. He did not play last year as a red shirt.
