I thought McCaskill deserved his own thread instead of sharing the same thread with Alston.
Someone mentioned, I think it was OldHoopsGuy, that they believe they heard Reed talking to McCaskill in a video segment. With transfer rules as they are, McCaskill would be eligible to practice this semester and next fall before becoming eligible to play games next spring semester (2015). I believe Bison137 mentioned this, but since McCaskill never played in a game at UCLA this season, there is a chance he could petition to become eligible in fall of 2014 instead of spring 2015. No idea on the likelihood of this happening, but I do believe it is on the table as a possibility.
I do liked the idea of getting more long/athletic on the wing next year with the addition of McCaskill/JRG/Alston. It will be very interesting to see how playing time pans out for the two transfers (McCaskill & JRG) and a spring signing (Alston) that came out of nowhere.January 22, 2014 at 3:17 am #13223
My thoughts on this goes in 2 directions.
1.)Both SW and AP will need to show improvement in order to keep their minutes. The former still seems lost while the latter stills has the same one dimensional game he had in HS. 70% of his shots are from 3, with less than 3 shots/g coming from inside the arc. They are both young and I’ll expect to see improvement.
2.)My other thought is that with all the flexibility at the wing next season, Coach may move CS back to the point for the senior leadership. MS & KR will then have to fight it out for the other minutes and the lead role the following year.
Just a thought.June 5, 2014 at 8:46 pm #14481
I got semi-formal confirmation today that KM will be available in the fall. Apparently, not playing last year got him off the hook with the transfer rules.

He was mentioned today in article on site along with CB as being available to play this next season.June 6, 2014 at 11:10 am #14486
Todd, interesting because I was told when he arrived last winter that he has to miss this upcoming fall and only eligible for spring….will be interesting to watch and to see if he has anything to contribute.June 6, 2014 at 1:55 pm #14487
From the very recent article on the Lehigh website….
The Mountain Hawks will officially welcome transfer Khalid McCaskill to the program after he was around the team, but battled injuries, in the spring.
It appears that he won’t be available until 2nd semester.June 6, 2014 at 2:46 pm #14488
Ha! We need grammar police! I just realized we read the same line, and read it completely differently. I read that sentence as “he battled injuries in the spring”, and I think you’re reading it as “will welcome him in the spring”. Definitely subject to interpretation!June 6, 2014 at 3:01 pm #14489
My 2 cents, eligible at start of season.June 6, 2014 at 3:18 pm #14490
After re-reading, you may be right.
