    Nope, first commit of the current coach, Steve Pikiell,. Had other offers from Wagner, St Peters and Fairfield but chose RU. I suspect he was envisioned as another ROUND MOUND, but we all know SIR CHARLES was one of a kind. Could be an average to above average D2 player. But this is all just rumor so far.

    Just posted on CALU page DS has hired STEVEN BRIDGEMAN as his new ASST COACH. He played 3 seasons at WJU and spent the last two seasons as Grad. Asst. there. Good choice.

    This just in....from NYTIMES reporter @AdamZagoria, Matt Bullock is indeed transferring to CAL U. This was confirmed by Coach Steve Pikiell of RU. Have no idea how his skills will fit in, but at this point I'll settle for a healthy body.

    Almost an identical size match to Edinboro's Trey Staunch. Those guys aren't easy to move around.

    Another possible hs player for DS, with a curious twist. On 5/18/18 ZYAN COLLINS, 6'3" PG/SG out of Freedom South-Riding HS Woodbridge VA, announced his commitment to CAL U. On 5/30/18 KENT MCBRIDE, who presumably recruited him announced his resignation. Since then nothing official or unofficial was said until yesterday when a tweet from his HS congratulated him on starting his next step with the VULCANS. Odd part is that his older brother ZACH COLLINS is a Jr at WJU having played his first two years for DS. Seems he may have encouraged his younger brother to go through with his commitment. Should know shortly.

    Interesting. If this year follows Cal U’s yearly pattern in releasing their final roster, it’ll most likely be posted approximately 2 weeks after the start of school. So, I expect we shall know the FULL roster in that upcoming time frame.

    It's not much, but it does appear the VULCANS will field a team this year.

    GEE!. That’s a HUGE chunk of the “secret Vulcan ‘18-‘19 team package!” (sarcasm)
    I hope you’re better at recognizing the rear-ends of our team than I am!
    Someday in the near future we’ll actually see faces, names, and numbers too...I hope.

    Absent somthing more definitive, I count 9 heads in this photo that appear to be college age. Anyone know if Sancomb has any eligibility left?

    Nine heads, yes ~ but if you look very closely, there are ELEVEN pair of feet!
    To the left of the player in blue shorts, there are two more pair of feet.
    HINT: The players are all in stocking feet. So there are at least 11 on this team. : )

    This is really getting silly but I came upon another transfer who looks to be getting ready to play for DS. NATHANIEL CHAMBERS JR 6'4" COMBO GRD of Catonsville Md via D3 Lesley University with 3 years to play. At this point my best guess is the team will have 13-15 players made up of 5 returnees, 2-3 freshmen and 5-7 transfers. Entirely different style of coaching for SANCOMB who obviously has had the advantage of continuity over his time at WJU. Hope he's up to it.
    Incoming freshman....COLLIN MACADAMS, ZYAN COLLINS, ERIC EVERETT
    Transfers...NATE CHAMBERS, MATT BULLOCK, BRENT PEGRAM, KENNY LEE, IKE OKWARA

    Still looking. And finding this...

    Looks like 14 is the number per DS in interview in the Wheeling Intelligencer on Sunday

    Not much size on the roster.

    But, Danny knows what he's doing.

    Any word where Howze landed?

    First game vs FSU was solid for first time on the court for real. With 9+ min left game was 58-61 and still there for the taking. Rest of the way 6-15 shooting didn't get it done. The game was ultimately lost to the FALCONS 3pt shooting, 15-28, versus the VULCANS 6-21. That 27 pt differential is hard to overcome. All other stats were mostly even. Other oddity only 6 players made it on the court. Cannot imagine why ? Hope injuries are not the cause but you've got to wonder why last season's bright spot PHILLIP ALEXANDER saw no time??? Maybe tonight vs NCC.

    I saw them scrimmage WLU. I think the vulcans are going to win some games, as evidenced by how tough they played FSU in first game.
