That front court needs two impact transfers if you want to compete, in my opinion. In an era when coaches can bring in 3-5 new transfers every offseason, Pastner should be incredibly active. Devoe is arguably an All-American this year, it’s going to be very hard to replace everything he does.
Pastner deserves to keep the job and have the extension he received. However, I think everyone is a little concerned at how badly the recruiting cycle went. It’s why this offseason’s portal could easily make or break next year’s team. As it stands now, it it looks like possibly the worst...
Just not enough contending ACC talent on this roster. Pastner better hit the portal hard this offseason or it’s going to be very ugly. I don’t see a single likely returning player that I am confident can start at this level yet.
It’s just a little disappointing that Devoe has taken the leap to be a superstar but we’re not likely to make the tournament. I keep saying this, but striking out on impact grad transfers really hurt our chances this year.
If you’re Gibbs, why wouldn’t you go to a place like Alabama and get the spotlight for a year? He sure as hell isn’t going to be on a contending team next year at GT and be on prime time/CBS often. Seems like easiest decision possible.
