If we can land Jorgenson that would be a very good thing. I no longer care about the scholarship squeeze. At this point Donahue needs to try and do whatever he can to win. Given the weaknesses of this team, minutes won't be an issue for either
Jorgenson or Owens. Right now we are looking at possibly not making the tournament next year, which before I thought was a sure thing. If we can land both Jorgenson and Kelly then I say take both. If we can land a third recruit that scouts are particularly high on (such as Etou) then you take him too. Even if we leave zero scholarships for 2014, there is almost certain to be at least one transfer and unless we can turn the ship around it will be highly unlikely to recruit our top targets anyways.
On a sidenote, I think this Board acknowledges that JD was not good enough to start in the ACC, but he would have been a great PG off the bench and would have dramatically helped this team. His ability to break the press and find open players can hardly be disputed. Unlike Daniels, Humphrey actually sucks but sadly even he would have helped this team.
As a matter of old news, I am also pissed at GDF and/or admissions who did not let Travis Taylor come to BC. Unlike virtually our entire roster, Taylor would have been an excellent player for us and given us some major depth as a big. If Donahue of all people (who cares about academics more than most coaches) was willing to take him, he should have gotten a pass despite past disciplinary issues. I am hoping Brad Bates and admissions give the coaches more discretion on who to take.
