So all signs are currently pointing to Tyree Evans being in class Monday. Talk about playing things low key, but then again he is just a walk on after all -- A very talented, possibly one of the most talented players to ever play in the Mid-American Conference type walk on.
For those you, like me, who are interested in the type of game that Evans (may) bring to campus this season check out this Web site from the summer league he played on. The site is loaded with videos of him swishing 3’s. He definitely has a nice shooting touch.
I don’t know Evans personally and I am yet to meet him, but I do know if he does indeed land on campus Monday there will be a lot of questions that both he and Kent State will have to answer to satisfy a lot of nay Sayers.
I hope his past problems with the law are now behind him and he truly has turned the corner, but the ball is truly in his court. Man, that might be the worst cliché I have used in a while, my apologies.
ANOTHER WALK ON
It appears Evans won’t be the only walk on joining the Flashes this season. Former St. Vincent-St. Mary point guard Cameron Joyce will be joining the Flashes as well.
Joyce is the little brother of former Akron standout, and Lebron James best bud, Dru Joyce. The announcement comes as a little bit of a shock considering how popular Dru was as a Zip.
I am willing to bet Akron coach Keith Dambrot just didn’t have the roster space available. Cameron (5-foot-7) will provide depth at point guard for the Flashes.
…Fans from both sides declaring school supremacy can begin posting their humorous comments now. They will eventually be found below…
BROWN, STEINBURG CHANGE PLACES
Head coach Geno Ford still has a coaching spot to fill after the departure of Mike, director of basketball operations.
Brown is replacing Bobby Steinburg as the head coach of Motlow Community College. Steinburg is, of course, the new Kent State assistant coach and staunch supporter of Tyree Evans, his star at Motlow.
No word yet on who may be replacing Brown. Two guys will be interviewed this week.
I am hearing good things about red shirt freshman Antonio DiMaria as of late. I was told he registered the highest vertical leap on the team recently and is shooting the ball extremely well. Expect him to play a position similar to Mike McKee with a little more athleticism. If all goes well he could be a nice contributor alongside the streaky McKee and Rashad “What’s defense?” Woods.
