Dwain Williams reaction
Dave Carducci's article today in the Record Courier confirmed everything I had been hearing from KSU sources since the report came out that he also gave a commitment to play at Hawaii. I can't imagine Kent State is too confident that Williams will be in the blue and gold of Kent State next season, and are doing their work to fill his spot. I'm not trying to knock Williams too much because certainly I don't know the circumstances of why he has kept committing to schools and then backing out. But as a Kent State fan it would be harder for me to trust Williams knowing how well traveled he is. Who's to say he would even last at Kent State, as he might jump to another school.
Cameron Joyce article
Mike Ashcraft from Kent State Athletics Communications wrote an interesting story about freshman walk-on guard Cameron Joyce, who redshirted this past season. Of course Joyce's older brother Dru was a standout at Akron and their father recently won the Division II State Championship in the state of Ohio. I am happy that Cameron is now a Golden Flash. I'm not sure what type of a role he will have going forward in the future other than an emergency point guard, but someone with that type of intelligence on the basketball court is always valuable. I still remember Cam's older brother drilling seven three pointers as a freshman in the state championship game in 2000 in 10 minutes of action. Also, Dru was only about 90 pounds when he was splashing triples along side freshman teammate LeBron James.
Golden Flashes draft coverage
Recently, SI.com wrote about players you may not have heard much about, but could eventually make a difference in the NFL. Kent State's Julian Edelman is mentioned in the article. I have been a tremendous fan of Edelman during his career. I can't help but think that Edelman will make an NFL team very pleased someday, whether it be in the return game or in the new Wildcat offense.
