The Friars Mystery Man- Kris Monroe

While awaiting the 2020 NBA Draft to finally (literally) start, thought I could get a quick piece out for you all. Ed Cooley had his radio show this evening and while I did not listen, I heard Cooley was really impressed with Kris Monroe. The Friars 2019 recruiting class was headlined by David Duke Jr and AJ Reeves and for good reason but Monroe and Jimmy Nichols rounded out the 4-man class. Two years in we have seen what Duke and Reeves can do, we even saw flashes of what Jimmy Nichols could bring but Monroe appears to be the mystery. In two years he has only played a total of 121 minutes and 30 total points over that time, mainly in “garbage time”.

Ed Crosswell Receives Waiver- Will Suit Up for the Friars

LaSalle transfer Ed Crosswell received a waiver for immediately eligibility and will play for the Friars this season. Web.

Brycen Goodine Granted NCAA Waiver for Upcoming Season

The wait is finally over, as today it was announced the NCAA granted Friar guard Brycen Goodine a waiver for immediate eligibility after transferring from Syracuse back in March. I for one am shocked. Granted with COVID it appears NCAA will be handing out waivers like Halloween candy, but with our past history I wasn’t going to believe it until it happened. Ricardo Ledo never got a waiver for the Friars (while he attended several high schools).

Bryce Hopkins close to deciding? Do the Friars pull off the recruiting upset?

Back on September 25th Fenwick Friars forward Bryce Hopkins was set to cut his list from 9 to 4 finalists. Something since changed and Hopkins backed out of another cut, saying all the top 9 were great schools. It was thought that the Friars were going to be among the final 4 schools that would include Kentucky, Illinois and Indiana.
