Looks like KSU has offered JUCO sophomore PF Emmanuel Ugboh (6-11, 250lbs). Class of 2019

6'11 Center Emmanuel Ugboh is having a great year for Iowa Western CC averaging 12.3 ppg, 9.3 rpg and 1.6 bpg. He is shooting an impressive 66.8% from the field. Ugboh has a massive frame and athleticism. He is hearing from Saint Louis, Rutgers, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss and a slew of others.

Yes please. He would be our starting 5 this year.

He would be an immediate impact guy next year.

K-State has also offered a JUCO SG, Sean McNeil, of Sinclair Community College in Kentucky. Class of 2019

https://247sports.com/Player/Sean-McNeil-46081176/

Offers from Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Texas Tech

Leading to the speculation that the staff is expecting at least 1 opening from transfer, or early departure to the NBA (X). My guess is Shadd or Love will transfer. Not sure on the guard situation.
Wow, this guy can fill it up. 29.7 ppg and has 6 40pt games. Was named the njcaa D2 player of the year.

I’ll take both these JC kids. They’re immediate impact players.

As cold as it might sound, if we could get both Ogboh and McNeil, I think I’d have to just see about helping Love and Shadd find another school they could play. It always seemed to be Love was a project and would take some time if he ever developed. But I thought Shadd actually showed more potential and would possibly be a starter by his jr year. Don’t know if injuries have just really held him back or if he’s maybe just more of a sub role to steal some minutes. He has had a few nice plays like the alley oop I think from SNW. But Ugboh just looks like a ready to play monster.

I didn't see one shot beyond 2 feet in his highlight video. He appears aggressive, very strong, quick and athletic but also raw. I don't know if he can be developed into an all around player or not but should be able to protect the rim and rebound. Also post up and jam it home. I see him benefiting greatly from a red shirt year where he could learn to play Weber D and hopefully develop his offensive repertoire. If able to help us next year the red shirt could be pulled. Don't know if he can hit FTs. A beast but a project at this level.

So you’re basically saying he’s Dok? And we know how much ku benefited from having him on the court.

He might be further ahead than some of the project bigs on our team, but i'm not sure he's an immediate impact kind of guy. He's huge and even though i'm not sure of how many minutes per game, he's averaging 12.3 & 9.3.. which means he seems to be getting good minutes, but he's not an offensive stat filler either. He seems like he could be a raw bigman himself

We need to get rid of Shad and Love and get some quality backup bigS next year.

Think we need to look at Grad transfers. TT does not tie us for B12 champions without Owens and Mooney. ISU does win the B12 tourney without Shayok. Baylor does not beat Syracuse without Mason.
