    If Friedel is eligible and red shirts wouldn't that be a good sign for the team this year?

    I've, like others, have assumed Wingett will have to sit this year. If he gets immediate eligibility that's gravy IMO.

    I'm still optimistic about the season. We are unproven but given the guys I know are eligible, I think we will struggle early in the season but will be a tough out in Sioux Falls in March.

Coach Henderson told us Freidel is eligible to play this year, he said it doesn't mean he will play but he is eligible. I assume that means he may redshirt. He wouldn't say much about Wingett other than he was on campus and excited to join Coach Henderson who had recruited him previous to his signing with Memphis.

    This weekend I was told Wingett is far from a done deal and there is still some uncertainty with Freidel. It made me feel a little unsettled. I'm powerless to have any effect on the ultimate outcome. So, perhaps it isn't even worth discussing. Point taken.
    Now this is a helpful and worthy post. Thanks.

    Thanks for the heads up. Itís kind of slow right now, but if there are issues it is good to know about them.

    Potential issues... Take it with a grain of salt. Or a handful.

    FWIW both Freidel and Wingett were present and working the SDSU basketball camp this past week.

    Also Brandon Key, Douglas Wilson, and Tray Buchanan

    What's the issue with fridel? Didnt get get a release from Wright state? Or is it academic reasons?

    I may be a bit naive, but it seems to me that Coach Nagy would not be pursuing players who were not making the grade academically. At this point in time, the chatter about grade eligibility seems unlikely and/or premature. Also, the assistance available and the peer pressure to make the grades would be more support for student athletes in Brookings. The release from WSU must be total if he is in the conversation as ready to play this year. 71 days until the first football game. There is too much time for thinking up reasons to worry about something.

    Thought we put the Freidel issue to bed? I remember someone way back verified that he's an excellent student and unless Coach Nagy blocks him, there is no issue with his original commitment to WSU. He never enrolled in classes there. In an interview, Coach Nagy was not happy about how everything played out with Noah, but I also personally know the man and he's not a dick that would block a kid from playing. If there was tampering on Hendo's part, then I could possibly see him file a complaint with the NCAA but he's not going to mess with an 18 year old's basketball career.

    As for Wingett, if the NCAA was consistent with their transfer waiver approvals and denials he would most likely get the thumbs up. However these things take forever, probably won't get an answer until the fall. Until then Hendo can't really comment on the situation other than they submitted paperwork and awaiting word. NCAA is always a coin flip, so Hendo isn't going to imply optimism or pessimism on this situation.

    If I understand Wingett's situation, Memphis has to officially acknowledge that they recruited over him and took away his scholarship so they could give it to a more talented player. Everyone realizes that is what happened, but I'm not sure Penny (or any other big-time coach) wants to say that on the record, thinking that opposing coaches could use that against them in future recruiting battles.

    Too lazy to look back but someone here said he went to Noah's graduation and Noah graduated high academically in his class. I don't think there are any academic issues, but I could be dead wrong. I worry about other schools trying to get Noah to decommit from his LOI. Its against the NCAA rules but that does not mean much in todays world were everyone is above the law or act as if they were.
