Looks like another combo guard like Nottingham to me, leaning more towards a shooting guard. He seems to be our Tyler Blount replacement.

In regards to the 3, I think your players there will be Pearson with Adams as the primary backup, and JUCO transfer Akiem Daschner may play there as well.

Gooding expected to redshirt in 2018-2019.

Kaspar usually redshirts big men and not guards. I'm interested to see how much playing time Marlon Cunningham gets his freshman year. He's the usual type of player Kaspar likes to redshirt and develop for a year (ie. Alonzo Sule this year, Eric Terry last year)

In regards to Gooding, Jr....Keep in mind all we are seeing is the good stuff on his mix tape, but just going by his highlights, I like the fact that Gooding looks very comfortable in transition. He shoots well off the dribble which is a BIG plus for the Bobcats…we don’t have many players that shoot well off the dribble. Gooding has an excellent release on his jumper. That quick release combined with the elevation on his jump shot should make his attempts harder to contest despite his size limitations. There’s only a few examples of him hitting set shots so that may be a struggle for him, but with a 73% Free Throw percentage, I would guess it’s not an issue. I’d be interested in seeing more of his ball handling. This is just highlights, but it does look like he can get out of control. With a 3.82 GPA though, I’m betting whatever warts he has are coachable.

Key notes that stand out to me:
3.82 GPA
38 inch vertical
52% FG
73% FT

From Gooding, Jr:
“I'm here for the challenge, I am a reliable player will stay on task and keep my grades up in the classroom. I like to get better and work on my craft. It is hard to keep me out of the gym, but win or lose my heart will be left out on the court every game. Basketball is my true love, and I am very passionate about it.
I have always loved basketball, after losing my father and my grandfather it has become my safe haven. Playing with Harker Heights has made me grow drastically, from being one of the top ranked teams to almost unknown showed me that now it’s the time for me to step up, starting my junior season, I was one of few letters to return, leading younger guys was like a dream come true, some were even older. Being the leader of this team has showed me what being a team is really about, and what sacrifice can really do for another.
I know that on anyone’s college team, i will work day in, and day out. Whatever the team needs is what I will bring to the table.”

New commit? 6'3 G from the woodlands. I'm assuming this is a PWO. I'm not entirely sure.

EDIT: Actually I'm thinking Marlon Cunningham is gone. ... t=position

He's not on the roster.

Noticed Cunningham not on the roster also, was just hoping he hadn't made it to campus yet from Albuquerque. Maybe he's not set to arrive until the fall semester?

I've seen a few things that point towards McClure being a grayshirt that will count towards the 2019 class. If that's the case then I'm not too worried about Cunningham yet. Not sure what could have happened between when he signed a month and a half ago to now. Again, I'm just hoping he hasn't made it to campus just yet.

TXST release on the signing of McClure does say he's a 2018-2019 signee and also only mentions Harrell and Daschner as the other signees of this class.

You may be right, Cunningham may be gone.

Always sucks to lose a big, but not sweating it too much since Scott/Daschner Can potentially play at the 5.. hoping McClure can play. So many lost causes from Kaspar’s classes.
