2014 Signing Period Open Comment Thread

New, 54 comments

The regular signing period for men's basketball starts today, and lasts until May 21st, we give you our recruit "Big Board" as we "try" to figure out who will ink themselves as a Miner.

Jim Brown-US PRESSWIRE

Who is coming? Who is going?

Those are the million dollar questions around Miner Nation concerning the roster makeup of what should be a huge 2014-15 season for the UTEP Men's Basketball program.

Eight prospects have committed, three have signed, and five or a possible sixth may sign, but today we start to find out.

The jewels of this class in my opinion of worthless opinions, are Chris Sandifer, Omega Harris, and Marqwell Jackson.

Just because I single those three out doesn't mean this class is not deep nor capable of producing multiple starters and regular rotation contributors.

Under the radar guys like Trey Winn, Lew Stallworth, and you can even throw Trey Touchet in the under the radar category, bring needed dimensions to the CTF system, such as versatility in the back-court, defense, and the knowledge and experience of winning at the AAU and high school levels.

Next to another influx of solid JUCO transfers from Southern Miss. coach Donnie Tyndall, this UTEP class just maybe the best in the C-USA as of today.

Of course today means nothing if the following on the list aren't here once camp starts in early October.
