Ray Shipman??

Gators reserve guard Ray Shipman to transfer | www.palmbeachpost.com

He may be looking to play closer to home.† I'd love to see what Coach Jarvis could do with a former Florida Mr. Basketball.† I wonder our level of interest.

Go Owls!!

He is looking to play closer to home…

And he has a 3.8 GPA to boot.

He can play and fits our mold academically as well…

Word on the street is that he would have to do more bench time at UM, as they are already loaded at the guard spot, and will likely get some Ivy league types calling on him with the GPA being so good after two years of College…

He will have two years of eligibility left after having to sit out a year…

Without being able to comment on him as he is a potential recruit, still virtually CERTAIN FAU has him on the radar…

It should also go without saying that we currently have a great recruiter on the staff that was a Coach at UF…

You've gotta hope that the UF connection would help with this one.

It seems like he's sharp enough to pick a school that's not only a good fit athletically which is what worries me, FIU offers a Sports Management degree where FAU can only offer a concentration in it through a Business Degree. And you know Isiah is throwing money at him! It'd be a coup to get this guy methinks.

I think center is a bigger need than guard, but obviously you try to get the guy if you can.† Are there any 7 footers out there that want to play closer to home?† ;)

It won't help but FAU does offer an MBA in Sports Management. From what I've read about it, the course work is hard and you aren't allowed to hold down a job so you will be totally immersed in the program and available for internships.

I hope we can provide the same sort of experience at FAU that he had at UF…sadly I don't know if we can:

He managed to keep his grades up even with all of those extracurriculars, which impresses me. 5 to 10 girls at once is A LOT to manage!
