Great News. GO PANTHERS !

Nice pickup

this years class= size, size and more size. Now need to get a scorer at the wing, and a PG

J we have one of the best High school point guards in the country last year Redshirting, but we do need another one.

don't write exclusive when this news appeared in the fiugoldenpanthers.com 1 hour before you copied and pasted this.

We also had one the nations top scoring shooting guards in Richaud Pack who is on the roster. He's gotten in some games but has looked totally lost... Hopefully, he'll figure it out by next season besides with Wright, Allen, and now Legion he really isn't going to play to much this season. Looking forward to the Sunbelt tourney where we should do well.

And next season with all the committed size and speed.

blkpanther, if your talking about Taylor. I thought he was in prepschool (low grades) which means he'll have to be recruited all over again.

I think he's talking about K.C. Ross-Miller, who de-committed from Kentucky and then couldn't get into LSU. He's ineligible to play this season, but hopefully will be available next season. I think Taylor is a lost cause for FIU. The whole story surrounding his recruitment leads me to believe that Isiah Thomas coerced him to sign with FIU.

Oops, nevermind. Just learned that Ross-Miller transferred to University of New Orleans, and has already played two games for them beginning spring semester. Apparently, a loophole in NCAA recruiting regulations allowed the transfer since UNO is unaffiliated with a conference. Online rumors seem to be that he'll transfer again at the end of this season, but it seems unlikely to me that he would come back to FIU.
