It wouldn't surprise me if he is holding an open spot for something special to fall through the cracks in the transfer portal.

I saw an interview with Coach Jeter where he said he had one scholarship available but wasn’t sure he would use it unless they came across a PG that would slot right in...BUT I would think they would take a player that would be an upgrade to any starter we have.

Interestingly enough, I talked with Coach Jeter last week and he said he'd love to find another big with that last scholarship. I think that's his focus, if one becomes available.

A big man would seem to make more sense for sure

I believe Sandage and Dixon played together for one season at Vincennes.
