have entered the transfer portal. Oquendo leading scorer at Georgia this past season. Bates an athletic 6’11" shot blocking big at NC State. Both might be worth a long, hard look from coaching staff.
Another rat off Georgia’s sinking ship. I’m not sure he gives us anything we don’t already have in abundance (6-4 shooting guard, 27% from deep, 71% at the line). Bates only played one game this year due to a shoulder injury, but he averaged 9.8 points, 5.9 boards and 2.7 blocks in 2020-21.
Like Au’diese Toney, Bates attended a small private high school in Fayetteville, NC (not the same high school though). He had offers from Cincy, Charlotte and Clemson.
Admittedly I didn’t look at their stats before I posted about them. Oquendo’s aren’t really that impressive after all. Bates is intriguing; he’s very athletic for his size and a pretty decent shot alterer/blocker. Might be a nice backup big to JWill (assuming he returns).
