Red team:

Isaiah Joe

Daniel Gafford
Emeka Obukwelu – led Division III UT-Tyler at 19.6 points per game last season on 68 percent shooting
Jonathan Holmes
Gabe Osabuohien
Ibrahim Ali

White:

Desi Sills
Adrio Bailey
Ty Stevens
Keyshawn Embery
Mason Jones
Ethan Henderson
Reggie Chaney

So, is Emeka Obukwele and Ty Stevens walk ons? Also, any info on their size?

Obukwelu is 6-8, 235 from what I’ve found on him. Stevens’ Hudl and player profile on MaxPreps reads that he is 6-1, 175. They are walk-ons. Obukwelu has to sit out per NCAA transfer rules. He played two years at UT Tyler.

Interesting make up of the 2 teams. The red team may have the 3 best players and probable starters on it, but have only 4 players who have a chance to contribute significant minutes. The White team probably has just 2 starters, but has 6 players who have a reasonable shot at double digit minutes. Mike sometimes makes a player switch or 2 after the first half. Can’t wait to watch this Friday night!

UT Tyler is NCAA Div III. Does he still have to sit a year?

Yes. Arkansas’ SID told me this week he must sit for one season.

If you transfer down, you can play immediately. If you transfer up or laterally, sit out a year.
