With the word coming out today that WKU will likely be adding Fredrick Edmond to the roster for next year, it's time to take stock of what players we're going to have suiting up for us next year. Harper may or may not be trying to add another player after Edmond, but for the sake of this article we will pretend like Edmond is it. So here is what our roster will look like next year.
That gives us 16 players on the roster next year depending on what happens with the Kene Anyigbo situation. As it stands right now we would be one scholarship over, but as we always say those situations tend to work themselves out. But if that is the roster that we come into next season with, I think we should have high expectations for our boys. 11 of those players have already seen significant D1 experience, and thats not really counting Alcantara who had his best game against the national champs this year. It's also not counting any of the freshmen, and CHD and Edmond can probably come in and contribute right away.
I've been coming to games in Diddle for a long time yall, and I'm having a hard time remembering a team that has had this much depth. We are really starting to see the roster shape up with the style of players that Ray really wants on his team too. This team will be able to change defenses all the time depending on who is on the floor, and will present several mismatches on the offensive end as well.
I know it's still 181 days away, but it's hard not to get excited about the product that is going to be on the court in Diddle next year. Hope you guys are getting as excited about this team as I am!!
