The Roster: Now And Later

Over the course of the off-season, the Oakland University men's basketball received verbal commitments from two players. Matt Poches, a 6'4" guard from Hartland, announced his decision to come to Oakland in April, while the 6'6" Dante Williams of Ann Arbor gave his word in August. When paired with the arrival of Michigan transfer Laval Lucas-Perry, these additions bring the Golden Grizzlies roster to 13 scholarship players for the 2011-12 season. While it's always possible for players to transfer, get kicked off the team, or lose a scholarship, we're operating with the knowledge we have at present. With that said, the following table displays what the roster looks like from this year through the eligibility limits of the team's freshest recruits.

Oakland will have a fairly large senior class in 2011-12, which means that the next year will be an essential recruiting year for the coaching staff. They'll have five open scholarships to work with for the 2012-13 season and needs at nearly every position, most notably on the wing. Hopefully the program's recent momentum on the court will further spill over into its recruitment efforts. Whatever happens with recruiting, we'll be keeping this table updated to reflect any additions or subtractions.
