Every indication is he'll be eligible due to a hardship situation for "family medical issues". Of course this is the NCAA we're talking about but with this wide open portal thing they've got going, I'd be surprised if he sat a year. As far as years of eligibility, should be two years minimum, provided he doesn't decide to go pro after one season. Some of the articles I saw stated he's the highest rated recruit (4 star McDonald's All American) since one and done Kris Humphries. 6'11" Garcia was lighting it up at NC before his concussion and leaving the team. Garcia, Battle & Fox in the front court? Me like! Now we need to find an experienced point guard who'd enjoy feeding those guys the ball. Add a quick shooting guard or two for good measure who'd like taking an outlet pass to the hole after a rebound by those 3. Still a bunch of guys looking at MN yet and that pick up certainly didn't hurt matters.

Ben Johnson landed a potential immediate impact point guard with Morehead State transfer Ta'Lon Cooper, who committed to the Gophers on Wednesday.

The 6-4, 190-pound South Carolina native averaged 9.1 points, 4.5 rebounds, and ranked seventh in Division I with 5.9 assists per game. The All-Ohio Valley Conference first team selection had four games with double figures in assists and his 202 assists led the OVC and ranked second in team history.
Conservative on some things.....Liberal on others.....Sane most of the time.

I was hoping maybe Brad Davison would scrape up another year of eligibility and enter the transfer portal so he could play here. Oh yeah, April Fool's Day was 3 weeks ago. Silly me!  :doah:

Bad news, already. Parker Fox injures his other knee & is out for the '22 - '23 season...:doah: Ihnen his likely replacement. Hope his year off helped his scoring.

6' 8" potential starting forward actually. Eric Curry got hurt during summer practices too. He never got back to the potential he showed as a freshman. Was looking forward to seeing Battle & Fox playing in the same front court. MN sports... :embarrassed:
