TJ Parham committed to Army out of high school where he played in Illinois at Marian Catholic. He has transferred to Wabash Valley CC for his sophomore season and is primed for a big campaign. The 6’7” small forward presents size for position and solid athleticism. Parham is best working out of the high and mid-post area.
This is a post from last December: @jucorecruiting
TJ Parham (6'7, G/F, 2017) of Wabash Valley has been offered by Albany & UMKC. Will have 3 years remaining
Plus it looks like he didn't play at Army so he has 3 years left to play. I can get behind this as a Jamar Hurdle replacement. He took a lot of 3's in JUCO but didn't hit that many. Perhaps he needs to improve shot selection instead of form.
Bank the last spot for a transfer or top 2018 prospect.
He seems like he is sharp in the class room, Army along with wanting to own his own business seems like a decent combination.

As mentioned GB tried to recruit Isby and did get Parham from Wabash. Wabash ended up getting Zion Morgan from UNLV for this next year. I think he would be really good in the #rp40, hopefully GB can keep that link to Wabash CC strong and pull more talent from there in the future.
Also, I really like that 4 of the recruits in this class are from Illinois. I think on paper 4 of the starters for 17-18 will be from Illinois. That is good for recruiting.

Given how short the roster could have been with the relatively late losses of Kanter, Turner, and Anderson, this looks like a really solid piece to add in mid May. This helps balance the scholarships, but also a body that should physically (particularly rebounding) be able to provide some minutes at the D1 level right away.
Congrats to Linc and the staff. If Cohen is playing in semester two, it could a rebuilding year that has some high points to it.

I always liked him as well, but never seemed to fit. With the lack of playing time he was pressured to perform when he got the opportunity. I am glad he is a grad transfer and should get an opportunity to play somewhere immediately. It does free up a scholarship for one of the many transfers availably.
