Any former Wisconsin prep player looking to come home should strongly consider GB. The experience of Sandy Cohen and Cody Schwartz speaks volumes for the opportunity and school environment. Darner and his staff seem to be able to draw the best out of players who may not have had the best experience with their first pick or those who simply want a change. Even if an athletic scholarship isn't available immediately -- tuition is inexpensive at GB and other forms of aid are available. A player sitting out next season would have a golden playing opportunity in the 20-21 season. It should be interesting to see if anyone takes the opportunity.
I am all for bringing in two transfers to boost the team in 20-21. The current sophomores will be seniors and if you can add two veteran pieces to the squad then year 20-21 could be special. This doesn't even include the development of Kellogg and Davis which I believe both could be special.
Although I still believe 2020 recruiting class will be a huge one for Linc Darner and his staff. Have to hit this one out of the park. Haven't had much luck with any 4 year players thus far except for Kam.
This little run the team has gone on this postseason only helps open the eyes of potential recruits as well. Go Phoenix

I should clarify. The information I have isn't specific to this scholarship. I am assuming like every other mid major fan in the state the staff likes Domask.
Beyond what I hear I also know what I see. When building the roster the breakdown under Darner is as follows:
4 D1 Transfers: Cohen, Schwartz, Jespersen, Warren Jones
8 JUCO Transfers: Tank, Josh McNair, Jayquan McCloud, Jevon Smith, TJ Parham, Sukjot Bains, Jamar Hurdle, Charles Cooper
11 High School: Amari Davis, Japannah Kellogg, Will Chevalier, PJ Pipes, Manny Patterson, Trevian Bell, Hunter Crist, Kam Hankerson, Trevor Anderson, Anthony Brown, Avery Brown
Darner and Guthrie have spent a lot of time at the lower levels of the NCAA or NJCAA. The same could be said for Herbst and Davis. These guys don't seem to be afraid to look under every rock even if the players don't fit the NE WI high school model that some fans want. Prior to Davis and Kellogg signing it was 12 guys with experience or degrees in hand versus 9 out of high school.
My guess is that if they don't land Domask they will be looking for an experienced guy who can contribute right away. With the shakeup at NKU and OU the league is wide open behind WSU, that creates an opportunity for a pretty talented and experienced returning GB team.
This dude is transferring, if there is anything good and right in recruiting he will give GB a look. He has a family connection to Ashland were Darner coached as well.
He seems like a great stretch big man in Darners system who didn't get off to a good start in D1.
This guy ended up at Toledo and has been dismissed from the team. I know GB doesn't have scholarships but this is the kind of guy I would love GB to land. With some hard work this guy could grow into a solid mid major prospect.
