Re: Recruit: Tafara Gapare, Forward, 2023 - Offered

Before everyone goes wild over how we lost him perhaps you should know he wasn't able to be admitted to GW at the time he should have been admitted. Had that not happened he was coming here. So nothing to see here for us except as it relates to admissions being far too strict. Also, there may be a connection to this and why certain other things happened with respect to the previous staff (although it was not the only thing involved and maybe not the most important thing involved).

Good to know. To be clear, it was admissions (GPA, tests, etc.) and nothing to do with his visa or what not? Appreciate the update

According to Joe Tipton on Twitter, Gapare will announce the decision about his future on Monday at 6:00 p.m. Two pro;leagues plus 5 colleges in the mix: Maryland, Illinois, Virginia Tech, DePaul, and UConn.

While it stinks that he didn’t end up making his way here, at least the NCAA schools listed are at a higher level than the A10. Can’t do much about that.

Surprised UMass didn’t make the list heh

Believe it had to do with requisite courses/grades - you have to have so many credits in different disciplines. The New Zealand educational system course descriptions were vague and GW chose to interpret them in the most restrictive way is my understanding meaning he would have had to do a prep year here to clean things up on his transcript to be admitted to GW. I think once that became apparent he wanted to decommit and see what his other options were. GW Basketball really had no choice here but to move on.

The worst program of the five finalists. Interesting.

That's definitely a head scratcher. Maybe he figures he'll get a lot of playing time early

Maybe a Kiwi alum with a big NIL pocketbook.

I tried to tell you all to keep it moving on Gapare. This was not a JC problem.

I'll add UMass.  The whole Frank Martin Experience this offseason moved them up my list of hated A-10 teams.
