DeAndre Pinckney

6'8" forward (?), juco signee. Maybe Ladner is planning to win a few games next season.

Of course, highly touted recruits have a way of fizzling at USM. Gotta be below the Mendoza line on that question.

Re: DeAndre Pinckney

from our buddy, Timmy D....

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - Just a few thoughts while flipping the calendar and hoping the days of May are discernable from the lost and lonely blur that was April …

University of Southern Mississippi men’s basketball coach Jay Ladner likes his 2020-21 signing class.
We mean, he really, really likes it.

“This class has the ability to change the direction of the program,” Ladner said during a recent media meeting through Zoom.

Ladner said the Golden Eagles were delighted with the group of five they inked on the opening day of the signing period.

That group included Pearl River Community College point guard Tae Hardy, who Ladner described as “the best player on the best junior-college team in the country.."

It also included guard Jaron Pierre of New Orleans St. Augustine High School and Mark Jaakson, an Estonian native who played at the same prep academy as current USM swingman Artur Konontsuk.

“We think those two are steals,” Ladner said.

USM then added two JuCo prospects who were ranked among the top 20 players in the nation, a pair of long, lean bookends from south Florida, including 6-foot-7 guard Justin Johnson from South Georgia Technical College and 6-8 wing DeAndre Pinckney from Broward College.

The two faced each other growing up and were friendly rivals in high school. Johnson’s signing may have helped make up Pinckney’s mind to join the Golden Eagles, Ladner said.

He stopped just short of saying USM fans could expect to immediately see the junior college trio in the starting lineup, but did acknowledge that junior college players certainly were signed with the idea that they would contribute early.

“We didn’t promise any one they would start,” Ladner said. “What we did tell them is we can promise you the opportunity is there. We’re going to put the best five players on the court.”

Ladner said that one or two more newcomers were a distinct possibility, depending on how the spring semester shook out for some of the players currently rostered.

The watch certainly included sophomore point guard Jay Malone, who broke into the starting lineup late in non-conference play only to be sidelined in January because of academic shortcomings during the fall semester.

Stay tuned.
