It’s Thursday and you know what that means — time for another edition of the Aaron Torres Podcast. Aaron covers a wide range of topics from the return of the NBA and MLB to how Johnny Juzang’s transfer waiver can help others, before welcoming Alabama coach Nate Oats to the show. Here is a full recap:
Return of sports, transfer waivers, college hoops recruiting: As he’s done the last few shows, Aaron opens by discussing where we’re at with the return of sports and explains that while it’s been a great couple days for college sports, the NBA and MLB are both making huge mistakes, for completely different reasons (6:00). He then discusses transfer waivers in college basketball and how Johnny Juzang getting a waiver at UCLA could help others across the country (including Olivier Sarr) (25:00). He finishes with a college hoops hodgepodge, discussing Mac McClung to Texas Tech, Jonathan Kuminga and Moussa Cisse’s recruitments and Arizona’s impressive run bringing in foreign players (33:00).
Alabama head coach Nate Oats joins the show: Oats (46:00) discusses Year 1 in Tuscaloosa — what went right and how impressed he is with the SEC overall. Then he turns his attention to Year 2, talks about a Top 20 recruiting class nationally, the emergence of former McDonald’s All-American Jahvon Quinerly and draft decisions from two of his most important players, as the Tide get set for a big second year under Oats!
