Not really sure the “JUCO” tag is warranted. Technically, Jarreau and Gresham are coming from JUCO, but they didn’t play there and were only getting their academics in shape before coming in next year.
Trending: Neutral. Replacing a first-team all-conference performer like Gray at point guard would ordinarily be a recipe for a rocky transition, but give Sampson credit. In four seasons at Houston he has built the program to the point where the Cougars will likely, and deservedly, earn a good many second- and even first-place votes in preseason American Athletic Conference polls for 2018-19. With a veteran core made up of returning starters Davis, Brooks and Robinson, UH will be tough once again next season.
