That’s a mid year transfer so yes unless a waiver is granted. Very solid pick up though, Boise will be very good team next season with all these guys eligible 

We will see.  Poor character player.  That’s the best Boise State can attract which is sad tbh.

Boise will definitely look a lot different than they have in the past. With Akot, Doutrive, Kigab, and (possibly) Alston there is going to be a ton of length and athleticism. Certainly more than Boise has ever had.

I wonder what affect Derrick Alston Sr.'s experience will have on his son.  He was drafted 33rd overall, played 2 years in the NBA and 16 years overseas and is currently an NBA G-League coach with the Westchester Knicks.  

IMO Derrick Jr. still needs to gain at least 30 pounds to have the body required to play in the NBA.  Not many 20 bmi guys at his position in the league.  The "slim reaper" Kevin Durrant is an inch taller and 40 pounds heavier.

I don't know that he'll ever gain that much weight. He just doesn't have the frame for it, but he definitely needs more than he has now. Hopefully he stays to bulk up and turns that into a 1st round draft pick.

Holy Cross PG Drew Lowder is transferring. Boise listed as a possible landing spot. His high school teammate, Kesean Pryor, is a current Boise signee. He averaged 14 ppg, 3 1/2 apg, 1 spg, and shot 42% from 3 as a trFR (on a terrible team). He'd have to sit out a year, but Boise will have a lot returning in two years with Doutrive, Akot, Armus, and Shaver.

Boise just got a PWO transfer with Donovan Ivory out of UMass-Lowell.  Had offers from there, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and a PWO option with Wisconsin Badgers.  The 6'-5 guard averaged 20 points, 8 rebounds, 3 steals, 3 assists, and 2 blocks in his senior high school season in Kaukauna, WI.  Seems like a solid walk-on pickup who will have 4 years to become a contributor.

Doutrive will immediately be boise's best defender 

Which of course isn't saying much but you're right.  No one will be a better on ball defender.  How he pays attention off ball will be coaching....

UCSB was after Doutrive as a recruit.  Nice pickup by Boise.

Not sure if walk-on or scholarship guy.  From Spokane (Lewis & Clark HS) and then Cochise CC. Has weird form shooting the ball, but a 38% 3-pt shooter and can attack the rim better than any UNLV guy. He averaged 23.3 ppg, 8.5 reb, and 2 assists. https://www.njcaa.org/sports/mbkb/2019-20/div1/players/najesmith8r49?view=profile

Should have 3 years to play 2 with immediate eligibility if needed in 2020.

Great pick up. He has the size and scoring ability of RJ Williams, but with more of any outside game. They needed a guy like this on the team. Boise is going to be insanely deep next year. It's possible that two of the starters from this years team will be coming off of the bench.

Love the beard.  Need more of that.
