It was done once before, overhauled the roster after the 14-15 season.  Paid off two years later with a BSC title and NCAA appearance. 

Jones and company need to step back from the JUCO world for a little while, getting transfer from other schools have been more successful so far, and get back into Minnesota.

Another:

PG Tyreke Locure, 5'10", Des Moines (North), IA 

First offer - scored 26/game as a sophomore!!  First team 4A all-state!

Tyreke picked up another offer, from Drake.  According to the Desmoines Register (link), he played with our big get Jal Bijiek, and is now getting interest from big name schools.

"That future could be very bright for the Polar Bears floor general. Locure — who sports a 3.2 grade-point average — already has a North Dakota offer, that’s where his former Polar Bears teammate Jal Bijiek will be headed next season. Shortly after Niko Medved and his staff took the reins, Drake became the second school to offer. Iowa State, Iowa, Creighton, Wisconsin, Milwaukee-Wisconsin, Minnesota, Morehead State, and most recently, Nebraska-Omaha have all expressed interest."

"Despite that drop in recruitment activity during the winter, there will be collegiate  personnel at North games this season. North Dakota coaches were in to watch him against Ankeny Centennial amd Nebraska-Omaha was in the gym Friday night when Locure poured in 35 against Hoover."

At only 5'10", maybe bigger schools will be hesitant to offer and we could get another steal.

This is a few years out but Mandan has a 6'7" Sophomore, Elijah Klein, who is still growing.  Most likely will reach 6'9-6'10 in the next year or so.  His mother graduated from UND so I hope Jones is looking at him.  Could be a nice pick up for the 2020 incoming class.
