With its recent signing of Bradenton Victory Rock SG Madut Akec, the latest Bulls men's basketball roster overhaul came one step closer to completion.

The Bulls currently have 12 scholarship players, leaving them with one more scholarship to give (presumably to a graduate transfer). Of the 12, only three — G David Collins, G Justin Brown and C Nikola Scekic — appeared in a game last season.

Similarly, the 2017-18 roster featured only three scholarship players — F Isaiah Manderson, F Malik Martin and G Troy Holston — who were on the roster the previous year. All have departed, leaving the Bulls with no holdovers from the Orlando Antigua era.

But look for the things to stabilize going forward; eight scholarship players on the current roster are incoming freshmen or sophomores.
