I can appreciate your concerns, but no one has as of yet, declared either one of these young men as program changers. They are just pieces to a puzzle that Rex is working on. Matt (6-8) is the higher rated prospect, although he seemed to have dropped in the eyes of some recruiting sources from he soph year to his jr year. ESPN had him ranked #82 a year ago in the class of 2012, now he is out of the top 100. He is not your ultra athletic player, he just seems to play within his capabilities and with a good understanding of the game. Joe (6-5) does not have the following that Matt has on a national level, but seems to do a little bit of everything well, a glue type player, which Rex uses quite effectively. Again, these 2 are not program changers, but their signing can be viewed as a real postitive in my mind.
