in the past we've had bigs or what I'd simply call tall guys sign with the program
it's been mostly the guys @ 6'8" and over that have been ..... frankly slow and non-athletic
what's unique is this group actually seems like 4 guys who ALL can
1) actually jump
2) actually can run the floor
3) actually have a decent looking shot
will they be ... 'D1 quick' ? and will they train up for 'D1 muscle'
if just two of them materialize that way, it'll be a resounding recruiting success story, if 3, I'll retract (will not retract, but amend) every thing written about CDM, because if so, the next 3-4 years could be really good, especially next year with Murray if he's back
pretty sure they will come in somewhat raw skill/muscle-wise, but there is an athleticsm and speed in this group that was a bit lacking in teh past, where our skilled guys were the 6'7" Gabe Levin types we had to use with teh attendent issues when match-up against a lot of the better programs we faced.
The answer to that is visiting today.
Ready to Go Day 1:
Tone Hunter, shares PG & SG with Murray.
Ready to Go or Not:
everything after these guys is gravy, if these 3-4 can be starter type players with giving us 15-20 minutes a game
Really Big Question will be can 1 or 2 of these bigs come in strength conditioned & really get up and down the floor in D1 level play by December? If so, we'll win teh Big West if Murray is back.
Ngoyi 6'10: (possible red-shirt)
Hart 6'4" hopefully is Caffey ready
One More: need a strong wing for depth, with Scott moving on
