    Up until Brunk left, we had a center in 3 consecutive classes. There was (and still is really) 0 reason to specifically want a center in 2020. I suspect the plan has been to redshirt Mulloy anyways, making him effectively a 2020 Center.

    There were people calling for Golden to start in the last few games of the year and badmouthing Brunk. Now we want Smits or someone else at the 5? I don't get it. If Mulloy needs to play, then let him learn on the court. If Nze can play the 5, that means more minutes for Hastings at the 4.

    I *think* I'm hoping they red shirt JMM regardless of having a thin roster this coming season. He can add to this program but needs that year to get stronger and continue to develop. That leaves us very vulnerable up front though and of course lends itself to guy playing out of position. I want a big, any big, if for anything to not waste McD's senior season at the 4. I think the trickle down effect of he on the wing (Tucker too) rather than mixing it up with Big East 4s would be very positive. We'll see, I do think there is a need for an added big with the JMM red shirt. At least for someone that can play the 4.

    I don't want Smits>>>Golden in any world, but I wouldn't mind Smits or some plug and play, few minute big to help the depth up front with this roster. In all honesty, we don't know what we have in Hastings, we know we don't like McD and Tucker guarding 4s...so it may seem people want Smits, but I think people just want something decent that can give 7-10 minutes and a couple rebounds here and there. Nothing like "get Smits and he's our man in the middle!" At least not from me, I'm pro Nze-Golden at the 4-5. I like the idea of a bench piece to spell them, but definitely those two starting.

    Xavier is going to be very very good. Far ahead of Butler .

    I believe Joey left in part because he thought he was going to lose minutes to Nze at the 5.

    I'd like to think they are at least considering him some at the 4 with Golden at the 5 or vice versa. It's ok (and probably beneficial at times) to let them have some run together, knowing the front courts we'll be going up against this year. It may not fit what LJ wants to do, but, what has he "wanted to do" that has worked at all to this point? He needs to adjust a little and has a pretty good opportunity to do so, especially if by chance we do land a 3rd big.

    A thought came to mind with Golden deciding not to redshirt- he may have had a good inkling that Brunk was planning on leaving.

    I don't like much four letter, but that's a pretty good list with the small right ups on each player, and actually more in depth than 24/7's...their's is based on HS ratings and this four letter list seems to dial in more on college production. Borzello is good, I wish he would dump the four letter but he's always been a good bball insider and good guest on GP and others' shows.

    Nice find, dude.

    In all seriousness, out of the immediate list that are available, I'd love to see tires kicked on Hazzard, Tucker, Gilder, Ingram, Stone, Cheatem, Ryan, Johnson, Cumberland.

    You had mentioned him as a possible and I completely forgot to include him in mine. But I like the idea. He'd be a nice addition to the front court as a rough and tumble 4/5. Would def allow for a JMM red shirt.

    Blackshear leaving va tech...

    No chance with every big boy coming after him I'm sure, but, we can dream.

    Also, looks like Tucker has visited Auburn and is visiting Memphis, those two seem to be his front runners.

    Hot damn!!! This would be absolutely wonderful, but with his track record in the ACC, there's going to be a crazy long line for him.
