    I'm just saying it's a given that we need guard depth. What 15-20 point per game impact transfer is going to want to come to Butler for his final season only to be promised a backup guard spot playing behind a 5th year senior and a sophomore who blew up at the end of last year? Just being realistic.

    I'd prefer a rotational guard with ball handling skills who can knock down the 3-ball efficiently, but I think we are all being overly optimistic if we think we're going to land a top 10 transfer guard for next season. Stevenson put 30% of his threes in on over 450 attempts in 3 years, I imagine if they were open three point attempts in the 2-3 attempts per game range then he'd be much closer to the 40% range.

    FWIW, I am posting my Top 70 currently available transfers/recruits in college hoops later today. Here is where guys Butler has been publicly linked to land on that list:

    22. Lundy
    24. Kolek
    30. Monsanto
    42. Fox (not in final eight)
    67. Rice
    NR. Stevenson

    Kopp is at #48 if Butler is interested there.

    I agree with what a lot of people have said regarding Stevenson, and I also agree with what you have said here. Is he a "slam dunk"? No, but I can't imagine he's being promised a major role and maybe his shot-selection will be reined in a bit in his final year. We'll see what happens, nor do we know just how interested Butler really is. And for whoever brought up the Twitter tea leaves, Stevenson is following South Carolina's head coach, an assistant coach, and their special assistant to the head coach/director of on-campus recruiting. All three are in his four most-recent follows. He is not following any Butler coaches nor are they following him, though I'm not sure I'd read too far into that.

    This is where I stand. I don’t fundamentally have a problem with taking him over taking nobody, but I don’t want-under any circumstances- to compromise the mins of taylor or thomas.

    It's interesting, after starting aplenty, he'd want to come here and be the fourth fiddle in the guard band. Maybe being awful last year he's been humbled and wants an atmosphere where he sees a chance to win much more than what Washington is? Who knows. After sleeping on it and thinking more about it today...I wouldn't *mind* it. It's definitely not my first choice but, he's prob going to USCe anyway.

    This is exactly where I stand

    I want minutes for Taylor and Thomas

    I also don’t want another bolden type player which I feel Stevenson is

    Average role player that once every five or six games does something that is in the positive

    No surprise here, unfortunately, but Damari Monsanto has committed to Wake Forest.

    Agree, though we've had transfers on school #3 in the past (Bolden, etc.). That doesn't worry me in the age of "transfer free agency". I'm definitely not saying he's the answer, but we need an upperclassman guard just for depth. Bolden is too streaky in my opinion and sucks on defense. Tate is hurt. It would be a lot to ask Harris & AT to play 30+ minutes a game every night (and that's before COVID or getting hurt).

    I think Bo can split minutes between the 2 & 3, also, though.

    Also with his athleticism my man can run some at the 4 in smaller/quicker lineups. Transfer or not we'll have many fun rotation possibilities.

    1. AT, Harris
    2. Harris, Bo, Bolden, Taylor Thomas
    3. Bo, Scoob, Bolden, Thomas
    4. Nze, Coles, Scoob, Wilmoth and a little Bo maybe
    5. Golden, Nze and soon enough maybe Wilmoth with some more muscle

    And Scoob ran point some for his AAU teams and a little in high school. God willing he's back to his old self because if he is...it's as good as getting a top transfer.

    I think LJ & co. will & should be very selective when it comes to possible transfers for this coming season because of: a) the depth of the team and b) the apparent chemistry with the returning guys.

    I honestly think Bo could run some point at times too. I believe that was his ultimate goal when he transferred to Butler. To develop his passing game and outside shot.

    I've seen a lot of comments about freshmen starting, and we don't know how prepared Taylor and Thomas will be as freshmen. Well, we didn't know that about Chuck Harris either. He earned his way into the starting role. I think if you bring in a guy with experience (Stephenson or whoever) you still give your freshmen and chance to contribute. You'll find out pretty quickly what their ceiling is for their freshman year after a couple of BE games. If they are ready and become another Harris, or another Kamar, then I think you role with them. You'll have them for 4 years. All I know is it's going to be interesting (and fun) to watch this team next year. Hopefully we'll get more chances to do it in person, too!

    Who else do you have a prediction on? Fill in the blank “I’d be shocked if ______ doesn’t transfer here”

    We must all remember the golden rule of following Butler recruitments/transfers: if the prospect releases a “Final X” graphic on Twitter, he’s very, very unlikely to come to Butler.


    Sent from my iPhone, so it’s probably not written all that well

    Hodges would be one of the last options at the 2. No chance he has the outside shot to be consistent behind the arc.
