    Completely agree. But I'll reiterate Coles if ever there's a guy that is going to contribute from day 1 it's him. Has played with the highest level for years now. If he continues to improve his body which he is working on. He'll be the best freshman we've had since Kamar and will make an impact. Not saying he will start or average 10 and 7 but I think he will be more than serviceable in some role. The scouts had him as being the most college ready big guy in the nation. Not upside and potential but he will acclimate and assimilate to the college game the fastest.

    To answer your last question. I don’t think he is underachieving. Until Thompson got hurt, he was gradually integrating into the game without pressure to do things he is not ready for, such as handling the ball and playing shut down D. He then got called on to contribute more and he has not yet responded. I hope he can continue to get minutes and incrementally improve yet this season to a point where he will be a reliable shooter and defender off the bench come Big East tourney and into NCAA.

    I really hope we can get some contributions out of some of them so we can be competitive. It’s hard to imagine what like will be like without KB and McD. Gotta hope that Scooby and company are ready to step up.

    You’re right. He’s been great. Was tying to examine guys ranked around battle and slightly better (I.e. guys in the lower part of the top 100). Of course, there are some good freshman. I’m not trying to say there aren’t. But the reality is, good freshmen - especially outside the top 50 - are exceptional. Most are bad, so we shouldnt assume any of them are gonna be great right away, and it’s ok that Battle has not been consistently good. Again, my hope is one of the five freshmen next year is a plus player. That’d be a win. And if I had to bet, my bet is it’d be scooby.

    I see no scenario where either Harris or Tate doesn't fit into the rotation if for nothing more than to rest AT.

    Benton Harbor improved to 11-1 with a 78-65 win over South Bend Clay.

    I've had this strange obsession with the idea of watching all 5 play at the same time for a few minutes during an exhibition. Not sure if LaVall will do it, but I REALLY want to see it. Just for the novelty.

    I wonder if Scooby can play some point? It would be huge to have a 6’ 5” point guard.

    I am really excited that not only are these recruits talented, but are all playing on good winning teams.

    He played PG all last year. You could definitely have him play some point

    I try to remind myself that good high school players often aren't able to be consistent contributors as freshman. But it is really tough with this class. Although this is our highest rated class ever, I think it is nevertheless underrated because it doesn't have any top 75 guys. I can't wait to see the versatility on the court.

    We have a very good team this year and are exceeding expectations. However, we have proven that our bench depth has been lacking in productivity. Granted we will sorely miss Kamar and MdD next year, but looking a Scooby and the rest of the 2020 class, I have to say that many will get significant playing time as freshman, especially Scooby. He really has a complete game for a HS student and his body is definitely BE ready.

    I think you will be surprised. Myles Tate has already won 3 state championships and looks like they will take a fourth. His HS team is ranked
    #3 nationally by ESPN. He reminds me of a less muscular Kamar Baldwin who if I remember correctly was not a top 100 prospect.

    It will be a long season next year even with this recruiting class. We will be very young and inexperienced. I think many are expecting way too much. Just look at Battle.

    Battle has not figured out much this season. Hopefully 1 or possibly 2 freshman can contribute with some consistency next season.

    I don't know how you figure we will be so young and inexperienced at least the starters we will have 3 seniors and a junior for sure starting and probably a sophomore. There will be a ton of worse teams in D1 in the experience department
