I think we need stronger rebounding at the 4, even if strategically it isn't what we emphasize -- better rebounding instincts, fundamentals, and fight. Young probably would have been better, but Livers is worth locking up.
While odds on any of them individually were long, I would probably still want to be able to absorb one of the 5stars whether through assumed attrition or through holding the 4th spot. Some of the risers we have already in the fold having good senior years, Jumpman launch, and for those deciding late our performance on the court can change a lot. Plus the LaLu connections where relevant.
I would probably have held off on Brooks in order to put a bit more weight on those still yet to decide, but have no issue giving Cain or Young the last spot if they are interested so long as we have a good read on how to fit in one of bowen/jackson/wilkes if need be. Its probably too early in what is hopefully another push to the top of the b1g to plan to get one of those guys but in 2-3y I hope that is the mentality -- that we save slots for these types bc we expect in a situation where there are 3 of them, and several playing with our current top60 commit, that we will get one.
