GR3 was also the only option at the 4 really and played heavy minutes all year.
Could Livers be a stud and make an instant impact if the opportunity is there? Sure. Does the fact that DJ Wilson made an improbable breakout make it more likely that Livers will make an improbable breakout? Not really.
As I noted in the story earlier this week, last Michigan freshman to avg > 21 minutes per game was Derrick Walton. Been a while.
I think this is a good class with good pieces, but I don't really see any of the freshmen playing that sort of 30 minute per night role.
I also think the need for Robinson in the starting lineup could be increased by having questionable shooters in the lineup (Matthews certainly, Simmons to an extent, MAAR is up and down).
