Let’s do a big picture deep dive examining the 2017-18 roster… First the basics:
- Additions: Charles Matthews (2/3), Jordan Poole (2/3), Eli Brooks (1)
- Subtractions: Zak Irvin (3/4), Derrick Walton (1), Mark Donnal (5)
- There are two scholarships to give remaining in the class of 2017.
Xavier Simpson (So.)
Eli Brooks (Fr.)
Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman (Sr.)
Charles Matthews (RS So.)
Jordan Poole (Fr.)
Duncan Robinson (RS Sr.)
Ibi Watson (So.)
DJ Wilson (RS Jr.)
Moritz Wagner (Jr.)
Jon Teske (So.)
Austin Davis (So.)
A few questions that I find interesting… What young players play and how do they fit around Duncan Robinson and MAAR? Who would your starting lineup be? Does anyone disagree that finding some options at the four is absolutely critical?
I think it is very possible that Poole/Matthews play a significant chunk of their minutes at the three. Poole could be like Stauskas as a freshman in that sense, or Matthews could be more of a slasher from the wing.
Let’s just see where this thread goes.
