In the past few years, though, I think we’ve been trending away from smaller fours. DJ Wilson, obviously, was pretty tall and long, and while Iggy is 6-7 (and probably the shortest we’re willing to go), he’s played decent defense and his size hasn’t really been an issue. (It was for Novak and GR3).
As we move into the 2020 class, I have to think Johns moves back to the four, and Livers will be a senior at that position. I say that because we still have Castleton at center, and we’re recruiting the center position as well in 2020.
I see Johnson as a three. But he may struggle to play early either way, as Jalen Wilson will be a year ahead of him (and also presumably a three), and I had thought Bajema was more likely to be a three, too.
Even if Johns stays at center, it seems like Wilson at the very least is taller and has more length than Johnson, and would be more likely to guard opposing fours.
Ultimately, these are really good problems to have. We seem to have really turned a corner in recruiting. Win and they will come. And I think we’re back competing for the type of guys that we have a great shot with.
