Combo Guard: TJ Taylor (commit)
Point Guard: Phil Pressey (good possibility)
Wing Gaurd: Cam Clark (likely)
Post Player: Alex Tyus (showing OU interest)
 
Let's get McCallum instead of Pressey. Of course, Pressey is probably more realistic.
 
Pressey or McCallum....I would take either one....Just have a feeling that Pressey is going to hit a growth spurt...How tall is his dad???
 
Pressey's not going to grow 5 inches in 2 years. He's 5'7. Pressey is a great penetrator, but he's not going to get a shot in the lane unless he develops a quick floater. He also needs to develop a three. The flipside is he's an excellent transition player, can get everybody the ball, and is uber quick.
 
That's only 4 players. If Willie and Tiny leave, we should be able to sign two more.

(Not that we'd want them to leave, but Willie probably will, and Tiny has said he hopes to.)

I doubt Tiny will leave after this season. It seems like we're trending more towards the 2 years then go, than 1 and done. Plus, I think Tiny will be a few steps behind what Blake was as a Frosh, just based on conditioning. And if the NCAA institutes that new rule giving players just a week to contemplate entering the draft without signing an agent, it becomes even less likely because he wouldn't be a sure lottery pick.

Willie will definitely be gone though, that's for sure.

So we'd lose:
JP
Wright
WW
Crock

Franklin and Beau aren't on scholarship.
 
Spiff I tend to agree with you BUT that being said the Tiny and Blake situations are totally different. If Taylor wasn't back this past season I think it was more likely than not that Blake would have left after his frosh year. He was a lock for the lottery.
 
That's true, but also look at how much Blake coming back for another year helped him. Tiny will have a very good reference for the amount of improvement one extra summer/season can have on a player if he puts in the time. But yeah, their situations are very different, and I really don't know what kind of a kid he is anyway. So based on logic, I'd say he stays two years, but based on his personality? I obviously have no idea.

If i recall right his dad grew from 6'1" to 6'5" or so in college, I grew 5 inches after i graduated, why cant he?
