I know this is forever away and I'm sure that I'm counting my chickens before they hatch but I think we will have so much length and height and depth at all positions we'll be the new MSU of a few years ago with final fours every few years. I know this is all on paper but how many great 4 star recruits are we getting? :) What I'm really excited about is starting Donnie Hale at the 3. If everything works out perfectly and Hammons becomes a good center, we'll have another 6'8" guy (Lawson and then J. Simpson) playing the 4 and then Hale at the 3 either as the back up next year to Barlow and hopefully the starter the year after that. I really like our length coming in with Rapheal Davis at 6'5" playing the 2 I think that gives us an advantage on D. Smaller passing lanes a la Kramer and Keaton.
It seems we have a few years of back to back great recruiting classes where we can reload every year with experienced athletic players who were just waiting their turn because the guy in front of them was just as good but a year older. I'm fine with us playing small at the center position as long as both the men down low are 6'7 or taller to create some length issues for other teams on offense. I like the the only short players we'll have may play PG or SG. I think with all these 4 star recruits they will be able to come in and contribute right away just like last year with TJ and what a great player AJohnson is. I really like Byrd, and Smith but they didn't really contribute right away and have deficiencies in their game that after 3/4 years are finally better. I think with the # of bigs we have coming if there is one guy who can't perform (Bade) we just won't have to give him Minutes b/c there will be so many other options. (Lawson, Hale, Hammons, Simpson)
