Demons Abyss / Re: A 4th Year for DL . . .
« Last post by mrap24 on August 14, 2017, 09:54:34 AM »
JCL has played 2 full season of college hoops, the book is out on him.  defaulting to "he's a former top 50 recruit" i think, as this point goes away.  he has had significant playing time at the college level.  odds are, he is what he is, which is a dynamite standstill 3 point shooter, and really nothing else.  his defense make BGJR look like shane battier.  Henry was a guy who had minimal PT, with no tape out there on him.  kinda apples to ornages

but until we get guys who can be a presence in the paint, none of the wings will matter

There is no real downside to this and if it pans out and the kid keeps improving than it will be awesome.

unless he ends up being "bad" at basketball when kids his age catch up to him maturity wise.  agree there is minimal downside, its just another "laughable" think to add on to the program.  our new assistant coaches ace in his sleeve was an 8th grader.  how about landing some guys who might help you save your job.  I cant wait to see people posting this kids 8th grade stats this season.  hilarious

as for my percentages:

DL still here, 5%
Kid still here, 10%
Anderson still here i will go with 25%, but now that he brought in an 8th grader, i could see JLP demanding he stays on staff to whoever the new coach is in order to keep him

DL     10%
Kid     50%
Bailey said he wants to stay home if that stays true Dave staying wont matter
Bailey is a 13/14 year old kid. When I was that age, I said many things that I changed my mind about even a year later.

Questions for everyone:

What are the chances DL is still around by then ___% 15%
What are the chances the kid makes it on campus ___% 5%

The more important question is; What are the chances Anderson is still on staff in 2022?

Well, the way I see it:

1) Henry was one of our best players in the last decade so if Coleman-Lands plays to his level which he is expected to do considering he was higher ranked out of high school and was more successful at the same university before his transfer in his time at that school I would say that is better than the average recruit/transfer during the OP and JW era.

2) Diener - Yep, not a top 200 recruit, but he has already done more in high school then our average recruit. I fully expect him to be a solid player. We shall see.

3) Tyger - He alone makes his class better than at least 7 of the last 10 or 11 classes.

I will stick to what I said which was "on paper" recruiting/transfers have improved noticeably over the previous two coaching staffs.
And I will say that the measuring stick is now so small, that we are getting excited about classes that perhaps are 8th best in the Big East at best.

and, with another year, Hanel will improve as well.  And, if he sees the floor, you may as well kick Cook, Butz and Reed out the door.  So much for recruiting bigs.

but, they looked better on paper.
