One of the final 3 scholarships will be used on one of these two freshmen pgs. Not sure on the other two. I'd guess a sit-out transfer and then best available (juco or frosh). Maybe even 2 sit out guys.

:pray: please not 2 sit out guys. Take both of these PGs. We've been long on sit out guys and short on PGs for far too long.

yes

this team needs immediate help. so do most of the fans. especially me

In my opinion based upon what we have coming back we should use all 3 available scholarships on guards. Ideally 1 JUCO PG. Another frosh 2G (Simeon kid would be great). And with the last scholarship the best guard available (sit out is fine but needs to be worth it). If that's Mitchell or another new PG that's great.

We have gotten into this pattern of thinking we already are set talent-wise going into the year and then we get half-way through non-conference and realize our talent isn't good enough.

Muller needs 12 or 13 scholarship players suited up every night competing for playing time. Not 9 or 10.

Here's the current situation with next-year guards:

Copeland - will get better (like Dom/Boo/Knight/TBrown) in 2nd year. But not the explosive scorer/shooter he was made out to be. Average defender. Average ballhandler. He's a 2G/wing player.

Boyd - everyone says he's a great scorer. FG % was pretty bad in a weaker league. Guessing shot selection and decision-making are going to be a problem initially and he will struggle more against a higher level of competition. Sounds like good upside. 2G.

Horne - frosh PG. Even if he's Nic Moore good, it will likely take him nearly all of frosh year to adjust and begin to be productive/efficient.

Hein - We know what we have here. He should not be playing more than 5-10 mpg.

Ideally you want to have 2 starter-level players at both guard positions. We MAYBE have that at the 2G position. We definitely do not have that at PG.

I want as many guys as possible that can make shots from 3.

We have to add at least two players that can shoot the three. Even with TB coming back, this appears to be a glaring weakness at the moment. At best little proven depth. I hope I am wrong. I also believe we add another player that can create and distribute. Unless we get a player that can shoot the three and distribute, i see all scholarships used on guards.

I think he'll look better in red and white. Here's to hoping the weather cooperates and he gets a good tour of campus.

Hopefully the players/coaches hit it off with Kolton and he realizes that there is a potential for a lot of playing time.

Visit was set up before Greenlee’s. Don’t want to assume anything, but with how this spring recruiting has gone...

Judging by who he follows on Twitter I would say we have a really good shot at him. Love how pro Redbird he is. A 6'4" PG who isn't scared to take it to the hole or pass it? Yes please.

Maybe Florida Gulf Coast isn't looking to add another PG. KM is right in FGCU's backyard, but apoarently not recruiting him.

Yeah, that's a pretty weird tweet if he hadn't committed.

Solid get.

I don't think this means he committed yet. It's a recruiting thing done by the basketball staff for his visit.
