One of the bigger problems for the bball team this year will be a lack of quality big men. We don't have anybody on the roster that meets this description besides sims and gibson (no, i'm not going to count 6'4" novak even though he plays at forward for us). If you think this is a problem this year it will be ten times worse come next year. We'll enter the season with four bigs (cronin, mclimans, morgan, and smotrycz), none of which will have seen a single minute of significant playing time in college (i'm assuming mclimans and morgan redshirt). This is an even bigger issue considering the questions surrounding cronin's health and mclimans and morgan appearing to be the project types that don't contribute for at least a couple years. This brings me to Jon Horford and me stumbling across his scout profile with him favoring alabama, providence, and michigan (all having offered). I know we are waiting on zeigler and he is the first priority in terms of signing anyone come spring. However, we need size in the worst way ever. Horford may be rail thin but he has good height and athleticism and a pretty good ranking on all the major recruiting sites. Has anyone seen this kid play? Are we in on any big men at this point to help fill out the 2010 recruiting class?
Sorry for the negative bball topic considering everything that went down this weekend, but this is something that has bothered me since the season started.
