I think OSU is 5-7 range. For sure a tournament team
Post depth is the problem I see... They are VERY guard heavy. Anei, McGriff, and the Boones are the only post guys on roster... Every other player is a guard or wing. that means they need at least one of the Boones to be serviceable as a backup.

I think they are still working on a grad transfer big or another recruit. They were supposedly in on that JUCO forward that decommitted from Tech recently but I don't know how that is going to play out if it hasn't already.

Khalid Thomas is who I was thinking of but it appears he has already committed to Arizona State.

We all know post depth is overrated.

Yuri will be fine. Better boon twin is the post if I remember correctly.

Baylor and WVU would be the only others with legit front-courts. WVU being more traditional with a real center and a real power forward.

Wait we are talking about real centers...

All we’ve heard is how stupid Lon is for having “real” centers

Lon's biggest problem is recruiting guys that cant play... I think we are fine in the paint now with Doo, Brady, Kuath as the primary rotation though.

I would love a real center that can actually play though.

I'm the one who thinks having traditional post up centers is losing basketball, and I'm also the one that thinks that OSU will be just fine with their frontcourt players. If an opponent wants to throw the ball inside and let a big man play back to the basket rather than letting your guards take 3s, I'm pumping my fist.

KU added a grad tran from Iowa who is an elite three point shooter and good defender. Wilson announces Wednesday. Unfortunately I think they are a top 5 team entering the season. That's why it's always premature to count Self out in April or May even if it seems like they don't have their typical class. They always find guys late when they need to.
