I don't get it. What about the modern basketball game makes you want a 7'1" project?

You are much better off with a skilled, undersized guy.

so, it's been past the signing date for a long time and a 7'1 guy is still available? That doesn't sound promising on the surface....

what's the back-story?

I watched his video... I'd sign him. Redshirt him next year and see what happens. 7'8'' wingspan, 7'1'', good athlete.

When Kruger got here, he recruited a ton of guards (5 in his first two classes), and surrounded his three guard starting lineup with a stretch 4 and a shotblocker whose only role on offense was to screen and finish alley oops.

That strategy was insanely successful. Why have we moved away from it?

gotcha...I just don't follow recruiting big time and wondered why a 7'1 kid for 2019 was still available...besides the obvious (not good enough).
