Did not mean you just hit the first reply button. Our LSUclass is a 2-3 year foundation/depth type class. Meaning nobody will be expected to step in and start or comtribute IMO. Not saying they wont just wont need them to. But everytime a big prospect mentions LSU we sometimes over react. I follow c...

[quote]Honestly this years class can go a million different directions. Odds are that it won't be as star studded as last year but will have lots of solid 4* players. It will be similar to the 13' class but probably a little better ranked due to Toliver and Maea. This is a classic class for filling ...

Yes slow down, we have this year to see.
Also to see how far along or how good guys such as Hornsby, Quarterman, Gray, Odo, Elbert, and Malone are.
He is the real deal, in that you can build around him as a freshmen and he will have the impact a KD, John Wall had. Need to see if J-Mart, and M...

As others have said there are too many factors that are not mentioned.

I would not compare his game to anyone, just let Ben Simmons be Ben Simmons. He has beautiful form on his jump shot and is just smooth on the court. If we can get J-Mart and Mickey to stick around those 3 as our 3 biggest on the court .

Gray would but who do you put in the corner? Morgan is gone and its not Quarterman's strong suit. You could have Quarterman in the corner and have a follow ball screen, with a backside stagger screen but at that level that won work consistently. And a ball screen on the sideline is very easy to defe...

I am a huge fan of the Horns offense. But it will be interesting to see how it is used.
Horns is an offense where you react to what a defense does. Meaning usually it is the bigs going two high, and the point or creator choosing a side in the base offense and you have an initial pick and roll or ...
