Class of 2009, ESPN #5 Ranking
So according to ESPN.com recruiting, the class of '09 with Cadougan, Maymon, and Williams is currently #5 in the nation behind North Carolina, Villanova, Georgetown, and Texas A&M (Big East has 5 of the top 11). This doesn't even include Dwight Buycks who alledgedly is the #1 ranked guard in juco. Pretty impressive for Brent's first runabout. With the subtraction of papa Mbakwe, Buzz has another opportunity to add another highly touted kid and challenge nova and G'town for the top 3. I perused the list of those that are interested in us with the top 3 being a 6'5" SG out of cali, a SF, and Jamil Wilson. So I'm taking a poll on what/who we think Buzz should target to solidify this roster. Should he target the best available talent regardless of position ie. Wilson when we already have Maymon and E.Williams for SF's? Should he look for more depth/talent in the front court as O'tule and Morrow are more big than talented? Or should he find that 2 guard that can shoot the lights out? I am torn between a shooting guard and power forward, but at this point I am leaning towards a SG based on the fact that we have some size with Hazel/O'Tule/Morrow and we are completely lacking in the sniper department. However, the jury is still out based on the fact that I don't know if our "bigs" are going to amount to anything. Thoughts?
