I think with the amount of open scholarships we have / should have you can balance immediate win now guys (seniors) along with a mix of projects (king type players).Are you hoping Johnson gets him so that he is here for the next coach? Don't get me wrong, I'm all for bringing back a local kid and hoping he develops into a strong player but is Johnson in a position to go after a potential project in the portal knowing he has to win now?
Seems like that may be a tough balancing act in terms of looking to the future but also making sure you do everything possible to win more right away as well. There are enough open spots to potentially do both but gotta think Johnson is going to prioritize guys he thinks will be ready to roll right away over guys that may need more time to develop before they are ready to make an impact.
IMO CBJ still needs to run off both Fox and Ihnen as I don’t believe they will help the team. That would leave a bunch of open scholarships (fox, ihnen, thompson, battle, cooper, henley, evans, samuels, & ramberg).
In that situation, go get some real guards who can give immediate impact. Then give Christie 15 min a game and Carrington/King 5-10 (make him earn those minutes as he didn’t do much and he had no competition last year).
