Yeah, I'm not saying he did. I'm arguing against the posters who are saying he essentially did (not recruiting more wings) or it would be a good idea if he did.I think 'give the spot to Carrington' is not accurate. Johnson said in his mid week presser that he wants to give the young guys a chance to get some meaningful minutes. No coach is guaranteeing anyone a starting spot.
Reading between the lines, it seems that Johnson really likes what he has and is willing to roll with that crew and let them grow a bit. Maybe he listened to all of the advice of the GopherHole coaching cabal and decided to try to play some of the youngsters this year.
If Ben Johnson doesn't bring in another player or two who can play meaningful minutes at the wings and it was intentional, I think it was really stupid. Again, I dont think this is the case. Just arguing against the people who have been hinting that CBJ isn't going after wings because he likes his freshman. He should like his freshman but he shouldn't like them so much he isn't desperately looking to improve those positions in the portal.
If Ben Johnson doesn't bring in another player or two who play meaningful minutes at the wings and it was unintentional, then it was a slight failure in recruiting. It's not a huge deal because he has certainly had recruiting wins this year, but IMO, we need wings, we can offer a ton of minutes to a wing, not getting a decent one (or 2) would be a disappointment.
