....The staff, since Apr 2017, could've gone in many directions regarding the roster. The 5-man senior class was a roster construction/management decision made by the staff over a period of time. It was avoidable. They chose to align the classes as they did.......and with 5 "perimeter" seniors to boot. They chose to recruit a JUCO soph (Simms) and keep Crow for 4 years and allow Vann to remain (who had graduated). They understood what 2020-21 would bring with those roster decisions. They rolled the dice that we'd dance again in 2020 (thus two yrs in a row) and that it would buy them some "rebuilding" time in 2021 and 2022. It didn't work out that way. They thought 2019 (NCAAs) was "repeatable." Many folks did.
I like/prefer Simms (seems like a potential Treveon Graham type) for Scholly 13 if we can get him.
Just admit you were wrong like many other so-called "experts" were.I want more kids that can shoot..............like BA Walker, Troy Daniels, Jamal Shuler, Brad Burgess, Tre Graham, etc. The three-ball has always been a big weapon/differentiator for us.... I think Crowfield is next in line.
