I hear you. We shall see, but this seems like a wheels within wheels move to me. I wonder what relationships this helps cultivate/solidify.Couple quick stats in regards to Levi that are very much on my radar that give me concern and that I hope he somehow breaks what has been a 3-year career pattern for him...
Career-high was 8.6 as a soph
Last year was 8.4 as a junior playing more minutes
Both of those numbers are very low. Last season's 8.4 was last on K State's team. We had just one player post a lower number than that last season, Crowfield's 8.1. Our centers were 25.2 (MSS), 23.1 (Hason) and 17.7 (Corey). A sub-9 PER is just extremely low any way you slice it, particularly for a big because bigs can usually inflate that number with typically low turnover rates and high percentage scoring (Levi's turnover rate is what kills him the most).
-3.4 offensive +/-
-0.9 overall +/-
That overall number was second worst on the team outside of the walk-ons and that offensive +/- was the worst on K State's team. I get that they play in a tough conference, but still. On paper, we statistically added the least efficient player from the last place Big 12 team.
Just something to put on the radar. Definitely worries me a bit in terms of what we do with the rotations.
