The way Vick is playing, I wouldn’t expect him back. He’ll at least declare.
Newman is a weird case. We have room for him next season if he wants to come back. Could easily play Dotson/Newman/Grimes in the backcourt. But I’d be very surprised if he came back. Not sure what he can do, other than convince NBA teams he can run the point.
@BShark There is a slight difference, apparently, in their interpretation of religious principles. So far as I know, athletes at GCU have not perpetrated over 50 rapes, or killed teammates, with coaches and administrators covering it up.
@approxinfinity Very well could be. - - -I am just not sure , I have to agree you would think he is more fluid then that. - -This is one reason I wonder how he really going to fit in at the next level - -NBA. - - If he is like this in the NBA they will eat him alive - -this is where like people say , I think this is what plays a part of people saying he is still raw.
I think it gets to a point like we have all heard , he would be so much better if he just went out and played - -quit thinking so much - -quit overthinking - -just go play - have fun - - do what you do best -relax.
It’s like a lot of times he is trying to dissect each play - -each move - -overthinks like ok - is this the right way.- So ya could be they are hammering him in practice - -after awhile it gets to a point where you start thinking more about making a mistake then just going out and PLAY - I fully believe he will be fine - - I mean in reality - -with the injury from last year - like starting all over again in game time conditions.
We need De-Sousa - but is that going to happen. - -Thing is again , watching Doke - -and not trying to knock the man , but I just don’t know about how he fits at the next level with the NBA trending away from the typical Big. - - This thinking really makes me wonder will he leave after this year? - -OR will he return and work even harder then go - stick for yet another year. – When the year 1st started I was like right at 100% he would be gone. - -Now as we go along I’m wavering - -this would be a really good time when it comes - - for him not to just jump declare for the NBA - -this is a perfect scenario/time to test the waters 1st BEFORE you declare. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
This class is shaping up to be one of Bill’s best. Love the combination of OAD types (Grimes, maybe Langford/Zion) plus program builders that won’t leave us scrambling for guys over the next few years. Bill’s more experienced teams tend to be the better ones anyway, so I could see a run like we had from 07-12 coming.
18 + 19 has the chance to be a very special 2 class combination. Self can afford to be very choosy in the 19 class where KU seems to be quite well positioned.
For sure. 19 is going to be a supplemental year. Go get JRE, Lawson, and Harvey first since they could be fish in a barrel type recruits. And you already have Jacobs, so that’s 4. Then shoot for an elite wing to replace whoever is at that spot next season.
