    current lineup"

    guards

    returning: justice williams.
    incoming from murray: juice hill, trae hannibal
    incoming from NC st: cam hayes

    we could conceivably have two guys named justice in the game at once. unprecedented.

    lets cross our fingers some more fellas return. reid and miller would be nice.

    really got a logjam already at guard. if miller returns would have 5 guards, all experienced.

    desperately need big guys.

    forwards:

    kendal coleman from NW st
    mwani W

    center corneilous williams, freshman.

    seems like a real opportunity for jerrel colbert and bradley ezewiro to stay and develop in the SEC, rather than transfer and battle for playing time in a new program and/or a worse conference. unless reid stays, which would be pretty sweet.

    I liked him

    Not sure Reid will find a home. Probably comes back.

    Did all pf the WW recruits that de-committed commit/sign elsewhere? If not, any chance that MM can reel some of them back in?

    the big center yohan traore is going to auburn. he is the second highest rated recruit in their history.

    marvel allen the PG is not committed, and neither is 5 star macdonalds all american julian philips.

    as to whether they may return, who knows. its without question a good sign that a smart and sensible fella like wilkinson is in and approves of coach M.

    still left to wonder what the punishment is and when it will be known. talked to a guy last weekend that works in the athletic dept and his best guess remains one year postseason ban.

    from a mock draft i read:

    18. Minnesota Timberwolves: Tari Eason (LSU, PF, Sophomore


    1. Eason appears to have a wide draft range down to the late first round. The mid-first sounds like a safe landing spot for a team that values his toughness and versatility at both ends, even if it's hard to identify any one specialty skill. Analytics departments will advise decision-makers to buy."
    i would rather have eason than, for example, cam thomas. eason is a proper two way player. plays as hard on defense as he does on offense. like jrue holliday. wade saw the metrics on eason as a well rounded player and hit the jackpot on a 1st round pick.

    unfounded rumours are spreading about reid and miller staying. lets play angel's advocate and pretend everyone who could credibly stay or transfer in is coming:

    1. juice hill, trae hannibal, cam hayes
    2. adam miller, justice williams
    3. mwani wilkinson
    4. kj williams kendal coleman shareef
    5. efton reid, jerrel colbert, bradley ezewiro. corneilous williams

    now that is a decent team. its so thin at small forward though, shareef might have to play there, or go with 3 guards.

    I thought Shareef was gone? Saw an article where Shaq basically said LSU didn't take good enough care of him.

    He also said Shareef was Gianiss with a jump shot which is complete crap
