Re: Tell Frank Martin to get on this kid NOW !
As sad before...tall doesn't equal good...and in today's game, there aren't many true 7-foot postmen anymore...with the permiation of uptempo, spread the floor offenses, you need guys than can run the floor and your post guys have to be physical forces down low.
Just look at Baylor's seven-footer...a bean pole who got pushed around.
Or the 7'5 guy out of New Mexico...an out of shape mook who couldn't run up and down the floor.
I like that Martin is filling out this class with "shorter" guys that can run the floor (granted, all the players are taller than most fans on the board I imagine).
If we can land Josh Cunningham, another 6'6-6'7 wing guy that we need, that will be a good addition with Stroman, Blanton and Sheppard.
