Lakeem was forced to play out of position for his height. This guy will play SF and nothing more. He'll be a solid guy from 12 feet and in. We don't need him to be anything more than that. Our shooters will be Ty Johnson and Thornwell. And I think Notice's shot will be improved from this year.

Welcome aboard Shamiek!

I think we can all agree that any and all of our remaining recruits need to be sizable post players who are natural 4s or 5s. I'm talking 6 foot 8 or taller with some beef.

Sheppard is 6'6" 220 and played a extra year in high school....so he should be a little bigger than an average high school senior.

As long as he can hit FTs, he shouldn't be an offensively liability. This is more about defense and toughness than anything else.

I disagree. I think that he can and will play the 3 position, plus his coach says that he can hit the 3, although I do realize that most of his highlights were on fast breaks and drives to the basket. The shake and bake, crossover dribble that he made from the top of the key was a thing of beauty. I can easily see him taking defenders off of the dribble from either the wing or the top of the key.

Which Clowney are we talking about? Steve Clowney? Anyways, we need guys that have some polish to their games already. We need guys who know how to a play a bit already not ones we have to teach everything.

If you watch his highlights.. He reminds me a lot of brandon bass with his shot. Kinda a slight hitch. But the kid is explosive and can jump out the gym just like Blanton. Hate he got hurt. Could have really helped the team

I sure wish he had not gotten hurt. He is listed on the official roster as being 6-6 and 225 pounds. Multi-position player who would have added to our depth and talent. But that will have to wait. And, since he will be a freshman next year, he is one of the reasons we don't really have to sign a wing player this year.

By the way, I am really impressed with Blanton's athleticism. He will play a lot this season.
