    Such a nice pull. Hopefully this helps us with Jeffries.

    About brooks though, how do he and smith play together? Which one is the 5?

    Brooks probably guards the opposing 5. In our offense, both will be capable of being on the block.

    Brooks numbers for last 2 years...
    2020: 16.8 ppg 8.5 rpg 2.0 assists
    2021: 10.2 ppg 6.9 rpg 1.4 assists

    He can obviously score and rebound.

    DJ Jeffries just tweeted "I'll be making my college commitment Monday " is the timing just coincidence?

    Gonna be interesting. I don't really like them both on the court together. Maybe for stretches. Brooks played the 4 mainly at UNC. I like him at the 5. One thing is for sure, we won't be running 4 out, 1 in with Brooks and Tolu on the court together. Side note, I like Jeffries better at the 4 than the 3.

    We gonna get Jeffries too. Jeffries wants to be a 3 and Brooks wants to show his ability to shoot his jump shot at 4. And we said- "C'mon. Hell yeah"

    Great pick-up! Tolu Smith and Garrison Brooks play somewhat similar game but, Brooks can stretch the floor a little more, Regardless you can't pass up on a player like him so Howland will have to figure how to play the two of them together but you definitely want both on the floor at the same time alot of the game. One thing for sure is we will be a heck of a rebounding team and have 2 solid proven low post scorers next season! If we can get Jeffries, and DJ Stewart comes back, there is no reason we shouldn't make the tournament and actually be competitive. That gives us size, scoring, rebounding, defense and pretty good shooting also with Molinar and Stewart.

    So in other words the complete opposite of how Dan Mullen would have recruited them.

    I'm good with Howland doing this.

    This could turn out to be a very solid team!

    Could be really good. Brooks is solid. Not spectacular. But very good pickup.

    Will be great if we get Brooks and Jeffries but I won't get totally excited about the team until we know Stewart is coming back. Forwards and Post players are nice but college basketball is driven by guard play. We can't lose Devion Smith and then also turn around and lose DJ to the NBA. If we do we haven't really helped ourselves.

    There are guards in the portal to replace Deivon.

    Rhodes barely played on that 04-05 team. That year I think we usually started Marcus Campbell at 5 and Roberts at 4, but in crunch time Ontario Harper played 4 and Roberts at 5.

    The front court combos of Vincent & Roberts and Rhodes & Varnado were so much fun to watch.

    Yes, but we need to find the right one. Brooks and Jeffries, though not a done deal were somewhat obvious choices. Finding that right guard is a little tougher.
