Is it my imagination, or all all of our recruits other than Karnowski, Guards? It seems like every post I see lately about who we are recruiting is a guard. Don't we have any centers or forwards out there that we are pursuing?

GU recruited & got a verbal for 2013 from Lucas Meikle, a 6-8 forward.

College basketball is really all about guards. We'll be fine with the bigs.

It is not clear as to what percentage of total recruiting we become privy to.
I doubt very much that we are seeing more than just the tip of the iceberg.
Just like Bob said --college basketball is a guards game and young guards may be harder to grade (because there are so many of them.) So good recruiters get involved with a ton of guards and then watch and wait to see the cream rise.

I think Coleman, though the size of a guard, will play a lot of the 3 position

Kyle D is probably more likely to back up our guards, I think

I suspect Dranginis will get plenty of time this upcoming year. From what I hear, he's cranked up his game tremendously in his freshman RS year.

it started with Jeff Brown transferring and we never looked back. The Zags are on this run because we have been super lucky to get size.

No Ronny, no streak. Beating North Carolina out for Josh didn't hurt either. Same goes for JP and Kansas. Sacre will be in the NBA next season.

It's nice to have heady guards out on the floor being coaches, but give me size and I'll coach them up.

Coach Cal has 6'10, 6'4, 6'10, and 6'8 lined up so far. He could get bigger but he is sort of a pioneer and doesn't use 7fts like most would traditionally do.

I know we have had many other bigs that helped build this foundation before and after Brown. Fitz liked tough sound bigs. Thanks to all.

The Heat are by no means a small team. OKSeattle is longer. Coach Spoelstra better quit getting cute by going small, he may burn his fingers one of these series.

i agree i would like to hear about some 2013/2014 bigs. 2013 big man could come in and rs or be the 4th big, then when ko/dower leave they would be starting with karno gary bell and pangos. pretty good pitch

Yet Kyle is taller than Gerard.
