Tweet from Rodney Rice, posted by @navery12 in the Luke Murray thread this morning.
I read somewhere (Rivals?) that he's recently been hearing more from UConn. I suppose this is why.


From his Rivals page. (EDIT: I now see this was posted earlier in the Murray thread by @AntG168)

I believe in today's game you need shooters for the perimeter, and he looks like that and more. And I like that nothing in the video that Hans posted looks forced. But there's a lot of overlap here with Corey Floyd. No? Or am I missing something?

The more overlap with Corey Floyd the better. I’d like 3 of him.
my ideal lineup is:
CG
CG
W
Stretch
Stretch

2 CGs that can play on or off ball and shoot (eg floyd)
a 3 and D wing (eg hawk)
2 stretch bigs that can rebound and block shots (eg samson)

The really nice thing about starting your class off with a guy like Floyd is that you can bring in anyone else you want without making him redundant because he can play three positions.

We should offer his 4 star teammate Tyrell Ward he’s a good system fit and really sticks out on tape

That’s ideal for me, as long as one or more combo guards is an exceptional ball handler and decision maker. The primary ball handler needs to have the ball on a string or we will struggle against great teams.

I think Diggins will have us all thrilled with having a pure PG again. If he can get in the gym and become a deadly shooter, he will be an absolute beast. I think what you really want in a perfect world is a pure point that can shoot the lights out alongside a combo guard that can really handle the ball.
