I wanted Beatty. I said a few posts ago that I wanted Beatty to be the primary guard target when Shuler committed to Miss. I know Trapp is a local kid, but I think Beatty is better and will be more successful.

Great addition to the program. Only PJ and Sin were higher rated guards recruited by Martin.

Big big pickup. Needed a highly rated guard to close out the class and this softens the blow of losing Shuler. Potential starter next year.

What great news!!!

Martin can take these high-three and four* players and make us a permanent winner.

247Sports currently lists the Philly native as the 7th best guard in the nation.

I really like this class. A nice combo of size and athleticism with a guy in Beatty as the headliner who happens to be a great PG prospect. Really strong under the radar class. It's one of those not winning the presses when it comes to a head turning class but looks to be a damn strong one that will pay dividends for the university.

We're going to have no shooting after this year, we don't have much now. We need to get a pure shooting guard

Martin is not going to recruit shooters who are not athletic. We have to find athletes who can shoot or can learn to shoot.

Dozier has improved his stroke, Gravatt is supposed to be a good shooter (has not shown it yet, but it is early), Felder looks good from 3 point land. If Beatty can shoot the 3, our guards will be fine.

We also have forwards that can shoot - Keita is long but is more of a perimeter guy, Doumbia has the reputation of being a good shooter, even Kotsar can shoot. Remember that Carrerra was not a 3 point guy early, either quantity or accuracy, and both Kacinas and Chatkevicius turned out to be good from long range as they developed.

He's a top 100 player. Ranked #95 in 247's final 2017 ranking.

With Felder likely to get better plus Holden and Beatty coming aboard, I think we'll be in good shape with our guards next year.

Felder showed some great potential last year. He got a little exposed once he met some larger defenders in the dance, but if he can learn to play smart and understand his limitations due to size, he will be a great Devan Downey-like PG for us.

Limitations = don't shoot a contested 2 against a 7' defender when you have time to pass the ball out and find an open man

You're exactly right. He also needs to take better care of the ball, but definitely improved this over the course of the year. He is also very quick, much quicker than Dozier. The thing I liked best about him, he plays with no fear. No situation seems too big for him. Of course there's a downside to this as well. But I expect him him to be much better next year.

Ha, I think it's funny because the same description could be said of Cuevas following her Freshman season. Maybe it's a New York thing.
