And losing players to transfer is the norm in college basketball - and we have used that to our benefit going the other way. That is smart recruiting.

We should have gotten in the tourney three years ago, that was a pure screw job because we were an SEC team and not a traditional power. We got in two years ago and made the Final Four. Last year we had enough talent if we had a decent PG.

So........we have a better PG situation now, and we are in position to become a regular NCAA tournament team. Will people still say Frank can't recruit and needs to go then?
Just for the record I said last year we wouldn't make the Tourney as well. With that said - IF that PG you speak of actually shows up then I will gladly be wrong. I just don't see a PG on our Roster that is going to lead this Team as I see Moss as more of a 2G. Unless he has really improved his ball handling he will get eaten alive at PG and don't even get me started about Gravett. My hope for this Team hinges with Lawson running PG but heard he weighed in a 165lbs when he showed up.

I thought we would make the tournament but only IF Rah played the second semester. If he had played, or if Kory Holden was healthy and played anywhere close to his potential, you would have been wrong in your prediction last year.

Gravett will be better after his first year playing the point (he had improved a lot by the end of the year), Tre Campbell is a legit Point Guard who has played high level competition, and TJ Moss had a lot of nice offers. No slam dunks in the group, but three better options than we had last year. I can see Campbell starting and Gravett backing up early while Moss gets the needed experience to challenge for PT.

Lawson is a 2Guard/Wing. I am not sure why his weight is a worry - he is a perimeter player, not an inside banger. I think FSU's starting QB last year was 6'5" and 165 - and football is a little more physical than playing on the wing.

Gerald Drumgoole could be an important player for us the next few years, if we get him. Hope he has a great visit.

Drumgoole averaged 19.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists last year. He's transferring from Rochester, NY to a prep school in IN.

I don't think Lawson is a PG and I doubt he will play that position in college. He may have some passing skills, but he will probably utilize those from the wing.

PG depends on Campbell, Moss and Gravett.

He has decided to wait and sign in the spring. Most likely there will be more big schools offer him. Our best chance was to get him in the early signing period.

I saw that too.

Looking over these posts from last summer I had a couple of things wrong. Lawson does seem to have some skills as a PG and looks like a polished shooter. Campbell and Moss are both better than I thought. Especially Campbell. Bryant looks taller than 6'6" and with those long arms he may be a threat inside. Very athletic guy. I was disappointed with Silva and Kotsar in the first two games, but both picked things up a little against Norfolk State. Gravett and Haase have been pleasant surprises. I don't think Cudd figures into this year's plans unless the light goes on for him later.

I can see a lineup with Lawson, Campbell, Bryant, Kotsar and Silva. Haase and Gravett off the bench will be a potent first 7 players. Add in Frink, Moss and Couisnard (if he ever plays) and that's 10 guys who can contribute.

Whoops, forgot about Minaya. He played better against Norfolk, but his shooting is still suspect.
