Athleticism wasn't what you were getting from Burns. Good passer, good post moves, ability to finish. Not athleticism so if that's your concern we didn't miss out on someone who would change that prognosis. I do think we missed out on a good player, wish we had gotten him.

Kotsar is vertically challenged but is very quick for for a 6'10" player. Not many tall players can put the ball on the floor and get to the rim like he can, and he was finally finishing at the rim towards the end of last year.

Haase is also very mobile and his outside shot is an equalizer, taking the opponent's bigs away from the basket. He is more of a 4, so no worries that he is not a shot blocker.

Cudd is not athletic - but how many 7'1" players are? There are plenty of athletic 6'8" - 6'9" players out there - but they ain't ever gonna be taller.

And Silva is athletic as they come, so we are fine for next year. We are still recruiting for 2019 and I would be surprised if we do not bring in another talented inside player. We good.

Kotsar is a good athlete. All Maik needs is more confidence. I saw his confidence grow last season over his freshman year. If he can continue that, and his other improvements, he can be a very good player. Needs to dunk more.

Haase can score from anywhere. I expect his percentages will go up next season.

Cudd has skills. He can shoot. Needs to be quicker, and maybe that will come.

Silva should be a stud next season.

Athleticism wasn’t the best word. But regardless our post play is on track to be pretty subpar once Silva is gone next year. Incredible how a final 4 run has done nothing for us in recruiting.

We'll see. I think Kotsar is very close to being a very good player and it'd be incredibly foolish to write off Cudd or Hasse already. Not going to say anything on Frink until I see him get some minutes.

I like Maik's game. He's not a rim protector but he is physical and active. You have to work very hard to beat him.

I like his game also. I look forward to his two upperclassman years here. I think he will do very well and become an even better player.
