    Our 2014 class is going to be sick and better than the 2012 class. Crean can afford to be very selective to finish off that class.

    Agree and I hope he is.  I would kind of like him to keep a spot open until a bit later in the process to nab one more top 10 guy, which should much easier to sell in 2 years.  There are always top players left towards the end. 

    Only caveat to that is if we can lock up JaQuan Lyle who is a lock-in top 15 player in that class. 

    Otherwise, I would like to be more selective for whatever spot we have left b/c this class will be sick!

    Blackmon has one of the smoothest releases I’ve ever seen. Hes going to really stretch the D and kill a zone.

    Lyles is a freak. The play toward the end of the clip where he has the ball at the point and attacks his defender off the dribble with a crossover and then dishes for a wide open 3 was my favorite play….6’9 15 yr olds just aren’t supposed to be able to do that….this kid may be a future #1 draft pick.

    I like Blueitt a lot too. He’s not got the best build or best hops or anything but he just flat out scores the basketball at will. He’s so aggressive and confident…I’ll take that guy all day.
