Why bring in Nick Zeisloft to an already crowded IU back court?
IU news release says he brings experience and outside shooting - but - we already have Yogi, JBJr, Stan and Robert Johnson competing for minutes. Yogi brings experience and leadership. Stan got plenty of experience last year. I doubt JBJr will play like a rookie after the experience he had on the big stage in HS. Robert Johnson is also highly regarded. Even if we play small a lot - it seems like someone gets squeezed out. Hope he really brings that experience and leadership - I was not too impressed with how that worked with EG2.
The back court did not look like an area of need and outside shooting was supposed to be covered with JBJr, Max, Robert Johnson and Priller all noted for shooting from distance. We needed Bigs and if we lost out on those - why not hang onto the scholarship? Maybe betting Yogi leaves as a Junior or JBJr becomes the next one and done?
Would have liked to see another Big or at least a SF type. IU was bound to play small next year but I hope I don't see too much of Hanner rebounding and defending with 4 guards surrounding him.
