RE: 2017 Men's Basketball Recruiting
It's way to early to get one's hopes up for specific names but I'm trying to get a feel for what positions we would be targeting.

I like the flow of recruits at center (Sheldon, Whitman, Seacat, Knight) and at forward (Tarpey, Prewitt, Malinowski, Rowley, Pierce). At all three of these positions we can hope that when a senior starter graduates his replacement will already have been with the Tribe for a year+. Of course we would always try to recruit over these kids but it looks like two solid pipelines.

The situation at guard looks a little more chaotic. If we don't get a guard with our final scholarship for 2016, then we are looking at 5 guards on the roster (not counting Glover), all of whom will be gone in three years.

My rule of thumb to trying to guess what Shaver wants to do is to try to remember what Dean Smith did. I seem to recall that Dean Smith liked to have Seniors backed up by Sophomores.

With only 2 or 3 scholarships available, I have to think guards will be our top priority.

Uh ... OK, maybe I don't read so well. I guess Pierce might be a shooting guard. He seems to be referred to as a shooting guard/swing man. And Knight is actually listed as a 6'8" power forward.

If Pierce can play the 2 spot, that reduces the pressure on recruiting guards though a point guard would seem to remain a priority.

I just assumed that a 6'6" swing man in high school would be a forward for us and a 6'8" forward would be a center (like Rustoven who was supposedly going to be a forward). Hopefully these guys are the kind of athletes who create matchup problems for our opponents.

Often wrong, never in doubt.

We've had a lot of transfer success at PG. Adam Payton, Sean McCurdy, now David Cohn. We do need to get a freshman in, though, since our 3 PGs are all sophomores now and there's no PG (currently) in the 2016 class.

PG appears to be the focus of the staff for 2017, based on who they've been in contact with early.
Peyton Broughton is a big time player, and again ups the level of targets we're going after. Not sure we can hang in there through next summer's AAU run, but nice tweet from his father, so, you never know where the family focus is...Keep that Kentucky connection going!

Interesting side note on 2017 recruiting, Bryce Schneider (yes, those Schneiders) just committed to play for Richmond.
Congrats to him and his family.
