Yeah i am thinking Etienne. He would provide good minutes at the 4 especially when we go with 3 small guards. Him and Kofi on the boards and Curbelo, Frazier, and Miller at the guard positions. Either way you slice it meaningful minutes will be available at the 4 and 5 spot for someone of his caliber. He would allow the others(Grandison, Hutcherson)to spend more time at their more natural positions. Damonte as well.Wait, did Etienne reclass get shot down yet? Seems like a good candidate for it, and what a difference it would make for him to play a year with Kofi before he leaves.
In general, I can see a few positive reasons for a reclass. I forget restrictions for NBA draft, but age limit/ 1 year out of high school. Starts process sooner. Instead of another year of HS, could do a redshirt year/ college transition year and get to practice against college players, especially with/ against Kofi.If Etienne reclasses, it won't be for us. Why would he want to reclass to just be Kofi's backup? If a reclass is coming it could be Weston. You would think if he truly was committed to the prep school route, he would've said where he's going by now. Definitely see the staff trying to get him to reclass and commit before Juwan has any chance to get him to Ann Arbor for a visit.
