"but we need to land another 5 I would prefer a FR over a 5th year and I would love to ee it be a kid like Black/Lowell H/Auggie someone who can gte up and down the floor and block shots and rebound"

I think the offer to Smith negates a long-term high school big. The big we land next year will have to have immediate impact and that will likely be a transfer. Without Smith, we can go after two bigs. But with the current situation the program finds itself, we need to start winning. I like Maxwell from Liberty/Kansas, immediately eligible and has two years. Not a shot blocking presence but can give us minutes backing up Tilmon. While at Liberty scored 15 pts against ND, 22 against Princeton, and 20 against Winthrop.
