Anything's possible. ASFAIK, Bass is all in. Storr: I sure hope so.

addendum: I think we have a pretty good chance that Storr re-ups with us.
In your opinion, do you prefer Storr over Shutt? Whitmore over both of them?

Yes and not sure (only because I hold Storr in very high regard). I want both of them. I'd 100% take Schutt too, but I don't think he's as good as the other two.* Storr and Whitmore bring more to the table, but Schutt's shot is a death star.

* - Needless to say, my opinion doesn't count. lol

The question is can any of them play the point if Belo is gone? Love the idea of quick 6’4”-6’7” guys at all positions (except 6’10” center) but don’t know if they can initiate the offense. Storr seems the closest to me but not with any credible evidence. Know Goode did it his jr year but not sure how successfully. Shades of 88-89.

Bass is probably the closest to a true PG of any that are committed or being pursued. I don't think he would have much of a problem running the point.

Good question. Bass and Harris have good enough handles to easily be good secondary PGs. Whether they can be the primary PG, who knows? Probably doubtful as freshmen. Grow into it? Sure, maybe. Goode? IBIWISI (with all due respect). HS is massively different than high D1.

If Belo bolts (after the season), we could use a guy like Gortman to take the reins.
