    Thanks. I don't think that it has been posted, but they list him at 5'11" 180 lb http://playerdevelopmentcamps.usahoc...layers/3052323, significantly bigger than 5'9" 155 from last year.

    Draft picks are nice since it gives the school a little bit of limelight time. They can be a bad thing, though, as they could be a distraction to the "team" ideals. Last year we had only one draft pick, but towards the end of the year really became a cohesive team where you couldn't beat them without beating them. SA has certainly learned much from the past couple of years, and will be able to teach these players in not only skill improvement and consistency, but team mentality.

    I think that it is good to have draft players since on the average they are the better players. We just were burned badly three years ago when BP and JD'A left.

    Good points. Anyway, we'll see what happens on Sunday.

    Agreed. Though I'd feel better if the source was other than the THN, given their near-disdain for covering the college game.
