Is he a 1 or a 2?

1 or 2 as in Point Guard or Shooting Guard? He's a Shooting Guard

Thanks. Man if we are able to get Mason the back court will have 2 very good scoring options.

TSD, Harrell, Mason, Bowers, and Atewe as our starting 5 wouldn't be too shabby. If he comes, our only glaring weakness would be at the C spot. Hope he comes.

We will have some depth at Center with Delp and Griciunas and they can give us some different looks Delp has shot blocking skills and enough size to rebound and Griciunas can stretch other teams defense as he can shoot outside pulling other teams Center away from the paint allowing Bowers to post up and also rebound without having to worry about center double teaming him.

1 of them could be an attrition casualty if we bring in all our signees plus commits and Mason.

Who will get processed in order to make room for another transfer?

`That's the Million $ question. We could be looking up to 3 processings when all is said and done.

would not surprise me....either you do what it takes and/or prove that you have what it takes or there is not room for you....welcome to the top of D1 basketball, like it or love it, your choice.

I like the idea of being competitive. Hopefully, once Coach Pearl is able to get his recruits here, the Basketball program will run smoothly with good kids/players coming in and having a great time and having success at AU and vefry little processing will have to take place.

Saw Delph last year, and he looked really thin and needed some major weight put on. Don't think he is SEC ready for a year or so more. Griciunas is more of a PF than a C and lacks the quickeness. We have 2 or 3 guys that can play C, so we have a little depth; however, I don't see any of them, maybe Atewe, as a quality SEC C right now.

if mason were to also jump on board, how many players would have to leave from the current team? 2 or 3?

If everybody qualifies then either 2 and Thompson goes back to walk on status or 3.
