Just for the sake of a rebuttal:I’d like to hear who those people would replace him with.
You’re going to need a heavy hitting short list if you’re going to dump him and the work he’s doing in the next couple of classes.
1. Chet Holmgren, 7-foot big/wing, Minnehaha Academy, Minneapolis
With all the proven, experienced players available, we lead off with a high schooler? Yeah, because he’s not just any high schooler. Holmgren might be the top prep player in the country regardless of class. (He ranked No. 2 in our most recent edition of The Athletic 40, and that might have been too low.) A 7-footer with a guard’s skills, a 3-point touch and elite shot-blocking ability, he’s a unicorn who could quickly change any team’s fortunes. His recruitment has been hard to read, but Gonzaga and Ohio State have been among the teams most frequently linked to Holmgren.
Nah, Wesson did the same thing the year before he left. Gives Liddell a summer to work on his game, those weaknesses that get pointed out to him by the pro scouts. Needs to play more as a athletic PF vs a college C to have any traction in the NBA.Damn EJ must think quite highly of himself because it's obvious he needs a little more seasoning if he doesn't want to be stripped 4 times a game in the NBA.
I think Gonzaga is the leader for him by quite a bit.This would help...
There's record movement in the transfer portal and among impact high school recruits still looking to make a college decision.theathletic.com
I hadn't seen that Liddell declared. I mostly agree with you. Liddell, just because he isn't as small as Duane, might get drafted in the second round. I assume he'll come back though.I'd have to imagine both he & Liddell will be back. Can't see either of them being drafted at this point.
