My recruiting class involved a lot more battling than I am accustomed too but I was pretty smart with my funds and was able to get most of the guys I wanted. I had to offer a lot of mins/starts so I will probably stink for one more season but the following year we should be strong (although I will lack frontcourt depth).
Ronald Groom/JR/PG/6'4''/206 lbs
I am going to play him at SG this year as he has been promised a start (an F in both of my system so that will suck for awhile). As of now he's not a very good player but I think by the time I am trying to make a tourney run next season I think he can make a successful SF in my system.
Dennis Stanley/FR/PG/5'6''/151 lbs
My best teams have always had 2 elite pgs. I think with Emery and Stanley I will eventually have that. I offered Stanley mins/starts and will have to start him at pg this season (again f's in both of my systems). Next year he will likely be my backup pg/sg.
Raymond Litherland/JR/SG/6'0''/181 lbs
He'll play SF this year considering that I only have a couple guys who can play that position. The hope is to move him to SG for the following season. Either way he might be the best defender i've ever had once he gets his speed up a decent deal. With his already high defense rating and all the other guards on my roster having high potential in defense, I think I could have some scary perimeter defense next season.
Woo is woeful. Woot woot a pun. High fives for pun lovers. Oh no one. Woo just shows how badly I needed bodies. He was cheap and might be kicked off my team before next season if I have some decent recruiting cash lying around at the end of the season.
Joseph Rowe/FR/PF/6'9''/225 lbs
I had to spend 8k to beat a sim for this local guy. I was really surprised about that. Usually I can beat sims with 3-6k. He's a couple seasons away but because of the needs of my frontcourt will have to play 15 or so mins a game immediately. Usually these low post high potentials for bigs are very large so I wouldnt be surprised to see 50pts of growth there. If that happens he will be a terrific pf/c.
