Two players I could see as realistic options would be Jalen Tate (for family ties and hometown appeal/dreams) and Devin Gage (from DePaul, would be more like a Andrew Dackich type player, averaged 4.5 points and 1.7 assists per game last year. He’s down to three schools, us, Pacific and Fresno St.).

Last years team only had one true center in Wesson and was one of the better rebounding teams in the nation (top 30-35 if I remember right). It definitely helps, but there’s a lot more than height to rebounding. Length and boxing out go a long ways.

Great post OP. Lots of good ideas that were well put together. And really, I can’t disagree with you on any of it. I have long believed that Schiano unfairly received more than his fair share of blame for 2018.

Schiano is turning Rutgers around. This is his first true recruiting class. Once they go out and win more than 2 games this fall, the recruiting will improve. I expect them to become a decent team. Not someone who will compete for Big Ten titles outsides of an occasional fluke year, but not a 8-4, 7-5 team you can’t overlook like years past.

For what? Like one or two games? And while spending a lot of time playing the four instead of going against a bigger center. I love Liddell and think he has a lot of potential, but Wesson was clearly the much better and much more important player all year. If you have to cherry pick one or two games all season where you can say he was better, then he clearly overall was not better.

I tend to usually agree, but Kaleb doesn’t have anymore huge strides he’s going to make in his game. He does have things that he needs to improve on, but I don’t think those will bump his draft stock much. I can definitely understand why he would want to go now.

Comment 01 Apr 2020

Kaleb coming back is key for next years team. That being said, I think he’s gone and I don’t really blame him. If he is, Diallo has to be ready to give us 15-20 quality minutes each night. Doesn’t have to score much, just defense and rebound. 
 

Last years team was also a bit undersized, but still rebounded and defended the paint at one of the better rates in the country. Next years team might not have a true center outside of Diallo, but the 3 and 4 spots have plenty of length. As long as they box out they’ll be fine rebounding. Diallo being able to defend against some of the bigger centers of the Big Ten will be key.
