Add that Cal is consistent in his view of the program as a player's program. He is getting kids to commit to UK on his ability to prepare them to play in the NBA -- that means half-court defense. But this team should be very good in the half court with defensive pressure still leading to fast breaks.
I know that you rarely see kids redshift in basketball anymore but IMO I think it would be best if WIllis were to RS this coming year.
You can't pigeon hole Calipari with 'traditional' records of PT. Cal has shown that he is very flexible with his style of play and recruiting. He will come up with the best option for PT to keep all these kids happy and the #1 way to keep them happy is winning games which this team will do in spades.
What happens to Polson next year? Also Malone, Lanter, Long? Are they on scholarship this year?
I'm not sure I ever see Cal redshirting a guy. Wit5h the talent that Cal is bringing in every year, if a guy can't contribute by his fourth year, he won't in his fifth.
Josh Harrellson contributed a lot more in his last year than he had the previous ones.
Recruiting is fluid and sorry to bust your bubble but there is no way that he continues to bring in the #1 class every single year. At some point the NBA will change the 1 and done rule or the NCAA will put some limits on things if the natural cycle itself doesn't take over first.
When you have a loaded roster like we will have next year it would be beneficial to both the individual player and the team to ease the possible burden of figuring out PT for so many kids. It also enables a kid to garner knowledge of the system, to get better, and to ultimately provide sr leadership down the road. Don't be surprised if someone like Willis is willing to RS.
