Doumbia getting in gives us immediate size at the 3 which was our biggest weakness heading into the season.

I wasn't really comfortable with us going with 3 small guards who max out at 6-1 with Felder, Holden, and Gravett, with Kotsar and Silva at the 4 and 5

Doumbia gives us a guy who can step in at the small forward position at 6-8 with great athleticism and a consistent jumper from 3. Dude has off the charts potential. He's gointg to be in a position where he has to have a good season for us to win tough ballgames this season.

I'm still worried about our depth at the small forward position with us only having Doumbia and Minaya as our only true big wings, but Doumbia getting cleared really eases my worries about this season.

Thank goodness Doumbia is cleared! I was hoping to add another 3 to the group.

Might be obvious but some of those classes in the OP have to be wrong.

Doumbia is more of a 4 offensively than a 3 at this point. The important thing about landing him is that he can defend wing players but offensively he isn't a 3 yet. With some development he'll be hard to stop but he needs to refine his game. Even without refinement he's capable of giving us some quality minutes as a freshman.

In his recruiting write-ups, he was supposed to be very athletic but also had a good shooting stroke from the outside. So even if he is not a true 3 with his overall game (yet), he can give you a little of what you want a 3 to do - hit the outside shot and stretch the D to open up the inside. It sounds like Haase can do that as well in the 4 spot.

Doumbia may never be a true 3, but then most 3s do not have his length and inside skills. It sounds like we just got both deeper and more diverse with the skill sets of our players.

Holden would be a junior I believe. He should still have two years of eligibility after sitting out last season.

If his outside shot is consistent enough offensively that is the only thing he brings that fits the 3 right now. He needs to work on his handles a good bit to get to the 3. Defensively though he brings enough athleticism to defend the 3 and that is big for us. Offensively he is a 4 for his freshman year, defensively he is very versatile.

Guessing the starting lineup will be Myers-Holden-Booker-Kotsar-Silva.

I seriously doubt that Myers will start over gravett or beatty. And I doubt booker starts either. I think depending on who we are playing we will probably play with three guards and two bigs. Holden hassani Beatty chris and maik is my guess. Also with ra being gone we have room for another grad transfer maybe.

Myers, Holden and Booker are three guards. They're all on the small side though. 6'4 and under.

I only say they'll start because they're all upper classmen and Frank loves upperclassmen leadership. Gravett didn't play well last season, so starting him wouldn't make any sense. Myers and Holden for their scoring and shooting. Booker for his perimeter defense.

If not Booker, then I agree with you that Beatty starts.

Silva will be our star this season, but Maik will be the glue - the steady, every game performer. Be prepared for Chris to turn pro after this season.

Silva absolutely lit up the summer league against some professional players.
