Never too early to start the redshirt debate - might take time away from the PG debate though ;)

Looks like we might go from a 4 guard look to a triple tower threat! Imagine the matchup nightmare that would create.

Probably depends how much weight Epperson puts on for next year. If he can get to 240 lbs, I can see him being center with Krampelj at PF and Harrell at SF (if Khyri leaves). If Khyri stays, Harrell at PF and Krampelj at C w/Epperson backing up.

Khyri won't be returning.

And Martin is a natural 4 anyway. I can see him spiffing up his outside shot and being a nightmare at that spot. Then Ronnie at the 3 and/or Jefferson?

Things look pretty healthy if you ask me.

If Khyri's shooting doesn't improve significantly, he's going to get strongly encouraged to give it another year when he tests the waters.

I was totally with you a couple months ago, but a wingspan and good defense isn't going to make you a high draft pick in the NBA if the scoring isn't there.

I think any of the 3 can play the 4 at times. The coaches are creative in using Hegner and Martin this year to play to their strengths on the offensive and defensive ends, so I can see a guy playing the 4 on one end, but the 5 on the other.. depending on what matches up for us the best against what we'll see in the BE.

Having 3 guys like that is a great thing for our offense. All 3 are skilled bigs who can run the floor and shoot from outside to present tough match-ups. With our style we can't afford to have one dimensional paint players lumbering down the floor to camp in the paint, and we don't have to worry about that with this group

2018 (247 sports):

PG: Joseph (48) Zegarowski (105)

SG: Alexander (112) Mintz Scurry

SF: Thomas (?) Ballock (93) Jefferson

PF: Harrell (84) Bishop (128)

C: Krampelji Epperson (76) Froling (131)

Froling is actually rated #82 by 247sports and #132 on 247 composite. I already consider him a 4* player

Nick Bahe(sic) thinks Kyri returns with only a 2% chance of leaving as Kyri doesn't even think he's ready. Good enough for me.

You seem pretty confident in that statement. I think he comes back.
