Random thoughts on next year:
DeChellis bought himself 2 more years.
I’m hoping Frazier forces teams to respect him a little more 21 feet from the bucket. If he does that, he could be All-B10 next season.
Marshall had his moments, but he will be asked to take a BIG leap forward in all areas of his game. Hey, Darius Morris didn’t play that much as a freshman and look what he’s doing as a sophomore, it could happen.
Bowman was interesting in the few minutes he got. He makes things happen; not always good things, but you know he’s going to try to do something, and I like that.
Cam has proven over 3 years what he is-a super solid guy that can come off the bench and provide decent play. Nothing more, nothing less. (Prove me wrong, Cam!)
From the few clips that I’ve seen on Travis and Lewis, I am intrigued. Lewis looks like he can be that shooter that stretches defenses. Travis is the most intriguing for me, a dynamic 6-8 guy with some handle and a midrange game. I see neither redshirting. It is my opinion that in order for PSU to be any good at least one of these two will have to play and hold their own.
Oliver’s shot got worse as the year went on. I hope he finds it. It looks to me like he’s more of a DJ 3/4 type player and shouldn’t be asked to guard other teams’ fives very often.
The bigs? Who knows. Graham and Sasa are unproven and it looks to me like the other 2 recruits are Ott-type players, one of which will take a redshirt.
If Buie does indeed leave, perhaps DeChellis will have enough recruiting momentum to fill that open schollie on an impact player for next year.
