This guy wouldn’t be a significant Sidibe upgrade? Just for the defense, rebounds and health alone?

Yes please. I actually think next year could be decent season with average center play. Jalen, Buddy, Elijah, and Marek are a decent starting place. I expect next year to be a pleasant surprise. Jim always does his best when expectations are low.

Damn... there are lots of QUALITY bigs out there as fifth year transfers this year.

If ever there was a time where it would be beneficial to dip our toe, this would be the year.
Brooks can play, but Blackshear's my top choice if he doesn't stay in the draft. Solid build (6'10 250) and reliable inside force with a 15 ppg average and 7.5 rpg. He's especially tough on the offensive glass (13.7% offensive rebounding rate), and he can shoot it (33% from 3 pt.). Getting him might pull us back into the top 25.

15 and 8? So basically he’d come in and be the best player on our team. Yeah, I guess I’ll take him.

Isn’t the center the quarterback of the zone, thus requiring a pretty good knowledge of it. I wonder if that precludes JB from looking at a center for a 1 year transfer.

They both shot 33% from 3 though.
OB's shooting percentage will go back up when we get a healthy PG in place.

buddy doesn't need to be on athletic scholarship
Haven't you heard...we can't do that. It will hurt people's feelings and ruin team morale!;)

If Blackshear is available as a grad transfer it would be insanity not to pursue him.
Second Team All-ACC.
Talent at both ends.
A real presence in the middle.
Perhaps the best of all the hundreds of transferring players.

Have we not already gone over this? Buddy is remaining on scholarship. Unless Blackshear or a McD's AA is coming on board, then maybe. But even then, I'd doubt it.
