The days of numbered positions are over

The game has changed so much in the past few years that coaches are no longer looking for 1s, 2s, etc. Numerous articles refer to just 3 positions now...ball handlers, wings, & bigs. I think that's due to a couple of factors: (1) gone are the days when you had to have a big body in the paint. Those guys are becoming fewer & fewer. (2) replacing them are the stretch 4s, guys who can shoot from deep but also bang inside. Next to ball handlers, I think it's becoming the most coveted position in hoops by coaches.

With that said, we have 1 ball handler & 2 wings committed. Now we'll see if Brey can get 1 or 2 bigs. You mentioned Bey & Laszewski. 6-10 Simi Shittu's still in the picture, and ND's been watching Jake Forrester & Ryan Young (both 6-10).
