Ooooooof, oh man I am extremely excited for next year. We have our team set not only for next season but for the next 2-3 years. Lots can change, but I’m feeling good here.

Cairo is much smaller and a jumper who can handle the ball pretty well for a wing. He's more of a 3.

Ronnie is a 4, muscular kid with big shoulders.

Totally different games.

Check out the Woodstock games on livestream. You'll see they are totally different style players.

I would say Cairo is more of a 2/3 hybrid

Can we get some comps on the new guys? Not having seen any of them play, I'll hazard a guess on just one; Dominguez - Putney

Gasperini -
Dominguez -
DeGray -
McCrory -
Garcia -
Fernandez -

We need some kind of diversion from now until who knows when.

Gasperini is a little Luke Bonnerish, I think.

Cairo is a little like Unique mcClean better outside shot. Can jump but maybe not as electrifying as McLean in that aspect.

Good call on Dominguez. Still rough edges.

DeGray is built like Loe Roe but is not Lou, of course, although he shoots better from lon distance. He needs to greatly improve his man to man defense and increase his intensity of play before he can start at the A10 level effectively.

Idk about Fernandez for a comparison. Good passer. Quick first step. Haven't seen enough of him on film.

Garcia looks like Mikey. Drives to hoop splendidly. He looks like his own man. The freshman film room on him says it all.

Cairo seems to play like Santos a bit too.

Degray reminds me of Sampson Carter in the few highlights I’ve seen.

I feel like we are forcing comparisons here. That could just be me, though.

DeGray sounds like he could help, especially if he can shoot and also help out in the post from time to time.

I have a feeling I'm gonna be a big fan of Cairo McCrory and Garcia. Both look very athletic and aggressive defensively, and crazy athletic offensively

Agreed. I don’t see any Putney in Dyondre.

Dominguez is like Dibaji long lanky better 3 point shooter probably not as good in the midrange

^ I have watched them all. Touri does a great job. I also went back and looked at last year's. He only had time for 4 of them and didn't get to Tre but they are worth revisiting.
