Randle is the only one to declare. Eagerly awaited to hear the twins say they're staying. WCS and Young will no doubt leave.

The good tourney showing may have screwed y'all up. Before the tourney their stock had dropped so significantly the question wasn't whether or not they WOULD go, but whether or not they COULD go... or at least would it be worth it to go.

Then Cal did his little tweak, which I suspect amounted to him gathering the players around for a "come to Satan" meeting, and told them if they didn't play well together and unselfishly in the tourney they could all forget about getting drafted or drafted highly.

Then they went off in the tourney and brought their draft stock back up to where they might be attractive to pro teams again; be interesting to see what they do.

That is ridiculous. Im assuming it's sarcasm.

UCONN exposed the twins to there inability to play against smaller faster guards. Their lateral quickness is in desperate need of improving so i doubt they jump to the pros considering only one is a projected to be a late first rounder.

Every college player that goes pro after only a year has 1 or more deficiencies, and could benefit from another year or 2 in college.

But the NBA has now adopted a habit of drafting on potential, and doing their own developing.

The twins aren't going to get any faster by being at UK, or in the NBA for that matter; and any lateral quickness improvements can be accomplished anywhere.

When they get drafted it'll be for their strengths, which are great height for their position... the drawback will be that quickness shortcoming, but every player comes with warts of 1 sort or another.

Keep being told per multiple industry sources that Florida is in the mix for Michigan transfer Jon Horford.
9:07 AM - 17 Apr 2014

His brother is Al Horford and it looks like we're the favorite to land him.

Man, I'd love to land Jon; Michigan's guard-oriented system didn't use him well or much at all.

Billy's great at developing the big men; and we could definitely stand another 6'10" 250 lb. forward next year.

Yep. Would definitely add depth in the front court. I hope we get more little brothers of Gator greats

It'd also be like getting some senior experience that we didn't already have; and it's some pretty damn good experience having been to a NCAAT finals and an Elite 8.

No doubt, especially with our senior class leaving.

I don't recall him ever seeing the floor tho. Even when their bigs were in foul trouble. How good is this kid?

Nothing special.
Will be good for us to have someone experienced though.
I hate to say it, but I think he could bring as much to the table as WY did this year.

Good rebounder, not exactly a scoring threat. Averaged somewhere around 3 points and 4 rebounds in 14 minutes . With Harris still being up in the air him and Horford could each have around 20 minutes a piece at the Center spot (which is really need depth at because I want walker no where near it if he doesnt put on a good 10-15 pounds of good weight.)

He got some time in the tourney; I heard his name some... I remember wondering why he hadn't followed his brother to UF.

He got 11 minutes in their 1st game against Wofford (4 pts., 3 rebounds), 5 in their 2nd against UTex (no stats), 8 against UT (1 point, 4 rebounds), and 14 against y'all (6 points, 3 rebounds).

His primary PT problem at UM was that they play small-ball and use a 6'6" kid as their power-forward.
