If we get this guy, I'd have to imagine the package of Brooks and TJD would be pretty unlikely.

Still probable we get at least one of them, but probably not both in addition to Nnaji.

We are likely  going to lose four rotation players: two bigs (Juwan and Fitz), and two wings (Romeo and McBob).

I see no reason why our ‘19 class couldn’t be two wings (Keion and Bouknight) and two bigs (TJD and Zeke).

That works strictly by numbers and positions but doesn't account for other players developing. If we do take two bigs and two wings we'll need some returning players to drop Dow a position. Meaning Hunter and Anderson will need to be able to play the 2.

We’d have Phinisee, Green, Durham and Bouknight as true guards, with Hunter, Brooks,  and Anderson as swing men.

Four true guards, just like this year.

5 - Davis, Forrester, Jackson-Davis
4 - Smith, Moore, Thompson, Nnaji
3 - Hunter, Anderson, Brooks

That's a lot of, should be, capable players for not a lot of time. If Hunter or Anderson can develop their handles to play the 2 guard and Smith improve to play more if the small wing we would be in business. There would be a logjam of good players 3-5 if we land Brooks, Nnaji, and Jackson Davis. I don't see that happening.

All true, but for us to take four in the '19 class, one of those names would no longer be a Hoosier, whether it be for early entry, transfer for more playing time, etc.

Getting what we wish for in the 2019 class will undoubtedly come at a cost. The five star kids expect to play immediately whenever they go. The kids currently on the team want/expect to play as well. The scholarship players as this team is being constructed are all going to be good enough to play for high major programs. I don't like transfers, but it seems inevitable considering who we are recruiting. Unfortunately, sometimes this is a hard business.
