Archie is having a hard time recruiting guards in this class.

He cant sell playing time.

 

Look at the 4 teams that Harris is visiting.

 

4 teams with not much in the backcourt. He probably starts right away. At IU, he probably wont. That's just the way it is.

My thoughts as well.

We will only have three on the roster next year. There should be ample playing time for a good guard.

They aren’t natural guards. Hunter has to develop his handle.

A top 50 recruit with 15 more months to work on it. Who by all accounts is playing like a 5 star. Yeah I’m pretty sure he will improve enough. And Brooks AAU play would beg to differ.

Then we probably aren’t going to get Brooks since he wants to be a ball handler. 
Archie and Hunter have both spoken about Hunter playing the 2. So kind of a bold declaration  
 

Playing the 2 these guys will have to guard the 2 spot as well and that will be the hardest part of bigger wings playing the 2. I have no doubt hunter and Anderson could fill and play the 2 in spots but if your relying on them getting the main minutes at the 2, that would be a gamble in my opinion. I could pay off or it could be a disaster on the defensive side of things. Time will tell. Plenty of time to figure all of this out. Luckily it’s only Aug 8th, 2018.

Coaches find ways to make these things work. I mean look at UK and Duke every year. They bring in lots of 5 star talent and everyone wants to have the ball in their hand. Not something I necessarily want to emulate but my point is IU and Archie could sell this to make it work since its hardly that connundrum.

Yes I’m sure they were all sold on being the man, playing time, parents jobs, cars and money. Just ask the disgruntled Duke player. If a top recruit is worried about PT, I’m not sure they’re Indiana material. No knock against Carton, but Arch will play the best players to win now. A top recruit shouldn’t be worried about that.

Well, the season isn’t too far out so we shall see. Unless he strictly plays spot minutes at the 2 behind Romeo I don’t know what scenario he would play the 2 in?

This would be 2019 he would play the 2

Snow said in his column today that staff wants 2 guards in this class because they feel they are short on guards. 

He specifically stated IU currently has 4 guards on the roster, with 1 being Romeo.

That leaves 3 guards for next year’s class. This is why we need more guard options for 19’.

Snow slotted Damezi and Hunter at the 3 spot for this year and didn’t say anything about them being shooting guards for the 19 season.
