In the video on the other page he seems to use his body to shield the defender really well. I really like his runner too. Would like to see how good he is at making the simple play too. Definitely a lot of bigger boys in the picture.

Not the good vibes I got from Galloway, Leal, and Geronimo. Starting guard spot isn’t likely. Good minutes early on could be questionable also. We’ll see.

Otherwise fairly good thoughts and comments.

Am I wrong to think it will be difficult to get a PG Like Curbelo to commit to IU while RP is still here? Especially with the possibility of Lander committing the following season? Whoever commits is likely to be back up next year and if Lander commits will likely be pushed further down the depth chart.

He certainly would be a welcomed addition, but I just don't see someone like him, who is clearly skilled enough to play and possibly start somewhere, wanting to commit to a situation where he will be down the depth chart for a few years.

I doubt too many recruits worry or even think about who might be recruited in the class behind them, i.e., Lander.   As for worrying about RP being ahead of him, maybe a little concern but too many of these kids have drank the Kool-Aid that they're the next greatest and they think they'll just take over a program.  That's using a very broad paint brush and in no way does it apply to every high school kid, but the fact is, it does happen with too many.

An interesting tidbit here: "I’d been talking to the assistant coaches … coach (Mike) Roberts and coach (Tom) Ostrom there for a while …"

Roberts making an impact on the trail. Also not sure how long a "while" is but Roberts has only been on the staff officially for a couple weeks.

Interesting. He left PR because he was one of the best players because he wanted more of a challenge. Even though he talks of starting early in college I wonder if he is still open to going somewhere where he will again have to earn his time.

When he was on JV as a freshman and came off the bench early as a sophomore he said he didn’t handle it well. That concerns me for fit.

The thing is we don’t know what the staff is telling him what his role would be. We might not see him getting significant minutes early but they might. They are making it clear they are trying to get a pg and most of them are pretty highly rated.

I don’t see Archie as the type to blow smoke up a kids butt. At 6’0” he has one position. Where would those minutes come from? Are Rob’s minutes going to decrease when he becomes a Junior and Senior? I don’t see that. If the kid had versatility to knock down shots or play some at the 2 maybe. Rob could play some at the 2 but if our best lineup has Rob at the 2 anymore than 5-8 mpg I think we have bigger problems. But he has had many other schools on him longer that he seems more enamored with so the point is moot imo. I do see us getting a PG, but I think we will see that with someone with more size and the ability to make a shot outside of 10 feet.

I wonder if our next commit is more likely to be a point guard or power forward.  If it’s a point guard, unless there is player movement (which there probably will be), then we might be lacking in big bodies in a couple of years.

Nick Baumgart on Curbelo using Synergy data and comparing him to Hassan Diarra.

Diarra 17.4% TO rate on 299 possessions vs Curbelo's 17% on 317 possessions is a wash. Offensively, Diarra seems to be touch better.  From reports, he's better defensively than Curbelo. Although Diarra isn't perfect fit for Archie's system, he had the better numbers last summer.

Curbelo's work from Gauntlet indicates:

•Better in 1/2court v transition

•Good around basket

•Poor shooter beyond 12-15'

•Some questionable shot selection

•below average in 2-man game
