Your thoughts about Matta's position may have just slipped into the "gray area" some have spoken of.  Not sure working with the players is part of his job description or even allowed.  But I truly am only passing along what others have said.  

I searched the internet (perhaps someone has better info), and all I could find is he can't travel on recruiting trips, and can't coach on the sideline. I think it's very gray, but I'd bet he can participate at minimum during practice, which is all I care about.

No Marcus Carr. Where is Morsell from? Maryland?

It sounds like Carr is going pro. UK has focused on him but he wants to get paid.

Kevin Easley Jr entered the portal. From Indianapolis. Had a huge freshman year at Chatanooga before transferring to TCU. Had a meh year there. Just bring him up bc he’s 6’7 225 and seems to fit the mold Woodson goes after. Only shot 25% from 3 on 2 attempts per game but his freshman year at chatanooga he shot over 39% on 4.3 attempts per game.

I think I actually like Bradley & Nutall better than Locke on just a quick search.

Yeah the sweet spot for this team is probably a 2/3 with good size and shooting, and Locke’s 6’2”.

I’m optimistic you can cover most minutes at the three with Stewart, Hunter, and some combo of Leal, Galloway, Geronimo. But it’s easier to see how that might fail than everywhere else on the floor. Not because those options are bad, but because they’re better suited at 2, 4, or they need more seasoning

Yea, maybe have Lander and him split the 1 and stew and X share the 2/3

I think you have 3 good choices at PG right now. Johnson's assist rate last year can't be ignored. Stewart played the point at UT-M a decent amount of time. My gut says Johnson and Lander will split time at PG. I think Johnson simply floats between 1 and 2. Stewart could do the same if needed. My biggest hope is Lander develops, and we have 3 guys how can push the ball, with 2 of them being able to float and be be productive at 2 along with some of the other youth. Not sure how Phin fits right now. 

At the end of the day, I just want the 5 best guys on the court. I think we're more than fine at PG. If anything, we need a quality big from the portal, maybe a situational sniper for the 2.

That one seems like it might have some legs

A lot of IU’s next target probably depends on 1) do they think Thompson can shoot well enough from 3 (~34% or better?) to play the bulk of the minutes at 4, and 2) can Hunter handle and defend well enough to do the same at the 3?

Nothing on Rupp Rafters, only that people wouldn’t be surprised and is rumored he is unhappy there

Is Stewart a little slight, I think I like him staying in the 1-2 range.
