    Peach Jam: Sunday Morning..........Orton is described at an excellent passer for a post player.

    Orton Looking to Start...............Orton will make a decision in the late signing period and playing time will be a key factor in his decision. Orton has narrowed his list to Kentucky, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Texas, Kansas, UCLA and UConn.

    If he's looking for PT he should LOOK NO FURTHER! We'll have BJM vacating the starting C slot and we have no real PF ( Lighty will be playing it because we need him to ) outside Kecman who he could likely break in half. LOL

    There is a HUGE opportunity here for a big guy like Orton to step in and write his ticket. Plus there is a boatload of talent at the outside spots so he could be the missing piece his one year!

    That was finally a good post and right on target. I've never really thought of it that way. We will have Dallas but that's all. My concern is that he does not want to do sign until the late period which would put us in a bind.

    I actually think that HELPS US, Litl.

    We can be more certain of BJM's status by the late signing period. Thus we don't risk re-using his ship in the Fall and then something happens that makes him want to stay a 2nd year and we are in a real bind.

    Now we do have an open ship right now so BJM's would be a 2nd one. But the APR thing is looming, with KK dealing another double blow and also losing Wallace, so maybe you can't risk using both in 09 - in case something happened where we lost one.

    I'd much rather wait on Orton's decision in the Spring ( yes there is the risk that we'd get no one ) than sign a project or much lesser player in the Fall. We need real HELP INSIDE in 09-10. I haven't heard of anyone on the radar BESIDES ORTON who could provide what we so desperately need.

    I'm not sure yet another JUCO is the answer ( how good is Mathis anyway and he can't help at the 5 like Orton ). A project like SVT doesn't help for that season. A JUCO 5 might be of interest but I haven't heard any names pop up.

    I'd like to see another marquee name pop up from the class but so many are already spoken for it seems dubious at present.

    I wonder how Orton's recruitment will be effected by taking on Big Z. Is that a sign that they feel they have no chance at Orton? Will they bother to keep recruiting him? ( hoping that they can use the 1&d BJM's ship on him - and that the APR will not preclude that signing )

    Most of the guys feel that Ohio State will continue to pursue Orton because he is just too good to just say bye-bye. I am not very optimistic of our chances of landing him and really never have been. I think that TM is well aware of the APR situation and will recruit numbers accordingly.
