    Here he is against good talent. He is pretty quick, undersized, can handle it, and looks like he can shoot it. Sees the floor well. My concern will be on defense in the B1G trying to match up against some much larger guys.

    i like his game. kid has handles and quickness. 2 things we currently lack BIGTIME at the Guard position.

    Doesn't look like it's in the cards, but if Beverly could grow about three inches, the comparisons to White Chocolate Jason Williams are inevitable. Beverly hails from east KY, not too far from WV, Williams' home.

    I'm definitely getting a sleeper vibe from Beverly. He is playing well against and with elite talent already. He might be ready to make significant contributions right away. He's a freshman eligibility-wise, but he's like a college sophomore in age and experience.

    247 shows about 10 schools that were interested in braxton. butler was one of them. he had one official visit to holt's program, but there was no offer.

    edit: rivals lists about 20 interested schools and 10 offers (no butler, which would have been his second-best).

    Unfortunately, we cannot just go with 3 guards next season unless we move Wesson to the backcourt. I guess this is assuming that CH and Braxton have a heart to heart:wink:

    I guess what I am trying to say is that if Braxton does not fit into CH's plans it is possible that he might not stick around.

    No, no, no...don't start that! This team needs to at least see what Braxton brings to the table. We only have ten players on roster, and we lose Tate, Kam, and Lane after next year. That gives Holtmann six schollies to work with (five if he brings Kyle Young with him). Plenty of room for Beverly, who had an unusual recruitment after verballing to Miami. I wouldn't put too much credence into a lack of a Butler offer on those grounds....they already had a similar PG in their 2017 class in Indiana player Cooper Nease, who had verballed back in 2015.

    i think cj and braxton are safe this season and next. i think it's '19 when it may get a little dicey. the '18 class must have a point guard. the expectation is that jeremiah francis (if not someone else) will be a buckeye for '19, and few rosters have three pure point guards. holtmann tends to run a backcourt-oriented offense, but none of the aforementioned players strike me as off-guards... at least not in the sense that any of them are stellar perimeter shooters.

    if lyle somehow makes his way back to the team, then '18 gets hairy.

    CJ graduates after '18-19. you are correct that it'd be difficult to have three PGs happy on the roster when they are only one year apart, but say our '18 lead guard commit is a guy like Cohill, who is more of a CG than a PG? I definitely think Beverly, Cohill, and Francis all could coexist, especially since Holtmann is known for a lot of 3-guard line-ups. I agree that consistent outside shooting might be an issue in that backcourt, which is why Goodwin will be nice and maybe getting Ahrens back wouldn't be the worst thing. or having someone like Christian David come over with Holtmann in the 2017 class.
