Go check out the free Pro-Am vid of the recruits coming next year on IC. The Heels may not miss a beat.

They look good, but it is really hard to tell how they will be when they step foot against National Competition.......I really think if Drew doesn't start strong, you could see Strickland taking some of his time this season. kid is pretty fast and could develop nicely at the PG position. Also, he seems to have a lot of chemistry with that group.
I agree with that...But I think what is promising is A) the obvious level of athleticism and the ability to knock down perimeter shots. The rest is just details and coaching.

They will miss a beat...don't fall into that trap of depending on freshmen.
Hard to say...If Drew is OK, and he may very well be, they will still be very good. They will have lapses that this past team didn't but overall they will be tough. Of course, this could be a better defensive team than this year.

But I see Roy changing up the offense a little this season
Last season Ellingtons & Lawsons outside shooting were needed
This season with all the talent and depth inside Roy needs to score inside more
C - Zeller > D Wear
F- Thompson> T Wear
F- Davis > J Henson
G-Ginyard > Strickland
G-Drew > Mc Donald
Graves for situational 3's
Thompson & Davis should carry the team
Drew just needs to controll the tempo and get the ball to the right players .
Roy could and should run the blue team concept
Sub out the starters and give the freshmen 2 minutes at a time to increase experience .
This will pay off big time in tourney
Yes they lost 4 great players
But this team is loaded with talent and if everone gets playing time ,they could GEL late in season
