    Prophetic post. Landed a guy I spent 28 on who someone else had spent 115 on with 2 W3 and 5 W12. He passed up at least 7 higher bidders. I guess it's possible that ALL of them landed higher priority guys, because he's not that good. Still, interesting.

    Re: Official DriveTheLane Thread

    The all local strategy worked out as I picked up two ties (One where I was the only team in the same region for E local pref and one where I was tied with one other team in the same conference) and got a 51/34 class without ever looking outside my local recruits.

    Brian Walker was the prize of the group, a 61.9% TS and a 27/5/4 stat line at SG in HS. He will be our starting SF and our #1 option on offense to replace the SR twins Jacob and Eric Clark.

    Peter Scott will be a 3 point shoot specialist with his 43.5% 3pt shooting skill

    Sean Larsen is very smart. He will be a great bench coach

    7-1 SF?

    I have a conundrum in L31. None of my FR have moved the needle, so I'm trying to get my best lineup possible from what I have. Problem is, I have 3 big men who are more talented than anyone I have for SF.
    Underwood, 6-11: Pros: Best rebounder in the conference as a FR, reduced playing time last year but can still put up those #'s. Also an excellent shot blocker. And, as a FR was the best non-PG passer in the conference. CON: DOES NOT score P shooter, and shot 32% for the season last year (34.7% TS). Averaged around 1 PPG (4 PPG as a full time starter FR year).
    Estep, 6-9: Pros: another excellent rebounder and shot blocker, also a competent scorer, good for 10-12 PPG 59% TS last season. CONS: Not really any, good all-around player. Not as good at REB and Passing as Underwood, but better scorer and on the same level as a shot blocker.
    Price, 7-1: Pros: Can score from anywhere. 41% from 3 last year with a high volume. 61% TS. Good defender, get's some steals and blocks (1+ each/game). CONS: Weak rebounder. 7.2 RPG last season at PF.

    So... Do I put Price at SF, where he'll basically JUST be an over-sized scorer, with some defense? This would allow me to put my two E rebounders in (important for a team that typically shoots poorly). He's also a P athlete, so smaller SF's might run around him. He's a better passer than he's shown, I think, which would be brought out more at SF.

    Last season, I had Price at PF, basically all the time, then started Underwood, unless there was a strong scoring C on the upcoming opponent, and then I swapped Underwood out for the better defending Estep. But Estep is too good to bench on a talent starved team, as is Underwood and, obviously, Price.

    I played Teller in L31 as a 6'11" SF for 9 games his SO year. He's a E Handling and P Rebounder so I thought it would be fine. He turned the ball over 18 times in 9 games and has turned the ball over 56 times in 63 games at PF. His assists were basically the same that season (20 ast in 9 games at SF vs. 36 ast in 15 games) so there's got to be some kind of penalty.

    I tried it for a couple of scrimmages, and his fouls spiked. I'm guessing he fouls a lot trying to defend speedier and more athletic smaller players. So that experiment ended. I need him on the floor for 40 minutes, lol. I may try Estep at SF, which would blunt his rebounds and blocks, but we'll see. For now I'm testing out the 3 Freshmen for a second round. Wimbish might be passable. Swartz has has intriguing results.
