Interesting.

Hopefully this puts pressure on Williams. Commit before then or take this kid.

Johnson's a 2/3
Williams is 3-5
Fulkerson's a 4/5

Fulkerson is a take no matter what as has been discussed, the push for Johnson after missing Jenkins tells me they want that scoring guard they missed on with Jenkins, so Johnson is a take, that leaves Williams. That recent article about Dez Oliver and the priority Tennessee has made Williams, I just don't see them not taking him, but stranger things have happened I suppose.

Does Williams not strike you as another Admiral Schofield, in that he is a man without a true position? With only 13 scholarships, having two of those types on the same team doesn't seem like a good use of scholarships. Especially in back-to-back years. If Admiral were a JR or SR, and had had success in Barnes' system in his role, I could see trying to replicate that. Just seems like an odd target to me when Admiral is FR and we haven't seen his role to this point in Barnes' system.

I've thought the same thing. It's an interesting move for sure.

I just had the exact same thought in the RD thread. Maybe they think of Admiral as a 2/3 and Williams a 3/4? Admiral seems to have much better balls skills.

If I am an opposing 2G with ball skills, I'm licking my chops at the idea of AS trying to stay in front of me unless he loses about 30+ pounds.

I do agree. There has been talk with both guys that they could play from 3-5, maybe they attempt to trim down Schofield to be a 3/4, and beef up Williams to be a 4/5. Something to be remembered with Williams is he's up a year, meaning he should be a junior, so he still could develop physically, and the fact he's competing pretty well against guys a year older is also pretty impressive.

I'm sure there is a plan for both. Just seems like an odd path to take when rebuilding a program.

I do agree, and I don't pretend to know what they're thinking, but that would make sense to me. In that preseason preview from Lanier he raced about versatility, one reason they love Moore, can play him 1-4. I don't like that idea, but if the HOF head coach thinks he can win that way I'll give him his shot.

Williams is way better.

Another JJ mixtape though. Serious athleticism.
