PG, Tai Strickland (Rod's son) verbally commits. This completes the 2018 class.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

I wonder if that Finke kid would give UW a look? Grad transfer from Illinois 6'10". I think they offered him back when he was in high school.

I think this guy has defense and rebounding issues.

If Happ declared for the draft, he'd be at least a usable rotation option but that doesn't seem likely. He will likely go to where he gets more minutes.

Boy, maybe I'm way off on Happ but he just doesn't scream NBA player to me. He's a great college basketball player and he'll probably bounce around the G league or whatever it's called now for awhile but at some point, don't you have to be able to shoot the basketball?

Happ isn't going anywhere. He's doing the 1000% right thing here. He can get advice from NBA scouts and talent evaluators on where he'd be picked and what he needs to improve upon for next year. I believe Nigel Hayes did the same thing. He'll go through the process, see what they say and then almost certainly return to school as I see virtually zero chance he gets a first round grade.

He won’t get a 2nd round grade let alone a 1st.

He'll be measured at about 6'7.5 on the first day and that'll do it for him going pro this year. They'll tell him to fix his shot. Everything he already knows. Still there's no reason for him to not go through it and gain the experience and better prepare himself for next year.
