    Is Josh Morgan eligible to play, or is he sitting out the normal 1 season?

    Would be huge if playing....

    Andy said Josh is definitely redshirting this season. The Trojans have good big man depth this season with both Mobleys, Goodwin and Boubicar. A year practicing against this group will definitely benefit Josh.

    Any idea of the kind of role Drake London will have for Enfield this upcoming year?

    I don’t know. Andy seemed to downplay any expectations about Drake before he joined the BBall team, and once football season ended he talked about how talented Drake is. Between having to learn the offense and defense and recover from two different injuries including a concussion, there was no opportunity for Drake to work into the rotation. I don’t think it’s fair to use last season as a guide to this year; we’ll have to wait and see.

    I agree, last season was a bit of a lost year for Drake, but I'd like to think the transition from football season to basketball season will go much smoother for his Sophomore season. There are only 4 scholarship guards (EA, Eaddy, White and Baumann) that are eligible to play in games this upcoming season, so I wouldn't be surprised if London found a way to work into the back end of the rotation and wasn't just playing garbage time minutes. He's very talented!

    I agree. Drake ‘s chances to make a meaningful contribution are better this year. He now knows the system, and even with some changes for this year, he is further ahead. Second, I don’t think White will play many minutes as a true guard. He isn’t a solid reliable outset threat; he gets his points on drives to the rim and other inside shots. There definitely is a place for Drake.

    Trigg is a year away. He is in the class of 2021. I haven’t seen any basketball film, but I understand he very highly regarded.
    Thanks for the feedback.

    USC will have past 3 years more first round picks than other team in Pac12.
    The problem has been continuity.
    Of all JMac has been the biggest overall contributor for he stayed so long
    It would be nice to have 4 star players who stay 3/4 years.
