Why preferable to Jones? We need a scorer if anything imo?
same reason at jt's. i haven't seen him, but i've seen a fair number of reports from people that have. and basically none of them say that he's very good. given that they're all kstate fans, and likely desire him to be decent, that's uninspiring.
good point about his style being a decent fit. i can see the appeal of having another guy with range on the court along with spradler and mcgruder, assuming they're both back.
the other thing is that i just hate jones because recruiting him is so fucking stupid. there's no possible way that getting him is a good thing. every single semi-realistic possibility that leads to an open 'ship for him is a killjoy. like, if it's mcgruder that sucks because mcgruder's good & is due to get great minutes & for him to want to leave prolly means the whole staff other than figger are constant dicks. or if it's russell, then it's retarded because you're kicking out a guy with the exact same skillset as the guy you're bringing in, except the guy you're kicking out is better and has more upside and is from arlington grace prep that produces multiple d1 players each year. or if it's myles, then the staff are a bunch of giant assholes because they recruited a guy with no real chance of making an impact and then kicked him out a year later knowing it would cost him a year of eligibility. etc, etc. it's all just so fucking stupid and depressing.
