Next year there's going to be a 10 strong rotation that can match up talent wise with most anyone in the country.
Gone/out of rotation: VJ III, Moore, Jobe(not that he was in it this year) Taber, Roth(who if he stays will be the 3 pt specialist)
What is interesting about this is IU's highest rated recruits play spots that we have the least need. I think Rivers and Hulls are locks to play the PG spot. Capb (not going to try to spell his full name) will probably take Taber's spot and obviously Pritchard will be in the mix down low. That leaves Creek, Watford, Elston, Dumes, Jones, Williams and Story fighting for the wing spots. Talk about competition. If you wanna win a spot in this rotation you better bring it every single day.
Also, I found this quote by Hulls:
"Purdue had been recruiting me for about two years already. Indiana and Coach Crean recruited me for only two weeks. So, I mean, that was all I needed to hear to know I wanted to go there."
How can you not love this kid?
