Let's do a some stat. Let's say that the chances of us getting the following players is as follows (and I'm being very pessimistic here):
Tony Parker: 20%
Amile Jefferson: 25%
Trey Zeigler: 25%
Alex Oriakhi: 10%
The odds that we don't get any of them is 95% x 80% x 75% x 75% x 90%, which equals 38.5%. That means that the odds that we get at least 1 is 1 - 38.5%, or 61%.
For Shabazz, Tony, and Amile, the chances that we get at least 1 is 43%. So, I come out of this thinking that there is a strong probability we get at least one.

In any case, my point was in reference to playing SF. If we're talking about playing PG/SG, I agree that Sulaimon is plenty tall and long enough. His game is very reminiscent of Nolan Smith's (with perhaps a better 3pt shot). He's very much in the PG/SG mold, not the SG/SF mold.
While it's not a shock to see us not listed in the top 25 recruiting classes, it is good to see the ACC has 6 teams listed total. And even better to see that two of those are Wake and GT. ('Cuse and Pitt are also listed but no sense in counting them yet.)
I'd love to see the ACC viewed as a power conference again, and it of course starts with recruiting.

If it's any consolation, I've put you back in my will.
Just saw two interesting tweets on twitter:
Mark Watson: "yessir"
Tyler Thornton: "meet the brand new guys"
Prefer not to read into this, but gotta wonder.
