Is the ACC gonna be down again?


Parrish has just us, Duke, and UNC in his top 25 and 1.

Dauster also has Louisville and FSU.

Torvik has only us in the top 10 (Duke is next highest at 15).

Duke has some failed OADers back: Hurt, Baker (failed TAD), and Moore and no top 10 recruits.

UNC has a good frontcourt, but backcourt is super young. And no top 10 guys coming in (though plenty of tens and teens).

Check out the UNC and Duke likely rotations from The Athletic.

Who knows what happens with the season, but one idea floating out there is one that leans on conference play. Our roster is head and shoulders above the ACC. We really need a guard type to step up. Though as I type it out, not having a SG that we are reasonably confident in right now could be an issue (not to resurrect the Casey issue). Really hopeful about Beekman... I'm assuming based on video and scouting report that Jabri will not be a guard...

EDIT - For some reason, I forgot about Woldo when I wrote this. Hope he can give us a good full season.
