A question for Hubman and a few other folks who have brought up the Curry kids lately
Lets pretend that VT is out of scholarships right now for next year.
What would you do if I told you that right now there are two sons of VT all-time greats who are High School seniors in ACC area states? Should VT drop scholarship offers to Harrell and Wood to offer them? Should VT offer them as walk-ons? I'm dead serious about this.
I'll give you a little bit of info about each. The first is a tweener, he's maybe a shade over 6 feet tall but right now is a shooting guard all the way. He has struggled in his high school career on the ball and with physical competition. He has a strong outside shot, but against competition that has been able to force him to go to the rim he has been turnover prone. When forced to play the role of a true point guard, even against weaker competition, he has struggled and it's questionable right now if he'll be able to play that spot at the low major level. He has moderate interest from low-major programs, though most are unsure of his college position. He's a double-digit scorer at around 18 per the last couple years. Given his father's height he may grow another inch or two.
The second player is around 5'10 and is a true point guard with a decent outside shot scoring around 16 per but with a good assist number. His competition level also isn't the highest but he has a thicker build than the first player and handles contact better. His athleticism is good and has younger teammates he has done a good job setting up on the season. With his father's height it's conceivable he could hit a significant growth spurt. His downside at the college level right now mostly appears to be his size. His recruitment has started later than the first player but he is receiving low-major interest as well.
So what should Seth do? Drop the offer to Wood/Harrell? Offer the kids at walk-ons? Not recruit them at all? Fwiw Greenberg has seen both play.
