Sounds like a nice addition to next year's squad. I am not going to sit here and act like I am some recruiting expert, but the addition of two, atheltic big men should really help here. Thats the one thing that has been missing from Waters' squad is that big man who can go deep in the post, grab boards and provide scoring. J'Nathan (as great as he was) played more like a 3/4 due to his ability to score from beyond the arc. Chris Moore hustled and played hard but wasnt strong enough. With the additions this season and next season, we should be much bigger and much more athletic down low.

Tonight we open vs St. Bonaventure. Good luck CSU, bring home win # 1!!!

I agree. These will be the first freshman bigs that Waters has brought in (Latas was his first class but he was committed to Garland). Waters brought in Kevin Francis, George Tandy and Chris Moore in that first class and they were all juniors.

This year's group of big men are more along the lines of what you're looking for. The group of Pogue, Cunningham and Ajere are definitely the most athletic and talented that Waters has had, but again, they are all sophomores and juniors. It will be good to get these new kids in with a full four years to work with. The spacing will be nice next year with Pogue, Ajere, Latas and Kevin Anderson as juniors and Cunningham as a senior and then the two new guys.
