2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

Three out of four Xavier freshman are on campus now. Semaj Christon, James Farr and Jalen Reynolds have all moved in. The fourth, Myles Davis is expected to arrive shortly as well.

The word is all four will be good to go this coming year.

Also, when the freshman arrive, they get measurements taken.

Semaj was measured at 6'3

James Farr was measured at 6'10" and 230lbs.

Jalen Reynolds was measured at 6'9.5" with a wingspan of 7'5"!!!

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

To put Jalen Reynold's wingspan in perspective, Anthony Davis measured 6'10" with shoes and 7'5.5" wingspan.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

Better make it 20-20 or 23-17. If we end the reg season only playing 30 games, and with only 17 wins, we gonna have to win a-10 tourney.

For some reason people don't consider him a 5. HE IS A CENTER.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

We had a guy a couple of years ago in Larry Sanders who was 6'10.5" with a 7'5.5" wingspan. He left after 3 years and was drafted 15th overall in 2010 despite not exactly setting the world on fire his last season.

That kind of length will have Reynolds as a pro prospect if he can play even a little bit.

At what level? Yes, at X, I'm sure he'll see time at the center position. If he develops and ends up in the NBA some day, it will be as a power forward.

His natural position is a PF with the ability to step outside and knock down jump shots, like Andrew Nicholson.

I am not sold on Mack being in the highest echelon.

Recent results should count, but Mack will, for me, be made by his next three years rather than his first three years.
Indeed.

It is no secret that Xavier's unquestionable success over the past three years was largely attributable to Jordan Crawford, Tu Holloway, and Mark Lyons (and to a lesser extent, Kenny Frease) - all of whom were signed by Sean Miller.

Brad Redford is now the only remaining Muskie signed by Sean Miller.

Chris Mack's first recruit was senior Splinters Robinson.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

Muddy, hasn't Shaka Smart and Chris Mack been head coaches at their respective schools for the exact same amount of time? (3 years) So if Mack isn't gonna get credit for 3 NCAA tourney bids, 2 A-10 championships and 2 Sweet 16's in 3 years, then clearly Shaka Smart can't get credit for the Final 4?

Indeed.

At least with Mud being back, all of our entertainment is back on this board.

Muddy and logic don't mix too well. I think all that "Xavier envy" gets in the way of clear thinking.

I hope 5 years from now Muddy is still holding his hat on the fact that the Canty/Latham/McKenzie/Martin class wasn't nearly as good as it was ranked.
