This could wind up being Shaka Smart's deepest team at VCU. Rams will play 11. Have reserves that would start at other A 10 schools.

Palpable buzz out of VCU surrounding Melvin Johnson. 6-3 SG made 66 3's last year as a sophomore. Should make between 80 and 95 in 14-15.

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 57s
Terry Larrier may not immediately start for VCU but he'll hit his stride by the time the Rams hit A 10 play. Kid has no ceiling. Pro.

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 50s
Early prediction on VCU's starting five --- Briante Weber, Melvin Johnson, Jordan Burgess, Treveon Graham, Mo Alie-Cox....

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 47s
Mike Gilmore gives VCU a different look at the 5. 6-9 freshman is a pick and pop big that can face the basket. Has a chance. Very skilled.

Mo Alie-Cox is one of the more physically imposing big men I've seen in person. 6-6, 250. Will start for VCU at the 5. 8 and 8 guy.

VCU may have a better team this year than last but Rams could enter A 10 with a spotty record. Non-conference slate is BRUTAL.

Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein 1m
The guy who's going to surprise people on VCU is freshman PG Johnny Williams. Built like a fullback. Big time facilitator. Going to play.

Quick thought: JeQuan Lewis may be better served playing in long stretches off the ball. VCU's second best shooter behind Melvin Johnson.
