How do Ringer and Henry compare?
no inside knowledge here but here's my take from what I've read about them.
Ringer: more of a "back to the basket" post player. 6'9'' 240'ish. more of a position player. pretty decent athlete. Will depend on muscle and positioning more than vertical to do his damage inside. More of a true 5.
Henry: more skilled offensively. Good perimeter J from 12 to 15 ft. A little better athlete. Looks longer in the highlight film I've seen but that's certainly no accurate measure. More a true 4 who can play some 5. Probably 220 - 225 right now.
Both will need to strengthen up a bit but that's true of virtually all HS bigs. Both are great additions to Martin's efforts to bring us back to basketball prominence. Ringer is prolly a 4 yr kid while Henry might be a 3 or even 2 yr kid based on how he develops.
I cannot wait to see this line up in the CLA:
C - Ringer & Chat
PF: Henry & Kacinas
SF: Thornwell & Carrera
2G: Notice & Thornwell (some McKie)
PG: Johnson & Shaw (add Ellington after fb season)
I really don't see any of the Horn recruits sticking around. I feel certain I am leaving someone or another out but these are the kids that come to mind. Much much more athletic team. We'll have some inside game to help open up the outside game. We'll be much more physical and rebound significantly better.
Theus - if he can shoot as projected - will get some wing exposiure.
Word is that Williams is staying but I'm not 100%
Williams NEEDS to stay and provide some form of senior leadership
