    I think, long-term, Sledge is more of a 2, so pairing him up with a tall point is going to be important. In that regard, Long seems like a good fit with this team as we move past the Christopherson/Allen/McGee/Lucious years.

    Really? I don't think we really want a 5'9" guy playing the 2. That would be insane.

    From the little I've seen, he looks like a scorer/combo guard more than a passer/true point. Additionally, I prefer point guards with some length to allow them to see more and to have a little extra ability to get the ball to where it needs to be. I'm not saying that he won't ever play the point, but I would expect another guard who is more of a pure point to be on the court with him for a majority of his playing time over the next four years.

    I expect Sledge to be a change of pace backup for most of his career. PT depending on who we are playing.

    Re: BASKETBALL RECRUITING: 4 visitors for homecoming

    No way Sledge is a 2 for most of his career. He's a pure point guard from what I've seen of him and he can also get to the rim when he wants to. His outside shot is very shaky but he was looking to dish 99% of the time during the CCL which is the opposite you would expect out of a league like that.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    With as quick as Sledge is it would be great if he could be a guy who could get out and deny opposing point guards and take away the dribble drive. We haven't had anybody who could do that in awhile.

    Seems like that. I guess he should go ahead and commit to the Cyclones, huh?

    From the videos I've seem Naz Long and SDW are very similar players. I suppose SDW is an inch or 2 taller but I'm not sure. Both are combos and look almost interchangable.

    I agree.. The Cyclones definitely appear to be his favorite at this point and he would be a great first pick-up for the 2013 class.

    Fred said Sledge was the only true PG on the roster.
