In basketball. First off if recruiting goes the way we want it to we should be able to be getting better recruits in the future after we get winning. I don't want to redshirt a guy who might just end up tying up a schollarship for 5 years. I do realize not every guy pans out. The first person that comes to mind is Mike Evanovich. I think Wayne played him for like 5 minutes so he did not have to have him around for 5 years after he relized Mike was not big 12 material. I say throw them in there freshman year and let them figure out what it takes to make it in the big 12.
I tend to agree with you with guards. However I think it is more justifiable with big men. Give them another year to develop the strength and coordination. You see a lot of cases where big men grow at a fast rate in high school and aren't used to playing under control.
