    Cyclones.com updated the basketball roster with heights and weights https://cyclones.com/roster.aspx?path=mbball.

    I'm always curious to see how everyone progressed. Not a ton of real new info. Biggest takeaways for me were Conditt up to 223 which is great (I think 225-230 is the best slot for him as a rim runner) and Griffin up to 217. It would be great to see Griffin challenge to be in the regular rotation as a small ball forward off the bench. He and Conditt could be a fun pair to watch off the bench together.

    Now if only we can get the update on Bolton. Without any inside knowledge, I feel the best roster for us this year would be:

    Nixon
    Bolton
    Haliburton
    Jacobsen
    Young

    Conditt
    Jackson
    Lewis
    Griffin

    I think this is the year that Prohm stretches the rotation to 9 - although, I would expect only 10 min/gm or so out of the 9th guy. Don't want to take away anything from the other guys, either. Would love to be proven wrong and have a bunch more competition.

    Solomon and Jacobsen around 240. Pretty beefy.

    Leech at 165, wow. I thought he would be at least 170. He needs to EAT.

    Personally, if Jacobson starts at the 4, I would go Conditt all day over Young.

    We haven't seen a healthy Young for 2 years. If he can stay healthy I think he is going to surprise some people. He looked great on the Italy trip.

    Why is that?

    I like Conditt’s range on help defense, but Young is our best post defender. I don’t see much of a difference on offense

    I think Jacobson first off the bench would be good. He can eat against second team posts.

    ISU got eaten alive in the post last year in several games because they had no one like Young. Jacobson tries, but he gets out muscled at times, and tires easily. Made that Iowa guy look like an All-American, which he was far from being.

    I sure wish I had this problem.

    I practically have to fast for days to lose a pound.

    Are they going to release our cheerleaders height and weight soon? Been waiting on that

    I'm sorry, but Young doesn't really do anything at a high level. He's a big body and won't get pushed around. But he has no offensive game really and is not a shot blocker. Plus he's a liability on pick and roll. Conditt has a similar offensive game, but he can block shots and is a better perimeter defender.

    Only two decent size post players, and Jacobson got eaten alive by any decent opposing post presence last year. I guess I'm expecting the post to be a sieve again this year.

    Those all would qualify for me as “decent size post players”. And I’m not sure you’d want any more than that in a P5 rotation.
