2016 General Recruiting

With Mick out recruiting and someone correct me if I'm wrong, but we have 5 scholarships open for 2016... Where do we stand with that class? Who are the main targets? I'm assuming Mick grabs 1 or 2 JUCO big guys. Our roster for that season right now is:

So. Justin Jenifer
So. Jacob Evans
So. Tre Scott
Jr. Quadri Moore
Jr. Gary Clark
Rs Jr. Deshaun Morman
Sr. Troy Caupain
Sr. Kevin Johnson

5 guards, 3 forwards and 0 centers

I'm confused. Where is Ellis, Shaq, Cobb and Deberry? Are you meaning the year after next season?

We could add a big guy or a transfer still this year. If we do, we'd have 4 scholarships for 2016.

Yeah I know a guy like Ellis is hard to come by, but he is the epitome type of center we need year after year in this system. Versatile and a good shot blocker

There are a couple shooting guard transfers or a kid named Kj Walton that could probably be here in 2015 class.

I think we'd need another PG, a shooter, a wing, and 2 C added to what we have.

Just a thought, why must we recruit a couple of "big guys"? I know that baseball minds used to believe that when drafting a player they'd grab guys based on need instead of the best player available. Nowadays, they have changed their philosophies. I know that in baseball you can trade guys away and etc., but why can't we change our style of play based on the best guys that we could get? In a nut shell, I'm saying that if I were given the option of landing a top 50 shooting guard or going after a 6'11" center who will probably not contribute until he is a junior or senior, I'm taking the top 50 guy every single time. Just my opinion.
