    This should be useful when thinking about our team now and in future years. This is in order of class, not by who may or will start. Italics are players that are committed for future seasons.

    PG: Hill (2017), Chiozza (2018)
    SG: Frazier II (2016), Carter (2016), Hodskins (2018)*, Francis (2019)**, K. Allen (2019)
    SF: J. Kurtz (2015)*, A. Murphy (2016)***, D. Walker (2017)****, Robinson (2018)
    PF: Finney-Smith (2016), Hayes (2019), Dickerson (2019), Stone (2019), Mooney (2020)
    C: Horford (2015), C. Walker (2017), Egbunu (2018)**

    * - walk on.
    ** - not eligible in 2014-2015 season.
    *** - will be eligible to play beginning December 2014.
    **** - injured, will not play in 2014-2015 season.

    Here is an alternative view that shows the flexibility some have to play multiple positions. Wing indicates the pool of players who can play the 2, 3 or both. CF is "Combo Forward" - i.e. someone who can play both 3 and 4. Post is for guys who purely play the 4, 5 or both.

    PG: Hill (2017), Chiozza (2018)
    Wing: Frazier II (2016), Carter (2016), D. Walker (2017)****, Hodskins (2018)*, Francis (2019)**, K. Allen (2019)
    CF: Kurtz (2015)*, Finney-Smith (2016), A. Murphy (2016)***, Robinson (2018), Stone (2019)
    Post: Horford (2015), C. Walker (2017), Egbunu (2018)**, Hayes (2019), Dickerson (2019), Mooney (2020)

    Brandone Francis was measured yesterday.

    From the Nike Summit, they posted the International players measurements:

    Brandone Francis
    Weight: 208 lbs.
    Height (w/shoes): 6'4.5"
    Wingspan: 6'7"
    Standing Reach: 8'6”
    Hand Width: 9.25”
    Hand Length: 9.5”

    "-Francis doesn't stand out in any one measurement historically, but has a ready-made college frame that should help him contribute as Florida when his skill set allows him to see the floor for Billy Donovan's program."

    Is Francis "international"?

    I seem to remember folks saying several months ago that Francis already was 6' 6". I guess that he has shrunk a little since then. That does happen as you age.

    Francis appears to be more solidly built than Robinson. Probably he can play the 3 and perhaps even some 4 when he puts on 10 lbs or so.

    Francis at the 4? You're just stacking up the silly comments today themistocles. He's a 2 guard man, come on.

    Quit picking on The Mist Man. He's just basing his statement on the posts several months ago that Francis had already grown to 6' 7" and was well on his way to 7'.

    Well, that was penned when I was thinking about possible quick teams, using DFS as center. Admittedly, in such a scenario, either D. Walker, or Frazier would likely play the 3 and 4, with either Hill and Chiozzo, or Hill and Francis at guards. So, you are very likely correct.

    Admittedly, at 7', Francis would likely make a pretty good 4.

    Francis is a scorer, likes the 3 ball, good handle, competitive. 2g or a little three. Strong, hopefully gets in, he could help with depth as a outside scorer, Frazier and him on the floor at the same time would give team plenty to think about.

    Updated to reflect Francis being ineligible and Keith Stone's commitment. Welcome aboard!

    I wonder if the K. Stone's commitment may push out someone?
    Next year are 2s & 3s are packed.
    Frazier/Carter/Francis/Graham
    Robinson/Murphy/Walker/Stone

    Someone from this list will not be here at this time next year, whether it's Frazier or Robinson going pro then there is Francis's situation as well as Graham's injuries. Or DeVon's bad luck with the injury dropping him behind players. I won't blame any of them, and will follow & root for them.

    Is there a reason why Donovan and Edwards aren't on the list? Donovan was the team's only perfect free throw shooter last year. Yeah, I know he only had 4 attempts but it's still nice to be 100%.

    No, I was referring to the first post which includes Kurtz and Hodskins, but not Donovan and Edwards.

    I usually don't include non-scholarship players. I made an exception for Kurtz because he received so much playing time last year and have again for Hodskins because he is a "preferred walk on". It's not perfect, but the list is so crowded as it stands.

    Any news on whether Kev. Allen will sign in the late signing period? We need him.

    I have no news, but why do you think we need him? If everyone comes back, we have six guards without him.
