So what is Hittle's status? Does anyone know? Is he injured/redshirted? If he's redshirted, why? We need big bodies now...like today!!!Best case scenario, he becomes Liam Robbins from Drake. Anyone who watched that kid play last year would never have expected his progression to year 2.
You can't teach someone to seven feet tall, but it's going to be on the coaching staff and on Hittle to improve and round-out his game and his body. He's a project, but one that could pay dividends. I unfortunately am going to have a hard time being patient with a project like Hittle when we're going to need post help starting next year.
Whether he plays 4, 5 or 6 years there is nothing in Hittle's background or high school film that says he would be any help down low, or at any position in the future. He has the same skill set as all the other 6' 10" plus recruits we've brought in.Does anyone understand the new rules? The way I figure, Hittle would have 5 more years to play 4 whether he plays this year or not.
