So, when Fred was hired, I remember lots of discussions about how his offense doesn't need or necessarily want a big guy filling up the lane. Is he readjusting his vision now that he's in the Big Ten?

I believe it was more he want's the right big that is athletic.  Not getting a big just to have one.  Needs to be able to do a little bit of everything, which it sounds like Kojnets can do.

I think this is pretty much it- ideally we’d play 4 traditional “guards” and “forwards” with 1 “big” that can do multiple things like Andre. Stretch the floor, pass, handle the ball away from the basket as needed but also rebound and guard traditional bigs in the paint. It’s a really difficult skill set to find (especially at the collegiate level) but if you get guys that can do it they’re nearly impossible to guard. Andre will be an all-B1G guy before he leaves if he stays four years- he’s got that much potential and talent amongst his skill set.

He’s a stretch 4 that can play 5 if we go small or in a pinch 

I think the might view Wilheim as more of a Lat type. Probably not someone who can play a ton at the 4 until they put muscle on.

 

I dont know if it will be quite as lean as Lat but he will need to muscle up a bit to even be a consistent 4 in B1G play.
