I was able to catch up with MU asst coach Tony Benford to get a recruiting update on MU's top 10 rated 2009 class. The challenge facing the new staff was to go out and try to find players who can fill the spots left by the loss of the terrific senior class PG Dominic James, 2G Jerel McNeal, G/F Wesley Matthews and C Dwight Burke. Listen as Coach Benford breaks the class down player by player.
Coach Benford provides updates on PG 6-1 Junior Cadougan, 6-3 JUCCO 2G Dwight Buycks, 6-7 SF Erik Williams, 6-7 F/PF Jeronne Maymon and 6-9.5 PF Brett Roseboro.
Did you ever wonder what type of style Buzz Williams and his staff look for in a recruit? How about the geographic area a particular asst coach targets? Coach Benford lays it out for us.
Did you ever wonder how Chris Otule and Liam McMorrow fit into MU's plans? What about Jeronne Maymon and Brett Roseboro? Coach Benford tells us.
