@JonRothstein: Dustin Hogue will be Iowa State's most underrated newcomer. Could start at SF. Think a more physically developed Travis Releford.

The thing that sticks out about Releford is his commitment to the team concept.

If he's physically Releford, he'll be OK. Releford was a good athlete, but he wasn't anything.

The thing that made Releford an absolutely critical piece to a couple great teams was his commitment to the team concepts. He absolutely committed to his role as a stopper and was completely unselfish with the basketball. In 2013 he developed the ability to finish fast breaks and became pretty much the go to guy on fast breaks. But he was terribly unselfish. If he had a hole, he'd put up 30. If there was better play to be made, he gave it up and was happy scoring 4.

If you get a kid that will absolutely sell out on the defensive end like Releford did, and he has Releford's physical abilities, he could be scary.

But kids that operate like Releford don't come around much.

If he's roughly Releford's physical ability, he's probably top 1/3-1/4 of the players out there.
