    Oats Discusses Roster on JOX

    https://247sports.com/college/alabam...nds-131005940/

    Overall, he likes the current roster. Probably one big man could leave.

    Bolden from WVU looks like a real possibility, too.

    Re: Oats Discusses Roster on JOX

    Coach Oats hinted that he still may have too many bigs for what he wants to do. Says he likes to play four-out-one-in or even five-out.
    Maybe too many, if counting Watford as a big. I'd hate to see Smith or Fleming leave and he has the new commitment listed as 6-9. I also wonder if there will be times and match-ups when he will want to play two big men...this may just muddy up his system.

    I am still worried about the need for a 2nd point guard. Watford would make a full scholarship roster so someone else would need to leave if a point guard is brought in.

    Does Watford have an outside shot?

    I keep thinking of the Villanova team Bama played in last year's NCAA's.

    The thinking is we may see some transfers due to guys not fitting the new system. I wouldn't be surprised to se as many as three spots open up based off of the oversatuation of some positions and the difference in style.

    I think we're gonna see a refreshing change with this coach and staff. I really think the kids are gonna respond well to coach Oats.
    Good to see some of the recruits he's getting as well.
    Our roster is gonna look so different.

    I think some will get the message they wonít get much court time and decide to leave.

    The game is evolving. Look at UVA and Texas Tech. Both were the top rated defenses, and they built around long, athletic bigs instead of the more cumbersome PF/C model. My guess is that if Oates could build his dream team, he wants his 4th man to be a 6-7 or 6-8 stretch forward. Someone tall enough to guard the post, but athletic enough to spread the floor.

    Youíll probably also see more varying defenses in his style. Avery tended to stick with the NBA model of man-to-man at all cost. Whereas coaches like Oates who build around athletic/undersized teams tend to play with more pressure. Havenít watched his teams play, but Iíd be willing to bet they played more up-tempo zones than mtm. If thatís the case, Iíd find it refreshing. Not to speak ill of the fired, but Averyís defenses were about as fresh as last yearís gym shoes.
