Tony Bennett visited with noted Coug Ian Furness on KJR yesterday, and it's an nice interview from a guy who is knowledgeable about the program. Nothing super earth shattering from Bennett, but there are a few interesting things that came up:
- Even Bennett sounded excited about Klay Thompson and DeAngelo Casto, and it's sounding more and more like they are the two freshmen that are most Pac-10 ready and likely will be counted on the most out of the newcomers.
- Bennett said he's not sure which freshmen, if any, might redshirt this year, saying that there's going to be a lot of competition. It will be interesting to see how that shakes out, because if you're going to have competition, it's likely going to happen during the early nonconference schedule, meaning redshirts might get burned up in the process. Just something to keep an eye on.
- Bennett was reluctant to heap too much praise on the team overall yet, especially the athleticism of the new guys. He made it a point to say that Derrick Low, Kyle Weaver and Robbie Cowgill were pretty athletic, and athletic with the ball in their hands. It sounds like the new guys have a ways to go in that respect, as expected.
Anyway, it's definitely worth 10 minutes of your time.
