WOW , THIS MAN IS A BEAST IN THE PAINT FOR SURE , OK HE'S NOT A SEVEN FOOTER LIKE FORMER PITT CENTER Aaron GRAY BUT THIS KID IS WAY WAY WAY WAY BETTER THAN GRAY ON TALENT ITSELF . NOW CAN BLAIR DECLARED LEAVING FOR THE DRAFT AFTER THIS SEASON ? WELL FOR HIM HE MIGHT GO BECAUSE MONEY ISSUES FROM FAMILY MEMBERS BUT TO ME , BLAIR NEEDS TO STAY ALL FOUR YEARS HE'LL BE A FIRST ROUNDER FOR SURE BECAUSE BY THAT TIME BLAIR WILL BE A GOOD SHOOTER AND GREAT LOW POST MOVES . LOOK AT SAM YOUNG TWO STAR OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL HE STAY FOUR YEARS , NOW EVERYBODY IS TALKING FIRST ROUNDER FOR YOUNG . SO BLAIR WHICH IS A THREE STAR PLAYER NEEDS MORE GAME . FOR NOW PITT CAN'T AFFORD LOSING BLAIR AT ALL , BUT MORE TALENT IS COMING FOR PITT LIKE DANTE TAYLOR AND OMAR DIGGS , THE MORE FOUR OR FIVE STAR PLAY FOR PITT THEN WE TALK ABOUT A FINAL FOUR TEAM IN TWO YEARS.

                                                                                GO PITT

PITT'S BEST PLAYER : BLAIR

Not sure the monikker of Best Player can be put on Mr. Blair, maybe most valuable....

DeJuan is a beast... he has dominated the paint in the toughest conference in college basketball... as for him staying 4 years, we have a few things going for us... one, he is undersized, thus his NBA stock might not be as high as if he were a 7 footer... two he is from Pittsburgh... he loves the area and wants to make the city proud, did you see him light up as the Steelers made there way into the arena the other night??? lastly, he has a chance to be the man, with Young and Fields leaving after this year, it will be his team... as you poiinted out Young staying and improving his stock helps.... last few to leave Pitt early (Chris Taft) not a promising career choice... 

With all that said... he needs to stay on the floor... he takes too many cheap fouls... reaches on defense... when he is on the floor Pitt is tough to beat... when he is in foul trouble (Villanova and Louisville) we become a pedestrian team...

I like the mention of recruits coming in... Dixon has made a Pitt a force this year and years to come...
