Standing 6'9", Luke Fischer (pictured) is a vertical obstacle for his opponents, but his 210-pound frame can be muscled around in the low post. Current IU pivot Cody Zeller is hardly an earth-mover himself at 240, but he's proven capable of surviving the Big Ten wars.
Fischer has some similar skills to Zeller, so if he can keep his quickness with extra weight, he can play an integral role sooner rather than later.
Vonleh, at 6'8" and 220 pounds, is already solidly built, but the potential is there for his frame to add another 20. Again, he can't sacrifice the athleticism and handle that makes him a special frontcourt prospect, but a 240-pound man with dribble-drive skills will be a handful for Big Ten defenses.
Devin Davis is 6'6" and 200 pounds, a build that cries out for the small forward position. He's an aggressive rebounder and remedial shooter, however, and those traits could push him inside to the four. Big Ten power forwards can floss their teeth with a 200-pounder.
A true small forward, Troy Williams of Oak Hill Academy (Hampton, Va.) stands 6'7" and 190. He has an occasional perimeter stroke, but Tom Crean most lauded his rebounding ability in his class announcement. An extra 10 to 15 pounds would serve him well in crashing the glass.
IU strength coach Je'Ney Jackson should be licking his chops in anticipation of this group's arrival. The crew has tremendous upside and skill, but nearly all of them will need additional bulk to adapt smoothly to the college game.
