With the announcement that LaBradford Franklin is going to be transferring from San Diego State after the current summer school session ends. We can begin to formulate a “Fantasy” roster for the Aztecs next season. This article will be based on the amount of user interaction we can get. So if you have any idea about the starting five should look please comment on this article or on any of our social media!

This is the official San Diego State roster as seen on GoAztecs.com:

No. Name Yr. Pos. Ht. Wt. Hometown/Last School
Dakarai Allen FR G/F 6-5 185 Sacramento, Calif./Sheldon High
Angelo Chol JR F * 6-9 225 San Diego, Calif./Arizona
Josh Davis SR F 6-8 215 Raleigh, N.C./Tulane
12 James Johnson JR F 6-9 235 San Diego, Calif./Virginia
20 JJ O’Brien JR F 6-7 225 Rancho Cucamonga, Calif./Utah
5 Dwayne Polee II JR F 6-7 195 Los Angeles, Calif./St. John’s
14 Aqeel Quinn JR G 6-3 200 Gardena, Calif./CS Northridge
13 Winston Shepard SO F 6-8 210 Houston, Texas/Findlay Prep (Nev.)
40 Matt Shrigley RS FR F 6-6 195 San Diego, Calif./La Costa Canyon High
0 Skylar Spencer SO F 6-9 235 Inglewood, Calif./Price High
4 Ryan Staten JR G 6-1 195 San Pablo, Calif./Piedmont High
2 Xavier Thames SR G 6-3 190 Sacramento, Calif./Washington State
D’Erryl Williams FR G 6-3 190 Sacramento, Calif./Sheldon High

Now this five man rotation is brought to you by CBS Basketball writer Jon Rothstein:

Now I am certainly no NCAA Basketball expert. Many people do know me as the San Diego State guest on SB Nation’s The Mountain West Connection Podcast. This is in my mind the strongest possible line up for San Diego State going into next season.

1- Xavier Thames
2- Matt Shrigley
3- Dwayne Polee
4- Dakarai Allen
5- Josh Davis

Jerry:
1- Thames
2- Shepard
3- O’Brien
4- Davis
5- Spencer

Michael:
1 – Thames
2 – Shrigley
3 – O’ Brien
4 – Davis
5 – Spencer

I do not like the idea of Davis at the 5, so he starts at the 4 and Skylar gets the start at the 5. I do not like Winston at the 1, so X gets the start there. Need a shooter at the 2, so insert Shrigley there. Tough to have to pick between Winston and JJ at the 3. I’ll take JJ, then have Winston come off the bench and spend most of the game playing a variety of positions. So X, Shrigley, JJ, Davis, and Skylar. All speculation, a lot of bias included, but that is what I think.

James:
Thames: natural passer, steady hand, few turnovers; shrigley:need a shooter that can create his own shot; allen: fisher loves to play the new guys in the early going, and would love to give the new kid a chance; davis: big body, rebounds; spencer: block party, plays bigger than he is, rebounds, inside shooting

Michael (SDSU Alum)
1 – Thames
2 – Shrigley
3 – O”Brien
4 – Polee
5 – Davis

Thames, Shrigley, O’Brien, Polee and Davis. Spencer will only benefit working out with Davis. He’ll be one of the first off the bench, so will Shepard if he can keep his composure, limit his turnovers and actually hit free throws. I’m excited regardless who starts.

  1. To be honest the starting five will be determined by who we play and who’s playing well… Here are my selections for various circumstances:

    Start the Season
    1-Thames
    2- Shrigley
    3- Sheppard
    4- OBrien
    5- Davis

    Against a Zone:

    1-Thames
    2- Pollee
    3- Shrigley
    4- Sheppard
    5- Davis

    Quicker Team:
    1-Thames
    2- Quinn
    3- Shrigley
    4- Allen
    5- Davis

    Against a BIG team:

    1- Winston
    2- Shrigley
    3- JJ
    4- Davis
    5- Spencer

    Most Athletic:

    1- Winston
    2- Shrigley
    3- Pollee
    4- Allen
    5- Davis

    Again, it’s hard to say early, however, I could very easily see one of the freshman inserted into the starting line up at the right time.
