Redwoods LC: 2022 College Draft Needs
A #1 cover defender
Opponents shot 33% when initiating at X against the Woods.
The Woods scored a league-low 0.9 fast break goals per game in ‘21. They need two-way threats who can turn their defense’s hard-earned stops into scores.
The Woods really don't have any offensive needs; cover defenders and transition sparks are their top priorities.
But if they draft an offensive player, it needs to be someone who can play without the ball. This offense is full of dodgers. It went through some slumps. Spacing suffers with six dodgers on the field.
Their lows were low; but their highs were high. Jules Heningburg and Charlie Bertrand are savvy enough off-ball to make it work. The 2-2-2 set head coach Nat St. Laurent installed on Long Island did wonders.
When they were clicking, they were the league's best offense -- converting on 33.5% of their settled possessions. Bank on them running it back with the same offensive core.
