@PaulBiancardi who is a better fit for Wisconsin stone or ellenson? Who is more likely to stay in state? #AskCoachB

The simple and best answer for the first question is: both. They are each outstanding big men in the Class of 2015.
Henry Ellenson is a strong and skilled post player with excellent shooting range and plenty of upside. The Badgers have been on him and are making him a priority. He was in attendance at the Kohl Center when Wisconsin recently beat Michigan State.
Diamond Stone is in the Badgers' back yard and his name has been on our boards since his freshman season. He is a legit 6-foot-10 post who has the skill to face the basket with post moves. That's rare at such a young age. He still needs to learn how to give maximum effort all the time, however.
Both fit extremely well in Bo Ryan's system because the Wisconsin coach has been successful utilizing big men who face the basket.
I believe Stone has the better chance of staying in state. He has two outstanding options in Marquette and Wisconsin.
