XEYRIUS
Going into this season, we were excited about Xeyrius based off his ability to do two things as a sophomore - very good perimeter shooting (41.5% from 3!) and rebounding (4.8 per game). My concern with Xeyrius going into the season was that he was a bit of a blackhole, a 3 point chucker, who offered little else on offense. Besides his shooting, he doesn't really possess any guard-like skills. His height and quick release allows him to shoot over guys. So that's what he does. And it's all he's ever done. This goes back to high school where as a late bloomer he averaged 11.8 points and 9.9 rebounds a game as a senior at Wayne.

LANDERS
Trey Landers has a much more well rounded game than Xeyrius. A true tweener at 6-4, Trey can't just be content to shoot over guys like Xeyrius. His height would dictate he's a guard, and he has guard like skills. He can penetrate and create offense. But he's built like a tank, strong enough to finish at the rim. And strong enough to bang with forwards. At Wayne, as a senior, he averaged 16.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists. Thus far into his sophomore campaign at Dayton, he's averaging 9.9 points, 5 rebounds and 1.8 assists and 1 steal per game.

OBADIAH
Like Xeyrius, Obadiah was a late bloomer. He was 6-foot-2 as a high school junior, 6-foot-5 as a senior and is now 6-foot-8. Basically this is a guy who thought he was a guard,only to wake up in a forward's body. Toppin averaged 17 points, eight rebounds and four assists during his final prep season at Mount Zion. Compare those numbers to that of Landers, and they are almost identical to Landers senior numbers at Wayne.

CONCLUSION
If you're hoping that Obadiah can fill in for Landers, I don't think that's delusional thinking. There's hope there.
Toppin has a very different body type than Landers. Toppin is much taller and Landers appears much stronger.
