Ditto here - Layssard and Berry look in great shape. Akele looks like he put on some muscle as well. Guards looked great from outside in the shooting drill.

Ant as in Anthony Nelson? If so that's good. Hope they keep tabs on Jeenathan Williams too. Those would be 2 fantastic guard gets for us.

Hardest part with Juiston is how clamped down he keeps his recruiting process. Not tweeting heavily about it, no "Top 3" like a lot of other recruits usually have. Good for him keeping this close to his chest but it's gonna drive every fanbase following him up a wall.
