At FSU Alabi anchored the (I think, if I remember correctly) the #1 defense in the country. That has got to hold some sort of currency with Casey, who loves a defensive anchor at the 5.

My guess is that we'll get a Vet C (but not one of the bigger names), who will play ~25 minutes a night, and slowly give Alabi and then eventually Jonas more minutes, but he'll help with mentoring them.

EDIT: Hopefully somebody like Jeff Foster. He'd be perfect.
