Top 10 Front Court's in College B-ball

John Gasaway (who?) at lists Vandy as the 5th best front court in the country for next year. (Insider account needed) Here are his comments about Vandy......

5. Vanderbilt

For a 6-foot-11 shot-blocker surrounded by the likes of
Jeffery Taylor and John Jenkins, Festus Ezeli plays a surprisingly large role in the Commodores' offense. True, it's a role that comes and goes, as Ezeli struggles to stay out of foul trouble. But when he's on the floor (23 minutes a game) he commands the attention of opposing defenses, often by pulling down an offensive board and/or drawing a foul. In other words, feel free to be impressed by Ezeli's 59 percent 2-point shooting, because it came while he functioned as something like a co-featured scorer alongside Taylor. Speaking of Taylor, his 2-point accuracy's declined in each of his three seasons, but the 6-foot-7 wing is nevertheless adept at drawing both attention and fouls

What I'm wondering is does Gasaway consider Jenkins to be part of the front-court? No right? He is just mentioning him as the one of the three go to guys on the offensive end. Still I would have thought they would have mentioned Lance and Steve at least in passing?
