"I think he has the ability to be a very good lead guard. He is still learning the system and his communication skills are getting better but they will need to increase because of the nature of his position. He has very good quickness, very good body control, a good passer with nice speed with the ball. I think we'll be a different transistion team with the ball in his hands and I'm looking forward to running a little bit more because of his ability."

-- Coach Donny Daniels
