BSN spoke with Mamou head coach Joel Darcel about Celestine recently.
BSN: What kind of player has he been for you?
Darcel: Since Kendrick's been playing for us, we've had 34 wins in the last four years.
BSN: So he played even as a freshman?
Darcel: Yeah, as a freshman he saw a little bit of playing time.
BSN: What are some of his strengths?
Darcel: Probably his biggest strength is he can run a 4.4 40. And I'm talking about four-four-zero. He's only 17 years old right now. He's young. So eventually, he's probably going to be a 4.3 guy. And he weighs 190 pounds. That doesn't happen often to a small school like us.
BSN: How do you think he's going to do making the transition to college ball?
Darcel: I think he's going to do great. I'll be really shocked if he doesn't see playing time as a true freshman.
BSN: What is it about Colorado that made him want to come here?
Darcel: One of the coaches came down here and sat down with him with a chalkboard and just gave him a list of things of why he should go to Colorado. And I think the opportunity to play early is what he saw.
