  • Averaged 16.6 points, 14 rebounds and 2.2 blocks as a junior
  • Makes mid-range jump shots
  • Runs the floor (comment also made after game in which he played poorly).

  • Looks a good three inches taller than what he was last year (April 2008 Boo Williams Invitational)
  • Has been working in the weight room
  • Made official visit to Providence this month, along with another Michigan native, guard Duke Mondy. Mondy committed to PC.
