My friend called me a couple hours ago screaming about this kid. He's pretty excited.
I don't pay much attention to basketball recruiting. Anyone know if I should be excited? I'm sure I'm going to hear a thousand reasons why I should be so on Friday when I go over for steaks. He's just a basketball nut.
7-1 with a long wingspan and an sleak build... ya there is a lot to like. Unlike the Odens of the world he doesn't look like he is packing 285+lbs which seems to be the killer on the joints.
doesn't sound like he can shoot, but hell at his size and lenght if, he can run just put him down in the post and dominate the paint. With him and some of our young forwards we could really be a force on defense.
From there its just a matter of having some shooters to get enough offense to win.
Basically he doesn't need to score a lot just alter the game at the rim for the other team.
Block shots, rebound and set high post picks and look out
