Haanif Cheatham, 6-6 195# Sr Guard, Rivals 4-star #76 player in Class of 2015

 

Norm's take:

Probably the best senior transfer we've ever had. He has the reputation as a lock-down defender, so he can take away the other team's best offensive weapon.  But he can also score.  Look at those shooting numbers.  Across 4 other seasons, with the exception of his sophomore slump, he's consistently been in the high 30s from deep.  But he also gets to the rim and is strong enough to finish against contact.  Question mark is his health.  I know he had a shoulder issue at FGCU with his shooting arm.  Is he healthy?  If so, and if he can avoid the high number of turnovers (which is the biggest concern I see on paper), then he's an impact player who has the versatility to contribute at a number of different positions. Of note -- and of interest for the Shamiel Stevenson situation -- he has a full year of eligibility left, but he also has played in parts of 4 seasons already.  He played 5 games his junior year at Marquette, similar to the 4 games that Shamiel played as a sophomore at Pitt.  So ...

Matty Kavas, 6-8 200# Sr. Guard/Forward

 

Norm's take:

Tough to know what to think about this guy. His long range shooting is brilliant, but he's just so skinny. Can he guard the 4?  Let alone the 5?  I don't know.  We can spot him up in the corner or let him play the pick-and-pop and he'd be an absolute assassin.  But after he hits a trey on one end of the floor, he'd have to go play D on the other.  Now, end of game situations where we're substituting on every made basket? Yeah. He gets in there, for sure. But you don't want him coming in cold and expect him to be in game rhythm to hit those jumpers for you.  It'll be interesting to see what happens, because his shooting is such an intriguing weapon to play with. It's just how do you get him out on the floor unless he can defend the other team's bigs?

Dachon Burke, 6-4 180# Jr. Guard

 

Norm's take:

I'm impressed with what I see in his highlight film below and I'm impressed with what I saw at the open scrimmage last fall.  This kid is cat-quick.  Very fast first step and can explode past defenders on the bounce.  Finishes well at the rim and a decent shooter to boot, which is kind of a theme with Hoiberg's guard recruits.  So, even though this was a Miles kid, it's pretty apparent why Hoiberg wanted to keep him.  It would be ideal if his 3-point percentage was in the high 30s (or better, even).  Hitting 34% from deep is fine in Miles' system where you're supposed to like the 3 and love the rim, but Fred runs a system that loves the 3 like Christian Standhardinger loves Linkin Park. (Or is that Lincoln Parks?). I think there's a good chance he'd have better shooting numbers at a place like Nebraska where he won't be the first and best scoring option as a true freshman like he was at Robert Morris.

Thor Thorbjarnarson, 6-6 206# Jr. Guard

 

Norm's take:

I like Thor.  I think he's a real heads-up player.  I wish he had Matty Kavas's jump shot, because I think he could play here if he did.  I really do think that.  And I really do wish that because I think he's a good kid.  I'll say this about Thor: He has always made the most of the few opportunities he's been given here.  He's made excellent passes that resulted in points.  He's surprisingly fast down the floor with the ball in his hands.  He's crafty and clever and always giving you his best effort.  He's really just a jump shot away from seeing the floor.  Well, that and his defense.  His lateral quickness is not what it needs to be, honestly.  Especially playing man in Doc Sadler's defensive scheme. But if he could knock down 45% from beyond the arc, I think Hoiberg would figure out a way to play him.

Jervay Green, 6-3 210# Jr. Guard

 

Norm's take:

This kid at the juco level could pretty much do it all.  Offensively.  We'll see how long it takes him to adjust defensively.  Very good shooter.  Has good range on his jumper and gets good elevation with a good release point.  And he's quick to get it off, too.  He's a very strong guard and he's an excellent leaper and if he plays lock-down D, he's almost certain to start.  He's strong enough to get to the lane and finish through contact but he's also deadly enough and quick enough with his perimeter shot that his pump-fake dribble drive is going to mess some defenses up.  You bite on that pump fake and he's going to be at the rim.  So, pick your poison.  He's also a solid passer.  There's a reason he was one of the top 5 juco recruits in the country.

Shamiel Stevenson, 6-6 245# Jr. Guard/Forward

 

Norm's take:

I really like this kid. I hope he gets some kind of waiver that allows him to come in as a sophomore with 3 years to play. He can do so many things. He's strong, long arms, and very impressive leaping ability.  He's a very good perimeter shooter, but he can also put it on the floor and drive.  He's good at the pick-and-roll game, but he can also shoot well enough to play the pick-and-pop.  I mean, he has all the attributes that make a Hoiberg stretch 4 really effective.  Because he's so powerfully built, with long arms and great leaping ability, that's where I see him, in that stretch 4 role even if he's not so tall.  His strength, length and leaping ability more than offset his height.  Could easily see him as a Day 1 starter.

Cam Mack, 6-2 175# So. Guard

 

Norm's take:

Game changing speed and quickness. Not the best shooting stroke, but effective enough that, if you leave him alone, he can make you pay, but if you guard him tight, well, you'll be looking at his backside as he blows by you. And he's a pass-first point.  A real floor general.  A facilitator.  Very high assist numbers.  Striking stats are scoring vs. assists in games won vs. games lost.  When his team won, he scored 6 fewer points but dished 5 more assists. That's crazy. More than double the assists in the games his team won.  But consistently more points in the games they lost. He'll have more help playing with us and won't need to do it all himself.  But this kid is blazing fast and we're lucky to have landed him.

Akol Arop, 6-6 190# Fr. Forward

 

Norm's take:

Local kid whom I never saw play live in HS, and I wish I would have.  From what I've seen of him on TV highlights and whatever YouTube videos I can find, he has fairly typical size for a HS PF headed to play D1 ball.  Wish he was a bit taller, but the 190# weight is not concerning to me.  You go through the Rivals 150, and you'll see all kinds of guys who project as D1 PFs who aren't any heavier than that.  His biggest draw is he's a dynamic leaper with some explosive athleticism.  From what I've seen, he has fairly solid shooting form.  I'd say he has a high ceiling but he's got some work to do on the skills end.  He could end up being a career bench warmer or he could wind up being a superstar and it depends on whether he develops a jumper at least in the high 30s if not low 40s and develops some handles.  From what I understand, he can guard any position on the floor except maybe the 5, and he's a pretty motivated and active defender.  I think there's a lot of potential here and I have a sense he's willing to work to reach it.

Yvan Ouedraogo, 6-9 260# Fr. Forward

 

Norm's take:

Talk about under-the-radar.  This kid's date of birth is 3/22/2002, which means he just turned 17 two months ago.  That's young.  But holy moly.  He measured in at 6-9 and 260#.  And he's a beast.  He's strong and active and in 7 games at the U16 Euro Champs, he averaged nearly a double-double.  Love his on-court demeanor.  He's fiery, kind of like what I remember of Bruno Fernando when he was coming out of high school.  I like bigs who play with a bit of an attitude.  They generally rebound the ball well because they want it and, by gawd, they're gonna take it.  And that's kind of what I see from this kid.  Huge HUGE plus, when he comes in here, that he's 6-9 and 260 and just ripped, rather than the 6-7 230 kid we thought was coming for a visit. And, based on his age, it's entirely possible he's not done growing.  Small sample size, but the FT% ain't bad for a young, big guy. The FG% is a bit concerning.  He's getting his points in the paint and I'd want to see that number north of 50%.  A little raw on the skills end, but that size is huge. Literally.

Kevin Cross, 6-8 240# Fr. Forward

 

Norm's take:

I love this kid (love his mom, too).  Big body, kind of a dough-boy, needs to hit the weight room and work off some of that baby fat.  But this kid has good hands.  Maybe even great hands.  Solid ball-handling skills, especially for a guy his size, and a pretty good shooter, too.  Solid threat for pick-and-pop threes.  But also knows how to juke and jive to get himself some space inside to get a ball off, which is really important if you're a bit undersized at the 5 at the next level.  Projects such a great attitude and humble kid. I just wish he was a bit more of a junk yard dawg.  I like bigs with a little bit of nasty to them.  A Rivals miss?  To my eye, he has everything Rivals #122 Jeriah Horne had but with a little more size and a little more athleticism.

Samari Curtis, 6-4 190# Fr. Guard

 

Norm's take:

Last member of what's looking like a really solid and very underrated freshman class. Strong player with good length at the guard position. Can play either point or 2.  Appears to have pretty good range, but somewhat unconventional shooting technique.  But can score the darn ball.  Draws fouls attacking the basket; doesn't shy from contact; but in video below doesn't finish through contact. I would rather see an And-1 than 2-shot foul. As others have mentioned, goes about his business. Hits a shot and heads back to play defense rather than jawing; let's his play do the talking, which I'm happy to see.  Extremely, EXTREMELY good late pickup.  Maybe the best late pickup of a HS player I've ever seen for Husker hoops.  Not currently in the Rivals 150, which appears to me to have been an oversight on Rivals' part.

Derrick Walker, 6-8 235# Forward, Redshirting Junior-to-be

 

Norm's take:

When he becomes eligible next season, he's going to have to fight a couple of similar-sized guys for playing time in what should be a deep front court.  His minutes at Tennessee are low, his points per game unimpressive, and his free throw shooting tragic.  But it's hard to get in a rhythm when you enter a game at garbage time, so we probably shouldn't read too much into his stats. And his lack of minutes may also be a function of the fact that he was buried on the depth chart at Tennessee behind some fairly OK players. Y'know, guys who might get drafted in the NBA draft this year, that kind of thing.  So, it's hard to look at his stats and read too much into them. When I see his HS highlights, I see a long, lean PF with a little bit of that junk yard dawg I like to see.  Active, athletic, quick off his feet.  He'll rebound and he'll defend.  And he'll turn a drive and dish into a dunk.  That's what we need.

Dalano Banton, 6-8 195# Guard/Forward, Redshirting Sophomore-to-be, Rivals 4-star #80 player in Class of 2018

 

Norm's take:

Will join this year's freshman class as a sophomore next year. Long guard with good handles and solid to very solid passing ability.  Decent athlete.  Smooth, gliding athleticism.  Slight build.  His freshman year 3-point percentage is slightly better than Isaiah Roby's was, just for some perspective. Jump shot is fundamentally sound.  Appears to excel in transition and taking defender off the dribble.  Good at attacking the rim and finishing.  On defense, disrupts passing lanes with his length.  Averaged 1.3 steals/40 minutes as a freshman at WKU.  Shooting percentages need to improve.

He has the reputation as a lock-down defender, so he can take away the other team's best offensive weapon.  But he can also score.  Look at those shooting numbers.  Across 4 other seasons, with the exception of his sophomore slump, he's consistently been in the high 30s from deep.  But he also gets to the rim and is strong enough to finish against contact.  Question mark is his health.  I know he had a shoulder issue at FGCU with his shooting arm.  Is he healthy?  If so, and if he can avoid the high number of turnovers (which is the biggest concern I see on paper), then he's an impact player who has the versatility to contribute at a number of different positions. Of note -- and of interest for the Shamiel Stevenson situation -- he has a full year of eligibility left, but he also has played in parts of 4 seasons already.  He played 5 games his junior year at Marquette, similar to the 4 games that Shamiel played as a sophomore at Pitt.  So ...

 

 
   

 

Cheatham got an exemption to play right away last year, just like Copeland did.  But - he was a senior in eligibility last year.  He did not get to claim his third year of 5 games played at Marquette as a redshirt year (unlike Copeland, who got a medical redshirt at Georgetown his junior year.)  Last year was what counted as his redshirt year, getting a medical redshirt after playing in 10 games.

 

So if Stevenson is treated similarly - and it gets complicated because he transferred to Nevada in between, and Cheatham might have gotten immediate eligibility since he was going to a school two hours from where he was from in Fort Lauderdale - then Stevenson would be eligible immediately, but as a junior.

Norm's take:

I love this kid (love his mom, too).  Big body, kind of a dough-boy, needs to hit the weight room and work off some of that baby fat.  But this kid has good hands.  Maybe even great hands.  Solid ball-handling skills, especially for a guy his size, and a pretty good shooter, too.  Solid threat for pick-and-pop threes.  But also knows how to juke and jive to get himself some space inside to get a ball off, which is really important if you're a bit undersized at the 5 at the next level.  Projects such a great attitude and humble kid. I just wish he was a bit more of a junk yard dawg.  I like bigs with a little bit of nasty to them.  A Rivals miss?  To my eye, he has everything Rivals #122 Jeriah Horne had but with a little more size and a little more athleticism.

 

 

 

 

The last guy we got from Little Rock didn't shoot it as well, didn't handle the ball as well, was around an inch shorter, and about 60 pounds lighter in high school.  And that guy started at the 4 for us on an NCAA Tournament team.

I get you, dawg. Still seems unfair to lose a year of eligibility for playing small parts of 4 games after a coaching change where the new coach basically mislead you about sticking around.  In a just world, he'd be immediately eligible as a sophomore.
