seems to be a pretty good athlete, aggressive to the basket and active on defense.  I truly think after traudt committed to Virginia it was we’ll get any forward we can.  Kohler was a long shot from some of the stuff he’d said in interviews.  To me personally I think this kid and green were pretty interchangeable when I watch both players films and most people seemed okay with a green commitment.  Gotta think their is going to be attrition next year as well and they don’t want to leave open scholarships this year if they don’t have to.  Either way this year we just wanted to get some pieces in place and then really start commuting our top 3-4 hard for 2023.

Probably not a great comparison but I wonder if they see him filling out some and being a Melvin Ejim type player for us.  Decent outside shot, athletic, good motor and not afraid to attack the basket.  With his frame I don’t think he will be 180 for long when he hits a college S&C program.

Mentally I have him somewhere between Khyri Thomas and Elijah Wood, which is a pretty big range. 

Hope we got a guy who is up and coming as opposed to someone who had a really good weekend when we saw him.


 I’d said this elsewhere but the coaches usually take at least one project player each cycle. These are guys they can work with at the end of the bench that aren’t going to need minutes right away. If they hit that’s great, if not they move on and we take a chance on the next guy. 
 

 Previously Fred always liked having sit out guys because you can only play 8-10 on a regular rotation. Now that players can play right away you need guys at the end of the bench that aren’t going to necessarily need or have earned the minutes yet. I think that’s what you will see going forward with those 3-5 spots are guys that can do one thing really well or guys that have the tools but need some fine tuning.

To me, not being privy to what the coaching staff thinks they will have for next year, it seems early to take what might be a project player. I also don't know if they think he's a project or under-scouted.

I agree, taking him this early leads me to believe he is not a reach in their eyes. He looks an awful lot like some of his wings at ISU to me

Just seemed like we could do better but have to trust Matt & Fred on this one.

What do you mean? This kid looks pretty athletic. Will be some nice depth for the next few years. How many times have we been able to say that before?
