    Nebraska fills their last scholarship for 2020-21 with the up and coming 6'10" center.

    I hope that fans expectations remain in check for this young man.  He has skills, but he appears to be a project. 

    For me, I anticipate a possible redshirt year.  Maybe I will be pleasantly shocked by where his game is at, but my expectations are going to remain low for year one until proven otherwise.

    We could put a frontline on the floor we haven’t seen (size wise) since ‘91... also imagine Andre & Yvan paired up with Shamiel, DeLano & Teddy! Please let there be a Basketball 🏀 season!

    I would substitute Mayen for Yvan.  I believe he is better skilled offensively and a match-up problem for most teams.

    That’s probably true, but I’m thinking “Twin Towers” on the block with 3 of our biggest wings/slashers on the perimeter...

    Don't you just love all the possible line-ups we can have with this 'new' team?  I can't wait for the season to begin!!

    According to his profile on ESPN, Ed is 6'10 and 228#.

     

    According to 24/7, he was the #214 recruit in the nation coming out of Compass Prep

     

    I'm watching CSU vs. SDSU* right now and their starting center, Nathan Mensah, is averaging 10 and 8 on 62% shooting.

     

    According to 24/7, Mensah was the #297 recruit in the nation coming out of Prolific Prep.

     

    And he was 6'10 205# coming out of HS.

     

    According to his ESPN profile, he's 6'10 230# now.

     

    He's the starting center on a team that beat #22 UCLA and #23 ASU.

     

     

    P.S. AMAZING comeback, by CSU. They were down by 26 and came back, on the road, to take the lead on a 4-point play with 11 seconds left. SDSU fouled out one of their best offensive weapons on the play and went down and missed their shot and had to foul. CSU just hit both FTs to take a 3 pt lead with 2.6 seconds to play and the Aztecs called timeout.

    ‘Very funny, I saw that kid and thought he reminds me of Andre. Also FYI the kid that hit that shot is John Tonje from Omaha Central. That kid is a good story, really made himself into a D1 player

    UPDATE: CSU won. Biggest comeback in Mountain West history.

     

    The reason I bring up Mensah is that he and Eduardo seem like pretty similar players. Eduardo needs some reps. Getting Covid was a huge setback for him. I'd love to see what he can do when he's fully in playing condition. He's a bit raw right now, but you can see the potential there. He has nice, soft hands. He moves pretty well. He's extremely long and he's fairly athletic.

     

    He's not perfect. He has some rawness to his game. But if he develops his footwork, learns some spin moves, and just gets a feel for the game, I think he has tremendous upside. Ten and eight are not out of the realm of possibility, even as soon as next season. And he'll return as a freshman, which is really cool for him and for us.

    If Eduardo is 228# now, as his ESPN profile says, I wouldn't be surprised to see him come in close to 240# next fall. I wish he had Yvan's rebounding determination. I would love to see those two matched up head-to-head in practice. Someone in another thread wondered if Yvan this year would be able to score on Yvan from last year. I'm really curious if Eduardo from this year can score on Yvan from this year.

    One thing I liked about the last game is Fred basically let Eduardo foul out and learn what it's like to rack them up.  We never did that with Jordy and it drove me crazy.

     

    Let bigs foul out so they learn how to stop fouling.  

     

    I don't think Eduardo is soft at all, but I don't think he's mean.  That's one thing I love about Yvan.  He's not nice about rebounding or defense.  I wish he could power up to the hoop with the same anger.

     

    Eduardo is already a much better offensive player than Yvan, and his length is going to develop more and more in the PnR with Banton (I hope).
