I heard his defense wasn't good enough at Duke which means he never really learned how to flop.
I watched some tape of his from HS. He's got a slow release and somewhat awkward mechanics. Not your textbook shooter by any stretch. Its funny that Duke fans were bemoaning the loss of one of their only 4 athletic players - I don't see athleticism here at all. I see a somewhat mechanical player. Certainly a 4 year guy - maybe some Kjo in his game from a half court skill set. Will need some time to develop...I don't see an impact on the court until at least his JR year.
Jake, what are you calling an impact? Is he at least a viable sub after he sits for a season, or is that having too high of an expectation?
I think the guy he reminds me of is Moten- from a stylistic standpoint. I don't see the athleticism to finish at the rim...he'll have to use guile. Not sure he's got the release needed to shoot at high elite level however. We'll see - he's certainly not a "can't miss" player. But these kinds of kids usually find a way to be effective.
Its funny - because he might be able to have more success in the ACC than Big East. Style of play is much different.
