Yep this was key. Hopefully he turns out better then Lasker, but great value get. I know at the time the staff thought if Lasker made it to his Soph. year that we wouldn't have a chance. They thought he was going to be a big time recruit, and he very may well have been. 6'6 310lbs with mobility. But back to this kid. Having him make the grade this late worked out great for us. Perfect fit into our defensive system as well. Definitely worth the shot.
