    Am I crazy or does he look like a lefty Matthew Moyer?

    Is it safe to assume that, if he comes, we are out of the Porter sweepstakes?

    Yes. One or the other. This may be a situation where you don't chase ghosts - we feel better about our chances right now with Rafus than Porter.

    I agree, I like this kid a lot, but. My big question does he like SU and how much. Boy what a hard decision. :bang:

    Looks like a very solid player. Is it me, or does his release look pretty funky? I can never tell if I'm imagining it with lefties (seriously, they always look unorthodox to me).

    But looks like the perfect type of long athlete we love.

    I agree with you and this kid has good range shooting also. He was knocking down those 3s..

    If they can't land Porter then this kid is a good looking option. And to keep the B-more pipeline never hurts...

    But make no mistakes about it he is not on the same level as Porter... At least yet

    After watching that video again, he reminds me a little of a younger Sam Perkins with that stroke.

    Hmmm. Good call. I think this kid might be a bit more athletic.

    To be honest, I'm not in love with these highlights--I'm worried that he's not a banger and can't put the ball on the floor--reminds me of BJ actually, just a bit taller. But then again, what can you tell from a 1 min highlight video?

    Says hes attending orange madness.
    "Enjoyed our elite camp, loved our campus and loves our style of play" Headed to Roselle catholic.

    Love his size, his speed, his shot, his game. Says people say he reminds them of Melo.
