That one clip shows him against Purdue, and he put the ball on the floor and beat their 7’3” center with a post move. So at least that’s quality opposition.Man I'm not a huge fan of the grad transfer but this kid is a basketball player! Has a all around game and a very skilled big man. And hes pretty big! Great passer as well. SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY PLEASE TAKE A LOOK!
Everything you say is right, ... but Grand Canyon has Thunder Dan Marjerle. He's likely familiar with Daddy Rik, as they played against one another in the NBA for 12 years.There is really something wrong with this picture on this kid. I apologize if this is discussed on prior pages but...Why would a player that is his teams leading scorer leave that team for his senior year for a team in a vastly inferior conference. The WAC is not the WAC we all remember. Other than NM State its horrible competition; Utah Valley U., UT-Rio Grande Valley, Bakersfield, Cal Baptist, Seattle, UMKC and Chicago St. That is trash compared to the Missouri Valley with N Iowa, S Ill, Ill St, Indiana St and Loyola (FF last year). Doesn't sound like a kid up to the challenge of the ACC. I like his tape but I'll pass. He must have a girlfriend there or something.
All private schools are for profit. Others just mask it, pretending to be NFP. Meantime, endowments continue to grow while students pay exorbitant tuition and fees to be indoctrinated and granted degrees which will prepare them to be baristas.
We have someone better?I dunno...this kid just doesn't move the needle for me. He plays way below the rim, which at 7'+ is not a great thing, and he is most certainly not physical. I think the ACC would eat him alive. He is not like his father at all, Bball-wise.
I have no idea what Edwards can or can't do. Valpo plays at a decent level. He was a double digit scorer there. I would take my chances with that.Maybe, maybe not, but that is setting the bar pretty low. I think the Edwards kid would be a much better pick up. A healthy Sidibe would be a possibility.
