    Teammate of Hamidou Diallo. I think he was originally a class of 2017 kid. So maybe a chance of reclassifying to the class of 2017?

    I like that he seems like a guy who could play and succeed at either the 1 or the 2. Shows a lot of different skills in those videos (and I'm only through 3). He doesn't look overly athletic but he seems to be very well coordinated and smooth. I love those pass fakes into a 3pter!

    as orangefog mentioned it would be really interesting to see if he could reclassify.

    Yeah, as you said, doesn't seem super athletic, but does seem to have great body control. Seems like a nice target for us; hopefully it amounts to something.

    This is a good offer, Eric can play. Not super athletic but he is very strong. If I were the staff I would also take a look at Darius Garland. Kid has game and can really shoot the ball. Darius's father Winston played in the NBA. Kid comes from a basketball family.

    I love it...everyone was all bent out of shape about QG...the sky is falling scenario, but here is a solid player that could make that fiasco a distant memory. Reclassify to 2017 and you'll get an offer from us. How long did that take...3 days! Plus we signed Sidibe. Our coaches are professional recruiters and we'll be fine.

    Love this kid's game. Also anything that brings us somewhat closer to getting Duval, I'm down for!! Reminds me of Devo lol seems like he plays with a swagger. Has an edge to his game.

    Reminds me a lot of Isaiah Briscoe, especially how he uses his off arm to ward off the defender and has a crafty finish. Not as good or as athletic though clearly.

    I guess JB got the most out of his visit to New Haven and the National Prep Showcase last Saturday. He saw his son play and then Diallo and Ayala.

    Like this post if you thought this kid was a Defensive End when you read the title.
