    Call him BIG MEL!

    I know alot of people are excited about him. This kid, hands down will be the most athletic and high flying player we have ever had by the time he leaves.
    Look at his beastly moves.
    Cant wait to see him develop as well.

    Wow. I really hope there is a game I can make it to when I'm back in Iowa this December.

    I don't get that analogy at all. Because he's athletic? They're really quite dissimilar when you get down to the nuts and bolts.

    Re: Call him BIG MEL!

    I like the sound of that!!

    The last player at Iowa State with the nickname Mel was pretty good.

    Anyone remember who that was???

    I've not seen Mel in person (yet), and this is the first video clip of him I've watched.

    That said, based on this video alone, I can understand the RC compare.

    Care to elaborate on the dissimilarities?

    He doesn't know, most likely trying to stir something up. I mean really dissimilar i am sure in some ways but this guy plays like him. And just like RC he was a fan favorite. Seems to be with ejim as well.

    I don't think that he'll even be the most "high-flying" member of the team next year. Elgin Cook is a freak athlete.

    Re: Call him BIG MEL!

    The player he reminds me of is Jeff Grayer. Sort of under the radar, but smart and solid in all aspects. I agree, I think he will be a great player.

    They are actually quite different other than the great athletic ability.

    Thats what really strikes me in the video. He is very smooth with his motion. It doesn't look like he is even trying while doing some rather athletic moves.

    Re: Call him BIG MEL!

    my first thought in thinking about our new small forward was to compare him to tinsley. that seems fair.

    wait a second, jeff grayer, our all time leading scorer, that's a better comp.
