    He got offers based on potential. Any other year he would be redshirting but Fred doesn't have that luxury. He needs bodies.

    He is raw but he will be pretty good if he works hard.

    He has played in a few of our blow outs. Seems a few steps behind the rest of the team. I am sure you'll see more of him in the next few years.

    Re: eric mcknight

    Who said he got those offers? Him?

    Eric is struggling as most freshman would. He should be redshirting, but he isn't because we need him since we have 9 players.

    If he sticks it out, and I hope he does, I think he has a chance to be a good player. It just takes some time.

    Re: eric mcknight

    He should be redshirting but isn't because of our lack of depth. He'll play only if we absolutely need him.

    Re: eric mcknight

    He's got the natural talent and body. Just lacking the polish and skills. I'm confident that if he has it in him, Freddie and the staff will get it out of him.

    Re: eric mcknight

    Any chance he would be willing to redshirt next year? He probably isn't going to play much at all (unless we have a bunch of injuries). Would be a good year for him to develop and still have to three to play after next year.

    Well no I am not him...just a hypothetical. If I were him I would be up for it though. Looking at the guys next we will have next year playing time would be difficult at best. Hang out in the weight room and spend extra time in the gym.

    Re: eric mcknight

    I don't think all the listed offers are necessarily correct, based on reading a few different articles.

    Re: eric mcknight

    Eric's a very nice and smart kid who, in my opinion, was in need of the redshirt more than anyone in recent memory. I think that redshirt was needed more for general adjustment to the atmosphere of college/college athletics than for basketball skills, though. He doesn't have the most confidence right now and is pretty hard on himself, on and off the court. However, his upside and general athletic ability are unquestionable and a year or 2 from now we'll see his true potential.
