    Re: MBB Recruiting - Potential 2009 Big Man

    He sounds like a good guy, works hard and takes academics seriously. He knows his weaknesses and is working to fix them. I like that. Considering he has only been playing for 2 years, I think he is coming along if hes getting notice. If he could develop well under McDermott I say go get him. A 7 footer with that much weight could be a good fit in the B12.

    Re: MBB Recruiting - Potential 2009 Big Man

    If he has good hands and can bully people around down low, then he would be a very good recruit to get. When you are 7'0" you don't need to jump THAT high to be in good position for a rebound. I can see how better quickness would help. Sounds like a good solid player that would benefit us enormously. He also sounds like a kid who would stay out of trouble and do well in school. Where do we sign?

    Re: MBB Recruiting - Potential 2009 Big Man

    This guy seems similiar to Kelvin Cato and Victor Alexander. For you younger guys, neither Cato or Alexander had played much more than a couple yesrs of high school BB. Both of these guys hooked up in the NBA for a time. Probably wishful thinking on my part but I thinks he's worth a good look...

    Agnew was more like 380. He took 2 schollies.

    Don't know if there is an interest but it seems Mac and the guys do a pretty good job finding folks. Just to make sure, I did forward the article to Mac and Otzelberger. They probably already know a lot more about him than we do!

    Re: MBB Recruiting - Potential 2009 Big Man

    Successful big guys that weigh over 250-275 in high school are very rare. It's hard to package athleticism and size with knees that can to take the abuse of carrying that much weight up and down the court. I would prefer HS kids under 240, and let them grow into a weight that their bones can support.
