    Railey

    Wondering if you guys think he will be a player here someday. He definitely has the frame but he seems to be a bit stiff and unathletic. Hard worker though. Your thoughts?

    Re: Railey

    Jordan Railey now > Justin Hamilton as a freshman. With some coaching, he could make a good basketball player. Get him some aggression and he could be a great college basketball player. You can't teach height.

    Re: Railey

    I am on the Railey bandwagon. Seems to have a good attitude and motor.

    Re: Railey

    Really like what I saw out of Railey tonight. Had some great hustle plays that got him a few offensive boards. If he can develop a few post moves and block more shots, he will be great.

    Re: Railey

    He will be a solid player but never a go to guy. He needs to work on his post game though. His shots seem To be really flat. He is money from that baseline though.

    Re: Railey

    I think that he WILL be. He hasn't had an offseason in the weightroom yet. That will do wonders for him. IMO sometimes coaches fall in love with the small lineup...like FH saying that Babb could play some 4 next year. I'd rather see something a little more traditional with Booker and White inside with Godfrey and Railey backing them up. Ejim and Babb should play most of their time at the 3. Then Scotty, Allen, Bubu, Sledge and McGee playing the two guard spots. I just think that small lineup allows for too many offensive rebounds and put-backs...unless whoever is playing the 4 is a real jumping jack that is built well enough to stop teams from picking on him.

    Re: Railey

    Railey might not ever be the number one offensive option, but I love the thought of him and Godfrey playing defense, blocking shots, and grabbing the occasional offensive rebound with the guards we'll have playing over the next few years. Love the hustle we're seeing lately out of these guys; I'm confident the coaching staff can help them develop into great role players.

    Re: Railey

    Railey has already transformed his body since the summer. He was much softer. He's got a big frame, and a bit of an attitude. Put 25 lbs of muscle on, add a few post moves, and learn defensive positioning and he could be a bruiser.

    Re: Railey

    Potential to be a stud if he can keep his emotions in check. He plays extremely hard and tough for a freshman, but sometimes lets the intensity get the best of him.

    On top of that he already has a solid mid range jump shot.

    Him, Godfrey and Ejim all have so much potential. The next 4 years (god willing) we could see something special out of them.

    Re: Railey

    JR could be a decent player, but he needs someone to teach how to be a post player, not someone who shoots 12 foot jumpers (although that is a decent skill). Needs to get rid of the "baby fat" and get in shape though. Eat the right things, kind of like certain... well nevermind.

    Re: Railey

    J-bone is only 19 years old...babb and allen refer to him as a child. He's just young in age and body maturity. FH said earlier in the year that he's actually still growing, measuring in at 6'11 1/2" at the beginning of the season. So who knows...he could be 7' by the beginning of next year. Give him another year or 2 to develop physically and develop as a player, and I feel like he will be a matchup problem for a lot of teams.

    Re: Railey

    I like him ok, but he needs to stop jackin up so many shots. He isnt one of our top scoring options. He was taking too many long jump shots early into the shot clock. He does have a nice 12ft baseline J.

    I think we'll see Fred play a more traditional lineup next year, with 2 true bigs in at all times, with the exception of certain situations where Melvin or even Babb plays one of the big roles. But I think this will indeed be a rare exception. For the most part, between Royce, Anthony, Jordan, and Calvin, 2 of them will be in the game at most times.

    25 lbs of muscle while doing a catabolic activity like playing basketball everyday seems like quite a stretch. I think 10 lbs this off season is more realistic, which is still a LOT of muscle.

    I think this is a pretty good comparison. Railey is averaging 2.2 pts and 1.8 rebs in 9.8 mins, while Hamilton averaged 4.2 pts and 2.9 rebs in 13.7 mins. So looking at those stats its hard to say that Railey is better right now. However, I would argue that Railey has a bigger upside than Hamilton. Railey is still very raw, and seems to have an edge to him. I would hope that would translate in the weight room and pratice court. I think at a minimum he can be a solid role player throughout his career, and at a maximum he can be a Jared Homan type player by his senior year. I loved to see him diving all over the court yesterday.
