    Kevin McHale Interview on ESPN - Credits Freddy for Royce Pick

    Did anyone else catch the Kevin McHale interview between picks 21 and 22 where they discussed Houston's 1st round?

    Basically, the ESPN crew asked him about RW and Kevin began by describing his skill set and how excited he is to utilize a pass-first big man. Then the ESPN crew asked about off the court issues and Kevin said something like, "I've known Freddy for a long time - I coached him for a while - and Freddy said nothing but positive things about Royce and the things he does on and off the court." (Paraphrasing since I don't have DVR in my hotel room)

    That is recruiting GOLD!


    Respect thy butter cow!

    I believe that could be the best thing to happen to Istate basketball. Let the young kids know that "Freddy" has some serious connections in the NBA.

    It was definitely some nice extra pub, especially making note of Fred's NBA connection. It may have minimal direct impact on recruiting, but it probably won't hurt.

    Re: Kevin McHale Interview on ESPN - Credits Freddy for Royce Pick

    I think it might be here. Kevin talked last night from the draft after his selection of Royce about how unique he was as a player and a player like him doesn't come around that often.

    Starts at about 6:15 talking about Royce
