    Re: Malik Dime---Indian Hills

    This kid would be a great defensive presence around the basket. Great timing on his blocks and seems fairly physical down low.

    I also think people are thinking too much when talking about his offense and how he would fit. Yes he might not be what we have typically had recently, but i think he would be just fine.

    Check out the video above and go to the 1:55 mark. Makes the defensive rebound..makes a great outlet pass..runs the floor very well..and gets a put back dunk.

    As far as the spacing argument..this guy finishes everything above the rim. The way we space the floor and drive with our guards, he would be a great finisher down low.

    Plus...I love the way he dunks the ball haha

This would be a big catch if he signs. Must have been some grade issues, etc for him to have escaped out of North Carolina.

    Yeah....I think he would fit in perfectly here

    Interested by the buzz for Dime at 6'9". Not to take anything away from Malik, but you guys realize that IHCC freshman Akolda Manyang is 7', right?

    I have this strange feeling that Fred would find a use for him...

    Let's see. Shot blacks and rebounds that abruptly end the opposing team's offensive flow. Yep, I'm pretty sure that Fred could find a use for that...

    I wonder if he was a qualifier out of high school. Perhaps could enroll as a soph?

    Well, it is a highlight tape.

    All three of IHCC 2015 posts can do some things. I hope they get up to Ames often for some scrimmages (evaluations)

    Looks like a lefty.

    I love left handed players (especially big men).

    I agree. Fred's recent video statement re: having a shot blocker in McKay for the first time indicates that Fred sees value in a player with this ability. It will be interesting to see if they pursue Dime.

    What about Roderick Bobbitt? Is he going to get an offer if Vaughn goes elsewhere? I would love to have this guy.

    I would guess so. He seems like a good replacement for RV should he choose elsewhere. He could fit in at two different positions, and if he didn't start, he and Naz would be a great change of pace off the bench for MM/MT as they could score in bunches.

    Sounds like what we thought we were getting with Dustin Hogue, if so, yes please.
