    Apparently Mac sees something in the younger Boozer that others didn't see, as I believe he was not highly sought after.

    Doesn't look likes his shot is silky smooth with perfect form, but I guess if it goes in, it goes in. He does hit a Kantrail Horton length 3-pointer in this video.

    He looks like he has potential.

    My take on this ...

    My take on this is that young Boozer is probably a late bloomer and that Alex Thompson is showing enough playing ability that Mac doesn't think he needs to take a juco bigman next year.

    Also maybe the two Johnson's are showing enough talent that they can play some power forward for us.

    Re: New Signee

    With the timing of this and after missing on Stinett and McFarland, staff wanted to get 2007 recruiting out of the way and focus on 2008 studs like Negedu and Berggren.

    Boozer looks like a decent role player/depth-type guy. Nothing to get excited about and nothing to worry about.

    On a related note, I wish everyone would stop mentioning that his brother is Carlos Boozer. It has nothing to do with how good Charles is and if fact it makes it sound like he got offered because he's Carlos' brother.

    Re: New Signee

    reminds me of when it was rumored Michael Jordon's son was coming to ISU. It is pretty cool to have someone who has famous relatives, but they still have to be able to play and play with the team. I don't see Gmac wasting a ship on a guy just because his brother is good.
