    Antwon Oliver-Scouting report, other interesting info

    Ok guys, I talked to Oliver's AAU coach three days ago, and I've talked to Oliver, and several others that are knowledgeable on the Wisconisn scene. Here's what I got:
    Oliver is a "Freakish", "World Class", and "unbelievable" athlete. He is a tremendous leaper and dunker, and I was told he shoots around 45% from three. He has a quick release, good form, and is accurate from deep. He can slash pretty well.
    The negatives:
    There were a few grade issues, but they seemed to be cleared up. The biggest problem is that he is very skinny, IMO, he may redshirt, than take over Gilstrap at the three.
    Also, this does in no way mean that we aren't going to try for Ejim and Barnes.

    Good to hear. If he does have those qualities, and can add 30 lbs, I'd say we'll be just fine.

    Why did no one else offer to him? Grades only? It seems that grades do not discourage coaches much any more.

    Oregon was going to offer Other schools didn't because he didn't look at all like he was going to qualify, but he really stepped it up in the classroom.

    Warriors is the Adidas team in Wisconsin, Elite is the Nike, I think they split a few years back from each other, but I'm not sure.
