    Charles Boozer Video

    Found this video of Boozer in action... no clue if it's been posted or not but I haven't seen it yet.

    A few things that jumped out at me, 60% FG and 90% FT shooter in high school. That's good. His shot does look a bit awkward to me, but I definitely don't coach basketball for a living. Also he's somewhere around 6-3 or 4. Apparently McDermott likes his guards fairly tall.

    Good find. Charles has good strength and size at 190 for a young guy.

    Re: Charles Boozer Video

    Wow, that is a pretty nice highlight video. Hes got a good game, he can shoot from outside despite his ugly shot, and he is a slasher in the lane. People are talking about him redshirting, but he can do alot of things that could contribute to this team.

    Re: Charles Boozer Video

    I think his shot is a little unconventional from what I saw. Looks like he threw up a lot of "junk" and off-balanced shots that went in. Against better competition not sure that is going to fly. I like his strength and willing to take some contact though. Might not be a bad prospect but some of the tendancies I saw will have to be corrected. Anyone notice his FT%? Said 90%, that's one thing I hope that stays true in college.

    Re: Charles Boozer Video

    That is an unusual shot.The coaches can fix that. I like his size though. Height and width. Looks like he will not get muscled around like our current guards do. Also like his bloodlines. I would have to watch more games to see how quick he is. It's hard to tell in those type of games because that is certainly not Big 12 pace.

    Re: Charles Boozer Video

    Thank goodess they showed the slow-mo replay of this foul shots.... ESPN doesn't do that nearly enough.

    ugly shot, good raw skill, McD will add polish.

    Re: Charles Boozer Video

    You have to remember those highlights were a few years old. I think they were just before he was a senior, so his game might be a little improved. I've seen some sights listing him at 6'2'. It is hard to tell but he looks a little bigger than that. He is quick, hustles, and isn't afraid of contact when he drives, which we need. It just worries me a little because he wasn't recruited and yet his brother is a star. Then again Wesly Johnson wasn't recruited hard either. I hope he is a good fit.

    Re: Charles Boozer Video

    But it's not like he has to be good. Sure we want him to be, but we have guard help coming in 08 with Eikmeier and Buckley.

    Does anyone know his stats from Stoneridge this year?

    Re: Charles Boozer Video

    His shot may be unconventional, but his free-throw shooting percentage indicates that it works. Perhaps he should teach some of our current players, who aren't very good at the free-throw line, to shoot like he does.

    I remember Kenny Pratt had a shot that never looked good, but no one could stop it either.

    Re: Charles Boozer Video

    I doubt that his stats are 100% accurate. If you notice right before it cuts to the video of him, there is some small print that said all of the stats were provided by the player or his representation.

    Re: Charles Boozer Video

    i actually dont see him red shirting, i think he will come in and help right away


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Charles Boozer Video

    I'd say his shot looks fine...Not overly explosive....Good feel for the game...Greath Strength

    He'll be interesting
