    The 2nd video was much more impressive. At least it appears he can put the ball on the floor and dribble. Something Lucca was incapable of doing.

    We really need a shooter. This guy seems like he'd be a good fit.

    Just keep in mind he's not playing against B12 talent in these videos. The speed of the game would be much faster, so I'm sure Bo Barnes would/will look slower against them. Obviously he has a pretty good shot, but how good is he defensively? Looks pretty similar to Staiger to me.

    Re: Bo Barnes recruit

    He is a combination of Bo Jackson and Harrison Barnes?

    Where are you guys seeing this athleticism? He may have it but neither of those videos showed anything but a good jump shooter (which we need). I don't see that kid and think "athletic version of Lucca"

    I don't think he's very athletic, I just think he looks like a more complete player than Lucca. In video #2 he put the ball on the floor, drove, and pulled up for about a 16 foot jumper. After seeing Lucca stand around outside the 3 point line for 1.5 years, that was refreshing to see.

    I certainly don't think this guy is athletic enough to start in the Big 12. I do think he could be a valuable player off the bench, just like Lucca should have been.
