    Melvin Ejim tidbit

    I've heard through multiple avenues that Melvin Ejim has showed up on campus in great shape and is really turning some heads. I also heard that about his performance in the Capital City League last Wednesday. Nothing earth shattering here but thought I'd pass this along.

    If you were a freshman looking to potentially be THE star for all four years this would be a pretty good situation to step into. Nice to see that he's stepping up to that challenge.

    THAT'S AWESOME NEWS!!!! hopefully he comes in stronger... we need some strength in our guards take some bumps and can streak to the hoop, hopefully in the future we start to recruit thicker guys.

    Re: Melvin Ejim tidbit

    Certainly don't want to get the hype train rolling, but I came away pretty impressed after watching Ejim the other night.

    He did look in very good shape and the people who complain about our recruits being too skinny in the past (DG, Taggart, AO), certainly won't have any complaints with Ejim's physique.

    Can't wait to actually see him in live-game action.

    I hope that we can continue to get players out of brewster because all of them have turned out pretty well

    Pretty sure Brack is the only one. There were a few in his class that we recruited also (Stinnett and some other dude).

    Melvin Ejim is another REALLY well-spoken kid. He literally sounds just like Craig Brackins and seems to be just as intellectual. Great kid.

    Re: Melvin Ejim tidbit

    While I am excited about this kid let's not annoit him as the next star here yet. All we need to do is look at last season with Colvin so see how sometimes we can get too worked up over potential and put high expectations on someone before they even play a game.

    I think Colvin would of thrived in an up-tempo system

    Re: Melvin Ejim tidbit

    Colvin had an attitude problem which seriously caused his ceiling to be limited. Melvin, by all accounts, looks like a GREAT kid.

    Re: Melvin Ejim tidbit

    I thought Colvin did pretty darn well for his first season in a slow down system even after being promised an up-tempo style of play. Can't wait to see Ejim.
