    Great opportunity for the young man to grow his game against good competition

    Playing and practicing for real games with real coaching this summer has got to be a plus.

    I'm sure he trades out the Buddy Holly glasses for rec specs when he plays basketball.

    It's going to be a great experience for George, but just keeping things in perspective, I don't think there are many P5 centers down in baseball country that he competed with.

    If he develops his body and his game, his length could see him to the senior team before he leaves ISU.

    He needs it; otherwise he'd have to stoop down.

    You are correct, but he has the opportunity to play against great competition that he may not see until he gets much playing time here

    George seems to have a great personality and he seems like he would be a very coach-able player. Plus he is long, athletic and runs the court hard. He likely isn't going to be ready early, but if he works hard and his body matures he could be a real stud down the road. I looking forward to seeing what kind of player he develops into.
