Just amazing to me how many new guys isu is going to have next year. Lots of potential.
No one is bashing him
Appreciate all the updates and Thompson's videos, as well as Jared's article. Tre Jackson is one I've felt is very underrated, based on the HS videos I've seen. He can stroke it from anywhere across halfcourt - much like he did in this game 1 - and, he has a good handle too. I expect he'll need to significantly improve on D, but he can bring some O.
Was also very pleased with what Leech, Bolton, and Zion showed. Others looked to have their moments too - again, just going from the highlights. Should be a fun year. JJ will provide some nice scout-team competition in practice as well.
Wasn't his hard nosed defense one of the things Prohm loved about him?
Prohm is a defensive coach so this would make sense.
Just watching those videos, Jackson, Leech, and Griffin really stood out. Condit's shot looks good too.
Conditt wasn't too accurate on threes. So even though his shot looks good, take it with a grain of salt.
Read between the lines what people in the know say about him. It's not bashing it's tempering expectations while people hope the light will all of a sudden turn on. I really hope it does but I'm not holding my breath
Tempering expectations? There doesn't appear to be many for him.
So they've been sufficiently tempered
I can't say for sure - don't recall that. My D comment was solely from what I'd seen in the videos posted on Youtube. Certainly can't say they're conclusive, but his D didn't look great. His O sure did. (Doesn't mean he can't get there, by all means.)
From what I saw of the videos his HS team played a ton of zone. So it is tough to tell.

Another video by QuadVisual.
Tre Jackson & George Conditt VS Zion Griffin, Solomon Young & Kourtlin Jackson (YMCA CapCity League)
Key Prospects #3 Tre Jackson 47 PTS #4 George Conditt IV 18 PTS
#0 Zion Griffin 49 PTS #10 Okay Djamgouz 16 PTS
#33 Solomon Young 12 PTS #8 Kourtlin Jackson 15 PTS
So some poor bastard had to film all of this for QuadVisual? What a nightmare.
Met the kid on the way out of the gym... Said he will do all of the games. I was looking for the dunk at the 24:35 mark of the game Leech and he had it. Kid had a business card too. Must do it for a side gig or something.
Beats working in a grain mill for $4/hr! Granted, that was 1988. Filming sweaty basketball players would have been a cakewalk.
Some have them for him. I just don't think it's right to go after a guy like Arctic who posts a lot of great info just because it's negative about a player, especially because it's not like it's some big secret
It’s always so weird to see people jump on negative information before the season and then turn around in season and just **** on everything and anything and anyone regarding ISU basketball.
