Check out the link below at 0:39, 1:20, 3:12. 3 Big dunks. Has more bounce than I thought.
He's super athletic.
Nice. Kid is gonna be a good one. I still think THT is the crown jewel of the '18 class just because of his versatility but Griffin might be a key contributor next year as well. Big 12 ready body.
The next Hogue.
Definitely a guy that I'm excited about. Unfortunately he doesn't get nearly as much attention as THT gets overall, but he looks ready to help right away.
With a better outside jumper.
I don't know. Hogue had a pretty decent stroke by the end of his ISU career. I'm pretty sure he shot over 40% from three his senior year. Admittedly, he didn't shoot a ton of them. But he was a credible threat if an opponent left him open out there.
So much athleticism will be in our program for the next 2-4 years. It's gonna be a lot of fun.
Yeah, the potential is certainly there for them to be hell on wheels in transition. How would you like to be the back defender in a 3 on 2 with LW, Griffin, and Lard coming at you?
Love this kid. need to start calling more lob plays when he gets on campus.
Simple answer, I wouldn't.
Did you watch Hogue play? He shot 43% his senior year. The guy was a nightmare.
Yeah, thanks for looking up the exact percentage. I don't think anyone was going to confuse him with Steph Curry but as I recall he had a decent stroke as a spot up shooter. My memory of that season is foggy but IIRC he was very competent from the corners.
I'm more interested whether he can make free throws
@VeloClone I am optimistic about the next couple years. It's been a long time since ISU basketball has had a group of explosive athletes like the ones coming up.
He had great shot-selection.
Career True Shooting % and effective FG% above 62%. 39% on 3P. Only a 27% 3P attempt rate, but dunks are good shots too.
I’m sure most are optimistic Zion will eventually have more volume, but Hogue could have had he not played with guys like Kane, Ejim, Georges, Nader, BDJ etc (see UConn game).
agreed. when you see a 6'6" kid dunking on people and bombing in threes, I always think about free throw shooting.
Yea, I was referring to Zion's mechanics. There was a reason Self offered him and it wasn't just because he has great athleticism. I hope he can knock down open threes on par with what Dustin did his senior year.
That seems to be the trend for NBA talent evaluators now, too. When they look at players it's the free throw percentage and stroke that's the truest indication of how good a shooter they can be.
I share your optimism. There was no sarcasm in my rating of your post.
