    Go watch some of his high school tape and you should see the difference in athletic ability. Granted I am not sure how tough the competition was, but he was pretty smooth. He made quick decisions and even extended his range out to 10-15 feet.

    A lack of confidence in his knees may have contributed to those mental mistakes, too.

    He is huge for high school And has d1 athleticism. Of course he looked smooth.

    If I gather all his highlights from Mason he would look just as good.

    Today begins the first spring evaluation period. Unlike past years, expect for many to remain home. Transfer market becoming primary focus

    No word of him committing to Kent St so I assume he is on his visit right now.

    I'm sure he got the "we are no longer recruiting you" line after the Calixte commit news

    I think we'd still need him just to have more options considering every big we have has a question mark next to them. 3 freshmen and 2 soph who didn't log many minutes.

    I sure hope Paulsen is still going after Frederick hard. the 5 spot was our biggest weakness last year when Jenkins got in foul trouble.

    Yes we signed Calixte, but as we saw from last season we need at least 2 bigs who are ready to play, and depending on who we play, Mason probably wants to have a couple line up options.

    I wonder if any of the bigs would redshirt if we signed Frederick.

    He could have checked his grade online.

    Pittsburgh just released Aaron Thompson from his LOI and Corey Manigualt is transferring. Both are PVI guys. Wonder if DP will be/ has been in contact.

    Good god! From what I see on his twitter, I hope it's not Mason. This guy looks like nothing but ego and trouble. He may be more ready to contribute on the court than any big we've got, but he wouldn't be worth the headache. Definitely not a guy that I foresee buying in to "burning his boat".
