    Most look I've ever had with Polite. Really didn't even look like he was trying half the time, just setting his teammates up with passes. Then he scored 10 quick points to ice it. Finished with 20.

    His first step is unbelievable...explosion to the rim. Very good free throw shooter and pull up guy but that first step is insane. Very skinny and light but not short. Accurate passer.

    Concerns I would have would be adjusting to the non-stop nature of college ball and how his body will develop as he gains weight, goes through our strength/conditioning. If he can keep his quickness as/if he gets heavier...because he'll need to get stronger/heavier. X came in much stronger physically.

    One of the higher upside kids Paulsen has signed, IMO but less of a safe bet than some others too. Glad we have him. Really glad.

    nice to see Malik Henry was a the game at TCU with his HS team. Too bad he saw us take a rare blowout loss.

    As Richmond resident, had lunch ran into real tall dude. Asked where he played he said Andrew School, private school west end. Told him I was big Mason fan (he laughed) . Turns out he was 6' 11" five star recruit, offered already by Kentucky, Duke. His name Efton Reid. I'm sure VCU is all over him. Oh well.

    Reid isn’t going to VCU. Zero chance.

    I'll disagree with you on this one. Seems like a taller, more athletic version of JDS. Looks like he's put on a few pounds since I saw him last. As much as I'm down on DP right now, I hope he is FINALLY getting some studs into the pipeline. Time will tell.

    Any idea how tall Polite is? 6’1? His lankyness reminds of Bones Hyland from vcu.

    That's what they have him listed as, same as XJ. Would be interesting to see them standing next to each other.

    I'm going to go shoot him tomorrow during a tournament game. I'll report back how tall he is.

    Choice of words in these crazy times are important. If any law enforcement is reading this he clearly meant film him, not put a slug in him.
