    A 6-2, looks like a Steve Kerr/Craig Hodges type.

    Does anyone know if he is deceptively athletic? Does he have any neck tattoos? Can he touch rim? I need these questions answered before I can make any meaningful comments about the new addition.

    Being a New Englander and being very familiar with Gould Academy I am thrilled with this signing! nothing like a kid with good court vision who can knock down the trey when needed.

    Sweet stroke!!! I thought that was Klay Thompson high school clip for a sec. If he shoots like that in college, he would play more than a few garbage minutes under Paulsen.

    And judging based on these clips, college 3 is well within his range! Why do I feel like we just got a 4-star recruit when he's just a walk-on? Something is fishy.

    Perhaps how Vertrail came off the bench and lit things up under Coach L and year one of Hewitt before he and the rest of our guys were really exposed to the Virus?

    non athletic scholly player? if this is true I am thrilled. I loved Myles Tate but it would be nice to have a walk on that could actually contribute on the basketball court

    Welcome to Mason!

    "George Papas, Gould Academy – He’s under-recruited in our eyes as there simply aren’t many 6-foot-5 shooters out there who can splash threes with regularity and boast an equally impressive basketball I.Q. He’s a good passer, with an instinctive feel for the game, and his floor game is the type that would fit perfectly within offensive structure at the next level."

    I think I saw GS say Papas is his cousin? Maybe he can fill us in on more detail?

    So does "preferred walk-on" mean that he would get a scholarship if we don't fill the other open slots?

    Yes George is family. Great Great kid. All I can say is, our coaching staff is beyond stellar. George was already on their radar and they handled him in a first class manner despite being a non schollarship player. He loved that experience. George and Otis are buds. George's father coached them when they were younger. George is a sniper. High IQ. Just needs to bulk up and work on defense. Will be great addition.
