    I see another guard who could rack up some blocked shots.

    His slash and finish is of a 4 star recruit. Fast, controlled, and strong to the rim.

    better not say that too loud or DJ3 will request he comes to college a year early and takes over for Otis... But in all seriousness this is definitely an exciting commitment on top of Wilson and Mar in that recruiting class.

    Gotta make it through this season before we really start to see the payback from all these recruiting gems. I expect better this year but know all the pieces are not in place.....yet!

    So, as many times as he gets a finger on those crossovers, I'm willing to bet he has very long arms. Dudes who get those kind of pokes are always the guys where you think you're at a safe distance and they're just super spidery.

    My guess is he's longer than he is tall.

    I was thinking the same thing, and he appears to be pretty long. Wingspan, baby, WINGSPAN.

    But will DP let him gamble for the steal?

    Hey - if we're winning (though I don't expect many more wins this year) and last in the country in steals it'll be fine with me. It's hard for me to imagine him not being a little less conservative on that front with this group.

    I got the impression from his highlights that at least half of his steals came from good positioning + length, not from giving up positioning on a gamble.

    As we know after 8 consecutive wins, this team plays tight man defense. They don't go for steals but they fight through picks, guard the 3, and seldom seem out of position. I'll give up the steals for this kind of defense.

    Though I believe steals are up this year - don't think GMU will finish last in the nation. Seems the team has a bit more freedom to go for steals - which makes sense given the roster.

    Yep, the guards double teaming the post has led to quite a few turnovers of opponents bigs who put the ball on the floor.
