Oh yeah! Welcome otis!
Guys.. we have ANOTHER lefty
For those who are video highlight junkies, if you can post some good ones in this thread so we can project whether he will be A10 player of the year that would be great.
Didn’t look but assuming 2 stars?
I’m busy searching for 6th or 7th graders named Otis IV.
This is a little old but I like the athleticism and range on the jumper. There's your depth at the 3.
I don’t hate this. I don’t think he’s going to have an impact this year, but I do think he has some upside in a couple of years. FWIW from what I’ve seen from his videos he looks better than Daddy, but I don’t think he’ll see a ton of minutes this year barring multiple injuries.
I stand by my Deandre Abram comparison, project guy with solid upside down the road. Welcome to Fairfax, hopefully you come in and crush it.
There's a video of him doing a Vince Carter impression, jumping straight over some poor kid.
The year he did at Mt. Zion should help with his transition to D1 ball..... obviously a year older and more physically mature.
What I see
Range- he took some threes (deep ones), and made them. Seems like he has a nice shot, good mechanics. Definitely can be used. Him and Kolek definitely will be nice shooting competition for each other.
Athleticism- at 6’6 he has a make of a guard, the height of a forward. I can see him playing the 2 or the three, or even the 4 if needed. Put him with Jordan miller and Malik Henry and you have some real good athleticism with some good size. He definitely fits in with the profile Dave has gone after the last few years.
Motor- if I’m not mistaken he had a block on a fastbreak, anyone who’s 6’6 and can run the floor definitely can be a horse.
the year of prep school should really help him adjust. I expect him to be ready for d1 when he plays.
not sure if they promised/expect him to play right away or if he’s going to be a redshirt candidate. Either way he should be a good one.
Otis is already ahead of Abram in one important area: He’s a willing and active defender. DeAndre couldn’t guard his Fing shadow.
We didn’t know who this kid was until last week and now he’s a willing and active defender and a three point shooter off of a highlight tape... you guys are nuts
welcome to Mason Otis. Please be athletic as we hope you are.
I mean I just went off the video haha
Another Otis!!! Swimmom is probably on her way to Arizona at the moment to kidnap him.
She has to bake him cookies first.
Nobody is more plugged into DMV hoops than Marcus Helton.....not even sleeperpick.
Speak for yourself. I knew about him a full 12 days ago smart guy.
Im just happy we filled out the roster. I really didn’t think we were going to this year. This is the year of no excuses, so if this is Dave’s best option with that last scholly let’s see what happens.
I’m happy to have a little more depth at that position and if Daddy is a bust then it’ll be good to have another body with 5 fouls.
I'm excited. There's some insanely athletic stuff in his highlights. St. Bonaventure was heavily recruiting him before he decided to go to prep school. And it feels good to beat UMass out for a kid. Even if he ends up redshirting, having another body in practice is better than leaving the scholarship open.
