    Looks like he just was more athletic than anyone defending him in the video, which is usually tough to translate to the college level. Didn’t have terrible handles but didn’t look like he’s going to be beating a ton of A10 defenders off the dribble immediately. Don’t know if I saw a single pass in any of the videos so not much to go on there. Would be interested in what drew the staff to him, in the last by George podcast Dave talked about looking at stats that they thought translated well to find under the radar kids.

    Same. I'm sure more footage will show up as people dig.

    From Adam Ayalew: "One of the most underrated parts of Gadsden’s overall game is probably his shooting."

    I always take recruiting videos with a grain of salt. Any athletic high school kid can dunk if he has an open lane going against smaller, slower players, and it's certainly not tough for any HS kid to put a short video together of him hitting wide open 3s.

    As has been stated here by others, it will be interesting to see how his game translates against A10 competition. What I do like is that you can't teach athleticism, height or moxie, and he appears to flash all three in that brief video.

    Looks like his dad played at Sacred Heart in the early 90s and is one of their leading scorers - 1680 points

    Automatically at least two chances to see him play in Fairfax next year: at Flint Hill (Oakton) and at Poromac School (McLean).

    I doubt any of you cretins live in such high end neighborhoods but if you can afford a motor car you can go watch.

    I liked how he mentioned he likes talking on the court and he gets energy defensively.

    Certainly can’t hurt

    No worries the GiantKiller Team will be covering this kid if there is an upcoming HS season and they let people in games. Flint Hill is also down the street from my house.

    Eh both the message board black sheep and a respected member both argued that vs the message board homer nobber. I don’t think that’s true at all though

    Hopefully we can get a center on the recruitment pipeline and land two of these guards paulsen offered. Would love to beat out someone a bit better than mt st Mary’s

    If he becomes a star, I could see some fans wearing a Gadsden shirt. Don't tread on me!
