    Well Paulsen said we need height and athleticism so he grabs an explosive 6'7 PG! I like it.

    This is great, was just watching a video on him and he gives mason length at the guard position that can really help the team in the a10. Can’t wait to see what he can do.

    He’s also a magical height. Lol

    Not sure how the talent is where he plays in Canada but I like his size. Hopefully he’s a diamond in the rough. Wonder if Paulsen and staff are done or still doing some spring shopping.

    Just my opinion but I have a feeling he works really hard, and the staff recognized it and knew he’d be a fit. Nobody else spotted him but they moved very very quick on him from an offer in February to committing a month later. Hopefully he’s ready to contribute right away.

    “Who’s you’re daddy?” Would be a fun name to call the Mason GW game.

    Gives us a nice shot of athleticism. Seems like Daddy is always on the attack and a highlight waiting to happen.

    Yes. The coaching staff obviously really wanted him. This is a signing that I think will really benefit us for the next 4 years. We’re not a freshman post player away from anything, and we have one coming in Oduro that may develop. Besides, we don’t know if anyone may transfer. Watch Haidara’s highlights. We’ve got to celebrate this one.

    Hopefully one of the thread police interview Daddy and find out what other offers he had. I think I saw Maine offered him this past a Fall.

    I like his highlight tape. Seems like a very solid athlete with the ability to throw down some hammer dunks.

    He certainly has the ability to fill up a stat sheet. In December he was averaging 23 PPG, 8 RPG, 4 APG

    I wonder if what sealed the deal was the team mom said he could be the Daddy of the team.

    Judging only off of video footage (what else do we have, right?), this kid seems too good to be true. He seems to have extreme body control, excellent form and elevation on his 3 pointer, very athletic but in a controlled way, not in an AJ kind of way.

    His moves are crisp and decisive. Very developed game. Physically he looks A10 ready right now.
    You never how any of it will transfer into college ball, but wow, I really like what I amn seeing. He's no Jared Reuter, but I'll take him!
