    Saw him play in person last year. Great footwork and runs the floor good. Needs to put on some muscle but most high school sophmores need to gain muscle. Kid is well coached and looked very coachable for a player that young and that talented.

    Wow!! His highlight reel is impressive. Left-handed… behind the back dribble… behind the back pass… shot blocking! Love those mobile big guys.

    That pass at 1:12 was nice. Great footwork, good handles a versatile game. Come on down, big fella.

    Reminds me of a left handed Anthony Davis! Come on down!

    He’s a 7 foot Erik Daniels

    Damn, if he can hit a turnaround 15-footer consistently, he’ll be a top 5 pick after one year.

    He looks aggressive and physically strong for his age. I’m impressed he doesn’t shy away from contact at all. In fact, he creates the contact — good for him. Cal’s type of player it appears.

    I haven’t seen such unanimous support for a player on the day of his offer since the twins. Make this kid a #1 draft pick

    Made me think of Raef Lafrentz…not sure if I spelled that right. He was big, mobile lefty as well.

    I saw him play at the Beach Ball Classic in Myrtle Beach last December. I think he will develop into a nice big. He has legit size for a kid his age. His touches were limited in the two games I saw-mostly because Shabaz Mohammed’s less talented brother is on his team and is a ball hog. Rashard or something was his name.

    Holy SHITE !!!

    This kid has a drop step, a mid to long range jumper, a fade away, great ball handling, passing, shot blocking and agility. Good gracious, get this here TOMORROW !!

    BTW, Finally a highlight real not just showing dunking which involves no basketball skill at all. Just height and leaping. Lots of great dunkers who can’t play for crap.
