The video on VC was from his freshman year. I'm sure he's improved by then because it was fairly underwhelming. He reclassifed to 2019 at some point. He was originally a 2018

Based off his tapes he's a kid that would rather score near the rim than put up jumpers

Thanks for the videos. His game kind of reminds me of DAPs quite a bit. A hint of a jumper, but loves driving and drawing contact, and could use some improvement on his handles.

You're late. You missed my post from Monday, the 25th, that is literally three posts below this one.

Could this be a sit-out transfer? Allen-Eikens transferring.

With the addition of his former HC, I expect Muller to make a call. Based off his tapes I'm not completely sold, but he seems to be a high effort and energy guy, which helps build culture. It'd make a ton of sense for him to transfer here.

Looking over his stuff again, I would be surprised if he didn't get at least a visit. He has ties to Jones and Belcher recruited him while at INST. He had some pretty good offers (Buffalo and Murray State) but elected to stay home. I'm sure there is more to him as a player than what is in his mix tapes.

DeSean was on campus at UND, at the very least, this spring but was dealing with a leg injury. He could be immediately eligible, but could be a likely RS candidate while healing.

Staying at UND. I am surprised the process was so fast but not shocked with the decision. I figured he'd take some time, and take some visits but ultimately the kid seemed to want to stay in his home state. He was in the transfer portal for less than 4 days.

Probably a good decision by him, especially if he's hoping to play right away. Plus, he did try the prep school route (Aspire Academy in VA) and I'm not sure he stayed there the entire year. May just not feel real comfortable too far away from home.

I wish him the best.

I was looking into some of the other MVC games coming up and noticed UND has a game vs Valpo. Reminded me of this kid, so I checked in on him. He had a pretty good debut against Crown College.

8-12 from the floor, 3-4 from three, 3-3 from the line, 8 boards, 6 assists, 7 TO, a block a steal and 22 total points in 28 minutes.

I didn’t even know you could call that many timeouts...because, surely, TO means timeouts. Not 7 of the other TO’s [emoji51][emoji51]
