Twitter page shows he's taken a lot of visits over the last year (Indiana, Cincinnati(at least twice), Valpo, NKU, Toledo, Dayton). But only holds a couple D2 offers, Miami OH, Toledo, and Ball State. Quick look at the highlight tape he looks a little slow and the competition he's playing against looks no where in his league. He looks 2-4 inches taller than everyone he plays against.

Does seem to have good touch around the rim, passing ability/court vision, and I'm a sucker for someone who shows defensive highlights. Not so much the blocks, but more on the couple of steals he got by jumping the passing lanes.

He'll be an interesting one to follow.

I saw him play twice last year in Winchester's incredible old gym. He has some skills. He can handle the ball and has real good hands. He can shoot and move his feet. Reminded me of Leroy. He's every bit of 6'9" 260 and maybe still growing. According to his history teacher ;) he's a good student, nice/quiet/smart kid. Very well liked. IMHO he's going to need a redshirt year to lift and shed his man-boobs but if he were to do that?!?!
