    For some reason his game reminds me of alpha diallo of Providence.

    I know he wasn’t heralded, but appears to be a great athlete, can shoot, and is willing to finish with both hands. His coach has also talked about for his toughness, which will hopefully translate to a versatile defender.

    Anybody have his high school stats year over year? I’m curious about his shooting percentages and whether his coming from a smaller school and/or improving a ton late explain his low ranking bc I think he is going to greatly outperform his ranking.

    What I like is his quickness off the floor as much as his leaping ability. Getting off the floor quickly is just as important as altitude. This is one of the reasons why McD and KB are such good rebounders.

    MH numbers would about 20pts. and 14 rebounds. He also averaged about 5 assists per game. His game less fluid than Diallo but he is perhaps stronger. He is a workout fanatic. He also seems to be a very team oriented player. Should be a great addition for BU.

    Thanks.

    I’m wondering specifically about his three point attempts, 3 pt percentage, free throw attempts, and free throw percentage and also how his general stat line has changed/not changed year over year.

    Thanks. This suggests that he has a good base to work with to become a good 3 pt shooter in college. If indeed he could consistently knock down 3s then this coupled with his athleticism will make him at the least a solid contributor to almost any team. This may or may not happen as a frosh but certainly should in years 2-4.

    Thanks Lamar. It appeared he took less 3s as the season progressed.

    Lamar, wherever your son goes to school, I think I speak for most on this board, when I say we wish him well, and thank you for your thoughtful participation with us. I, for one, hope he’s a Dawg and that you stay involved with us going forward.
    Good luck.

    I hear that junior Romeo Weems POY in Michigan is absolutely phenomenal.

    Interestingly Weems was only 2nd team according to the AP., although Hoops Bank list him as the best player from all classes in 2019.
