For that matter, he just turned 17 in late-March. I read he skipped a grade (must be a smart kid). A near certainty he'd be the youngest player in NU history.Finally someone who can really bang underneath the hoop. Only 17 yo and already 6'9", 240 lbs.
I hope he's more of a Giorgi Beshanshvili than a Jorge Brian Diaz!I realize it wasn't an "either or" situation but I am much more excited about this kid than I would have been with the 7-footer who went to Marquette. It might take him a bit to get acclimated to B1G basketball but this seems like a great get.
We're now at a point where one can see us being competitive next year if Roby returns or we land another big body. Pretty impressive roster makeover in such a short time.
Right. I think he will be good in a couple years. Heiman would own this kid defensively tho, plays too much below the rim. He’s only going to be 17 so he will look much different year 1- year 2- etcSo does Heiman and he has been playing D1 for quite a while.
