There are glimpses. He is very alert on defense, although he still makes


mistakes, he has been more aggressive in challenging shots. He appears to be talking on D now, whereas he was very quiet before. He is definitely not a repeat of Ben Mills.

He showed against the zone that he could make quicker decisions with the ball on the high post. He was strong in moving the ball last night. I imagine he saw a lot of zone in HS and double teams down low. He struggles in the low post.

He needs an off-season in the weight room and playing more against the solid competition with his teammates. He didn't get much of that in HS. He'll have another big in Joe Hurlburt to work with come summer.

If he can improve strength, he won't be stripped as much. Right now, they just hack right at the ball whenever he gets it. He has to go through people and might not be able to do that yet.
