So this kid’s best case basically Swanigan from Purdue? If so, that’s a project worth embarking on
It reminds me of this great post from @StinkyMcFadden.
I think it's the players' fault as much as anything else.
We have a bunch of corny guys on the roster.
When you're the toast of the town in high school, you picture college being like a combination of a rap video and an And-One game.
You don't picture yourself playing your college ball with Uthoff, White, Gesell, Woodbury, Oglesby and Meyer. One of our black guys talks like the queen and the other in clicks and pops.
Clemmons has a heavy burden on most recruiting visits, I'd guess.
I think the whole dynamic could work with a guy like Uhl and it almost did with Ulis, who appears to be a tremendous nerd in his own right.
I think that video was taken during recess.https://www.thehoophustle.com/news_article/show/1052244
Can't link the video, but he looks better- even if it's just an open gym.
He might consider avoiding carbs.
Lotta tiki torch carrying posters coming out of the woodwork in this thread.
Given that Ogundele is raw, it will be good for him to battle with Garza for a year and learn a lot of his core fundamentals.Why I don't think 2020 will be a replay of 2015:
1) everyone has a clear position. moss was the only 2015 who could fit in a clear spot -- the 2. hutton had no clear position. williams might have been a decent 3 or 4, but he was out of his skillset at the 1. wagner was a warrior and scoring threat -- on the football field. on the basketball court, he had a soft 4 game in a 3 body. fleming? eh. fuck fleming.
2) ulis is a solid pg. perkins is a sg, but we'll see about the skillset -- at the very least, he's not going to be out of position or a fran "let's make him dev 2.0 project." ogundele is a legit center.
at least for those three, no one is going to fail because they don't have a clear fit. what sunk the '15 class was that too many were project tweeners, none of whom worked out.
But would you even consider Iowa knowing that there are so many Joes on the team???
