I posted this on the LSU-Kentucky thread:
Hey Brit, does Odo practice with the team?
Yes he does.
I've only been to 1 practice since he's joined LSU, so I didn't have much to observe, but he looked pretty good.
He can run really fast down court, and will hustle to get down there, a great attribute for a big man. Has a lot of stamina. He has really long arms, great for pulling down rebounds. Will go inside hard. He's already gelled with the team, looks like gets along with the other players well. He's an incredibly happy looking guy - a huge smile on his face the whole time, he's having the time of his life! (My husband says this is because he doesn't live in Nigeria anymore
). I guess I mean he has a positive personality, I think fans will love him.
Looks like he needs to beef up a bit. A summer of working out will probably take care of that.
Didn't really have much time to observe specific skills (too busy watching Josh Badeaux knocking the hell out of Carmouche and Hickey,
). He looks a bit raw/rusty, however. Probably an adjustment from the Juco game. Didn't see any spectacular low post moves or outside shooting.
As I said, that was just one practice, but I liked what I saw.
