2014 class is loaded, imo there are much better players available. Would love if possibly he would be open to a preferred walk-on, with a 4.0 and all the extra-curriculars believe he could get an academic ride being instate.

The kid is good but he will not get a major offer. He struggled against St Aug from the outside bc of the length and that's what he will face at a big D1 program. He had to shoot less than 20 percent from the outside that night and scored majority of his points on fouls going to the basket. I belive he shot 22 free throws that night.

That 35 can be misleading. Remember against Aug that was what double OT? Plus its not hard to struggle and score 35 when 80 to 90 percent of the offense is built to get you a shot. When I saw him in Lake Charles...he's clearly good but definitely a product of the system he plays in. He's 70 percent Intangibles and high basketball IQ and 30 percent talent. Kid will be successful just because of his drive.

I think he's easily a better college player than Andre Stringer or Shane Hammink

I am not trying to be a smart ass, but I looked at a couple of different sports for the Louisiana Composite Academic All-State teams. St. Thomas More has something like 6-7 kids with 4.0's. Most schools have maybe 1-2 kids. How can so many kids have a 4.0? Those are just 2 sports. They must have 30-40 kids at St Thomas More with 4.0's.

Harry Carey- I'm just a friend of his brother. Didn't see a thread about him so I started one.

5alive- I went to two of his games. One being the st aug quarterfinal. The last 3 possessions of that game in OT he went 1 on 1 with Craig Victor and converted each time including the game winner with 2 seconds left. They aren't the only team with length that he handled either.

1 on 1 vs a forward and he is a guard he is supposed to win that every time, especially bc he had to guard him out on the wing. At the next level they are not gonna tailor an offense around him and he will have to create with bigs in the lane. And him playing pg will be an adjustment as well. Cant see him as a 2
