    Normally don’t like to make a comparison to UK players but this kid reminds me of a younger, yet stronger Tayshaun Prince. Smooth and athletic.

    I like the way this kid plays, seems very smooth and always in control not to mention he looks like a very good passer. Would like some stats on him though instead of basing my ideas of him off of a highlight film.

    Lets go get him!

    Strong on the right side but weak on the left.

    Looks like a skilled small forward. I understand he will be taking a visit to MSU and Izzo this week.

    Love the passion the kid shows, emotional, like VO……those kind of players seem to keep players motivated to play, love the energy……Not a bad jumper either

    Wow, what a player. First I thought he was a 6’4″ guard but he’s listed at 6’8″. His ball handling and shooting are impressive for someone that young and tall. I don’t know if it was just the highlight film or not but to borrow a phrase from Gregg Popovich, Paul plays with “nasty” or an attitude that shows he’s really competitive. If things aren’t going to work out with Jaquan and we’ve already established our recruiting in both Indiana and the DC metro area, Chicago (Paul is from Chicago) would be a perfect addition giving us 3 major talent pools to participate in over time. I really like what we have developed with the DC market which now allows a guy like Stanford to move away from home but have familiar faces he knows and trust still present in his day-to-day life. We of course have that already with the Indiana guys, but adding Chicago to this pipeline of sorts would be highly valuable from a long-term strategic advantage. To me Paul is great based on the film but his also being from Chicago is super intriguing if it opens up the opportunity to draw more Chicago talent to Bloomington and keep them away from Illinois, Purdue, and Wisconsin.

    Good floor vision..works well to the rim… has a killer cross over and step back jumper. What’s not to like. Strength will come with age…looks like a kid Crean should really pay attention too.

    I just threw up in my mouth a bit. Next time, could you please leave out the fact that whoever had played for UK? Maybe mention that he reminds you of Tayshaun Prince of the Detroit Pistons?

  • IUfanPurduePhD

    That’s a normal reaction. It’s called pUKing.

  • IrishHoosier

    Before reading your comment Tayshaun Prince was actually the first player that came to my mind, too. It wasn’t so much the talent, though, but the whiny and attitudinal faces that he makes after several of the plays in this reel. He may be good, but I don’t think I could watch that for any length of time.
