    Granted very small sample to judge by, but love the fact he takes and is able to make those shots that are 5 to 15ft from the hoop. Drive all the way to the rim wasn’t there so he’d pull up and bank it in, love those smarts.

    I was noticing how big his feet are, i’ve heard thats how they can determine if a kid that age is gonna grow anymore. It could be by the time he suits up he’ll be around 6’8″.
    Go Hoooooooosiers!!!!

    Did you somehow see his big feet from the highlight videos?

  • stuart j fultz

    Good question Priller, and a good opportunity to educate you. Yeah, how can you not tell his feet are bigger in comparision to his body than the other players. Kind of sticks out when you’re looking for it on every player, and I do because I try to get a better idea of what our new players will be built like in a few years. If you look at Anderson and Thompson and then look at Hunter you can see his feet are bigger in comparision. It doesn’t always mean they’ll grow a few more inches though. A player we recently had that was like was Emmit Holt, who had a great year with Providence by the way, his feet are huge but he still is listed at 6’7″. So it doesn’t always mean they’re gonna grow more, it just means the possibility is a little higher. Other things to keep your eye on is how broad are the players shoulders are, how long are the players arms, the longer the arms are and broader the shoulders the more length a player has. Also the broader the shoulders a player has is a way to project how much muscle mass that may be able to put on in the upper body, narrow shoulders can indicate that the body type will not be conducive to muscle building. So next time you’re watching these highlight videos pay attention to the size of the feet, length of the arms, how broad the shoulders are, they could be a good indicator of the size of player we’ll have in the next few years. Also a good tip is to watch other things besides the basketball when you’re watching the sport, there’s a lot going on out there besides dunks and three point shots. Go Hoooooooosiers!!!!!

    I’ll be sure to get my binoculars out next time I watch a low-quality highlight video to look for his shoe size and eye color. I hear if you have blue eyes you’re more likely to have a great pull-up jumpshot

  • Greg Anderson

    Wow all I can say is he looks more like a top 15 or top 30 guy. I say before final rankings are finished he will be there.

  • stuart j fultz

    Lol, you don’t need binoculars. Just need to watch basketball for a long time, doesn’t matter the quality of light, just matters if you know what you’re looking for. Whoever you heard about the connection with blue eyes and a great jumper was full of crap, lol, good one though man, that got me tickled. I do appreciate your sarcasm. Go Hoooooosiers!!!!

    Young man seems to have a variety of moves to score. He has a smooth stroke from distance and can shoot a mid range shot or get to the rim. However when he gets to IU he will find the opponents to be much stronger, better defenders, and with faster foot speed. He must develop his strength as much as anything to be successful. As far as foot size or his height being 6’7′ or 6’8″ well I doubt that matters one iota. He will need to score and play defense. Getting a few rebounds will be great but other taller and better built players should do most of that work. Wishing all Hoosier players good luck and hoping they can avoid the serious knee injuries that have plagued IU over the years. Good luck during the transition to big time college basketball, do your weight room work, hit the books, training table and stay out of the bars until you are legally allowed in. GO IU!!!
