I went to the Glaxo tournament to watch the signees and recruits. Here are some of my observations…
Looks like an Evtimov clone. He has a great basketball body and decent athletic ability. He has vey good shooting form and is an excellent passer. He will contribute immediately.
He is a great athelete with a big strong build. He is a good passer and rebounder but his shooting form leaves a bit to be desired. I believe it will be a few years before he contribues (ala Benneman). He has alot of upside.
This kid is the real deal. He is considered a top 50 recruit but I believe he is the type of player that we need to take State to the next level. He has the rare combination of awesome athletic ability and great shooting form. He made mistakes and forced some shots but he is very aggressive and is not afraid to lead his team.
Other players that attracted my attention
Brandon Young looks to be a good player. He can drive and score but is a little on the small side for Herb (listed at 6’1″).
Irving Walker is the point guard on Larry Davis’ team. He is lighting quick has a good shot and is the team leader. He is too short for Herb (listed at 5’8″ but looks shorter) but could add an interesting dimension to the NCSU team.
Vlad Moldoveanu is 6’11″ and plays guard. He is painfully thin but has a nice shot. He seems like a Princeton offense type of player.
