Per the man, myth the legend. Also guessing 22 had something to do with getting him evaluated on 247.

He reminds me of Luka Garza from Iowa who was runner up for Naismith trophy. Good around the rim. Same height, a little lighter, but still has time to put on weight. I have a good feeling about this guy. Super excited for the future of Aggie bball!

Remember when we couldn't recruit a big man to save our life for about 3 years? I like being on this side of recruiting.

How do the bigs in the system now compare to the ones of recent years?

Barnaba
Niang
Shaw
Mattheus
Jorssen
Stone
and the like?

I liked Stone more than Shaw. Shaw hit the back iron too much.

I like his style. And its nice to see he may have been playing against other kids close to his same height. Hopefully he learns a lot from Nemi next year.

Seems to have a good feel for the pick and roll. Not many HS age big men have that.

for a guy that has only been playing for ball for 3 years he looks really good. We don't get too many 4 star recruits.

This is the most excited I have been about a big man signing in the last 11 years since Modou Niang.

Let me clarify that I say this in the way that the sports information director might say it. This is also the most excited I have been about a big man signing since last week.

But I remember being pretty excited about Niang back in 2009.

I am pretty sure that Niang didn’t have a star rating- and sure that no one had him as a 4*.

I thought we've had a few over the years MacEwen, Jalen Moore, and Jordan Stone come to mind. Not to mention McChesney. :headscratch:

A quick look at 247 shows McEwen as a high 3 star, Moore as a 2 star, and Stone had no stars.

McEwen was 4 star on ESPN but i believe that was the only platform that rated him that highly.

I would be very disappointed in the rating system if Stone were a 4 star recruit.

4-star? No. Koby, Jalen and Jordan were not. Jalen and Jordan were not even close. Koby was close and may have been an ESPN 4-star. I guess when I refer to 4-star, I'm always referring to 247sports, for obvious reasons.
