He is leaning towards Tech and would be eligible to play immediately as he is graduating from Ole Miss. We saw him at the game at Barclays Center. Pretty agile big man.
Is he as capable as Carter, no. I think you might be selling him a bit short at big body & 5 fouls.
He's got a lot of potential to contribute on the glass, block some shots, collect the garbage for putbacks.
Apologies for misconstruing what you wrote. Also, I agree with that strategy of having that big man depth.I did not, or at least did not intend, to sell him short. I am from the Joe Hall school of basketball, if you do not have 20 quality fouls at 4 & 5, you are probably in trouble.
I am thrilled if he is, in fact, on board.
