You want some highlights, this kid has some pretty great videos on his Twitter showing off his court vision. Seems to be a more pass-first PG than TK. Could one of the mods post those on here?

I noticed Arkley was following him on Twitter a few days ago. Wonder if there was a little insider info there?

Seems like a slick passer, but I loved that blocked shot on the fast break. Like TK seems to play taller than he is

I definitely didn't see that in the tweet, and i also didn't think that watching the video, but perhaps he is.

Most places list him at 6'2". But his HS assistant coach is tweeting that he's really 6'4".

If all are healthy this roster is starting to take shape. Here is our backup PG to Kirk so that Cowart, Dartis and Gollon can play off the ball. We have our posts with Doug and Carter with Springs possibly being a sleeper or a redshirt. We have our stretch 3-4s with Block, Murrell, BVP and McMurray. AND WE STILL HAVE A SCHOLLY to play with!

This feels a little Khari Harley-ish to me.

Khari was signed way late - maybe in July or August. As long as he doesn't end up with the back issues Khari had, I'm not sure where the comparison comes in?

There was a sentiment that maybe we were giving Khari a scholarship just because we had one to give, and his only offer at the time was NJIT. Khari actually took the scholarship that was vacated by Anrio Adams.

I think Khari could have developed into a pretty good player if it weren't for his back problems. He was a starting guard before being passed over by Dartis.

I agree about Khari being solid after a while. His back just kept him from ever showing growth. This kid is a completely different player. He's a 6-2 to 6-4 point guard with vision. And remember, Kirk was going to go to Drake, not necessarily a Top 25 team or even Top 25 Mid Major team. Now he's a possible First Team MAC guy.

I totally agree. I was always rooting for him (and Wadley) to get to 100% so we could see those flashes he showed on a regular basis.

I liked the shot block on the fast break and some of the passes were slick.

Don't take this the wrong way, but I live in the state where "Believe Academy" apparently is and have never heard of it. Is it a new thing? Is that why some of those games look like they were played at a YMCA or local rec center?

Filled another need. Nice pick up.

Welcome aboard Mr. Preston ! Can't wait to see you on the court next Fall.


Can somebody hit a pull up jumper for me?.....
