Can someone please explain to me how he is the #42 recruit in the country? I just dont see it from any of his videos. Granted, this isn't a highlight video, but in many cases it looks like a low light video.

Not the best video I have seen of him, but I know he was one of our priority recruits for a reason. He has the skills, but might be a year or two away. He is not Timme or Watson ready yet, but has as much upside as either of them and that is why I think he ranks that high.

He reminds me of a less athletic version of Kispert.

LOL. Yeah, that video looks so-so at best. I guess this is when fans just have to trust the GU staff.

Remember, every team needs deep bench depth

i wouldn't worry about it too much. while the scouting video is "new", the game they took it from was a U16 game from '16. it's not exactly up-to-date, and most (if not all) of our recruiting and evaluation process has happened since then.

Just a bit of a "technicality" eh?

a bit. lots of this stuff makes more sense when we seek out and understand the context, THEN react :)

Thats is exactly what I was looking for. Kid played with Pangos right? Has to have something to do with it.

mid range floaters are a rare enough thing in college ball that I do pay attention when someone has one in their arsenal.

Yeah, it's almost weird to see a guy who shoots mid-range shots. Rui is great at it.

The guy is like the forgotten recruit. Does anyone know where he's even playing this season?
