"There's a certain level of confidence and composure he brings to the court," said sophomore forward Aubrey Dawkins, who played the bulk of his minutes as a freshman while LeVert sat on the end of the bench in a sweat suit. "When you know you have a player like that on your team of that caliber, it's just like, we're in his hands and he can do a lot of things for this team. It's a comfort. It's nice."
"I just really wanted to see him in a game and I loved what I saw," Beilein said. "He was active. He's got a motor. He's got some things he's got to work on. He doesn't have the strength to (play) the way he'd like to in the Big Ten yet, but that's what we're going to work on in-between (games) without inhibiting his ability to play the next game."
"Mesko has an incredibly strong leg. He kicked three straight 62-yard field goals in practice and his hang-time on punts was 5.2 seconds. Not bad seeing that professional punters average 4.7 hang-time on their punts."
I guess I understand why everyone is getting excited over this guy now. I wonder if we'll see Mesko doing kickoffs like Nienberg did with that huge leg.
