I was going to write about how ridiculous it was that teams were already contacting this kid given the face he's in 8th grade. I was going to write about the difference between he and Damon Bailey and the fact that if Bobby Knight saw enough in this kid to think he had the skill set as an 8th grader to make him an offer, he would definitely be ready by time he came to IN.
As Dante's highlight reel-Do they really have these at this level?-or is just games to date in Pop Warner(?), started playing he simply took the snap and started running over people in his way. Afterall he is 6'3" and weighs 205 so you'd expect as much. Then I saw him start throwing the ball, and I think I might have seen in this kid what Bobby saw in Damon. He not only throws darts, but shows some real juice while throwing on the move and has pretty damn good touch on deep balls. I'm certain, given his D1 physical stature now, he'll start picking up more and more interest as the years go by, so we'll here a lot from this kid.
You might think, as I did initially, that there is no way to tell how good this kid really is because he's a head taller and a whole lot stronger than all those poor kids attempting to bring him down. But then, as soon as he starts throwing the ball, it's ez to see why people who get paid a lot of money are taking an interest in this kid so very early in the process. Class of '17? WOW. Should be fun to keep our eyes and ears open on this one.
