“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”
He might get undersold due his physique, Herting noted - "he's a big, gangly young kid with a size 18 shoe and a 7-2 wing span" - but he can get off the floor and he runs the floor well.
Seems like he is not done growing.
"I've watched college basketball growing up, and I know Michigan vs. Ohio is a big rivalry, stuff like that."
When you only play one big, and that big is only 6'9, you're asking to get dominated down low
Well, this helps ease the sting a little bit. Pretty intriguing skill-set.
We need a person who can REBOUND this small lineup got is killed yesterday...if we could have somehow limited their offensive rebounds we win by 10 but nope nobody can grab a damn rebound....
Michigan needs more players like Doyle - a big yet mobile kid who can rebound. At 6-9 and 230 it looks like he could easily put on 20 pounds of muscle. Once again, the coaches have done a great job identifying good players early before they start to get the attention like Doyle now is.
The problem is we don't know if he can actually rebound until he gets to the Big10 season. We all thought McGary and Horford and Morgan would be great on the glass this season but it seems like every team has killed us on the offensive glass. We're really not that small of a team anymore. Those three are huge and GRIII and THJ can jump outta the gym but we just can't seem to rip them down. Dennis Rodman was one of the best rebounders ever and he was only 6'7" or 6'8". It's about mentality more than size and our guys don't have it down yet.
Hard to rebound when your bigs are hedging at the top of the key on every defensive series and aren't under the basket. I think it's the system being run just as much as the players.
His tape is very good. Doyle's body type reminds me of Kevin McHale. I'm glad he's coming to AA.
Is the only man who can stand up straight and scratch his toes.
Not one broken backboard in all of those highlights. The offer should have been non-committable.
Glad to have you... just please... no more croquet mallets.
Congrats to Ricky Doyle. This is awesome.
Doyle will be excellent in coach B's system.
My only concern is the stress fracture, coupled with Doyle be a large human being. Since Beilein has been here, we've seen Cronin's career end before it got started, and the development of Horford, Bielfeldt, and McGary retarded by foot, knee, leg issues. Makes me wonder if year round Bball is a bad idea for young Big Men.
'under the radar' recruits don't phase me at all. The man can spot potential talent.
Mr. Doyle! Glad to have you aboard!
We have a ton of graduates/leave early threats, so we need a big class. Trey was under the radar too, at first.
Love the reverse dunk with about 15 seco re left. I for he gets a little more coordination he looks solid
Seconds left... Damn iPhone, can't see what I'm typing below the keyboard.
so I'm betting this guys gonna be good. Last few times we've gotten in on guys early who seem really good but no one's heard of them we ended up with guys like Smotrcyz and GRIII who both rocketed up the rankings after committing
Welcome, Ricky Doyle. I do like seeing dunks from under the basket.
He has some great post moves, and not just the typical "I'm bigger than you" moves you normally see in HS. (And don't tend to translate to College well) He's got a nice post spin, hook, up and under, etc and he can go either left or right while in the post. He'll only get better (and hopefully slightly bigger?), but a 7'2" wingspan already is very good. A great pickup.
we need big strong players to win the clutch and grab styel baseketball being played by MSU and Wisconsins of the world.
second the already better than morgan comment.
