dude is the Sultan of Swat

This is the best game highlight I've seen of him so far. He shows a tenacity in this game that I haven't noticed in prior games. He might've showed it in spurts before, but it seemed like he mostly relied on being a superior athlete. It really looks like he went all out in this one. Westover is 13-4 ranked top 100 in the state, so they are no slouch by any means. Way to go Imajae!!!

A write up on Ben Beeker. Who took an unofficial visit to UNCW for the Elon Game.

He sounds like exactly the type of player that could fill an O'connel type role immediately at the least, but probably more.

I honestly think that might be a stretch as to an immediate impact. His ceiling is higher than O'Connell's but it's hard to tell how any freshman will translate. All the film I've seen on him is he's 4/5 inches taller than everyone and he just dominates. I'm interested to see how he plays against someone his own size. As of now it looks like he doesn't have any D1 offers, with interest from Yale, Harvard, Navy, Wofford, CofC, UNCW, Furman, and UNCG.

Just reading the write up on him we’d be lucky if he were ready to give O’Connell minutes. I agree that seems like a stretch. Don’t ever over estimate what a big can bring to the table at this level in their first year. 90% of the time they aren’t ready to contribute significantly as freshmen. Rendleman, Vlad, and Coombs are some I can think of in the last two decades that contributed as freshmen. Cacok barely touched the floor and that was with Gettys as our first option.

IMO (useless at is is), a lot of the reason many freshmen bigs don't translate as well as freshmen is the size learning curve they're not accustomed to. Guards and forwards are far more likely to have played against talent at their similar level and size much more often then bigs. It seems more often than not that bigs such as Beeker dominate with their size and don't regularly matchup with someone equal to their size that will really test their skills beyond just being a massive body on the floor. All of that changes once these kids hit college and every team and even at practice you're competing at a high level against guys your size. If they're not used to that than it's obviously going to take more time to develop.

Just my "thanks Capt Obvious" opinions here.

that's a fair point, thew simple physicality of D1 where all of a sudden everyone is same size, or bigger!

RE: Recruit Updates
Beeker would be a project. His ability to block shots and stretch the floor make him an ideal 5, but he has a long way to go. He's got some quality mid-major programs that have recently become interested (UNCW included), so his stock is definitely on the rise.
