Reminds me of the Enberg call of the Kentucky game of the Kentucky player who put back in a basketball late in the game of 2004 or whenever it was.

He's got a chance to be the most physical big man we've had at UaB since Will Campbell.

After seeing our signings this offseason, i assumed our coaching staff had high hopes for him. We will see what he can do at the next level.

Looking at his highlights, he has a nice drop step move on both sides of the low post, although he appears to not be able to jump very high. It's a whole new ball game transitioning from high school to major college. In college the bigs play above the rim, so to speak.
