Can't tell much from his video on Youtube. Smooth midrange spin moves and shooting. One dunk and one three pointer. No video of defense or rebounding. Hope he has a great hoops career at Penn!

There is actually a lot of video online. Of course highlights tend to show the shots that go in. He is a Betley type wing ( not saying he’ll be as good as Ryan). He’s long and can shoot. He’ll need to add some muscle and develop a left hand.

Looks like Rivals has him as a 3 star prospect for whatever that’s worth with some solid offers like San Diego and Saint Louis (with a mix of lower mid majors beyond that).

Based on the online videos (and yes, there's a lot) he looks like a good fit for Donahue's system on the offensive end. The videos I've seen so far don't show what he's capable of on the defensive end but it's typically hard to gauge that from highlight reels. It's better to gauge from full game videos.

I'm not sure where he'd fit on defense end. It's not clear that he's quick enough to guard the better wings in our league and he may be slightly undersized for the front court. (Yes, I know that our defensive does a lot of switching but at the end of the day you need to be able to guard someone in a on-on-one matchup). The positive spin on this is that he seems to be a tweener, which is the type of player that tends to be overlooked.

Like Mike, I'm encouraged by competing offers. I've also built up a trust in Donahue's recruiting - he and his staff have been very disciplined in bringing in good fits.

I don’t have any real insight into capabilities beyond what we’ve seen in videos (good size and nice shot), but did find some very encouraging AAU stats.

In the 2019 Adidas Gauntlet he scored 11.4 points per game over 16 games shooting 71 of 121 overall for 59% and 27 of 54 from 3 for 50% from 3.

Bonus that his team won the whole event championship. Played with other quality guys but looks from the stats like he was a consistent contributor/scorer/shoote r.
