He's a 6'8 195lb power forward who was a 6th man for Lawrence North, one of the top basketball programs in Indiana. Doesn't turn 16 until September. Quick leaper, good fundamentals in the post. Being watched by a number of high major programs but only has the IUPUI offer so far.

Thank you and thetorch.

Are you concluding the same about Brandon McKissic, Javon Pickett, Jordan Poole, Zach Gunn, Charles Payton, Ra Kpedi and all the other talented 2017 kids the SLU coaches are recruiting but haven't offered yet?

3star_reruit, who is Ra Kpedi and what position does he play? How tall is he? I ask because this is the first time I've seen his name.

I think the talent is actually better in the league now than 25+ years ago. First, the U.S. talent pool is much larger. The country has 100 million plus more people. Second, there is a global talent pool now to draw from.

Add in better training, diet, film study, personal coaches, better prepared coaching staffs, analytical scouting, etc........

The talent in the league today is light years ahead of the good old days. Teams today would blow those teams off the court.

There are a lot of players in the league now who should be juniors or seniors in college. Russell, Robertson, Magic, Bird and West did not play against players who should have still been in college. The league is very watered down. To say the league is light years ahead of the leagues of the past is foolish, imo.

This Cleveland team isn't even a top 100 team of all time. Golden State may be a great team someday but they didn't prove it by taking 6 games to dispatch this motley crew.

So true.
