That's very true, but I just don't see someone with his kind of athleticism not making a big impact even when we get into the Big 10 season. I had my doubts about him making an immediate impact initially but it looks like he's really been working on his shot.
He just fits so perfectly in this system, we like to press and get out on the fast break which is exactly the type of system he fits in.
He is going to be one of the best defenders in the Big 10 on the press, he's just simply a phenomenal defender when he puts his mind to it. He played center in high school, so he will dump in a good amount of blocks, too, help defense wise.
Not to mention I have a feeling he is going to be a staple on Sportscenter Top 10s for a few years. Plus he's not good enough of a prospect to leave so he's going to be scary in a few years and a few pounds.
Like I said though, I've seen him go on 1-for-20 3 point shooting droughts, luckily he's a good free throw shooter so he should be able to penetrate pretty successfully.
