Seems only natural that a coach's son would become a PG. I had no idea he was so highly rated; he seemed to be one of those under-the-radar types that have filled most of CCM's recruiting classes to date. Of course, his relatively late growth may have something to do with that. He seems to have the length to carry another 20 pounds or so with no loss of speed and quickness. I like that he sees his main job as taking care of and distributing the ball, but I want him to shoot it with confidence when necessary, especially at the FT line. Glad he has Barton to learn from for this year. Really looking forward to seeing how much he can contribute as a true freshman.
