Imagine this is the exact type of scenario the staff envisioned when they elected to keep an open ride for this season.
Correct. To compete in the mid-season transfer market, a team needs a ride available so they can practice and train with the team without paying their own way or waiting until season's end to join a team.I believe if he transferred now, he would take up a scholarship this season, but would be eligible to play next season. Could be wrong tho
Have to think the physical transformation of Kofi would be a big plus in this guys mind — especially if he needs to remake his body to help stay on the court.Imagine this is the exact type of scenario the staff envisioned when they elected to keep an open ride for this season.
My cursory Google search findings:
- RSCI #70/247 Composite #91 in Class of 2020
- 6-9/270 with 7-6 wingspan
- Skilled, with nimble feet, good handles, and an inside/outside game
- Scouting reports highlight the need to work on his body and conditioning (hello, Fletch)
- Redshirted last season due to injury and had off-season foot surgery (see need to work on body and reduce stress on feet)
- A Baylor site suggests he may be the most talented player they had on this season's roster
"Has a wide, space controlling-frame at 6-9. Conditioning has been an issue in the past. Has nimble feet and a highly skilled game. Good athlete but not overly explosive. Proficient back-to-the-basket scorer who can also face up and shoot or drive from outside. Very comfortable with the basketball and has a feel for passing. Strong rebounder. Defending on perimeter can be a challenge. Good positional interior defender who can also block shots. Should develop into an NBA draft pick". --- Jerry Meyer, Director of Basketball Scouting
