Fair comp like the Max Strus one…..and Duncan Robinson is another. But Reaves went the opposite direction transfer wise that Podz went ending his career at OklahomaThe Lakers' Austin Reaves is another comp: an example of someone who's been successful with that frame and game, a midmajor start, and an undrafted profile.
That's the Fletch difference.
My hubris has me believing that had I watched him play basketball for 400 hours rather than 1 hour, I would maybe have seen something that led me to think "this guy can help us next year." Then again, I remember thinking Netflix was a stupid idea at first.Hot take, Podz is a really good player and obviously in hindsight would have helped this year but anyone who said they could have predicted this is lying.
This is a message to a certain someone to pull the trigger on committing
Last offseason he gave off similar energy and we didn’t know if he’d be back. Hard to read where he’s at based on this soundbyte.
You’re joking, right? The recruiting pitch is that we buried him on the bench and he went to Santa Clara and immediately became an NBA draft pick (assuming he gets drafted).What is the argument against us?
He didn't get better here? I'd say it's pretty obvious he did.
There is going to be competition for playing time at Illinois? Anyone who doesn't want that challenge should go play elsewhere.
I don't see any similarity here.The same people saying Podz was so great said the same thing about Curbelo.
It’s admissions. Transfers are different than prep recruits. I can’t remember the exact thing but Michigan has some weird thing when it comes to transfers
