"The most impressive thing I saw him do this week was there was that play where he was like rim running. And he fucking like OBJ style catches it one handed. Oh yeah. Yes. That was the way above the room down the far end of the court. Yeah. Way above the rim, somehow dunks it all in one fell swoop, and it's just like, this guy is fucking 7 foot tall. There is no way he should be able to do this. Like there is no way that someone should be so coordinated that he should be able to go up, get that ball with one hand, his inside hand, by the way, which isn't even a harder catch than it is if he was going up with his left, catching it and dunking it all in one. I was just like, I can't fathom, I can't fathom someone who is like 6 foot 9, making that catch. Let alone someone who's 7 foot one and like gangly and still growing into his body. And coordination is insane and get a comfortable with the college game and actually getting his feet wet. And it's his play just more about getting acclimated to college and everything clicking or some people pointed to is it the competition level in the WCC where it's not they're not conference schedule or was dupe, Texas, UCLA, Alabama, Texas tech. I just think it's clicking. I know the post offenders and the guys closing out aren't the same caliber of talent or height or length of wingspan. The guy is in WCC play shooting 69% of the field in 60% from three. And so I also started digging. I'm a big, let me see what opposing cultures are saying. Let me see what they say, postgame, and Mark Pope from BYU, the head coach, had a quarter after the game, and it kind of made me twist my thinking a little bit. He said, he's a ball screen guy. You kind of have to pick your poison. You're either going to not switch him and give him up a 64% three point shooter, or are you going to switch, and you're going to have an undersized issue, which we had three times in the land with him. So maybe I'm even looking at it. I'm very high in chat, but maybe I'm looking at differently where I thought he'd be a liability because he's so skinny, but maybe it's a strength because the defense doesn't even know how to defend that. You're damned if you do, damn if you don't when he catches the ball or doesn't catch it because he scores so many different ways. And look, part of this is that BYU starts to very undersized guards. So like, if they're switching one of tejon Lucas or Alex barcelo onto chat homegirl, like his foot on this camera. Right. Yeah. And that's something that will happen occasionally in the NBA, but not as much, right? I just BYU's a top 40 team top 30 team in the country. They're good. They're good. They're actually good. The teams near them in the Ken palm rankings right now. North Carolina, Oklahoma, Florida, Michigan, Mississippi state, Providence, Providence is a top ten team like Providence, probably shouldn't be 42nd income bomb, but I understand based off the math why they are..

"Athletic, rebounds, plays hard, four men, freshmen from auburn. I just think he can be an energy guy that I could bring in if I have to. Okay. Two more. I'm gonna go with Kellen Grady, Kentucky. Yeah, you probably need it. Well, you got some shooters. I do. You got some shooters, but you can never. My last pick is gonna blow you away. Go ahead. All right, I can't wait to see it. I can't wait to see it. All right, I gotta take a point guard here. I need one more point. I'm going with. Julie, you know what? Yeah, I got enough shooting. Do I have enough shooting? Probably not. I do. Tie tie, Baldwin, Justin Moore, for big time shooters. I'm gonna go with Alex barcelo. He was like the best returning shot like 47% BYU. He's got to be 36 years. I mean, he might be older than you were when you graduated. So we're going with Barcelona there. BYU some love to. All right, this last pick. Yeah. This guy is probably not going to be on any top 30 40. But good player. I've seen him in person and this to me is the Zach ede kryptonite. You got so many bigger? No. I've got somebody who's more skilled. More nameless chesky, we are going to pick and pop Zack eaty until the freaking sun explodes. We will just pick and pop into death. Chef 43 7 three. We're taking away from the basket. We're gonna make it so you can not play this dude. The chefs, he's a local guy for me. So he could always shoot that, man. He's big and he can stretch it and he's got a chance to prove that. All right, so I'm going with a guy since obviously I know you and what you don't look for. And this is where you made your mistake with your team right now is and it's no surprise being the player you were, right?.
