Well I hope he can help. I’m worried that he will be so far behind that he might not be any better than Mitch. But if he is a quick learner, and the upperclassmen utilize that gym in the dorm to run through the playbook with him whenever they can, there is definitely some upside.
I agree that he could be no better than Lightfoot. But he will help enormously simply because he is another body that is actually a basketball player. KU needs at least a three man rotation inside to let KU’s bigs play aggressively for 40 minutes in a 4-1 set, go with two bigs for short stretches as MUs require, and help us bridge through inevitable injuries and flu.
