According to National Recruiting Analyst Andrew Slater, McCormack’s hard work on his body has made him a much more explosive player on the court.
David McCormack has always had a great deal of relative low-post skill, but the transformation of his physique since arriving at Oak Hill Academy has helped him remain on the court much longer and create additional explosion," said Slater. The 6’10" Virginia native is one of the most efficient low-post players in the class, but has also looked to steadily improve his face-up shot from the high-post," he added.
According to Slater, McCormack’s already polished offensive game and his ability to block shots and hit glass will immediately stand out to Kansas fans.
Offensively, he’s relatively polished for his age. Like the earlier Jayhawk commitment Silvio De Sousa, McCormack now rebounds at an exceptional level on both ends of the court," said Slater. “With the improved athleticism, the five-star senior has developed into a more effective post defender, particularly as a weak-side shot-blocker. He still needs to trim his physique more, work on his lateral quickness, become a better overall defender, and cut down on his turnovers. Overall, landing Dave McCormack will be both an immediate rotational player with his rebounding and low-post skill as well as one who brings the ability to develop into an all-Big 12 honors type of big man as an upperclassman,” added Slater.
