It struck me the similarities between these 4 players. Appalachian St …Towson St…Silo Tech…no Div 1 offers. A breakout year has us looking, and when the offer is made, the kid is so flattered and humbled he has to say yes. KU is his dream location, and he fully understands that he is not guaranteed a second of playing time…he has to earn it. We will help him to fulfill his dreams, but he has to work harder than he ever has to achieve it. I remember when we first signed Frank, it was like BFD…who is Frank Mason? I remember when we signed Devonte, and I was ecstatic to the point that many of you told me to calm down- that he wasn’t that great.
I really think the core strength of this team next year and beyond will be found with Agbajis and the Brauns. Will they both become all B12, and also POY, and All-American? Agbaji came on like a hurricane his senior year …there is ALOT to love about this kid’s game. Once he has a year or so into the program, I could see him start to make an impact. You need a shooter off the bench? The kid can flat shoot. And Braun is just now scratching the surface …what’s not to love about a fundamentally sound player with very good ball skills, that can shoot the lights out, and hasn’t even turned 18 yet? Our bench is going to be loaded with shooters next year. Once these two get into their upper class years, we’re talking some serious star potential. I don’t know if they ever achieve what Frank/ Devonte have, but it’s going to be a delight watching them try.
