Wow he was a 4*, with SEC offers and elected to go to Memphis.

Well, I'm glad he's at AU now! And I think he will be a big help in replacing Bryce Brown and he will already have a year on campus so we don't have to plug in a freshman there. Anyone know what kind of game he has? Shooter? Slasher? How'd his defense? 7 ppg for a freshman isn't too shabby.

I see the other schools he was considering were not great programs. But if Bruce thinks he fills a spot for us, I'm on board. I did not think Desean Murray would be anything for us when it was announced he was transferring to AU, sooo if he's good for Bruce he's good with me.

looks like he has the potential to be a pretty solid player for us. Chances are we'll need to replace some experienced players after this next season. It'll be good to have some guys who can step in who have played serious minutes.

Bruce ain't gonna waste a scholly on kid that has to sit a year unless he thinks the kid can really contribute. So far he's been money with the transfers. Kareem Canty was a baller, Murray was great, and everything we hear about Doughty is that he'll be a star. This kid played a lot as a freshman on a decent Tubby Smith coached memphis squad. Looks like a really good athlete and his stats suggest that he can fill it up when given the chance. Was looking forward to seeing him play during the toomer's scrimmage but guess we'll have to wait.
