    @gametime, did you spit your drink on your computer screen when you heard this news?

    He is super athletic but didn't get much PT for Moeller last year. You can see the potential & raw athleticism when you watch him warm up, though.

    You're about 5 "long"s short. 3 points a game last year. Three.

    This is a surprise. The kind of pick that can make you look really smart or really dumb.

    Tough to question Cal at this point but this one throws me off a bit.

    How is it even possible that he's never started a frosh, JV or varsity game?

    Wait. This thread has changed. I thought it was Cal as in the school, not the coach.

    I think when you're someone like Coach Cal, Coach K, and Bill Self, you have the luxury of taking a few major projects. Really no downside.

    I agree. One bust doesn't offset all the lottery picks. The next question is, why? Is the class thin at that position? Are they a little behind their usual standard for this recruiting class?
