Looking like UB filled the Center position in a big way, an ex-Oral Roberts 10PPG who transferred to Clemson. 

Looks like he'll be spending his final year starting at center for UB.

I'm definitely excited about the possibility, but this far from a lock.

Huge if we can grab him. Listed just outside the top 50 in the espn rankings that are posted in the other thread. Thanks for the info Kevin

Just based off the trend of transfer players, they tend to commit pretty quick to whatever school they either visit or show interest in, we could very well land him. Who knows.

Would be a great get. Proven production though at a slightly lower level. More back to the basket and pick and roll. Seems very athletic. Not sure how his skill is facing up/shooting from outside, and unclear how he would be potentially switching matchups on the perimeter as we tended to do this year. But certainly would be a great way to fill a need and go a long way towards shoring up a the roster to compete for a MAC crown again.

Zero attempts from 3 last year and 45% from the line. 

Him and Davonta can compete for worst free throw %

His FG is very strong, 56%, second on the team

I can say Clemson is a mess right now, and their fans were not happy when he announced his leaving

Our bigs don’t have to hit 3s. Perkins was a bit of an anomaly, and while it was awesome that he could hit them sometimes it was frustrating not having a big under the basket

Kinda looks like a more polished offensively version of Ikenna Smart from the video

This would be a good add

My point wasn’t an indictment, merely an observation of his potential as a shooter.

Well he either hits his 3’s or is way off based off of this Lol

Interesting, so he can at least hit an outside shot if the chance comes to him.

Kinda has an odd bit of Idbihi feel to his shot lol.

Just from his quick highlight video he looks to move well. Like someone else said, kind of more polished version of Ikenna which would be perfectly fine.

I thought the same thing about him being like Ibidhi after watching that. Hopefully we somehow land all three because they all look like extremely solid players

And they all fill a position of need.  I'm used to landing guard after guard.  This would be a solid frontcourt.

We always struggle getting the stereotypical bigs, this would definitely be a different looking offense

White seems to have been taking this slow for some reason

It wasn't necessarily that we were struggling to get them, Oats and Hodgson just preferred to recruit non-traditional forwards that were athletic and could shoot the three-ball. Looks like Whitesell has a slightly different philosophy in that regard. I'm excited nonetheless about having some bruisers down low again

White has been working with academics to get all of his admissions in a row. I'd consider him close, minus any last minute academic university hangups. 

 

F yea!!!!
