Based on what I saw in his video I would put him at the 3 and move Davenport to the 4. This kid is going to play more than 10 minutes for us unless Wes pulls in another 2 wings that are better than him. I know he's at least looking for one more but not sure if he takes 2.

We need to focus on getting 3 bigs. Starting 5, backup 5, solid PF. Assuming Lakhin stays that should be enough.

Agreed, I'm guessing he will be the starting 3 (20+ minutes). Looks like a 3 and JD stays at the 4. Fills out one spot with a very good player if he gets back to Sophomore year form. Now we need a backup 3, backup 4, starting 5 and backup 5 (plus possibly another PG if DDJ transfers).

I would imagine if DD does not commit soon to Wes with 2 feet in...Wes will add another PG and it might help DD make his decision easier.

There are some full games for Clemson on youtube if you want to get in real deep.

He definitely gives Keith Williams flashbacks, sometimes in bad ways. Loose ball handling and getting called for a charge because he's out of control on a drive.

Elite athlete. On offense he's seems to be a straight line drive guy who can finish around the rim and good passer. Not a primary threat, but a guy who can go off if you lose him.

On defense, can guard the 1-4 and guard them all well (though can struggle with bigger 4's). Gets steal, blocks and rebounds. Closes out well on the three.

His biggest weakness is his three point shooting. If he could get that to 35% he'd be much better. Shot selection seems good, doesn't take many mid-range jumpers.

His shooting form looks good and FT% (92.3% last year, though on only 13 attempts, 72.6% in 19-20 on 84 attempts) hint that maybe there's a reasonable chance of his 3 point percentage improving.

He was hurt last year, but he also has disciplinary action taken against him by the coaching staff. They sat him a game and then he never really played more than 10 minutes in a game after that.

Hope he's not a hot head...but I am guessing Wes will be comfortable with keeping him in check and knows the situation pretty well whatever it is/was.

Oh oops, wasn't paying attention to the quote you quoted.

Langston I don't know much about. I don't pay much attention to guys until they actually commit here, too many players to look at at that point.

Yeah, players who are available are meant to go in the Potential Incoming Players thread, so this thread can stay focused on our actual team and general needs. I'm the one brought up Langston here, but I moved the ensuing discussion.

He was not terrible “through and through.” Dude should not have ever been playing as much as he did though, at his size 20-25 min should have been max. All his production decreased because of his overuse.
