Yeah I just hope our luck with JC big guys changes. Actually I could just change that to big guys period.

It seems bulking up guys haven't worked so well for this program. Feet problems and poor shooting and so forth

One guy Carlton reminds me of is Mike Davis who played for Weber at Illinois. Mike was 6' 9" and weighed (maybe) 185 as a senior in high school. He wasn't getting much high major interest, so he was all set to go the prep route when UI swept in and signed him in the spring. Davis showed some flashes as a freshman, but he led the Big Ten in rebounding in his sophomore and junior seasons. Davis was a somewhat better leaper than Carlton, but Carlton is significantly taller and longer.

My guess is that Carlton will need to get up to about 215-220 to play in the Big 12, but I think he has a chance to become a major contributor as early as his junior season (this will be his sophomore season). In addition to decent rebounding and good shot blocking, Carlton is a good shooter. He also seems to be able to catch the ball pretty well, including one-handed.

Feet problems, I agree with, but poor shooting? Are you suggesting putting on muscle screws your shooting up? As long as a kid is shooting regularly, lifting weights and bulking up doesn't effect your shot. It's a muscle memory thing. Many guys go from HS to college, put on 10-15 lbs and become better shooters, then on top of that, the many guys who go from college to the NBA, put on 20 lbs and perfect their art of shooting.

Maybe I'm misconstruing what you are getting at?

You made me think back to when I was a kid. The coaches told us not to lift weights because it would screw up our shot. In high school that was hard to avoid because we lifted weights for football. Of course, by that time, the thinking was beginning to change on lifting weights for basketball.

i remember bob knight advising youngsters to not get too big because he felt it would hamper their game. this was back in the 90s when huggs was developing monsters at cincinnati.

And he was right. But, that was before basketball became a hybrid of football-basketball.

Remember when 2-3 blocks a game was a good number?
