Seems like a good pickup to me. Got 4 new bigs. One of them has to work out.
Somebody either pissed off the God of Big Men in the program or someone put a curse on the program. We need an exorcism and a burnt offering just to cover all the bases. If at least one of these guys isn't good and can stay healthy then just go ahead and run up the white flag.

I watched the full game video harv watched.
Imo. Good potential but won't play much this year. Has to get heavier and stronger.

I don't believe in red shirts but would be best for him.

I am happy to have CL onboard.

As with others, I agree that he needs to gain some strength.

It looks like last year he averaged slightly over one three-point shot per game so he was not taking an inordinate number of three-point shots. Unfortunately, the shooting percentage was poor (26.5%).

On the other hand, he shot over 70% on FT's which is very good.

I also noticed the 70% free throw rate. That indicates he at least has something reasonable in his shot...may not be 3 point potential, but 10-18 feet would be fine for a 4-5. He needs weight obviously, so it is too bad he can't be on campus now for the strength staff to really get into him. We'll see how much he can get done with only their direction. Actually we will see that with all of our guys. That will reflect their true motivation!

He said in an interview that Weber recruited him to be a stretch 4. Said he can guard centers and has a little back to the basket game but his strength is facing up. We'll see.

Hurt was 6'10", 275lbs. Linguard is 6'11", 200lbs.

Carlton seems a bit more mobile and athletic then Stephen, who loved his jump shot, but I don't remember him having a lot of moves with the ball. Then again, 75 lbs lighter will make you a bit more mobile.
