      He needs to bunk with KR.

        Looks like a redshirt to me. Can he shoot past 1 foot? What was his free throw percentage? Definitely a rim protector but McFarlane is a way more skilled player in almost every area.
        If a player can't shoot the three it will be hard to get on the floor as a 4 in today's basketball.

          Did you watch the video on the opening page - he hit several three pointers. I'm not saying he's not a redshirt candidate but he's not the project that EO was either.

            He would be a great addition, especially if he is willing to be patient on playing time for a year.

              I’ve seen 6’10” 200 lb guys before who are ready to play. He might be stronger than he looks on the video. He can jump 2-3 times in the time Poor Bear jumped once. He’s quick, and has extra long length. He has shooting range and lateral quickness for defense. He may not be able to take on a low post who bulls him backwards, but on the perimeter, his defense will be fine. And with summer weight training, he might be able to add another 10-15 pounds. I think he’s ready now, or at least by November to play a stretch 4.

                  I was thinking more of who he would be behind next year at the 5 than him. ( Udeze and McFarlane) If he can hit the 3 at 35% plus then of course he could get minutes at the 4. If not, then no he is a 5.

                    Put at the 4 and pair him with either Udeze or MacFarlane and we can defend and rebound way better. The kid is a jumping jack!!

                      Yep, he’s a super athletic 4 that could be a five in the future if he gained a bunch of weight and muscle.

                        And this year, if Mading’s the 3rd 5 man, the coaches have 5 fouls x 2 players before they have to play him at the 5

                          Dudes not a 5 at all. He can run the floor and has range. Not bad handles for a big either.

                            Neither was Trey last year at 6'6, but they used him when they had to. At least Mading would be 6'10, and can block shots. Perhaps better, and perhaps not.

                              This "who's a 4 and who's a 5" is interesting, particularly when one looks at the Final 4.

                              Houston - They list 4 guards and a 6'7" 4/5 (shoots 35% from 3) as their top 5 mpg players. #6 AT 17 MPG is a 6'8" "center".

                              UCLA - They list 5 guards as their top 5 mpg players. #6 is 23 mpg and 6'9" center.

                              Baylor - They list 5 guards as their top 5 mpg players, none over 6'5". #7 is listed as a guard, but is 6'9" and shot nearly 40% from 3. #6 is 6'8" bruiser around 19 mpg.

                              Gonzaga - They list 3 guards and 3 F/C as their top 6 in mpg. Those three forwards are 6'10", 6'8", and 6'7" who can all run the floor.

                              These teams seem to challenge what it is to be a 4 or a 5.

                                You gotta have 5 playmakers on the court. You can’t have a weak link. All 5 guys have to be guys that can carry the team at some point in game. We didn’t have that, we had 2, maybe 3.
