Appreciate

His blue collar work ethic & positive attitude.

Running court so well

Catching ball better, just needs to work on passes below waist.

Credible rebounder

Understanding time & place better, knowing limitations & avoiding long jumpers.

Great teammate

Comes from solid family, has great support system pushing him to get better.

If he never puts on a ton of weight, I still suspect he will be one of those multi purpose guys good teams need. Kudos to Matt for recognizing his upside. Nice to have him two more seasons after this.

If he works hard off season and can put on 20 pounds, He can be very good next year.

Agree completely. Have loved Tariq since he first stepped foot on the court. Like many of the other kids, he's being asked to carry a heavier load than he should have to, and has done an admirable job of it. The two words that comes to mind when I think of Tariq: Energy and passion.

At this stage is a perfect 1st big off the bench. Would be fine in that role even if we were good. Ironically the reason we are where we are is the two guys he was supposed to play behind have stunk and or left.

I can see the Warrick comparison. Unfortunately we don't have Melo. Although 2017 Melo sort of resembles Ahmad.

Still have issue with the long john look under his uniform however. No wonder he can't gain weight must lose 10 pound each game.

Really agree. Amazing energy, effort, and seems to really want to win in a bad way. Does a lot of little things and makes extra type plays. Getting better quickly too. You need guys like him to build programs, and if you pair a few guys like him as upperclassmen with a few aces that's often when you can do some bigtime winning.

Priority #1 is to get stronger, but as you note even if he doesn't still clearly can contribute. Can't teach that kind of length, and he's coordinated.

So in addition to adding weight am really hoping his offense takes another step forward next year. He's already skilled, good footwork, goes strong to rim and good looking jumper. If he can make that 10-15 footer more consistently, with his high release will be very tough to defend. If he can build off of that with a few counter moves, with his ability to get to rim from mid/high post with 1-2 bounces, think he could turn into a very nice complimentary offensive piece.

One more thing to add to the diet. Please please please find someone to teach him a jump hook. With his length he could be unstoppable with it if he could make it go in!
