I saw this posted on JJ. Kid looks like a balla.

Couple blogs posted on JJ, as well.

Federico Mussini 6'0'' PG 1996

You can call him the Steph Curry of the Boot. Has close to zero NBA chances, but was one the most fun and clutch players of the tournament. Mussini made all the defenders trying to stop him crazy. His quickness is outstanding and he goes by people like a knife through butter. A great shooter from 3 pt and pull up jumper. Doesn't have a great body, very skinny, but he is strong and knows how to handle contact, which is how he scores so much in the paint. Despite that if he wants to play at higher level and be the successor to GianMarco Pozzecco, he needs to put some muscles eventually. His short size is partially overcome by his long arms that make him like a 6'3'' PG. Not a crazy athlete, but uses two hands like a piano player. One of the things to re-evaluate is his ability to involve teammates, he clearly knows how to create the advantage for the offense but almost never creates for his teammates. Maybe it's because his teammates on this Italian team aren't exactly the most skilled ( in particular the bigs), but if the plan is to play him behind Cinciarini in Reggio Emilia he will have to be a more classical PG and it will be interesting to see how he can adapt his game and also how his defense will be against stronger opponents than him. He did it last year in some games, like the Italian Cup quarterfinals and played great, but now will have to be more consistent. One thing is for sure, when he gets in his "zone" he is absolutely dominant like possibly only Rubio has been in a Youth European championships over the last 10 years.

I have never seen him or heard of him. But since the kid is Italian, he by default becomes my favorite recruit. :P

The angle makes him look 5'6. He's built like a pre-pubescent sixth grader. Clearly has a fluid release on his jumper, but he's got a lot of body movement which is unusual for a good European shooter. I cant imagine this kid could defend half the posters on this site let alone Big East guards. Good handle...interesting prospect...possibly a 6th man type.

Compare this kid, at 18, to some local PGs that have come through like Kyle McAlarney or Kemba Walker at 15 or 16 and he does not come out looking too good. He looks like the spawn of Corey from Boy Meets World and Olive Oil.

He looks like Arcidiacono. Arcidiacono has no body to speak of and very little muscular development but he gets the job done.

"After an impressive campaign at the FIBA U18 Men’s Basketball Championships, rumor is that Mussini is leaning towards staying overseas and earning a decent sized contract with a professional team over playing college basketball in the states. Right now, it appears the biggest challenger to Gonzaga for Mussini’s services is the professional game in Europe rather than a American university."
