This dude has 2 posts on here. This one and one in the Franck Kepnang thread saying we aren't out of it with him a few weeks ago. Here's hoping you're right lol.

I dunno - there are folks with hundreds of posts whose opinions aren't worth much more.

Seems doable and would make 21 haul solid in face of huge hole to fill in 22.

Let’s grab this kid. Legit 7-footer with athleticism. Buys us 2 years and gives us time to add other bigs after Toro is gone. Curry certainly looks like he can compete at this level, especially with some good coaching and cma’s conditioning.

After losing Kep, this kid is a must get if we want to be taken seriously. Imagine a real 7 footer with some offensive ability to go along with Posh, Cole, Champ, etc.

So unless we get this kid, who played 5 mpg for Ole Miss as a frosh and who committed more fouls than he scored points, we won't be taken seriously???
Sorry, can't take your posts seriously. Staff will decide whether he makes sense and I trust them.

He's got a good body, and if you go by just his workout videos he looks like he could play a JaVale McGee role if the rest of the team is running like the Warriors. But that's a huge leap based off a video when he has actual real-game experience to look at where he accomplished barely anything. And that was coming off a redshirt year too.

I won't be upset if he comes aboard because size is always good at St. John's, but I don't expect him to be more than a backup.

I think he is a must get because we are always so starved for true bigs. He has true size. Look at the teams who do well nationally...they have a real big and usually more than 1. We saw the impact Tariq had at 6'11...although way too thin, he had some offensive ability, blocking ability, and when he wasn't blocking shots he was altering them. Not sure we will be a regular NCAA team until we routinely get these types of bigs.

Last four National Champs...nobody 6'11 or taller averaging 9pp or more.
I think that the difference between 6'8-6'10 vs 6'11+ is way overrated by some on this board.
With the style of game we play, I'd rather have a Tariq Owens over a Marshall Plumlee
