    You got some game-by-game numbers to back that figure up?

    We definitely need to see more. But he also shouldn't be held as an example as KO's inability to develops bigs. Because that implies that Brimah ever had that potential and I don't think he did. And maybe NBA lotto pick was a bit of an exaggeration lol

    The competition in that video makes the infamous chair look like a lottery pick

    Surprised there isn't more tape of him. Seems like the only think from keeping him from vaulting him into the top 75-100, at the very least, is average athleticism.

    Just a bit but if that prediction happens because he does improve dramatically you will be my hero! And it bodes well for the team;)

    "A much more skilled version of Dakari Johnson"...I find that hard to believe, but even saying that if Georgetown wanted him then that is a good sign to me. They've done very well with under the radar bigs during JT3's tenure.

    That's not an accurate list of Carlton's offers.

    17 missed layups and a 72% FG%. He must have meant 80 points rather than 8.

    Sarcasm obviously got lost.

    My post had literally the same exact type of sarcasm, so you tell me if it's lost.

    Shocked that this turned into rankings worries. He'll be under the spotlight much more often as Harvey's offensive sidekick next year, and with his UConn commit I bet he'll make some top 100 lists like Diarra did. Who cares? I trust KO's evaluations more than Jerry Meyer's.

    Haven't seen anyone else mention it yet - seems like Killings already had a big impact on Carlton's recruitment.

    Unless they have some AAU or camp connection that is surprising - was working the last few days full out - so I appreciate all the guys who stepped up confirming news.

    No need to sweat, college basketball is not about one and dones. Be fun to watch his development. I'm confident we got a good one.

    Welcome Josh!

    A big who rebounds well is always a welcome addition. I am very happy to have Carlton as a Husky. Welcome aboard Josh.

    I know I shouldn't say this, but Josh could be the perfect insurance policy for Juwan.

    This kid has the size, and with practice time against Enoch and our other good bigs will expedite his development. Brimah for many years primarily had Tyler then Nolan for practice competition.

    Our stable is not empty that's for sure.

    He just grew 1-3 inches to 6-11; so it starts already
