    Terry Larrier is an exceptional athlete and leaper with plus length. We're going to need him a lot next year, especially in Purvis' role of getting out in transition.

    Hope he can make layups.

    Not sure if anyone follows Vance on snapchat but the other day he posted a video of him shooting a corner three in front of his bench during a game. When the ball was about halfway to the basket he turned around and started jogging away while pumping up his teammates. He knew it was going in and sure enough the shot was money. It was so cool. Reminded me of Steph Curry.

    I have a question about Vance that has popped up due to this year's circumstances. We know he can knock down outside shots, but can he get his own shot or is he a spot up shooter?

    That's one of the knocks on him. He isn't overly athletic and can't create his own shot. If he was 6-8, could shoot like that AND create his own shot he'd be top 10 in the 2016 class.

    If his game can translate into the college game, he may earn a starting spot next season. In my opinion Adams, Gilbert, Hamilton, and Brimah are locks to start. That last spot can go to anyone really but I like Vance's 3 point shooting.

    If you're 6' 8", you can get your shot off.

    Did Larrier start for Shaka?

    I know his #'s were solid as a frosh.

    I think Hooper pretty much summed it up. He's not real athletic or quick and he looks like he gets about 6 inches off the ground on his jumper. I think he'll be a very good role player and spot up shooter. With that said, he does score a ton in high school, I just don't think a lot of that will translate to the high D1 level. I certainly could be wrong, but even if I'm not I think he's a great pickup and a much needed sharp shooter.

    That's different than creating your own shot.

    Every team needs shooters though. I'd be happy if he's a sharpshooter who can shoot in the low to mid 40s percentage range from three.

    An effective stretch four to will be a monumental help for Jalen's game going forward. He should be able to get to the rim at will.

    Kind of feels like you're describing Gibbs, but with a massive advantage in shooting height. 6'8 guy who can drill it is a huge advantage in college ball.

    Does he have some decent post moves? Because he could be very effective in college at that inside-out role if he does.

    Sure that was the original CR thread from whence it came?

    Nice. Coach finally got his players. Now lets see what he can do with them. I hear we have a transfer that had to sit out this year but is schooling everyone in practice. They describe him as a Lamborghini

    Trying to imagine all three on the floor at the same time! 6-8 jumping jacks that can shoot, handle and rebound and can cause all kinds of mismatches.

    I will take a 6-8 guy who can make 3's - you never have enough good shooters - - we have enough athletes - we need more muscle and mean dudes, guys with basketball IQ and some skills.

    His games vs Huntington prep and La Lumiere are online.

    He struggles big time against both teams. Not sure he has had a great year to be honest.
