He appears to be built like former Blue Devil and one time NCAA freshman shot block record holder Keith Closs. Both were originally from Southern California too, right? Sounds like this kid has his work cut out for him in the weight room, but over 4 years he could become something special. He had interest from PAC-10 and Big East schools, so he must have the potential. Now I really don't worry that we lost out on that kid to UMass. The recruiting CCSU is able to pull off is pretty amazing considering this is still a relatively small school in a lower ranked conference. It really says a lot about the school and its staff.

Anyway, I think he should have an immediate impact in the NEC as a shot blocker and he should be able to score some points in the paint. It will be real interesting how he fairs against UConn (good thing Oakfor will be in the NBA)and some bigger non-conference teams, especially early in his career. He should be able to take some of the inside pressure off Pittman and allow Rich to really be an impact player next season. Although the team loses Robinson, they gain 2 solid recruits to a young team that made the NEC finals. Next season is already looking good! Insider - to the extent you can, keep us updated on scheduling.

I remember Closs.... He got shoved around pretty good, but then Closs was no where near 230 Lbs... Is this kid really 230?
