I live in north carolina and we played against new hanover back when they had ty walker dude was blocking everything and he like 25 rebounds and 38 points he plays for wake forest now and he keeps the bech warm for the player who actually get pt dude has potential he's a very agile 7'0. Game got canceled beginning of 4th wuarter his teammate broke the backboard from a dunk dude was like 6'5 275 pounds he was huge.
Played reggie Bullock my junior year he was shooting from everywhere on the court he will pass the ball then come off a back screen just shoot it in our faces he rarely put the ball on the ground this guy has unlimted range and he has long arms he is very lanky a solid defender this guy is a legit prospect.
Just saw Royce the other day at lifetime, with some UNI, OSU and Euro pro guys playing, he looked pretty out of shape and slow. How he was a 5 star I don't know.
