I am amazed at how

I am amazed at how coordinated this guy is for 7'8". Usually any player with enormous size tends to have major health issues and can not make it up the court easily. He will need to improve on his game, but there is plenty of potential there IMO since he still has coordination despite that size. 7'8" is freakin ridiculous. I wish him the best.

He averaged about 2.5 points

He averaged about 2.5 points 2.8 rbs and 1.4 blocks per game in about 7 minutes. Definately a project, but with only one year left of college ball, he'd need to make a big impact next season to get drafted. The fact his height is natural and not caused by a pituitary tumor is intriguing, but you have to question a player of that size's stamina and resistance to injury. Lets remember Kenny George was a much more productive giant player probably most well known for Tyler Hansbrough dunking on him, was only a projected late 2nd rounder or undrafted free agent before he had part of his foot amputated ending his basketball career.
