Player Development

Is anyone else disturbed by the lack of development in Jarnell? I don't completely buy into the whole stars rankings, but this kid clearly has the physical ability to dominate at his position. If anything he has digressed from last year and you cannot blame it all on Maymon being out. Thoughts?

I think he's either a head case like Scotty Hopson or he's got something wrong with him.

Yet McRae suddenly looks like a 2nd round player. can you explain that one? and Yemi looks light years better.

Stokes and Golden have regressed greatly though.

He can't stay in the game long enough to get anything going. Always has at least 1 or 2 stupid calls called against him.

I said in the offseason that stokes wasnt as athletic as he needed to be. He's only 6'8 and will struggle with long post defenders. He needs a midrange jumpshot before he is Nba ready. He will be here four years IMO.

It is disturbing. If CCM is going to make UT nationally relevant, he will have to prove he can get players like Stokes in the league. Stokes, even IF overrated in high school, should be better than he is playing and that may inhibit getting other 5*, or even high 4*.

Dude's essentially a freshman and can't yet handle a double team. Misses Maymon badly. But yeah, we should probably pull his scholarship.

Honestly, stokes isn't more athletic than Chism was. Chism didn't make a roster and he had a much better post game.

Bingo. He can barely get off the floor when he jumps. Consequently, all he can do is bang.

He's a 4 more than he is a 5. Needs a face up game.
