Being in the top 100 is a ranking of your effort prior to that point. It doesn’t measure what you after that.

It looks like he is skilled offensively (of course everybody does in highlights), but I can't help but wonder how he fits defensively since we are about 98% man to man and we love to hedge and recover. Will he be quick enough to do that?

I think there is more that goes into those rankings than ability.

I saw a tweet that said he was so agile at 300 pounds he could play the 2 through the 5. :shrug: Of course he shot a miserable — imho — 30% from 3 and we have enough 3 pt shooters we won’t won’t need him to. It’s nice to know his game is so versatile for a man his size.

From a “run-out-and-set-a-screen” standpoint I think he will be fine. Besides we have three other bigs who can do that in Sanchious, Smith and Davis. We need a guy down low.

Love me some AJ Patty references. He will go down as the MSU GOAT in failed expectations

While I do have my doubts about freshman coming in and contributing to a championship, I have been proven wrong a couple of times with both Payne and Morant. With that said, I am probably hearing more positive chatter about Daquan Smith coming in than I ever did with Payne or Morant. So I think we will have some growing pains at the start of the season, but I am sure we will probably have the best guard combo in the conference by February. If not this year, then definitely next.

Checking out some comments we made after signing Darnell and thought this was interesting. I know I like that he’s confident enough to take the ball coast to coast but I wish he would have passed the ball on that one where he turned it over instead. This guy just needs more PT under his belt.
