Completely different situations, obviously, but Tauai was a total trainwreck as a frosh, but we had no choice to play him. A guy doesn't have to redshirt to still fulfill their potential within four years. I'll agree though it is a tremendous luxury to have.
JJ Tauai never really developed as a player. He was smart and just stuck to the one or two things he could do.

I think for me what's most encouraging is that Henry is here already. I didn't think he'd be here until the July session.

So that means the whole team is on campus? Good stuff.

OK, I am an old man and need to go to bed so I will give it up. Ja’shon Henry won the dunk contest and it wasn’t all that close!
That surprises me mex. He certainly didn't show me elite athleticism or dunking skills in the few online videos I watched.
Really?...Im hardly an evaluater of talent but the short clips I watched showed me a kid thats kind of beast and all about dunking. Lots of potential.

And winning a dunk contest against teammates, doesnt necessarily require "elite athleticism"..IMO
Thanks J.J. for what I consider sound advice!

Never said he was an elite athlete, but he is athletic. He is also strong for just getting to college. I didn’t start this to try and say he is the next coming of Hawkins. Just thought folks would find it interesting info.

Mex not to speak for JB but i’m quite sure his comments were not directed at you... he was simply discussing what he saw in Henry compared to what B4life described.

Also i’m sure nobody is critical of your off season tidbit. I think we all recognize it from a TIFWIW level and appreciate the inside scoop!!!!

Thanks
So I was in the airport the other day and I saw AL B., PM me if you want more details.

Oh yea, I didn't even think about that. I was for sure directing that at B4L, ( thus the quote) he's the one that mentioned elite athleticism.

Yes, blame me. FTR, I like Henry and my post wasn't meant as a knock against him. I think he'll be a nice piece in the puzzle. I'm just shocked that he was a better dunker than all of our other players.

Thanks for the info mex!

My post must of come across as if I was offended but I didn’t mean it that way. I had no issue with what anyone said. By the way I don’t like to brag but I did finally get that last pencil. :king
