Wow pretty good highlights. Really like how he plays.
AllBuffs: Where the stereotype of 'Boulder Elitists' is met and then some
athletic yet short PG with great vision.. like. unable or unwilling to shoot the 3, dislike.
I liked what I saw...in college though some of his inside stuff wouldn't work but he has good shooting form and you need shooters like that to space the floor
I think it takes a pretty big talent to justify giving a 6th scholarship this year, and I'm not sure Stalzer qualifies. I'd rather be patient here.
The stats, star ratings, and offer list may not be impressive, but, keep in mind he's playing at Mater Dei. The other four starters on the team are not only D-1 players, but they're all top-100 ranked players. He wasn't asked to score a lot. That being said it sounds like he was the "glue" player on the team; the leader on and off the court who made everything run smoothly and he has good vision and is a good passer. That's what you want out of PG. He's also got good size for the position and he can dunk so he must be a pretty good athlete too. I also saw one article which called him the best defensive player on his team. As far as shooting goes he shot 33% from three which is decent and i'm sure it will get better. Basically I think he's like a better version of Nate Tomlinson.
Thorburn is calling our recruiting class the Coors 6-Pack. Weak.
"Tad just kept coming out and watching Xavier, and I think he fell in love with Eli and what he can do," Mater Dei head coach Gary McKnight said during an interview with the Camera on Thursday night. "He can really handle the ball, he can play the point or the two, and we usually put him on the other team's best player to defend."
But a big Buff welcome to Eli! Don't worry, frosh, AllBuffs will come up with a better nickname for you!
