    Wow, in those photos, the guys have turned into beasts. Except Prather. He's turned into a friggin' monster.

    Gotta love the difference a little bit of oil and some flexing does!

    I found that bizarre. But if it helps them play good b-ball, I'm for it.

    I found two interesting things in the article:

    1. Hill did not easily pass the "final exam" having to retake it at least once. To me this means for all the speed he seemed to have playing against high school players, it was still against high school players not college players. Speed is his game. This might be the first sign he is a frosh and will have to grow at UF.

    2. People said D. Walker was skinny when he came to UF. Boy they were right. His was the before and after pictures that did not seem enhanced to me.

    To point #1, I think it points more to his endurance conditioning more than it points to how his speed will translate at the next level.

    The photos in the article seem to reinforce that the transformation in body/conditioning from coming in to the program vs high school (or even VT - I was impressed with DFS's body change, leading me to believe we have a top notch S&C.program for hoops) is like night and day.

    Hill, in my opinion, is almost as quick and fast with a basketball in his hand as John Wall. I don't think we'll see much of a problem with Kasey getting where he wants to go on the court or see too much of an adjustment.

    All reports from practice so far seem to indicate he's been very impressive?

    DSF already had a year of S&C at VT, which didn't seem like it did much...his pic now is much different

    Prather looks freakish...really hope he has a good year
