    He's smooth, patient and in-control. Also appears to be a tenacious defender. He's got a nice stroke whether he creates the shot himself or catches and shoots. He seems to have more athleticism than he shows. Like Beal, he saves his energy for the opportunities where he needs it most. Not worried about his size at all. His handle is superb. His court awareness and BB IQ are off the charts. Seems to be the kind of player who will adapt to the team around him instead of the other way around. He is yin to Hill's yang.

    Thanks! Good stuff!

    Outstanding dribbling and finishing skills. Seems to have great basketball sense for just making the quick/correct pass in traffic.

    Not sure what he did at the 0:18 second point :grin:

    Seriously underrated, for now. In those clips he appears to do a few things better than Hill. He's got a very nice stroke from outside. He finishes very well for someone his size, maybe better than Hill. His ball handling isn't quite as flashy, but it's just as effective. I know he's short, but he appears to have long arms. Who cares how far his head is from the ground. Very smart player. Whatever way our offense changes when Hill arrives, I see a seamless transition afterwards and a lasting one.

    If this kid starts at UF we are in major trouble.He looks to be a PE class star. Come on guys do you really think he can play at UF. I am thinking Junior College if at all.

    I'm on a phone, so can't tell if you are being sarcastic. Didn't Rivals rate him as a 4 star? I don't think rankings are a pure indicator of talent, but I'll take Rivals over your disparaging remarks all year.

    You are basing this evaluation off of what?

    What every recruiting service across the country has been raving about all travel season: great handle, quick hands, surprising vision for a small kid, can score at three levels, and plays with a chip on his shoulder.

    Just out of curiosity, do you watch much AAU ball or follow prep recruiting very closely? Because if so, then the you would be able to see he is a very talented young player whose major obstacle at the next level is his size, not his game. If not, then I understand since you could easily be evaluating him on a more unrealistic basis, like NBA play or something.

    Or there is the possibility that you have decided to litter the thread with multiple deprecatory comments for no apparent reason other than belittling the kid.

    Seriously .. how is this kid going to guard D1 level players. Is he going to penetrate like that versus UK guards or most any guards. If this kid plays any meaningful minutes I PROMISE i WILL QUIT POSTING.

    The eye test tells me this kid will be in trouble. I liked the guard that just transferred way better. NOt belittling , just assessing talent. Why is there an issue because I am not a O/B Pom - Pom guy. Can't we talk basketball without the proverbial "panties in a wad" ,member?

    Is this kid even in the same stratosphere as Kasey Hill? Of course not. Would I like to be dead wrong here.. ? Absolutely.. i just don't see it. :no:

    Trust your basketball coach. I think he's earned it. He's not a 4 star recruit for nothing

    So, you see a lot of players who can finish like this kid does in that first highlight video play, do you?

    I sense that your doubt is based more on Chiozza's little-kid looks than the skills he's showing. I bet you would have been similarly dismissive of Steph Curry when he was coming out of high school.

    Wait, so he has to be "in the same stratosphere as Kasey Hill" to play "any meaningful minutes"? And, for the record, he will guard D1 (not that there is such a thing anymore) level players the same he has on the travel circuit: by utilizing his leverage to get up into their frame and limit their ability to create off the bounce and by using his competitiveness and tenacity to his advantage.
