To the Gators.
Is he a part of this year's class? Please?
Great start to the offseason. Welcome aboard Jason!
Yes 2019 commit. Moves up our class ranking to 6 (was 10) on 247. Not yet updated on some of the other sites.
yes he is.
If he has conditioning issues, he has about 6 months to get ready!!!
More like 18 months. The kid isn't ready, gonna redshirt this one for sure.
Yes, but if he pans out he can be a complete monster in college
No brainer take with 4 open spots. The 2 big IFS are losing 60 lbs or so and bigger will he have a reoccurring issue with his foot, which is pretty common for big post players once they break it once. If he can handle those 2, certainly a kid we can develop over next couple years
We'll see. We may need him for 5 min or 5 fouls, which ever comes 1st.
I think he has plenty of time to get in shape for next season, if he can rebound and defend he'll see the floor.
Pickens & Greene will be instrumental in Jason’s development! Get to work!
I see your point, but we've got Gak, Bassett, Stokes right now as 3 true centers. Not sure it'd be worth spending a year of eligibility on a 3 minutes per game 4th center.
yeah, it wouldn't be the worst thing to RS him, but I'm not counting on Gak yet.
Also, I like Stokes at the 4 vs. 5. (when conditioned properly)
Even if they redshirt him, he can still practice, which would benefit not only him, but our other big guys immensely having someone to bang against every day.
I think he won't be ready to play until early january
Totally agree. There's no one on the roster with his monstrous size, which will be great practice for the other bigs.
He's recovering from injury so that may play into the decision to redshirt him.
Either way, if he develops and gets his conditioning right, he could be really, really good.
Lol, and I presume the program will give vague reasons at best for why?
Certainly appears that the periodic sniffing you read that the truly big dude is outmoded in Mike White's preferred dribble-drive offense - or at least that the kid must be rangy and run like a deer - was incorrect. Or, that Mike has changed his mind.
Even as a project, he fills a need so well worth the risk
can't teach size
