    "Jason Jitoboh showed some great flashes at the end of last season demonstrating a fantastic ability to hedge ball screens despite his massive frame. Offensively he also showcased a great set of hands when it came to both catching the ball and finishing, something that makes him rather unique on the roster."
    I must have missed these games. But I do like JJ's potential.

    I saw JJ’s potential. Limited opportunity will provide limited highlights but was impressed.

    It seems like our front court will have their work cut out for them. Major challenges!

    might really need to run other team’s bigs ragged. Can we? If it’s a half court game: I’m not feeling very optimistic at this juncture.

    Well, you can't win at a high level without good guard play. You can win at a high level with merely serviceable post play. I think we'll have the good guard play, and good play from the forwards, with quality depth. If Omar and Jason hold up well--blocking out, rebounding, defending, passing--we should be okay. Both of them need to show improvement over their freshman seasons and they will. If Castleton is eligible, we should also get scoring offense out of the center. I think we'll be okay.
    No room for injuries, illness, suspensions, or anything else of the sort at that position, though.

    He has certain qualities that you can't teach. I do hope the stuff that you CAN teach catches up. For our and Mike's sake.

    JJ was hampered by slow foot speed/lateral movement, and his biggest problems were on the defensive end.
    Hopefully conditioning allows him to improve these areas.
    i think he could be really good. He has a great fame, good hands and a nice touch around the hop. And he he seemed to have a natural kind of feel for the game.

    Does anyone know if CMW or anyone from the UF program has worked with an attorney on getting Colin’s 2020 eligibility?

    JJ seems like a pretty smart guy. I just hope he can get in the best shape of his life during the pandemic
