Good to hear he's gained some weight.
He passes the ball pretty well too. Nice to see him include that in his highlights.Really like the shooting stroke for a big man. That is something that the lower level of competition doesn't effect too much.
I LOVE the controlled shot blocking, every shot block in that video leads to possession for his team. With the caveat that the level of competition is not high.
Not to be all negative Nancy, but he is up to 7'1" now, so gaining 15 lbs doesn't really mean he filled out in any meaningful way. This kid looks fantastic, I just hope he can fill out a bit. Still young and probably won't for a few years anyway.Good to hear he's gained some weight.
Holy ****! I usually don't comment on basketball highlight films as it is hard to project for me. However, that is one of the most impressive 7footer films I've seen.
I agree. And Baye Fall seems to be in the same category. It will be interesting to see how tall they are and ow much they fill out by the time they are sophomores ini college.The athleticism and attitude are really fun to watch in a guy that big.
It's really hard to evaluate HS film when there isn't really any competition. It would be nice to see film from his club team when the competition is much better than anyting in Wyoming or western ****braska.I usually don't comment on basketball highlight films as it is hard to project for me.
Currently ranked outside of the Rivals150 and No. 30 among centers in the class, I feel we have him underrated and he's going to receive heavy consideration to not only move into the rankings, but perhaps be elevated to four-star status the next time we update the Rivals150.
A bit better? I suggest you find more tape on Chet Holmgren if you think he and Lovering are comparable.For measure I just watched some of the highlights on the #1 ranked center and #4 overall on Rivals. A 7 footer from MN... kid is skinnier than Lawson, and maybe a bit better of a ball handler, but I see no difference in passing or outside shooting, and he looked less athletic than Lawson. I assume he plays far better competition and that's why he's ranked so high, but comparatively, the tapes match-up very well. For Lawson's sake, it's a bummer he can't get out on the AAU circuit right now to get that experience against better comp. Although, selfishly, maybe that helps ensure he doesn't get wooed by any power brokers...
When is the early signing date? Some time this fall?
