    New Video of Anthony Clemmons.....

    Haven't seen this one before. Found it on another site. Anthony is outstanding on defense. Perhaps as good as I have seen in high school.....

    He certainly knows what to do with the ball and is a very good passer. I am starting to think that he and Mike G. will share playing time equally. We are extremely fortunate to have talent like this coming.....

    Once again, I can hardly wait for the season to begin.....

    Love the look of him as a "glue" guy. He needs to get WAY more elevation on that jump shot, though.

    I'm sure this was posted yesterday, but Marc Morehouse posted something on Twitter to the effect of:

    Fran said that all 5 incoming freshman will get a chance to play a lot of minutes next year.

    Or something like that...I'll see if I can find it.

    Glue for certain. His jump shot looks like what they used to call a set shot.....

    Definitely will need more elevation on his jump shot when he gets to play in the B1G.....

    I have a feeling that all five incoming freshmen will get significant playing time. There is a lot of raw talent there, more that we have had in a long time.....

    There is not a lot of talk about Kyle Meyer who, I believe, will be a force on D. Opponents will not be able to score at will in the middle so easily, especially if we have him and Adam in at the same time. I imagine that will occur on occasion. Fran has quite a few combinations to experiment with.....

    Look at the pass at 2:39. 3/4 court, left-handed, of one dribble. That's an incredibly difficult pass and he made it look like a 5 foot chest pass.

    Really, Rick and the offensive line knew we were going to get it done. Nothing was going to stop us. You could’ve put 24 players out on defense and we were going to somehow get it done.”-DJK-

    He dunks surprisingly well, considering his size. He attacks the basket like an assassin, an Aaron White assassin......

    Agree with the assessments above. He appears very strong on defense, both at the point and coming from down low on the wings.

    Good passer, great going to the basket. His perimeter shot needs work; it's largely coming from his right shoulder. That'll get blocked a lot in the conference. Needs to come from more above his head and rely more on his wrists for direction and follow-through.

    Have maintained all along he will challenge Gessel for PT. Will be a nice battle to have.

    Especially left-handed, very difficult to do.....

    It is a good position to be in, having quality players battling for playing time. In Fran's system all should get their time on the floor.....

    I think between AC and MG we will be good enough at the point to let Marble play the 3 almost exclusively. It will be nice having a 3 on the floor with can create his own shot, and finish at the rim.

    There's a reason so many people who have seen him think he will be the gem of the class.

    Although he lacks elevation on his jump shot it, his release is pretty quick which I think kinda compensates his elevation. Very excited to see these frosh come in.
