Lets hope he has more skills than Svoboda our last foreign import. Obviously w/the offer list and others pursuing I gotta think its not a close race, but I admit Im always a little apprehensive about foreign recruits. Its not something Dayton has ever done very well in. In fact its something we've been piss-poor at. Maurice Beyina, Stephen Bami, Makor Shayok, Alex Gavrilovic, Matej Svoboda...every one of these guys was borderline Division-I. Kostas was about the only one worth two titties and he left for the NBA with a lot of meat left on the bone.
I hope this guy is in the mold of the foreign guys Mark Few always gets at Gonzaga. Or Randy Bennett's Aussies. On paper though and in his highlights he does look pretty tasty. Grant definitely recruited some size in this class. They all gotta do it in college though so past press clippings never made a future jumpshot.
Dayton is a solid "Buy" stock right now though. This year ain't gonna be anything like last year, but I think UD still has a shot to fight for league hardware with a lucky bounce or two. You only get one Obi. A league only gets one Obi. There was only one Jameer.
