Wow! He looks like he could play any position on the court!

I watched some of Chatman's videos from 2017 and wasn't all that impressed, but I found a couple from late in his senior year and he was in much better condition and much more athletic. I like him a lot more now than I did 6 months ago.

Here's one released on 4/6/18:

Also, here are two articles from March on his team's path to the state championship.

Will have to wait and see how ready he is, and no idea if he can shoot, but along with Laurent and Diallo, he should help give the team some bigger options at the forward spot(s) that was lacking last year, especially once Baldwin went down. Also should give the team a boost in athleticism up front, which can only help defensively and on the glass.

I saw some nice mid-range jumpers on the videos but in highlight reels they make them all.

They sure do. It’s also why I really try to not take too much from them...I mean you can certainly see some attributes in some of the videos, but it’s not like watching a kid play a few games. And it’s not like being a coach watching “tape” or “film” — it’s watching a commercial, which is fine, but it’s not the same.

At any rate, looks like he could be a lively, athletic dude with decent size. That’s a good building block I think. If he can shoot well that just opens up the spacing.

He's got a nice shooting stroke, a great high release point, he has a high motor, great attitude, in those vids he looks like he is a high volume scorer.....

I say he is the next Harper Williams......

I recall that too - I was sitting in row 14 almost at half court. One of the best sport events I have ever attended as a fan of any team.

My earlier post was dripping (actually gushing) with sarcasm; however, it would be awesome if this kid actually turned out to be the next Harper Williams.

This kid looks like he is physically strong and has the muscle to play near the basket. We can use that!

Welcome! Very interested to see if he is able to contribute from Day 1. With so many newcomers, he'll certainly have a chance.

Finally found a weight for him. Howard Pulley lists him at 6'8/200.

Looks to be a good fit for the position-less basketball McCall wants to play. A little concerned that we were far and away the best 'name' school that was interested - UCF came in late I guess. Either way McCall has earned the pass with Pierre so let's see how it works out. I'm not expecting much out of him early but hope he can develop his shot some (and maybe keep growing). Could be one of those impossible to guard types if he can shoot the 3 ball well.
