KAEO: Sean East

Long overdue to get a thread going for Sean.

He's currently 20th in the country in APG (3rd among frosh), and 25th in assists-turnover ratio (again 3rd among frosh). I think we've got a gem.

I watch Sean alot during games, kid really has a great court vision. He's made some great passes and sees things before they happen as his hometown guy has posted. When these guys play together a little longer, I think he'll really shine. He's good, and he plays D

leads the team in FG%, which I would not have predicted. Then again, I would not have predicted that TJ would be the leading scorer and Samba would lead in rebounds.

Yeah, Samba is coming into his own this year. Much more aggressive going to the hoop and on the boards. I imagine he's fully healthy now. Only a sophomore, he should get even better

East nabbed one of the A10 Rookie of the Week awards in the first two weeks, and currently has a 34:7 (4.86) A:TO ratio.

Pumped that we could potentially have this guy four years.

So far he is one of my favorite recent freshmen.

He sort of reminds me of Anton Brown and DK a little. He's off to a better start than either Anton or Derek. Seems like real natural.

I think Carl's work ethic has set a good example for the freshman like East and the returning sophomores.

This team is far more likable compared to last year.

I think East makes the team more watchable.

I am not sure what his ceiling is but there is upside. I think he going to continue to develop both his game and physically.

Such a nice recruiting class. Preston's seems like he gets incrementally more comfortable on the court with each game.
