I saw some high school highlights where he was considered a four star recruit, but have not seen how he's progressed the last few years. Still, I'd take a hard look at him and he should probably take a hard look at the Buckeyes. We don't know for sure, but it's entirely possible that Kaleb is just one more stumble away some serious down time... maybe forever. Also, it's probable that Kaleb will be more effective if he's only playing 20 minutes per game because of his conditioning. I don't mean this necessarily as a criticism. With his body type, he just might not be able to get into effective 30-35 minute shape. Going 20 minutes for each guy may actually be best for the team. The probability of playing 20 minutes on a very good team, for a coach he likes, while working on a graduate degree from a very good school, should look pretty good to him.

When he signed, I was able to find two full games of his JC team online. In both, he played two guard and basically stood around on defense while taking a bunch of long three-pointers. Don't think I've ever seen a player change so much in terms of effort. He gave every bit of what he had to the Buckeye team and I'll respect him forever.

I for one have those high expectations. This year we've been in every game except yesterday and have had woefully weak talent at the most important position in college basketball... point guard. The two guys replacing Jackson and Woods are much better ball handlers and penetraters. If you recall, last night Dakich must have said 100 times that you have to go north and south and get into the lane to beat Purdue. Our new guys can do that and it opens up everything up on offense. Not only can they score in the paint, but more of those forced three point shots will be wide open. Then add two front court guys who are more highly rated than anyone we have now and the future is very, very bright.

Not kidding. I think I heard somewhere that he is now a model in Japan. Guess they don't have a lot of 6'5" white guys running around, so his novelty gets him a modeling career.

Wow... a Jody Finney reference! You must be nearly as old as I am. Allan Hornyak could also shoot a little bit.

Actually, I think  Holtmann's bitching to the league office about the horrible foul calls on Kaleb just may be bearing some fruit. During the last couple of games I think I've seen a number of cases where Kaleb got the benefit of the doubt like he never got before.

I guess we can give him a pass this time because this head coach thing is still pretty new, but he will probably want to stop saying... " I think the guys on offense are really excited and there’s a lot of energy and positive momentum on our side of the ball." Ryan, both sides of the ball and special teams are your side of the ball now.
