As a freshman. There could be room for growth after more work with Roose.

I can't wait to see this guy's max effort running jump - preferably on somebody's head.
Sometimes these verticals go down as guys getting into S&C and add muscle/weight.

Right. Hopefully that won't be the case here, but either way we're working with a rare athlete.

The trainers are pretty good at actually increasing it these days, a lot of strengthening of the muscles that enable the hops. Of course if he weighs in at 245 in two years that might be hard. I'm not seeing his body carrying that weight any time soon though.

Teach him to block shots without fouling
Some highlight videos out there have him doing CLEAN blocks, albeit not at the college level of play. But dude has a serious knack for blocking, and doe sit with intense attitude, too. He's a madman.
