Rhoades did say on his latest coaches show that Tobis gonna play a lot as a freshman. Idk if that’s just talk for the show but we definitely have to be on the look out for Tobi. That athleticism is no joke
He did say that and I think Ed Nixon also touted Lawal's skills. He could end up being a huge pick up especially if he leads to VCU can sign some other international players. I read that VCU is in on another player from that area. It is always nice when a player is successful when lots of people slept on them.

I’ve been watching strasbourg YouTube games of Michael belle from England, if that’s who you’re referring too and they know each other. looks like a great fit for us

FYI, Rams Rewind this week will be publishing another episode in its Newcomers Roundup, with this one featuring an interview with Lawal's coach at Lee Academy, Daniel Haynes. That will probably come out tomorrow, unless I get tied up with my paying jobs.

NIck George was British, right? And didn’t we have a big fella from England who wasn’t bad as well? Drawing a blank on his name.

Take the time to listen to the interview with Toibu's high school coach, it will definitely raise your energy level and excitement for the future. It sounds as if he is pushing 6'9" with an athleticism rarely seen. Even more exciting was hearing his progression and work eithic. Let's allow this one some time to keep growing into what he could be by being patient, but I guarantee from what we are hearing out of The BDC that Lawal will see minutes. Is Toibu the next Len Bias, not likely and the same could be said for most any other player, but Toibu could be a blend of Phil Stinnie and Deri' Jenkins and that would be special !!!
