yeah, I was about to say look at Belle's body and look at Fat's body. End of discussion. A bigger stronger Fats will be a great asset to our team for years to come. He has everything else.Right now Fats doesn't have the body to compete in the A-10. And he definitely doesn't have the body to compete at a P5 school. He needs to put on some weight and get stronger. He's 6'7" and 160 lbs. Belle is 6'7" and 215 lbs. Even Jason Nelson is 5'10" and 175 lbs. He just needs to "beef" up during the off season and improve his strength so he has the ability to play both solid offense and solid defense.
I’d guess Tobi. Although, I think that’d be a bad move on his part.Certainly feels like he's the first person I'd think would transfer. He had some D1 offers but I take that more the Team Loaded Adidas connection than anything else. He just doesn't go hard enough and loses all focus. Its ashame cuz I know Ryan Odom would love to split him and Belle depending on the matchup (offense vs defense). I don't see him making a lateral transfer unless for a coach like Penny Hardaway that takes on kids that need more mental development than skill. Low major D1 more likely
I agree. I remember when Kevin Johnson was trying Mark Price. He count because as early as he was getting into the gym He said Price was doing more. Doesnt mean he didnt stop trying.Body, Heart/attitude, Skill, and your teammate competition all factor in to playing time. Any player wanting more PT can work on the first 3.
i think he needs to play to get experience. odom says they have talked about though and i still think he is in the long term plan
VCU is in the middle of competing for an A-10 Championship, and at least a double bye to the A-10 Tournament. Now is not the time to give players playing time just to get experience.
He also scored 23 in a win vs Penn State and 13 in a close game against Memphis. Fats has more potential than anyone on the team. I really hate seeing him on the bench. He's a great scorer and plays hard on every play. Can't say that for some of the guys getting the bulk of the minutesPeople forget he got experience vs GW and the Bonnies and we started 0-2 in conference.
