I have to agree. He talked about how great a athlete and player Doumbia was and how potent Beatty would be. Hope he is right on some of these guys but I am in wait and see mode. Seems its a boom or bust type class.

Just for the record Bryant looks like he has some potential and a solid pickup. Needs to live in the weight room but has some skill.

He might have been right on both.. Doumbia was a phenomenal athlete.. Everyone including Shaw knew he was a project... Beaty showed flashes of talent.. The kid seemed to love Five Points more than practice

Bryant is the most athletic wing player Frank has signed here. If he had stayed at Huntington Prep is is a Top 75-100 player. Was rated 8n the Rivals 150 after last summer. Went back home to Winter Haven, Fla and was out of sight, out of mind for the analysts. High flying lefty. I’m fully on board with this pick up.

I see him as a project in the same way I saw Silva as a project, he desperately needs a year or two in the weight room but he should be able to contribute at least some as a freshman with his best days ahead and room for massive growth.

Point taken.. My point was poorly articulated... Best way to say it is Keyshawn is tons more adept at basketball than some other Frank Martin projects.. He is years ahead of Doumbia.. There will be an adjustment and maturing process.. But he is a baller and makes us better

I also think he is ahead of Silva... Chris couldn't make a layup or a free throw as a freshman.. He was a dunker, a shot blocker and rebounder when he wasn't fouling

Wow. I'll take it.

With Minaya figuring to be improved, that might be too optimistic - only room for two wings in the starting line-up. But I am with you, it is nice to have that much ability at the wings.

Doumbia had talent but was a 6'6" - 6'7" inside player, and very raw. Coming in late did not help. Bryant is the same size but ahead in his development, and he is a wing with athletic ability.

Beatty had talent but did not improved - if the Five Point rumors are true, that would explain it. I would be President right now if it were not for that damn place.

So maybe Jamie Shaw is not that bad at evaluating talent - let's hope that he is right on Bryant, and that he comes in early with a willingness to work hard.

I agree. Silva was probably more developed on the defensive end than Bryant. But Bryant is definitely more adept offensively. If he's able to fill out that frame watch out.

Of course you are right. I got caught up in the excitement.

But I think both Lawson a Bryant are extremely athletic. One or both will play a lot. I can see a starting lineup of Gravett, Minaya, Lawson, Bryant and Silva. I think Moss or Campbell will take over as PG.

He’s a kid who’s so athletic, when he gets near the basket, he’s just jumping over people,” Woodside said. “Most kids will stop and take the five to seven-foot jump shot, Keyshawn’s going to jump over the people and dunk it. So you’ll see a lot of his videos, there’s no mid-range shots, if he gets near (the basket). He wasn’t playing against 6-9, 6-10, 6-11 guys, so he’s just jumping over people.

Very athletic, long, rangy arms.
Looks like he gives us some better athleticism on the floor (the one area I think we really lacked last year).

Also looks comfortable enough with the ball in his hands.

Decent offer list with Memphis, Florida Gulf Coast and Wichita State offering.

As is the past...the key will be does he stay here more than one year.

at this point im not that concerned that his outside shooting needs work, but for him to make a difference for us he needs to be able to handle the ball and break down the defense. if he can do that with his athleticism he can help us greatly even if hes not knocking down 3's at even an average clip. others may disagree but an athletic wing with size who can create at the end of the shot clock allows us to get away with a pg who isnt a good penetrator.

While Iím excited about his potential I think the MJ comparison is WAY over the top. Kid hasnít played a second of real college basketball. But I am really excited heís a Gamecock.
