Intel wise, he transferred from Oregon because he wasn’t really happy with where he was on the depth chart and didn’t feel like the staff there would meet his development needs. He has a good attitude, is a good teammate and is easy to play with and coach. Wants to be challenged by coaches and provided with feedback. Overall, he plays hard, is a willing passer, recognizes teammates, shows good leadership and is very engaged and plays/practices with a true purpose. Only real downside for him so far is that UCSB hasn’t played and won’t play any high-level opponents this season unless they make it to the NIT or NCAA tournament. His family intel is good, and they are very involved but not enablers.
Even though he is a two-time transfer he has 3 seasons of eligibility left at UCSB. He probably should spend another season after this one to develop more even with having a huge upside for the next level.
