  • 2 stars


  • 2 stars

Of Note:

  • Work in progress.  He’s tall.  That’s about the best you can say about his game right now.
  • Needs to be more aggressive on defense. He should be challenging every shot in the paint. Needs to learn from Cheick Diakite in this respect.
  • Runs well for a tall guy. Can get up and down the court.
  • Might redshirt.
  • Originally verballed to south florida, Greenberg’s former coaching stop.
  • Averaged 14 points and 11 rebounds as a junior.
  • Used to weigh over 300 pounds but then he got on the NutriSystem program and lost almost 60 pounds.  “Eat like a man, still lose weight,” says Chris Carter, former NFL star about the program.  “My wife tells me I’m less disgusting,” added John Kruk, former MLB star, when asked about NutriSystem.
