I dunno. I came away pretty unimpressed after watching him against Providence.

He's big, got size and got a good reach. Like you said, has a bomb for a shot, which he used to score a goal. But besides that, there isn't much offense there, Joel Hanley usually mans the point. I thought his mobility was somewhat poor. He gets where he needs to be but looks heavy on his skates so I'm worried if that will translate to higher levels.

Now UMass classmate Steven Guzzo, he's a guy I love...
