(Shrugs) Some guys just need more time. I'm actually not too surprised. I saw a lot of things from his play in college that bothered me some. It seemed to me that he was a bit too used to the game flowing to him. Too much cruising for my comfort level. To be honest, last spring was the first time I really saw the potential he truly has...and he has a ton.
It will take time to learn new habits and adjust to the fact that what once worked no longer does. This is the first time he's been seriously challenged at any level of play. So now we will see how he adjusts.
He needs to be a bigger, stronger version of Hags. A much more fundamentally sound two way player. That way the coaches/team mates will have confidence and when the opportunities come his natural talent will take over. He's no where close to that right now.
