Well the three things that NA really values - "Size, speed and work ethics" he doesn't have (yet). That actually doesn't sound promising. He might get drafted if he starts to put in good numbers.

Maybe that is a problem when local leagues decline in quality. Talents will (sometimes) feel they can dominate as stars even when they don't have to work extra hard. Hope he matures so he understands it's time for a wake-up call and change of life.
