I know the league pretty well and there are probably 1 -2 dozen dmen of the same or better skill set. is it size? is it contacts? is it luck of the draw? Like I said, I am by no means knocking the kid, just trying to understand the system.
In this specific instance, he said of himself that he had a late growth spurt and it could be indicative of beng overlooked by other leagues.
