Freshman forward Donovan Williams

Recommended Posts

Yeah he was the biggest revelation from Tuesday. We didn't hear much offseason noise about his prospects, good or bad, so when he came out playing confidently it was a welcome surprise. I look forward to seeing what the young man can do.

yes, he stood out to me too.

Hopefully he'll steal minutes from Hepa and Cunningham.  Hepa has been disappointing.  Cunningham looked lost.

Scoring more than 0 times is really, really hard. 

Maybe you should check in on South Austn's mom.  That should end your dry spell.

This is the kind of player who has lackluster seasons his first year or two on campus and then is suddenly an All American.  Hopefully he stays here all 4 years.

I thought this thread was him announcing he going into the portal due to his lack of consistent PT, even though he plays behind 3 bricklayers.

He shouldn't be taking threes (4-21 on the season), but man this kid looks like he has the body and skill set to become a really good player. Whoever replaces Shaka will have a gem on his hands.

He's an example of a player who Shaka misuses when it comes to developing the player, his roster, and team cohesion for the long term. Shit you could probably say the same for players like James Banks, Hepa, and even Liddell. You can discipline them by being restrictive with minutes and frequently taking them out to immediately teach them when they make mistakes, but you should never go multiple games or half the season without them getting in game reps to improve. Shoot,  even Will Baker could fall into this category, but Shaka deploys him in the most ineffective, nonoptimal manner that it probably wouldn't do him much more good if he got more game reps in this ridiculously stupid system. 

Is there any doubt that Williams would turn into a Jarrett Culver level player under a coach like Beard? It's so fucking obvious that it's almost laughable that it took multiple injuries to get him extended minutes.
