Yeah I think a good shot. Was headed to prep but true late bloomer. Think he wants to RS instead of prep School.


We’ve been on radar but just offered.

Maybe a project but looks like he already has some capable footwork which is more than I can say about several stiffs we have brought in over the years.

He either is a project or not a project and if by chance that is the reality then not shying away from it is anything but dubious.

Amen.

Why is it such a stretch to call him a project? Besides OU his best offer is ITT Tech.

Do OU's coaches have the ability to go up against any other Power 5 team for a recruit and win nowadays?

You have to go all the way back to ... last year for the last examples of that happening.

Two cycles. In the 2020 cycle OU had one signee and he didn't have anything close to a P5 offer. The Harmon/Iwuokor/Hill class... They did have some P5s i'll grant you.

Just frustrating watching a program like Texas Tech clean up with like 4 guys in the Top 100, and OU can't seem to sniff any of those guys. If Kruger and co come back and sign some guys like that for 2021, i'll be the first to come back here an eat some happy crow.

Well, 2021 cycle obviously isn't close to over. And 2020 isn't either, if we get this kid.

You are correct about 2021, and hopefully I will have to eat crow. If we get the 2020 kid, great! Have ITT Tech, IUPUI, SIUE, and Western Illinois joined P5 conferences? I must have missed it.

Maybe because the person who called him not just a project, but a "big time project" (and I'm confident he didn't mean "big time" as a positive) has -- and I'm guessing here, he'll correct me if I'm wrong -- not seen him play liive and has viewed no more video of him in action than any of us have (which is to say, very little).

And where in the world are you getting the idea that only the likes of ITT Tech are interested in the guy? The Rivals article cited in the story linked to in the original post describes Lieb as "the trendiest prospect in the sport right now and for good reason" and, after praising his skills effusively, says that among the teams expressing interest in Lieb are Tulsa, Indiana, Iowa, Oklahoma, Penn State, Providence, and Seton Hall.

I didn't see that. If true, makes me feel a little better.

Yep, and the other thing I’d say is that sometimes people get too hung up on who else has offered kids. Take a look at who had offered Mason and Graham before KU. Yes, they ended up with decent ratings after KU offered, but occasionally, a coach just sees something that others have overlooked. Wichita State isn’t a P5 but they have had a good amount of success with kids who were otherwise lightly recruited. And trust me, complimenting WSU in any way pains me. 😊

I agree and I am not overlooking finding diamonds in the rough or player development in any way. It just seems like our ratio isn't great lately. Other good offers means they obviously have been scouted by good teams and are coveted by them. It would be nice to win some of those battles again.

I think his footwork is noticeably good compared too many tall kid videos we see which seem to be only dunks and blocks. Unlike many here I'm not overly concerned with spots 12 and 13. That is not to say I'm close to pleased with production from our 5/center position for many years. Project kids that don't pan out are not a legitimate excuse for not having quality starters including centers.

Wonder what his percentage is beyond the arc. Looks like he has good touch on his shots, especially for someone that big. He is more offensively than just a dunker.

Also moves well for someone that size. Don't see him as a project. Handles himself well in traffic. Would expect him to get early playing time, particularly as a redshirt frosh.

Agreed. He’s definitely more than a dunker offensively. He has excellent footwork for his size and he finishes equally well with both hands. I was especially impressed with his little duck under move in close where he uses his length to get an easy layup against a defender. The kid has skills.

I like his shot from deep as well. Reminds me a little of Dirk Nowitzki [7 footer shooting from deep, not that he is even close to the real deal right now]. I also shudder at the thought of a guy his size playing on the perimeter. Stay inside, young man. Please!

His senior year, he shot 25% from deep--good enough to justify him putting one up from behind the line every now and then, when he's feeling it, just to keep defenders honest.
