Correct. A formality. But it still has to be grant.

that is 100% unnecessary and unwarranted. this is an excellent pickup. He's an excellent student and team mate with speed and a nice shooting touch. And he's loooong. Plus his coach says he's a gym rat.

I think it's exciting. It's gonna be so much fun next year!

That was the first thing that popped into my head as well. He's apparently a pretty sharp kid. good for us!!

yeah. and it certainly helps to keep opening up foreign lands for potential future recruits. Steven Adams is the youngest of what - 13 kids? They've got some bigguns down there.

The Daytona State web site shows he’s averaging 5.6 points and 4.9 Rebs per game, coming off of the bench and playing around 16 mpg overall, 11 mpg in conference. I don’t have a clue if an injury has been a factor in his poor performance, but he has played in 19 games this season, which seems to suggest he may not be as good as some of us thought. Even more troubling, at least to me, he is shooting an unimpressive 44% (11 of 25) from the free throw line. His average from three in a limited sampling is even worse (20%).

I was highly critical of Kur Kauth when he was in juco, but I changed my mind about him after he arrived on campus at OU. In other words, I could be wrong about Merritt too.

My thoughts exactly. Merritt has 3 years to play here at OU. So plenty of time to develop.
