    Saw someone compare him to Orlando Pace yesterday. Good God.

    This kid will need a few years to hopefully develop under Coach Mick and Coach Stud. But the things you can't teach are there...namely the athleticism at that size. Knee bend is okay. Flexibility will need improvement. Will need a ton of time working on technique. Motor seems to not be an issue. Plays with a little nasty. Good pickup based on long-term potential.

    Guess I should have gone to this game. Went last Friday and saw him against Cathedral top prospect Armaan Franklin. Sidelined with foul trouble most of it.

    He’s definitely a project on the footspeed/athletic side but there is a LOT to work with (no pun). The fact that kid can get up and slam 1 hand on people amazes me. Had the the game winning dunk.

    Plenty to work with. Grew up in the neighborhood across from Ben Davis. Excited to see a local kid in S&G.

    The Pace comparison might be a bit hyperbolic, but Dawand can easily end up being the steal of the class. As mentioned, his athleticism for his size is phenomenal. The key will be coaching--if he gets top-notch coaching then look out. I would not be stunned to see him end up as an All-American at one of the tackle positions.

    Impressed with how well he catches the ball. Nice, soft hands. Moves very well for a kid his size. Line him up tackle eligible and let him run some routes!

    40 pts is no joke no matter who you are. A redshirt year under Coach Mick should pay off nicely.

    Well, I certainly wouldn't 'stand tall' in the paint if he was driving on me...….Agree, put him in the weight room and training table, and have Stud's assistant (he's gonna have his hands full finding a good/great 5), and get some technique down. Then Mickey will get the guy some 'good weight' and make him as flexible as a Cirque du Soleil acrobat. THEN he can be a road grader....go Bucks! You've got the clay, build with it. Remember, the 2021+ kids are watching to see how well the coaches develop the kids on the roster now. did I say, GO BUCKS!

    Hell of an athlete. Those soft, soft hands look like they belong on a tight end. Tackle eligible, anyone?

    I think it's great that he can dunk and all.....but to be honest, @ 6'7"- 6'8", you literally need a 10-12" vertical jump to dunk a basketball. just sayin'. nice 40 ball though. Looking forward to his development in S&G.
