We all noticed that Texas Tech plays defense alot like we do. But they are more physically gifted and much longer than we are.  They could overplay and rely on their 6-11 jumping jack shot blocker to seal the lane.  He wasnt there to score, but to rebound and block shots.

What I'm reading in the comments and what I'm seeing in the video doesn't match-up. He doesn't appear to be above the rim player but more of a project.

Could it be possible that an unranked Kouma has a contingent scholarship based on January truly not making it? It is interesting that an unranked, under recruited player has not signed at the earliest possible time to be able to attend the University. Maybe there is a slight hope still that January makes it?

Nevermind it seems other than offer post on twitter, us, depaul and others, commitment posts have been removed....seems that ship has definately passed. Unfortunate to say the least.

It's been reported by many Illini sites that January is definitely not coming.  It's sad, the kid was a beast.  I hope he lands somewhere - his path to playing college ball has been very odd.

What's the deal with him?  I heard he wasn't going to qualify? 
Would have been nice to have both he and Kofi...
I'm not too excited about this guy...but I wasn't excited about Giorgi either...I have a hard time believing we strike gold twice though.

Yes, that's what I've heard - he couldn't qualify.
