I'm interested to see what his real height/weight/wingspan is. I've seen anywhere from 6'8 210 to 6'10 240. If it's the latter I'd love to pair him with Sully in the front court.
Otherwise, he's great. He's been getting more explosive and athletic with each growth spurt, has a good feel for the game, ridiculous length and is a monster in the paint. Great rebounder and defender, protects the paint. Offensively you can tell he was groomed as an SF/PF with his handles and jump shot, but he'll be a C due to his growth.
He's got a nice frame and has been growing for a while now, which helps his upside. Easy to forget these kids are only 19 and still growing.
On the negative, he doesn't have a real post game like Sully. He might not enter the draft and go too high for us next year. I'd be disappointed if we didn't grab him, he could be an impact player immediately.
Noah is only 18. He reclassified. His size is legit. Put on a lot of muscle and grew 3 inches. I have watched him play a lot, both at New Hampton and with his AAU team Mass Rivals.
The above poster is correct, Crean has just stuck him in the paint, even though he is more of a wing player. Other problem at Indiana is Yogi Ferrell. Great player, but definitely a shoot first PG. Noah played with PG's Travis Jorgensen and Olivier Hanlan from BC at the New Hampton School. Hanlan is a first rounder who was a better PG distributor for Noah.
Played against awesome competition in HS and AAU. As you probably know, New Hampton, Tilton and Brewster are within a 20 mile radius. Brewster and Tilton where ranked #1 and #3 in the country and New Hampton #8. 10-12 NBA first round picks coming from those three schools during the time Noah was at New Hampton. Every night was like a junior NBA game.
He has made a great adjustment considing his age and playing out of position. Could easily be a 20/10 guy this year, if they got him the ball like last night. Ultimately I think, playing mainly the 5 at Indiana, will be better for his long term development. Although he certainly is not allowed to showcase what he can do. I am sure scouts know that and all about his open court skills, as Noah has been a top national prospect since 15 or 16 years old. Really hard worker.
