One of our most faithful readers (and a certified basketball junkie who can't get enough prep and college hoops) attended the Jordan Classic this past weekend at MSG.
Thankfully he was kind enough to share his thoughts on incoming PF Patrick Hazel......many thanks!:
(Patrick Hazel) Sets picks, scores off low post feeds, totally an under the basket offense with good hands. Decent FT form, good on the ball defender.Here's a nice blurb from the Sunday New York Post about Hazel.
He had 8 points, on 3 for 5 shooting and 2 of 3 FTs, 3 fouls in under 20 minutes. He was the backup center.
Good athlete, at 6'7, 220 lbs can bang inside and defend. Enthusiastic and good teammate as he passes to the open man. Weight-wise, Hazel is slightly smaller than Dwight Burke, but is quicker/more athletic.
Past MU players he most reminds me of : Jon Harris or Terry Sanders"
Tom Konchalski (said) .... "He has a great work ethic and desire," the longtime recruiting expert said. "That's why he's going to the Big East."
