I think he's smaller than Malone, more like a shorter Stoudamire I
Hard to tell where he goes - seems to be rated below the main
group of high schoolers: Howard - Smith - Livingston - Telfair -

the 350-pound guy - Wright. So, he might very well be there for the
Dallas or Detroit pick. Depends greatly on workouts and tape measures.
