Can I just say that I think Alex Len could be really good? It's the way he moves. Maryland's 7-footer seems to possess coordination and timing, and is not lumbering.
But let's not get ahead of ourselves. Len has yet to be approved to play by an NCAA clearinghouse, and is no longer permitted to practice with the team. He is young and would still need lots of work in practices and games.
You can check him out on this video from the Oct. 14 Maryland Madness scrimmage. Take a look also at freshman Nick Faust's between-the-legs, off-the-backboard jam that served as his introduction to Comcast Center fans. I was standing next to coach Mark Turgeon when he did it. Turgeon seemed impressed. "Whoa," the coach said.
