I've never seen Vette play, but I did go to the same high school as Barz so I saw him play a lot. If you are looking for a physical player, Barz is NOT it. He has nice moves and a good shot, but is not physical at all. I would guess Barz is more skilled offensively than Vette, but Vette is a better rebounder and probably a better scorer around the basket.
Exactly. It seems we second guess our own guys alot. We need to have more confidence in out players and staff. I want to see it borderline cocky like the husker and hawk fans. I want us to say we are awesome and we will be awesome from here on out.
I know a bit about Barz and he is tall but very thin and not a physical player. You can play at a high level in high school with these traits, but unfortunately he would probably get eaten in the Big 12. Vette's size and level of physical play alone makes him a better bet to succeed on the college level.
I would be willing to bet that McDermott would be really happy to have Barz, since he did commit to him last year. I'd also be willing to bet McDermott took the high road and didn't try to re-recruit him, in deference to his former school.
