He is big, has a mean streak and likes to drink.
I watched him in the Capitol City League this summer and came away really disappointed. Not in his ability but in his attitude. He complained about every call the refs made, never participated in team huddles and got into it with Palo for no reason other than Palo was playing hard. I actually hope he doesn't see the court until his attitude has changed.
I was never impressed with him last year. Looked too scared (as anyone would be in the Big XII as a freshman), however he may have gotten better over the summer. I went to a practice once last year and was impressed with Booker's intensity. Was very slow and wasn't conditioned well, but he at least didn't look scared like Railey did most of the year last year.
And yes I miss Godfrey. Too bad he was a ******* and screwed up a scholarship and chance to maybe move onto the next level.
P.S.- Anyone know if signed with another school?? Godfrey that is.
JRailz is a liability when he's on the court. He's slow and out of position at all times. He is not a good defender at all. I hope I'm wrong but my expectations are 0 points 0 rebounds and 5 fouls, so theres room to surprise.
Players never improve.
The people who are so down on JR must not have watched much college basketball over the years. Freshman Centers almost always suck. Most big men don't get good until their Junior years, when they have time to grow into their body and hit the weights. He wasn't bad for a freshman last year, give him some time and he could be good down low for us, probably not till his 3rd or 4th year. He could really use a redshirt year.
