More time to develop and he has alot more athletism, which we desperately need.
If he was as athletic as some believe I think he would be playing this year. I watched him a couple times last year and although I'm excited to get him on the court I don't think he'll have a great immediate impact because of his offensive struggles.
I'm thinking JVD will play quite a bit next year. I've actually been impressed with him this year. Even though he does get beat at times on defense (who doesn't?) he makes up for it with his ability to block shots.
Having seen Colvin play in HS and AAU, he may not really be ready to play the PG right away, as he's always been more of a combo guard and played off the ball in HS. This is really the first year in HS he's been playing the point, and even now he spends some time on the wing while Ahmad Starks(Oregon State commit) plays the point. For his previous years at Whitney Young AJ Rompza(UCF freshman) ran the team and the offense. Colvin played on the wing with Anthony Johnson(Purdue commit) and Marcus Jordan(MJ's son). He's just now beginning his transition to a point guard.
Not saying he can't become a starting PG at some point, but he's not really a true PG and hasn't been playing the position long enough to start at it right away. He'll get playing time, but it probably won't be at the point in the beginning.
Tyrone Slaughter really seems to have no clue. From watching Whitney Young play several times, Ahmad Starks is terrible, and Marcus Jordan isn't much better. He's strong and athletic, but not a good defender, ball handler, or shooter. He takes bad shots, and a lot of other things too. I don't understand why Sam Thompson doesnt' play 20 minutes a game, and Marcus Jordan doesn't sit more.
