This one is ours....Can't see this kid wanting to leave Omaha for NU

 

This is a bit contradicting

 

 

How so? Creighton is in Omaha you do know that right? Kid looks to be a stretch 4 and Creighton has a successful history of having those. Kids is suited for the let it fly mentality #CU

A good coaching buddy of mine says this kid is going to blow up with offers. He even said he would not be shocked if he gets a KU or UK offer. I was surprised to hear him say that but who knows!

Attended the NebraskaHSSports Top 50 Event. Checked in at just over 6-7 with a 7' 1" wing span and has a standing reach of 8' 10.5. Registered at 26 inch vertical.

 

Supposedly hasn't thought a whole lot about recruiting so far.

He's going to have to blow up super-huge to get one of those offers.

What are your thoughts on Chang as a recruit now that this season is pretty much over?

 

I saw him play once in Grand Island a week or two ago.

 

I'm having the same feelings as when I saw Arop play. They are both good players. But, I'm having a hard time picturing their skills transitioning to a Big Ten team well. But, I can't put my finger on why. Maybe it's their lack of bulk (size)???

Thoughts?

I've not seen him play, but he is similar in size to Roby. Arop was shorter. If he is long and athletic, he can make up for bulk as he would be playing small forward.

Comparing the info in the OP of this thread for Chang and Roby's info on Huskermax, Roby is 34 lbs heavier and an inch taller.

 

Seeing Chang in person, that does not surprise me.

 

Now...take 34lbs off of Roby and you get an idea where I'm coming from.

Roby was 6'8" 185 lbs as a HS Sr., Chang is 6'7" 180. In fact, I seen an article that him listed as 6'9". I'd say that pretty close.

He will probably be a 3 at the next level. He's going to need at least a year in the weight room to be effective against Big Ten teams, though.

I would take this kid in a heartbeat. Good/great athleticism and can switch screens on everyone from a 2-5 on D. Plus a local kid that will strengthen ties in the Omaha area. This is the kind of kid that Creighton has gotten and turned into a productive player for a long time. Need to lock him up.

Couldn't agree more. Would hate to miss out on him and have him playing for them against us in a couple years.

This is almost the most important aspect of his recruitment. Nebraska needs to be more active in Omaha.

Also- one more thing to add:

 

I'm all for this team adding length. This kid is a legit 6'7 with a 7'1 wingspan- are you kidding me?! I love Fuller's hustle and heart he brings but if you're going to give a guy like Fuller a scholarship I can't see how you ignore this home grown product. It can't be valued enough that his length allows him to switch all ball screens, makes it harder to run your stuff on offense. I don't know that he is really a proven, dynamic scorer and I would like to add another shooter in this class that can space the floor but if we were to add Chang all of a sudden you're looking at a really big, long team at almost every position (minus Watson).

 

Things we really need to add in the next two recruiting cycles:

 

1. Shooting

2. Size/Length

3. Additional ball handler

Saw flashes of ability in the state championship game. Ankle didn't look good though. At some point you have to say either play through it or sit down. His running looked absolutely horrific. He still made plays, but it did not look like he should have been out on the floor.

If anyone wanted to see how much BB talent is in NE, all they had to do is watch the state tournament. It was pathetic. Even my wife was laughing. Chang was definitely the best player, even with a bad ankle.

I would tend to disagree with this. The talent level for basketball, while still behind other states, has continued to grow for a few years now. AAU programs in this state continue to compete at a high level within the midwest. If Nebraska took the best 10-12 players from the state and put them all on one team (like some national programs do) i think people would be surprised at how competitive they would be.

 

Just in the class A title game alone there were 2 D-1 basketball players (Strom and Akinwole) and a D-1 football player (McCallum) and that's not even counting Ed. He will be the best of the bunch with the skill set he has.

I would agree with your disagreement with SouthLincoln Husker.

 

The talent on display in the championships was not pathetic and laughable as he and his wife obviously think. There were some pretty damn good athletes playing. Your list didn't even include Div 1 football players like Allen and Vedral.

I would not call UNO & UC Davis as quality D1 teams. We have athletes, but the quality of D1 talent is slim. Plus when you play against week talent you look better then you are. No other player in the state tournament was on the same level as Chang.

Nowhere did either one of us call them quality programs. The fact is the kids were good enough to be recruited by D1 schools. Doesn't matter how good or bad they are. Yes UNO is an in state school and has always recruited the region but for UC Davis to come in and think a Nebraska kid is good enough to play for them says a lot about the exposure the kids are getting in this state.

 

With Ed if things develop the way they potentially could he's going to have a long list of offers to choose from with many of them being very solid basketball options. Most importantly he won't have to worry about paying a dime for school. Which is the end all be all for most kids.

My point is that there is not 10-12 D1 players and since this is a football state, there probably will never be. AAU basketball in Nebraska is a joke that is why player go to Iowa
