One observer's early scouting report from a peek at basketball practice is that freshman guard Dundrecous Nelson and freshman center Demarco Cox will be "great." No word on exactly when they will arrive at great but sounds like they could make a quick impact.
This is an important year for Nelson. It could be his show next year as life after Chris Warren begins.
Among the returnees Zach Graham and Terrance Henry had really good fall work.
Indiana transfer Nick Williams has not disappointed. He sat out his transfer year last year, so from a practice standpoint the staff had an idea what they would see in Williams. No doubt his intensity level is up a bit since he can play this season.
Newcomers Steadman Short, Isaiah Massey and Donald Williams have gotten off to good starts and should all pick up key minutes early.
