  1. Yeah this kids got so much potential, it’s scary honestly. Hoping he gets more game time next season or gets loaned out if not, but this kid deserves to start games. The sky is the limit.

  2. This kid’s composure and anticipation is what impresses me the most. I agree with the potential. With proper guidance, I see him as far as even challenging for the BallonDor in the future.
