It was the right decision.

    I think he will get drafted at some point.7 footers are at a premium in the NBA. Scouts probably see him as a Dirk Novinsky type.

    Many including me said he wasn't tough enough to hang with the big boys at UNM. Needless to say he proved us all wrong. I wouldn't be surprised to see him start in the NBA some day.
