Nice timing on posting this. I am driving down tonight to see Mohammed play against, swear to God, Halfway HS. Halfway is 15-3, so hopefully they provide the kid a little competition.

Just got back from watching Mohammed  and Greenwood beat Halfway HS 72-63. Preface this by saying that Halfway Is a dime a dozen small school team and Greenwood without Mohammed is godawful.
Played 29 mins. 43 pts 28 rebs(not a mistype) 3 assists 2 blocks 2 steals 1TO. Shot 16-25 from the field, 4-8 from 3, and 7-10 from the line. The counting stats are pretty immaterial. He could have scored as many as he wanted, despite being constantly doubled. 
Mohammed is a full 6’5”. Probably 190-195. Great length, great body. Physically, he looks a lot like Musa Jallow. His older brother who plays at Missouri St was at the game and he’s built like a tight end. So I imagine he fills out to every bit of 220. Elite athlete. Can really run, really jump and has incredible body control for such a young player. Made a play I can hardly believe I saw.  Was going up for a left handed dunk off a drive. A Halfway kid blatantly pushes him as he leaves the ground. Incredibly cheap and dangerous play. As he is in the air he manages to switch the ball from his left hand to his right and as he’s flying out of bounds manages to reach back from behind the backboard and kiss it off glass for an and 1. Then, he just gets up, goes to the line and buries the FT. Had to pick up my jaw at the entire sequence.
Great looking jumper. Took a couple of bad 3’s, but was 4-5 on the ones he shot in rhythm. Shot well off both the catch and dribble. Handle is good but a little loose. Better defenders could have gotten into his dribble a few times. Showed the ability to get downhill and finished  around the rim with either hand. With the exception of a couple of poor shots, the kid really played within the flow of the game. Involved his teammates as much as he could given their lack of quality and never seemed frustrated by them. Pretty impressive. The 28 boards wasn’t solely superior athleticism. He repeatedly showed a great instinct  for the angle of the carom. His defense was fine, but he backed away from some chances to make plays. It’s clear he’s been told not to foul.  Really liked his demeanor. Was highly engaged and played hard throughout. It would have been easy for him not to. 
I love this kid. Love him. He is Victor Oladipo. Maybe not quite as demonstrative, but he’s a super athlete, he’s skilled for a Soph, and he competed hard against guys he didn’t need to. That is a winning player. Seriously, he has Vic written all over him. 
Spoke to a player’s parent who seemed to know him pretty well. I asked if he was going to play for MoKan or Bradley Beal this summer. He told me that he’s going to play up for Boo Williams U17. Really looking forward to seeing him against real competition.
Here’s the deal. If Mohammed is on campus Feb 10, he needs to leave with an offer. I don’t want to hear about Archie doing Archie things and following him and watching him and finally offering a year and a half from now. You offer him and you spend the next 18 months making it happen. This kid will be able to go anywhere. You put Mohammed and Lander with a Senior Rob and you have a backcourt that can win a NC. 
 
 
Great job on the scouting!

I’d take a VO type player anytime. Good info.

Brother-in-law is at the Blackhawk Christian-Snider game tonight watching Caleb Furst and says that he is better than TJD is right now and we go to A LOT of CG games. Thinks he'll be a top 10 player by senior year and is just a monster. Imagine he'll have his pick of any school. Hope Arch locks him down ASAP!

Furst had a really strong game tonight, but I've watched both play numerous games and IMO TJD is the superior player.  Furst can get there, but I think TJD has a better overall game and is a more versatile player.

I’ve been told by someone who is connected to his school that he’s really only considering three schools right now out of his current offers.
