Rabby hinting at Sterling Manley fwiw

Damaged goods and missed a lot of playing time.  December '20 story almost sounds like he'd worn out his welcome at UNC.

Who is Sterling Manley??

originally a 3 star big that went to UNC. was developing but got injured and missed 19-20 season.

not completely sure of his story, but surprised at his low initial ranking since he went to UNC. 

likely surrounded by a lot of competition, and just missed his shot after getting injured.

6’11” kid from UNC who lost basically 2 years to knee issues. Was a back end of the rotation guy as a Fr and nothing since. From the same part of Ohio as Hunter and had an offer from Miller. Great body, long and stout. Strictly a low post hammer offensively.  Was a pretty good mover and pretty quick off his feet before the knee stuff. Looked like he could be a pretty good defender. If his knee checks out, he’d have a chance to be a rebounder/rim protector/finisher in reserve. That’s a big if.

Yes and he has his own thread dating back to 2016-2017.  He suffered a compound fracture of his leg in a high school game so he really has a history of injuries. 

Sounds like a the kind of flyer you can take with your 13th scholarship

Looks like he was pretty decent year 1 (frosh expectations anyway), but then faded.

If we are just looking for a big to spell TJD at the 5 until Duncomb matures, then he doesn't look like a bad use of a 13th schollie for one year.

Yeah, maybe just some depth.  We have a pretty solid roster for the majority of our minutes, it may be getting more difficult to get one of the guys higher on the wishlist because of playing time concerns.  You know that TJD is penciled in for sure at one of the bigs.
