If true very disappointing as we had been told earlier he had lost 12 pounds and was working hard at getting into an improved shape. I for one was counting on Trimble to be a good reserve this season. If correct he should not be disappointed when Williams grabs his minutes.


Williams will get his minutes regardless but it begs the question "who is working with him" to get him into top playing shape?

Where is Jack LaLanne when you need him?

Looks leaner to me. As I said I hope he is a 4 year player.

If he comes ready to play and is able to hold off Williams, he'll get his minutes this season. Might even be in the front court in some wacky lineups.

But if not, hopefully he has patience, because it might not be until his senior year that he gets enough minutes to make him happy. Honestly, a redshirt year between junior and senior year might even be better for his prospects, but most kids wouldn't want that.

If Heron is eligible he isn’t as important to the team this year. If not ,he could be a wild card. Looked good in the video. It I was nice to see him mix his outside shots up w inside shots. I would have liked to see that in Clark’s video.Hoping for a nice jump from fr to so year.

Despite earlier misguided post, I'd agree he looks much fitter.

I know the staff loves this kid, so would be surprised if he doesn't see daylight and gets a shot to prove that he deserves more.

He will never be skinny he looks like a naturally thick guy, he just needs to tone up which it looks like he's doing. Good for him, he needs to commit to playing a role for us this year. He has the build to be a plus defender and thats where he could really carve out a nice role for himself this year. He can be the 3 and D guy for us this year if he can defend and catch & shoot. I dont think GW's strength is outside shooting so I think Trimble will be ahead of him for that reason especially with Heron. If Heron is eligible GW is the one I would recommend for a redshirt so he can be ready for a big role after we lose a bunch of our backcourt in 19-20. He has a higher ceiling than Trimble but with MH and Simon he is not as good a fit for this year.

ATTENTION:

Major updates were made to the servers / software hosting redmen.com. There was also one significant change to the website this week to address keeping up with current standards and practices.

It has now become standard practice for all websites to be served as https (as opposed to the original http).


A couple of years ago I enabled https on the site as optional but as of today, the site is forcing https. Any link coming into the site should be automatically converted on the fly and you should not have to do anything on your end.
