In fairness during his recruitment we told him we envisioned him


As a stretch 4. Just because someone is a stretch 4 doesn't mean they will not also have some back to the basket skills. Frank the Tank obviously had both. I don't think he will ever be a banger inside and our coaches told him as much, which was a major selling point. From the tape I watched, I saw mostly three point jumpers and dunks in transition/putbacks. Does he have a back to the basket game (or is he working on one)? Hard to say. I don't doubt he can develop the moves, but he will need to develop the strength to establish and hold position which might take longer.
