With the additions of Borja and Finn Fluete, Danny has successfully brought in two offensively skilled 4's who are 6'7"+. MSU has needed a threat at the 4 position dating back to Huse's tenure. I told ya'll Danny is an experienced recruiter from his time on the West coast and its showing.

Barcelona is a very good program. He'll come in well coached.

Really cool pickup. Hope he works out!

All of 6'8, incredible ball-handler for his size (pushes the ball up on turnovers), good with either hand when finishing at the rim, + shooter (can stretch the floor by shooting the 3), + effort. This is huge.

As long as we don't lose him to obscure NCAA rule that suddenly applies to good big players committing to MSU.

Kid is skilled! And he's only 18? How nice would it be to have him for 4 years!

If we are recruiting Barcelona we should've gone after Messi

Too short for D1 and no evidence he can do anything with his hands.

Too short for D-1!? Have you ever seen a Big Sky basketball game! Now I understand if you said he was too short for ACC or SEC, but Montana State plays in a conference that is considered a low Major D-1. I would guess to say the avg 4 man height in the Big Sky was 6-7 or smaller. League Champion got it done with a 6-7 center and 6-6 4-man. Give the kid a break!

Easy there mslacat...I think frank was making a sarcastic comment about the post above his about Lionel Messi-who is a slightly more famous athlete under the FC Barcelona brand. =D^

I thought the reference to Messi and no evidence he could do anything with his hands was quite clever. lol

My apology to "mslacat" (I appreciate and value your input here) and anyone who didn't follow what I said due to my failure to make a better connective. I was indeed referring to Messi and am excited to see Borja. Thanks to those who clarified my intentions. I believe we are entering an exciting new phase.

No need to apologize, I think I over reacted and my friend BelgradeCat slapped me up the head to point that out
