They don't have a scholarship for AJ Plitzuweit unless someone else gives up his.Welcome to Minnesota! He can get minutes if he can be brought up a solid 40% 3 point shooter from 25%, rebounds and helps with rim protection. He is coming in at a position of strength for us, but injuries happen and there is never too much B1G quality depth. We had at least 4 40% 3 point shooters before him. Guard and wing play are strengths. A total reversal from last year. Never ever too many good shooter. Now get that defense rocking!
I like this pick up. Can we still fit AJ? We now are strong at all positions but the 5. Protect Payne.
Get that paperwork done and get him into practice. I see he is used to playing in front of Williams Arena size crowds. Minnesota fans suck.
The wing is a position of strength as is. He should be expected to make us stronger.Surprising and hopeful addition. His shot is slow but looks good. If he shoots 25% from 3 it's probably because he rushes his misses. He's 6-8 and a wing and he is going to be a Gopher.
Surprising and hopeful....we added somebody.
Can't help but be more optimistic with his addition.....if he can play meaningful minutes this could be a difference maker.
Thank you Ben!
