"He's a great leader. He's probably one of the best leaders I've ever coached and he's definitely come a long way from a quiet unassuming freshman to a great vocal leader. He adds a component to this team that a lot of mid-majors don't have as far as being able to score and dominate down below." -Kevin Nickelberry
