Like the size, but he does need work. Footwork for one and he HAS to learn to go left hand when he is on that side of the rim. At the 1:50 mark is a perfect example of what will happen at the next level when he tries to go up with his right hand on the left side of the glass . These things can be worked out. Size cannot be coached. Hops appear below average but Glass could turn this kid into a beast.
Glass is football. Jake Manzelmann is the strength and conditioning coach for basketball.

From Mark Cooper...

A successful recruiting weekend for Oklahoma State ended with the addition of a much-needed post player.

Kentrevious Jones, a 6-foot-10, 290-pound center who spent this past year at Quality Education Academy in North Carolina, has committed to the Cowboys.

Jones visited Stillwater this weekend and signed a letter of intent, becoming the third official member of OSU's 2018 class.

The quote from his high school coach says he has great footwork.

Just my opinion, but would disagree. Several of the clips show him traveling with multiple hop steps, turns into the defender, once resulting in a blocked shot, instead of a reverse pivot to make space. Not harping on the kid, he looks like he has a ton of potential, but he needs work. His coach is not going to talk bad about him.

He needs some work BUT just like you can't coach up speed, you can't coach up size. He has the height and bulk we need in the middle, and he looks like he has a lot of potential if they can help him with his footwork.

A great get. Kind of shaped like Country and he turned out pretty good. I'm still excited about next year despite all the guys we lost. MB is the real deal and really seems to have embraced the Cowboy Culture. Maybe the bright lights of NY aren't the draw we feared they might be for him.
