I agree. Look forward to seeing him next season. He seems to be coming into his own. We need a big time leader on D. We had some great players on D but who was the Boulware or Skalski for this defense. Not being critical but just did not see anyone step into that role.
All had a great year but KJ gave 110% from the day he stepped on campus. I am so proud of him. Remember, he told Dabo he thought he should redshirt... how many kids you Ever hear of that happening. Gosh I pray he gets drafted 3 or 4th round. Somebody will get a deal. What a guy.
I’ve put this on here several times but just in case anyone hasn’t seen KJ’s commitment video and read the story about his commitment, here it is again. I read another article that said Coach Murph had received a national honor the same day that KJ was planning to make his announcement. He had set his commitment date quite some time in advance but no one knew about Coach Murphy’s award until that day. Since it was now “Coach Murphy’s Day” he did this. He couldn’t tell Coach Murph where he was going ahead of time because he said he might blurt it out so he whispered it into his ear at the right time. Remember he was only 17 when he did this. Knew he was going to be special from the first time I saw this. Thanks for the memories, KJ and hope you make a few more in Miami.
