Coen Carr is an absolute freak. The Michigan State basketball freshman is one of the most anticipated incoming freshmen in recent memory and his athleticism rivals that of Jason Richardson and Shannon Brown.
Fans in East Lansing will be flocking to the Breslin Center for every home game this year in hopes of getting a glimpse of the freakish athleticism in live action.
Before the season begins, however, Moneyball is the best opportunity for fans to get an idea of what to expect from the freaky freshman this year, at least athletically. That tipped off on Thursday night as the rest of the freshmen were also featured.
Carr put up some impressive numbers during his first-ever Moneyball game, going for 26 points and 10 rebounds, but it was his dunk reel that caught everyone’s attention.
Here’s a full minute of Carr dunk highlights:
He brought the excitement on Thursday night.
Michigan State basketball’s freshman class impressed
Although I don’t have numbers from Gehrig Normand’s first public action, the freshman class really dominated on Thursday night.
Those are some ridiculous numbers.
Xavier Booker finished with 35 points and 20 rebounds, Jeremy Fears had 37 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists, and, as mentioned before, Carr had 26 points and 10 boards. This freshman class is going to be something special.
There were some solid Normand highlights as well. He was showing off some of his spot-up moves. He created for himself a bit and he looks like a guy who could provide much-needed depth.
Of course, Moneyball can’t be taken too seriously as defense is often optional, but it’s good to see that confidence isn’t lacking with this freshman class.
