"He can fill it up from the outside. And what I say next, don't take lightly. The closest thing I've seen to him in terms of shooting the basketball is that NBA kid, Stephen Curry. Frank had the green light here to do what he can do. Two steps across the half-court circle, if he feels it, it can drop. I've seen it multiple times. 'No, no, that's too far.' Then nothing but net. His last competitive game was the senior showcase in the state about a month ago and the first four shots of the game were from well beyond the arc and were nothing but net. He walked away with the MVP award.

"Off the court, he's a guy who will do what he's supposed to do. He'll go to class, he's very humble. He's a kid who has goals set for himself and he's going to try to reach them. He's a very goal-oriented kid. OU got itself a player, and a good person, too."
