His high school coach, Jeff McCullough, is plenty familiar with the Sooners, especially Clark. He coached Clark in high school and coached in Norman before taking the job in Allen, Texas.
“I would put him in a similar athletic category as Cameron Clark with a little more size and about a seven-foot wingspan,” McCullough said in a release. “He really blossomed late last season and in the spring and summer.”
McNeace has been a quick developer, playing really only two years of basketball after growing nearly a foot since his freshman year.
“He's still learning the game and making some changes on how he approaches it mentally and with some basketball I.Q. things,” McCullough said.
While Lattin's game has a lot of similarities with current Sooners' forward D.J. Bennett, Kruger sees plenty of room for enhancement.
“Because of his attitude and work ethic, he's got a tremendous upside in terms of where he's going to go as a player,” Kruger said. “Right now, he's thought of more of a shot-blocker and a defensive guys, but I think he has a ton of potential offensively.”
