Austin is a long, lean player with great potential. He's agile, skilled and can shoot it. He blocks shots and can jump out of the gym. (Pretty good genes as his dad, Charles was the Olympic Gold Medalist in the high jump. As he gains strength, learns to put the ball on the floor a little better and puts on some beef then Austin will easily be a mid major, and likely high major recruit.-Coach Max Ivany
