Used to know him back in his basketball days. Good kid, hard worker and great athlete.

Personally i think he made the right call choosing footy, especially if he likes it the most. A bit undersized for the NBA imo, i think he could have turned into a Nick Kay type and had a very good career in the NBL or europe, but could be a star in footy. Will probably earn more in footy too and be more high profile and well known.

Yes, he would have been a 6'7 nbl pf at best.

With footy, he could be one of the best ruckman in years to come.

Very basketball-heavy draft. Jackson the best baller of the lot, but Rowell and Anderson were part of a Hawthorn Magic team that won u14 Club Champs. Basketball: the place to go to get good at footy?

I saw an interview of Erin Phillips and reading between the lines it sounded like she used to be pretty good at basketball
