That sizzling sound is the sound of HCBS lighting a fire under somebody's butt.
I noted in the article that HCBS expects Perry to perform at All American levels, and doesn't seem to care about putting that pressure on the guy.
Regardless of everything, Perry's always going to be more of a 3/4 than a 4/5. I think I saw that he's something like 6'7" in reality, not the 6'8" he's listed at, so he's probably 6'6" out of sneakers. That's a 2 or 3 in the NBA, and having him play the 4 in college is putting him at his limits, IMHO.
Again, IMHO, for Perry to be successful, HE needs to play to his strengths which means that he shouldn't be deep in the post bodying up on a guy who's 6'10" in most instances. Additionally, it's equally important for HCBS to make sure the team is set up so that scenario doesn't develop.
This one goes to 11121314!...and counting (sorry UCLA)
