VIDEO: NC State Commit Richard Howell vs. Walton




This is a video that we put out a while back, but we wanted to re-release it in High Quality. On Friday, February 13th, Richard did all he could, scoring 24 points against Walton. But Walton went on to defeat Wheeler for the first time in over a decade to the tune of 82-81. As you can see, Richard's post game is very advanced for his age. His footwork with his back to the basket is solid, and he is also comfortable reverse pivoting to create space when he wants to face up and attack. It will be nice to see Sir Rich's silky smooth moves next year decked out in Red and White. Enjoy.

    The thing that really impresses me with Sir Rich is the varity of moves he has with his back to the basket. atleast 5 times they would just lob it to him 15-20 ft from the basket and he would set up and make a strong move either way and finished with soft touch. I can understand why so many scouts say he will translate very well even in the acc. cant wait to see him next year!!

    These recent recruits all look good, though I'm seriously thinking that Scott Wood might be a real sleeper, and just what the doctor ordered.

    Also, if not for just for the name alone, we need to be all over a kid named Deuce Bello. That kid looked he was more than able in the tenth grade.

    I had heard a little about him, but thanks for the videos WPH, great stuff!!!

    RH hasn't gotten a lot of attention as-of-late. Thanks for posting this! (I just realized we'll have two "RH"s in '10).

    Howell definitely has the potential to be a very good ACC-player. He's quick for his size and has some nice footwork. And like all of our current recruits, he's very athletic! (I especially like the hop around 0:30)

    We've got a plethora of athletic, hard-working winners coming in next year who fill our needs until next year.

    Then the other RH will arrive. Harrow should quickly establish himself as a very solid point guard, and he'll be surrounded by talent. I think we're building the foundation for a very solid and exciting team!

    With the post moves of TS and RW next season we should be able to score in the low post. Hopefully that will help with the huge scoring droughts we have been known for.

    Richard shows the agility and balance in his footwork more frequently seen in HS perimeter players (I've read where he played small forward a lot prior to his senior season).

    Coach Lowe likes to underscore understanding the angles of game and Richard certainly has a good grasp already. For a guy who has the knack for playing a great physical game he doesn't waste time just lowering his shoulder into his man. Instead he takes his experience playing in space and makes his pivot or step through moves to insure the defender is atleast at the hip before he tries to score. At this point the defender can't go "straight up", but instead has to try to block the ball over the top or foul through.

    Tone up on a NC State weight/conditioning and he will be a match up at the 4 every nite for Coach Lowe- he might be best suited to the offense we are currently running then any othere recruit.
