When? All I remember of him in the regular season is that he barely played. When he did get some time, he had 1 drop and then the coaches didnt play him for the rest of the year.
He looked good in the pre-season when Kaep was throwing to him. In this case, I think the coaches realized that he needed a year to bulk up and gain some confidence.
His scouting report said he catches anything near him, which is why I believe its a confidence issue rather than a talent issue.
With that being said, theres no guarantee he improves next year. Nerves of jelly can ruin a talented players career as fast as lack of talent can. But to say hes been awful is just a gross exaggeration. He will get his shot next year.
