I had a chance to catch up with Waverly Austin from Dallas, TX in the class of 2010 last night to get an update on how the recruiting process is going for him.
At 6'10/235lbs Austin is a good athlete who runs the floor well and does a good job crashing the boards on both ends. He finishes strong inside and has a nice touch out to the mid-range. On the defensive end he blocks or alters a lot of shots with his leaping ability.
