COACH AND RECRUITING SERVICE ASSESSMENTS
“The first time I ever saw him play an AAU game back in the spring of 2019 he dove on the floor for a loose ball, got it to a teammate, sprinted the floor and ended up finishing the play. He’s also a very willing passer, and a very good passer. The last game of the season that we played he had his lowest point total of the year, he only had ten points. But he had eight assists, and he also had 19 rebounds, so he just finds a way to impact the game if one part of his game isn’t going so well.”
“He’s every bit of his listed 6-foot-10 (if not a little bigger) and he’s got the type of frame that will be able to carry more weight without costing him athleticism or flexibility. The key with Filipowski is that he blends skill with some toughness and a great motor. He was running the floor, played strong around the rim, showed that he can shoot comfortably from behind the three-point line and he crashed the glass.”
“He (Mike Woodson) seems like he is really big on developing a relationship with the players and families and having that family-type of environment, and just growing together overall with both academics and athletics. He emphasized that was really important for him and his players, so I really liked how he approached some of the topics and he has his values straight.”
“It’s Indiana basketball so obviously we know the reputation they’ve had in the past and what they can be in the future. They got some things going now with the coaching switch and the players so they are really starting to make turns in the program.”
