Do you know that he would have had zero committable offers? As a Canadian player, he got a lot of interest from some pretty good teams out of high school, who backed off because of his weird Canadian grades situation that required him to go the JUCO route. Absolutely worst case, he was certainly offered by Richmond and LaSalle.

And what does “end of story” mean? He’s a for sure bust?

I see no harm in having Bandoumel as a complimentary player. I just don’t expect him to be a star for us. We need to cut our losses elsewhere.

This is kind of a silly argument because no one really knows what to expect from Band.

Bandoumel had no or very few offers when he committed to SMU in the fall, which isn't ideal. That being said, he had numerous offers out of HS and lots of HM interest before he went the JuCo route. He has some HM tools and probably would have had more offers if he didn't have this weird eligibility issue hanging over him (who wants a potentially 1 year JuCo), but was also just above-average at JuCo (14PPG 4RPG 53/39/80 shooting split), not anything special.

He could do well and be a decent 10-15 minute contributor off the bench this season given his athleticism, size, and shooting (shot 39% from 3) or could be another Nat Dixon type flop who has tools that don't translate to the AAC.

Bandoumel actually has better shooting percentage stats at every level -FTs, FGs and 3 Point. Here's Jolly's stats-50.6% from the field, 35.1% on threes and 78.1%. Thing is everybody in JUCO is trying to get out of JUCO and the only way to do that is to manufacture some stats. I watched several of Bandoumel's games and none of his teammates pass up many shots. Question is more about whether his athletic talents fit within a team framework at the next level. His shooting percentages indicate he's got a nice stroke-they aren't meh-they're pretty good

I agree with this, but it is easier to have inflated percentages when you don’t take many attempts per game. Just watching them play it is clear Jolly is definitely on a different level than Bandoumel (rankings aside and his overall stats are vastly superior)
