New FAU Center Committ Grant Pelchen

Grant Pelchen
C
6-11, 240
Jupiter, FL

Per Source Hoops this morning:

@SourceHoops: Hearing that 6'11 center Grant Pelchen of Jupiter HS has committed to #FAU.

@jeffgreer: Each tweet about #FAU hoops commit Grant Pelchen has a different height. Doesn't matter: shot alterer, rebounder. Needs time to develop O.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

Re: New FAU Center recruit Grant Pechen

Word on the street from those in the know…

He's expected to grow to 7-0, no problem. Should be at 260 in game shape.  Has soft hands, and a nice touch. Never been in a strength program, will benefit from that greatly.

On a side note…

Dieter posted a blog, and should have a story up on him pretty soon:

Nice! Be nice to finally have some presence in the paint. Something we've been missing since Royster left

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

This kid will be more of a presence than Royster. Maybe not right away,but he will be a solid D-1 big man in a couple of years. We have pretty good HS basketball in the area and he alters every game with his defense.  He is a big kid. Coach Jarvis got a good one and he will be a solid player for FAU. Welcome Grant !

Interesting how Forward Justin Raffington played 2 seasons for Rex Walters at San Francisco then transfers to FAU.  This is a bit ironic to say the least.

I went to the open practice.

And some notes from there:

- Moody is as good as advertised.
- Bertone and Gant are just as good as last year and look like they have improved
- The Dragan is a huge under the basket presence
- looks like Bryant and Thornton will be role players, this year.
- Raffington will rule the 'Belt when he can play. Huge paint presence, knows how to finish, and plays powerfully.
- finally, the team has really bought into the "team" idea, unlike last year.
- we also have to remember how young this team is and how good they will be down the line
