Alex O’ Connell - Rising Force?

When you see how skinny he is, just imagine some serious muscle on his frame. He’s going to be good.

Remember Mike Dunleavy? Of course you do, or at least a lot of you do.

But do you remember when he got to Duke? Do you remember how painfully skinny we was as a young player?

Well, get ready for Alex O’ Connell. As you’ll see in this video, he’s strikingly athletic.

What you don’t see is that he arrived at Duke listed 6-6 and 171.

Dunleavy, currently a free agent, is listed at 230.

It’s different for everyone, but we think O’ Connell could easily put on 30-40 lbs. And pair that athleticism and shooting with some power and you’ve got a really serious player on your hands.
