Angelo Solis, 6’4″, 210, Freshman…Red Shirt Year Made Huge Difference!

Angelo Solis, 6’4″, 200, Freshman

What a difference a red-shirt year can make!  That is if you use it like Angelo Solis did.  Playing the paint in high school( John Burroughs HS in Burbank)  he definitely was not going to play those positions in college.  Instead, he and the coaching staff decided that a year moving over to the small forward position would be a big advantage for Solis.  It looks like he exceeded all expectations!  In fact he reminds me of the European players that are currently the rage in JUCO basketball.  Well trained in the basics of basketball out of High School.


A very smart player on and off the court, he is always at the right place at the right time.  His three point shooting has improved dramatically over the year.  His time in the weight room(well spent) and the positions he played in High School  have made him a beast on the boards at his new position.  He sets the example of how a college basketball player should act, understands his role as a freshman and is a true quiet leader on the floor.  A great addition to the team.  P.S.  He knows his role on the team.
