About Nevell’s basketball.  The man is strong and his weight room time shows.  He has great jumping ability and is willing to play anywhere he can help the team.   He is very strong around the baskets and a solid mid-range shooter.

Lenard is taking classes leading toward degrees in Kinesiology and/or Business.  He will have to find his role on a completely different basketball team this year filled with talent and size.  In addition, he will have to show university coaches that he serious about his academics this year.
