PLAYER SUMMARY: Miami Head Coach Jim Larranaga has done a great job rebuilding the Hurricanes program. He won a fierce recruiting battle with numerous schools as Dewan Huell is perhaps the most talented player to commit to the program in at least a decade. The McDonald’s All-American is the type of player who has the potential to change the fortune of a college program.
Huell is a very athletic PF who is an excellent finisher around the rim. When watching his game tapes, he runs the floor like a point guard as opposing PF’s simply can’t match-up with his athleticism. He should fit in real nicely with Miami’s up-tempo style of play. He is a very good rebounder at the high school level as he sports a 7’0″ wingspan. He has a decent little jump-hook and his range only extends to around 10-12 feet. He will need to improve his overall shooting as well as his mechanics.
Despite all his athletic ability, Huell is very light, weighing around 210 pounds. It will be interesting to see how his rebounding ability translates to the college game. It is imperative that he gets on a rigid strength training program when he gets to Coral Gables in the fall. The majority of his scoring comes in transition and dunks. He will need to incorporate low-post moves into his repertoire for him to become a reliable low-post threat.
Dewan Huell will be counted on to produce for Miami from Day 1. His overall athletic ability and untapped potential on both ends of the court will really excite the Miami Hurricanes fan base. He is not a finished product by any means. However, when watching him play you see the raw talent that isn’t seen by many 6’9″ high school players. It may take some time with him, however the wait will probably be worth it. Head Coach Jim Larranaga will love coaching him to get all that natural ability and talent out of his body.
