Was an ESPN 3 star recruit. I think would be a great pickup, the 4 years seems to be a bonus.

I am as impressed with his fundamentals as much as I am his size. Really positions himself well around the basket. The competition on the video did not look so good, but for me, didn't make a lot of difference. No question would see a lot of minutes for the Aces, even as a freshman. Hope Walter can get a visit from him.

The big man in the middle we need! I agree with the similarities with Krutwig at Loyola. Roman is an excellent offer.

He has a nice drop step and can score from either side of the basket with either hand. He can even shoot a 3-pointer but I wouldn’t recommend more than one a year.

Bottom line is that if Coach wants him I want him.

The way the tweet reads from Nation Wide Academy... I think we have a real shot at this guy!

Boy, would I like to see this guy as an Ace. Does remind me somewhat of Kurtwig. He would get a lot of minutes as a freshman.

I would like to get him also but he is not in the same world as Kurtwig. Kurtwig can pass and has a drop step move,up and under move. pump fake ,can go left or right, Silva will be a project but at least he would have 4 years.

After working with Walter he might be better. I think he looks like a good prospect. We Shall see.

I know he played well some games and in the tourney . In the two games against the aces this year he scored 12 points and 3 rebounds. Total.
A world beater he is not.
