Happy Sunday night!
While I’m sure many were expecting someone else when Dennis Gates sent out his Fist Pump tweet, the reality was Mizzou was still hunting for a big man. And Gates found one in Campbell transfer big Jesus Carralero.
Campbell transfer Jesus Carralero has committed to #Mizzou @247SportsPortal has learned. Averaged 10.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game last year. Was top 10 in Bog South in rebounds, steals, assists and blocks in 2021-22. pic.twitter.com/yKqfh82WI1— Eric Bossi (@ebosshoops) April 30, 2023
Carralero only played in 5 games this past season, where he averaged 10.6 ppg and 5.2 rpg. But he made 5 of 10 3FGA and had a eFG% of 62.1. His season was cut short due to an injury, but he’s a skilled playmaker who should fit well into Gates system.
Let’s Meet Jesus Carralero
- From: Malaga, Spain
- Position: Post
- Ht/Wt: 6’8 / 220
On film you can see the framework of a skillful player. Much of the Missouri offense is run out of the pinch post and Carralero looks like a very good passer from that position. As we get more information and data, we’ll go deeper in on him. But as a depth piece there’s a lot to like about what he can bring to the rotation. He can extend the floor, rebound, and play the role of connector offensively.
