Coach Stallings on Krueger
“Bryson probably plays for the best high school team in the state of Arizona. He has an outstanding high school coach that’s taught him the fundamentals of play. He’s an outstanding shooter. He’s got a good mid-range game where he can put the ball on the floor and then pull up for the shot. He’s a good passer and has been taught how to play defense.” “I think basketball means a lot to him. He very serious about the game and very serious about being a good player. We will certainly welcome his shooting ability because he has tremendous range and a great stroke. We’re high on Bryson’s ability and his potential as a basketball player.” “We think he will be a vital part of what we do because with the graduation of Chuck Moore and Sam Howard our need for a wing player was pretty significant.” “We feel good about being able to go that distance and get a guy that really had very little exposure to our program prior to our introduction. We’re pleased that we have gotten him and think he’ll contribute a lot.”
