His first year there was definitely a struggle for him. In addition to being extremely tall and bulky, his conditioning was really poor. Could only go for 3 or 4 minutes at a time if I recall. His second year was much better as he was in much better shape. He was still slow, but he was able to get up and down the court easier and didn't need as many breaks.
