Dante the great certainly has some great vision. It will be fun to see the offensively skilled guard perform in this combine setting.

I don’t know much about Bernardez but when I see a 6’3 8th grader, I’m definitely intrigued. A lot of his evaluation will be based off the physical test, as his speed, and athleticism will provide a good indication of his potential.
