Back in mid-October, the Rutgers sent assistant coach Stephen Hayn down to Florida to watch forward Palmquist workout in person to see his potential in person. TKR spoke with Central Pointe Christian head coach Brad Traina shortly after coach Hayn visited campus.
"He's a 6-foot-8, forward from Sweden who plays both the three and four," coach Traina said. "He's also a very versatile kid. He is long, athletic and can shoot the ball very well. He also has good decision making skills and plays hard every time."
The Swedish native is the second forward prospect in the class, joining the likes of North Carolina big man Dean Reiber.
Palmquist is currently unranked per the Rivals.com database, but is expected to receive his ranking very shortly.
