UMass Profile: Raphiael Putney
Aug. 7, 2009
"Raphiael Putney is exactly the type of player we are looking to recruit at UMass," said Kellogg. "He is a long athletic 6-9 player. He is a little thin, but we anticipate he will able to add on weight. He is a very versatile player who can play multiple positions. Not only is he a great basketball player, he is an outstanding individual on and off the court."
Putney stands 6-9, and weighs 180 pounds and is expected to be a force on the defensive end of the floor, blocking shots. But he can also work in the post with his length.
Putney is part of the class of highly-regarded forward Sampson Carter (Memphis, Tenn.), aggressive swingman Javorn Farrell (Upper Marlboro, Md.) and dynamic scoring guard Freddie Riley (Ocala, Fla.) who signed with the Minutemen earlier during the NLI period.
