Stanford basketball lands 2015 4-star PF Josh Sharma

The Pac-12 continues to blow the rest of the nation away in 2015 hoops recruiting. Robert O'Neill breaks down Sharma's game.

The Pac-12's dominance of the Class of 2015 continued to show on Wednesday when four-star power forward Josh Sharma (Northfield, Massachusetts) committed to Stanford. Stanford's Class of 2015 is now sixth-best in the Pac-12... and 24th in the nation. That's how strong the conference, as a whole, has been recruiting-wise so far.

What stands out the most in Josh Sharma's game? Let's go to the videotape!

The first thing you notice when watching that video is Sharma's size. He is seven feet tall, and weighs in around 215 pounds, the latter of which helps his above-average mobility. He also is a great shot blocker and rebounder. Unsurprisingly, his game mostly takes place on the inside by way of layups or dunks, you are afforded such a luxury when you're seven feet tall.

That video was more of a fun look at his best dunks of junior year. Obviously he'll have to do more than dunk in college games, but in high school, when you have size like that, you can afford to dunk exclusively.

All in all, Sharma is a very good get for the Cardinal. The Pac-12 is only going to continue to get better in 2015, and Stanford knew they could not afford to miss out on Sharma.
