Getting To Know ... Kyle Caudill
May 2, 2011
Kyle Caudill will arrive in Chestnut Hill in late June. Until that time, the 6-foot-11-inch, 290-pound center from Brea, Calif., will be working on his game while keeping a close eye on his beloved Los Angeles Angels. He may also try to sneak in another music concert.
Describe your game, your style of play.
What do you believe are your strengths and weaknesses?
My biggest weakness is just overall athleticism right now, and I'm working hard to get my vertical and quickness and overall agility up to compete on the ACC level.
How familiar are you with your future BC classmates/teammates, especially those who are also from California? Have you played with or against any of them?
I actually work out with Ryan right now out at Long Beach Poly and so we're kind of just getting our groove together. When Ryan and I played together, we played really well. He's super versatile. He can shoot threes, he can go inside and bang a little bit.
Jordan (Daniels) actually played for the Pumps but he was on a different team than us so I don't know him as well.
What do you know about Boston College and the city of Boston?
I absolutely love the city of Boston. The only thing that's going to be tough is being in Red Sox country because I'm a huge Angels fan. We can never seem to get by them in the playoffs.
Are you looking forward to spending a few years on the East Coast?
Did you get a chance to watch BC on TV this past year? What appealed to you about Coach Donahue's style of play?
What attracted you to Boston College?
I love the academics of the school, the fact that it's one of the "new Ivy Leagues". When I went out there I was amazed by the look and the feel of the school. It's really a special place.
What other interests or hobbies do you have?
I'm huge into music. I try to get to as many concerts around here as I can. Another thing I'm really looking forward to in the city of Boston is going to a Dropkick Murphy's concert.
