“I’m better jump, I’m able to dunk again, and I’m moving well,” Hummel said in a speech at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County in Indiana, according to La Tribune Post. “I feel very good where I am. I’m ready for the season begins, as is everything else.”
Hummel had surgery on his knee on March 8 and was still limited in what he could do when individual team workouts began in late August.
“I can do whatever I want,” said Hummel. “I was allowed to (play five against five), but I have not yet done. I think it will probably be next week. A few days ago, when (Shelbourne) said: “You C is off, I give you the OK to play,” it does not go there tomorrow and play open gym. I think that means starting to play some one-on-one, two against two, three on three, and become familiar with it. Because now it still feels almost foreign to the race and move because I have not done for so long. I have put my feet back under me. But I feel good where I m. ”
Post-Tribune also reported that Hummel since he could only lift weights for a while during his recovery, he added 10-15 pounds of muscle to his frame of 230 pounds.
Now, he hopes that all work during the offseason will pay off with a trip to the Final Four for a Boilermakers team that is one of the most talented of the nation.
“This is our last go-around,” he said. “Me, E’Twaun (Moore) and Jajuan (Johnson) to realize that. We want to do something special, we want to do together. That’s why these guys decided to come back (after having declared for the NBA Draft but not hiring an agent). “
