Go for it as long as you or he is willing to do a bit of work (needs a front tire/tube, obviously, and if it needs that it probably needs other stuff too). It's not a high-end model, looks like it may have steel rims, but the price is solid. The bar-end shifters alone (a non-original upgrade) are worth $35-40.

Just make sure it fits him well. From the picture I'm guessing it's about a 53cm frame, which will generally fit people roughly 5'4-5'8.
