    ranked 249th per 247 composite. not at all currently accurate. in my opinion, no doubt a top 100 or even top 60 player. this year's talen horton-tucker. may be the offered post player i want the most.

    yeah, the ranking doesn't make sense right now and i'm sure it's going to move up a lot very quickly, but the ranking does make a little sense when you look at his aau performance last summer. instead of playing with those his own age, he played up (17u versus 16u) and saw only spot duty in a back-up role. also, i think he went from averaging about 10 or perhaps a little less as a sophomore for his high school team to averaging about 20 last season. he's really blossomed.

    in regards to playing up, that often hurts the recruiting rankings for players. ledee played up, too, which is why i think he dropped in the rankings after being a top 25 player his sophomore (and freshman?) season. and then there are the guys who are old for their class, play down (or with, that is) as long as possible, and purposely build a lofty ranking that later proves not to be warranted. see: mickey mitchell. although with mitchell, the injury did have an effect on his ranking drop, but his high early ranking was in large part due to being really old compared to his peers. his parents gamed the system. plenty parents of athletes hold back their kids just to gain a size, strength, and skill advantage. it's shameful. but i guess that's a topic for another thread. /rant

    Right now hearing the most from Arizona, Indiana, Wisconsin, Baylor, and the Buckeyes with Wisconsin probably out in front right now. I guess I did not realize that we were that involved with him.

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Any thoughts on likelihood of landing him? Everything seems to point toward Liddell being more likely?

    Certainly not the poster that you requested:wink: but Liddell is certainly not a lock with Missouri and Illinois definitely in the picture and possibly some others. I am sure that they would prefer him but Nnaji is a guy you just do not throw aside.
