It's funny, there's certain posters still wanting to build up the previous coach so bad they're defending lesser rated recruits by the previous staff yet bashing the targets of the current staff. It's working both ways.

I usually agree with you regarding recruiting and players talent correlating with rank. This time I think it's wrong. He has played well consistently played well against top level competition. I think he is ranked so low because of the tweener body. He can ball and has outplayed a bunch of high major recruits head to head.

Figured the smile pointed out it was a joke. But, anyway, can't take what you dish out? Even If it wasn't a joke.

Obviously it's not the only indication, but it does usually say a good deal about the player's athleticism and motor defensively, no? Unless you're just a behemoth blocking lesser competition. At 6'7, 230 lbs and playing ball in high school, he's not really undersized is he? Being that big it's more than likely he can overpower guys who weigh less; that won't happen in the SEC. All I'm getting at is, if he's a poor man Stokes and can't really block shots (idk if he can or not, which is why I was wondering his BPG), what will Williams bring to the table? Curious to see what VQ has said on Williams.

This kid is closer to 6'5" than 6'7". That is why he does not have many offers. He is more like Moore than Stokes. He does not have Moore's hops or quickness but he is a gamer.

I agree, I was giving him the benefit of the doubt at 6'7 because his 247 profile stated so.

VQ has said they think he's a high major player, as has Eric Bossi the national analyst.

I would definitely like to know his legit height, I've seen listed from 6'5" to 6'8". Of course many said 6'6" for Maymon was generous, so who knows, but I do agree if he's 6'5" that's a little more of a concern to me than if he's closer to 6'7".

That's a 180k difference
Even though they can't give athletic scholarships, they usually put together "academic stipends" for athletes which are not athletic scholarships in name but might as well be

Yes I am very familiar with that. It's based off of family Income.

If the mom works at NASA then it seems likely to me that he won't qualify for as much as many other lower socioeconomic kids might. It's safe to say he will be paying soemthing to go to school IMO.

How much I don't know but whatever it is it's a dramatic difference in the 20k we will pay him to come

Bossi said he could be a high major contributor with time and work.

Rob Lewis says he's 6-5, based on watching him at Tennessee's camp.
