I remember being SUPER excited about a football player by the name of De'Andre Payne one time.... I thought coming out of high school he was going to be an all american his freshman year...... He is probably working at a check cashing place currently.... I was as WRONG about him as you are about Grant.
I'll be honest and say that I was a little on the fence about Grant at first, but it was because:
1. I thought he was shorter than he actually is. For some reason I thought he was like 6'3-6'4ish playing in the post. But I think he is more around 6'6-6'7, which Maymon and Moore have shown that if you have the strength you can hold your own down low even if you are a couple inches shorter than who you are playing against.
2. I haven't found much tape on him, so I was soley going on his rankings. But after hearing how well he has played against some good talent, I think this kid is really underrated. CRB & staff have been on this kid longer than anyone else, so I trust their evaluations - after all he has put about 20X more players in NBA than any of us lol.
As I've said a few times, if this kid is the worst player we sign in the 2016 class I'm perfectly fine with it. His offer list has pretty much all formed in the last month, clearly shows he's a player on the rise, other HMs have began recruiting him and I would guess after this last live period of the summer he'll add a few more offers. He's a guy who I think will end up ranked in the ~200 range when all is said and done, and in a 5-7 man class im ok with that being the worst.
Now....if he's the headliner of the class, I've got a major issue with it yes.
