I mean, if only there were a coach who had coached a 7 footer with handles like that, AND sent that player to the nba in the top 5. He should definitely go to whatever school has a coach like that.
Dallas, that is one of the more compelling arguments you've made in your VN career. I feel like all the hell you caught here as a teen is beginning to pay off.

Looking ahead to 2021, it doesn’t seem like the Vols are going to change the approach that has landed them three five stars in the past two seasons with the possibility of adding a fourth. Tennessee is trying to get involved with Seattle big man Paolo Banchero, the No. 4 prospect in 2021. There’s also a possibility that Banchero could reclassify into 2020. That’s going to be a tough pull with Kentucky and Duke, among others making him a priority, but simply the fact that Tennessee can now get its foot in the door in a recruitment like that speaks volumes about the program’s rise.
One new name to keep in mind for 2021 is IMG Academy power forward Brandon Huntley. He’s currently a member of the 2022 class but there’s already talk that he’ll reclassify into 2021. Tennessee is on this one hard early on in the process.

What kinda prospect is he in your opinion? Top 50? Top 100 type kid?
Sorry, just now getting to answer your question, but yeah, as you've seen, he's a Keon Johnson-Corey Walker-Jaden Springer level talent. Definitely top-50, and probably higher. It is still early, but his talent is evident. With assumed growth in that talent, he should maintain his position as one of the best in his class.

What's the biggest factor you would say that gives us better chances with higher ranked targets?
  1. Recent success on a national scale (Top ten rankings)
  2. Development of lower-ranked recruits into draft prospects
  3. Having top recruiters on staff (Des Oliver & Kim English)
  4. Josiah James choosing Tenn

I would say some of each but you also have to mention Rick Barnes and the general feeling prospects get that if they come here he will be their coach and that this program has stability to it. Competing in the SEC, an up and coming league also helps.

Hopefully we're paying more, too.

Not a single player outside of the top 100.

I don't think I've ever seen that at Tennessee before. I love it.

Key word, STABILITY!!
Something our football program desperately needs.
My initial reaction was to go with #1(recent success), but I think kids also trust that Barnes and his staff can develop their game to another level.
GBO!!
