Was he committed somewhere?
No, I don’t believe so. I think he just means he is opening up his recruitment to expand beyond the 10 teams that made up his top-10. A bit misleading and more of an attention grab. In fairness to the kid, the guy behind Tipton Edits could have reached out to him for an update, and Williams just informed him that he was opening things up beyond what he was originally considering and a Tipton made it a headline.

Chandler has already been bumped to #7.

I’ll predict Aidoo at #25, BHH at #28, Mashack at #62, and Diboundje at #175 if they go that far. Doubt he sneaks into the top 150.

Probably going pro, anyway, but that list seems to pay homage to 5 HBCUs amongst his top 10. Not sure it was super serious, but a lot of kids have been including some HBCUs within their top lists.
More African Decent individuals should go to HBCUs...bring in large amounts of money for your own communities 🚀

Hard to tell with the shifting sands as they complete the update, but it looks like...
#7 Chandler
#21 Aidoo
#32 Huntley-Hatfield
#50 Mashack
#147 Diboundje
Fantastic class, and great late find on Diboundje...if those are your “projects” in a class that’ll do just fine.

It stills blows my minds that BHH can be #6 in 2022 but drop all the way to #32 in 2021, especially for a guy who was originally supposed to be in 2021. I get why. I do. But, it comes across as them saying the 2022 class sucks compared to 2021, which just isn't true.
I agree. They'd have a stronger argument if BHH was a 17-year old kid moving up with some work to do physically to compete with older guys, but as you said, he was originally in this class, anyway. He is physically developed, he is skillfully developed, and will have little problem holding his own. This seems like an over-application of the idea of dropping a kid in the rankings because of a reclass.

He dropped from 6 to around 14 on Rivals before he reclassified. Still think its too low though.

Cant wait to see Chandler do his thing here. And I don’t mean for this to sound like a knock on CRB, but I’m more tickled about getting 2 quality bigs in one class than I am about how high this class is ranked.

An altercation between 2023 #2 player, Mikey Williams and a fan in the stands at Catholic HS. Cops escorting people out, fans coming on the court.

The crowd allowed in this gym is awful...cannot believe the fire marshall allowed it. WAAAY over capacity, and people lined up on both baselines 3 and 4 people deep.

BJ Edwards has been unbelievable in this game. Totally outshining Williams, so far.

Whoa what happened with Williams and the fan??

Also, the size of that crowd sounds ridiculous.

He went up for a layup on a fast break, got fouled and fell to the baseline, and a fan made contact with and I'm sure said something, as well.

The crowd is legitimately unsafe, and while I'm not a Corona bro, it seems grossly irresponsible, honestly.
