    From what I recall from what Jared's seen, it sounds like positionally he has the ability to move with just about anyone on the floor, but isn't a great rim protector. Even with Kam Woods, Butler didn't block a ton of shots, so that's not a big deal. Also, "Michigan style small ball" is essentially Butler basketball the last decade or so. Smith, Howard, Streicher, Chrabascz and Fowler all have/had the ability to shoot the 3, and it sounds like Mulloy is in that same mold. Howard (other than his Jr. year when he got called for fouls every 5 seconds), Smith, Streicher, Woods, Chrabascz, Wideman and even Fowler also are athletic enough to be in a decent position even if switched off on a smaller player.

    "Passivity" or not, as long as Mulloy is effective and can duplicate the same efficiency as Fowler, Smith, Howard, Wideman, Chrabascz, Streicher, that's going to help Butler win games.

    The analogy of JMM and Dr. Drew is a good one.

    Regardless of this rating, JMM will prove to be a great addition to BU's program

    You all should no not to put any faith into these rankings. After someone commits and your out of the top 50 or so it truly isn't a good reading on the player. If you truly want a look at the player watch him play a game. Look where JMM got his high school team to this year. JMM Spiece team has two top 25 kids on it that haven't committed. You can bet he isn't seeing the ball much. If he was playing on a different team his ranking would be higher. Kid from Texas Tech appears to be going in the first round of the draft and was rated 240 +- in rankings last year.

    It’s just important to remember that the goals of these recruiting rankings are to rank the best individual players. The goal of any coaching staff in recruiting is to build a roster to win games. While there is certainly plenty of overlap between them, those 2 focuses are not the same thing. For example, there were plenty of “better” basketball players than guys like Vanzant or Veasley. But those guys were absolute perfect fits for their role. If you replace them with most of those more talented players Butler probably doesn’t get to those Final Fours. Having good role players is just as essential as having stars. Good coaches understand how to recruit those players.

    Tough to take much from all-star games. I'm shocked Gillis is playing. He came back from his knee scope and played the other weekend up in Chicago. Played alright, but then played like 20s versus the KY juniors in 2 games bc his knee was sore due to coming back too soon. Bummed that Brooks and TJD have been in CS trying out for USA this whole all-star week. I think someone on Spiece might be a true PG, but idk if the Juniors had one. That's probably why Franklin/Gillis/Newman had so many TO's. Plus, it's an all-star game. Again, Isaiah Thompson coming back from his ankle sprain would help. Dawand Jones is massive. I wonder what type of football career choices he has.

    I am not concerned in the least. JMM is a smart player and once he fills out I predict he will have a wonderful career.

    The Indy Star seems to be on a mission of promoting IU.

    Agreed - I think he'll be a great college player for Butler once he's gotten stronger and had some time to develop. I'm not saying he should be in front of Brooks, TJD, Franklin, Newman or Gillis, but Hemenway and Thompson being ahead of him are the guys I mainly question. It's all opinion based, so I'm not saying Neddenriep is 100% wrong, I just don't agree with it.

    The state of basketball in Indiana is strong, but the ratings are subjective at best.
