    that’s not Thad. He’s been out of the game so long they forgot what he looks like. (FYI Ball plays for Brewster)

    Thad was here. Really interested if anyone gets a new offer from it. (Idk if he stayed the whole time though).

    I guess our "other level" facilities weren't enough to put us over the top.

    Doubt he had a committable offer at this point. With Bates and Thomas on board we shifted our focus to the guard position.
    Sure Thad is targeting a 2024 big or or two for when Bates and Thomas use up eligibility

    This was an eye opener for me on the veracity of recruit ratings....

    Yet just another example of how the ratings are overrated.

    I totally agree that there is pretty good evidence to suggest that the ratings don't do a particularly good job of predicting who will do well in college.

    A couple of questions: first, what do the ratings purport to rate? Are they judgments or who the best players have been in high school (or are at the end of high school) or are they predictions of who will do the best in college?

    What does being "Player of the Year" actually mean? Does it mean, for example, that Frank Kaminsky was the best player in college basketball during his senior season or, perhaps, that he had the best season of any college basketball player that year, or maybe that he was the most valuable player on a contending team, or something else? If players were re-rated at the end of that year, would Kaminsky have necessarily been rated number 1? I note that the NBA didn't believe these were the best players--or at least would not be the best NBA players--as, I believe, Zion Williamson was the only Player of the Year who was picked number 1 in the NBA draft. The rest went lower--many much lower. (Kaminsky, for example, went 52nd.)

    Another honest question: how much of the discrepancy between high school rating and college player of the year voting results from terrible judgment by the raters and how much results from incredible improvement by these players during their college careers (or maybe from other factors such as being in a system that highlights their strengths and hides their weaknesses)?
