Its hump day and I need something to debate over. I think I might even add a poll in this post to make things interesting. So I was reading through Rivals and Scout today. Rivals has updated their 2013 rankings and Andrew Harrison is the #1 player in the country. His brother Aaron is the #7. Rivals has said that the top 9 rankings are basically untouchable. While players might move up or down in the top 9, these 9 have seperated themselves from the rest of the country by leaps and bounds.
"The top nine prospects have distinctly separated themselves in the 2013 class as the cream of the crop," Meyer said. "What is interesting about the nine is that they make a terrific nine-man rotation that could win a lot of games over the course of a lot of years.
"The top five makes a cohesive starting five and then you have four players who can play multiple positions backing them up."
Moving onto Scout- Lets talk about recruiting classes. Right now Scout has MD as the 20th best class in 2012 with Shaq Cleare & Seth Allen. However, looking at the teams in front of us, none appear that dominant until #4-5. I think that with the addition of another top 50 player we would skyrocket all the way to #5th. Most of the teams in front of us have either 1 player ranked slightly higher than Cleare or two players in the 60-100 range. If we were to add McGary I think we move all the way to 3rd and move Texas to 4th. If we add Jefferson, Carter, Layman, or Grant I think that we move to 5th and bump Nova to 6th. If we add Henderson this weekend I think that we would move to 13th behind UCLA. I have no idea what would happen if we add more then 1 of McGary, Carter, Layman, Jefferson, Grant, & Henderson.
Where do you guys see the 2012 class being ranked after all is said and done?
