    I am not really a shiny objects, pretty stars type. However, this seems to be a insult and shows a lack of respect. He just spent the summer whipping the best players ahead of him.

    A lot of the time they are attempting to project guys all the way to the NBA. I doubt Niang plays in the NBA but he will be a great player for us.

    Re: Georges Niang ranked #99 on rivals

    Here's my thing. These ratings are out for about 1-2 years before the kids reach college. IMO their initial placement has a huge impact on their final one. If they move the players too much from the start, they end up admitting that their original rankings were shite. Niang started out unranked, and has moved all the way into the top 100. Guys like Phillip Nolan, who have done basically nothing to improve their stock, only fall slowly in these type of things. Webster Chan was in the 130s, and had a bad summer, so he fell out.

    Unless you are highly thought of early in the process, you are not going to get all the way to the top.

    Why care at this point. Have him come in and beat everyones *** in the B12 and he will get all the praise he could ever want. Thats the floor it matters on anyway.

    I totally agree Niang's game will transfer and be affective immediately in college in any conference. He will be a game changer from day one....Outside of the top 20 loads of ranked players talent will not transfer to the next level.

    After the top 20 the rest is just a guess and not based on talent just potential. Too much of the rankings are based on where they could go with their athleticism.

    FYI, Tilton is traveling to play outside the northeast this season. will keep the cyclones up to speed on where the games are being played..

    Everyone moved up a spot. Something must have happened to a top 40 player.
