    How close was Matt Thomas to Mcdonals AA game?

    I was bumed he didn't make the list. Wasn't he a top 40 recruit? Plus I thought CW said he had an outside shot.

    who knows? wacky selection process done by tons of coaches/others who don't see all the players.

    Seems like that game is more of a showcase for one and done nba talent. Maybe its also based on who these guys sign with which would create more viewers. Also matts rank dropped from mid 30s to late 50s I think

    If he would've signed with Kentucky or Mich State or Louisville, he would've been bumped up to mid teens.


    My teams: (as of 6/15/14)
    Cleveland Browns: 4-12 - .250
    Cleveland Indians: 34-35 - .493
    Cleveland Cavs: 33-49 - .402
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 3-9 - .250

    I'd rather the country (and the Big 12) not know what's coming until Thomas drops four or five straight 3's in their grill and tight walks like McLemore in front of their bench. Might even throw in a Mutumbo finger for good measure.

    The chose depending college choice now. The Weir brothers commited to UNC and were ranked in the low 70's and were invited. Just because they were UNC commits. That was a few years ago.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Who was our last McD AA player? I remember Fizer being in the game, but not sure if he was the last one or not.

    I don't know if he has enough "thug" in him for that. I don't think he's up to Scotty C's level yet.
