    Wesley Staten, how high will he be ranked?

    Does anyone think he could be a top 20 talent? I would be curious to know if anyone has seen him play. I'm really excited about getting this kid, i think he could be great. I'm deffinetly not saying he is better than HB, but he got more hype before his hs career started than HB did, and espn ranked him in the top 10. It will be neat to see if he makes the fantastic 15 for 2012, which will come out once the hs season is over.

    Hard to say. HB wasn't ranked until before his Junior season

    I think he will be top 50. He has gotten off to a really impressive start so far

    Don't know anything about this kid. Where's he live? What kind of competition does he play? What's his postition? Why do you like him so much?

    He is a freshmen in hs from sioux city who has already committed to us. He starts in varsity as a freshmen and has been doing really well. ESPN makes it sound like he can really play.

    Someone saw him play and started a thread about it, but that thread quickly degenerated.

    I'm going to go off on a limb here, but i think, if we dont sign HB, Wesley will be our first McD's all american since marcus fizer.

    That is going on the limb as the state of Iowa has not produced many All Amercians. Raef Lafrenz, and probaly Harrison Barnes are about the only ones I can think of off hand.

    Re: Wesley Staten, how high will he be ranked?

    Wesley has the potential to be ranked as high as Harrison. Wesley will be arguably the best PG in his class if he keeps developing like he is. He will end up being about 6'5". He will be a big PG like a DG except with a really good outside shot, more athletic/faster and with better ball skills. Essentially DG except a lot better lol


    ALL IN

    How do we know he will be about 6'5''? Are his parents tall? I certainly hope this turns out to be the case.
