That 59 is for the recruit ranking. Not pre-season ranking.
I know that it is their recruiting ranking, but this is a different article - this is CBS's preseason TEAM ranking for 19-20. Here is the write-up from the article to which I am referring:

From the Kenyon thread on HR:

My boys did their announcement and then turned off their notifications. They never wanted to do the showcases that “rate” players. They wanted to stay in the gym, work on their weaknesses and play the game the right way.

"The right way" is the cornerstone for the Iowa program.

Kenyon HAS to get off the internet. Immediately.

He's making what was going to be a tough road for his kids anyway even tougher.

Also, you have to be damn good to play at any DI and AMAZING to play at a P5. Kenyon isn't doing his kids any good telling them to play at a level above where they should be. Let their prep year play out and if you end up with better Summit or Horizon offers than Western; great, go play there and be successful. Its so telling that the Valley, which does a great job of taking potential and turning it into something, wasn't interested at this point.

Keep in mind that Kenyon had to endure Dr. Tom Davis as his coach while at Iowa. His boys will be in better hands....:eek::confused:

Sounds like the ship has sailed for Sibley. Fran is down to two of his top targets.

...ok. So do 1000's of other kids. It's like Hawkeyes are instructed to say "the right way."

North side hawk may seriously be the stupidest of the stupids, and the most insecure in a fan base that is insecure off the charts.

Ankeny, IA.
garza has no chance at the NBA.. he’s way to slow footed.. he Wouod get crushed trying to defend 4’s in nba.. lmao..

Weiskamp might after his Jr year.. maybe.. Weiskamp= Uthoff. Uthoff has struggled to get anywhere close to nba roster.
Weiskamp is a more complete player than Uthoff and therefore will have a chance.

Garza however... just no.

I am still not convinced that Wieskamp is an NBA player. He shot well last year but can he do it again when he is the main focus of other teams’ defense?

He'll never be the main focus. Joe seems like a good kid and a good basketball player.
He could fit into a team really nicely and get his 8-12 pts a night.
