    #1- You realize this kid has TWO more years of high school ball to grow and improve? I’d say he has a pretty decent skill set- Nice coordination, nice jumper- He needs to add some weight, but maybe he plays the 4 in college. I think he’ll do fine.

    Zimmerman seems to have really good ball handling skills for a 7 footer.

    Really tall white guy that’s actually good? Hate to say it, but that sounds like a dukie…

    #6 – mostly agree, but he’s a 7′ 15-year-old. I don’t think he’s going to be playing the 4.

    He’ll study ebonics and go to Memphis.

    what! not a single point guard in the top 15.

    11, my thoughts and bewilderment exactly.

    Zim is a freak. Would be awesome to have

    It wouldn’t hurt my feelings to see him Kentucky Blue, I think he has quite a lot of skills for for a 15 year old 7 footer.

    I’d love to have him… but he looks like a Dukie.

    It’d be nice if a Dukie would pick another coach, just to prove other coaches could make them better.

    Look past the kid’s skin color and floppy bangs, and you’ll see elite talent. Cal recruits the best of the best. Welcome to BBN, tall fella!

    Simmons, Dorsey, and Thomas also have UK interest! Why are they not included?

    I think the kid is going to be good. Sweet Teshawn Prince looking jumper. Looks a lot better than the last big white kid from Scott County that Tubby recruited. I graduated from Scott County and wondered what Tubby was smoking back then. I believe that was around the same time that Chris Lofton was begging to go to UK and Tubby said no thanks. Every coach in the state that played against Lofton knew he had D1 talent.

    Ben Simmons has an offer

    Those worried about the PG position in the top 15, I believe Newman and Matthews are combo guards that play both.

    He kind of looks like Jim Halpert.

    #18 on the full list, Luke Kennard is from the same High School Dave Baker’s from.
