    I’ve seen all these players. Scout.com is full of it. Towns s not 10. None of these are better than he is.

    Agree towns is too low, and turner goes from unranked to #5?

    I think well have only (haha only) a top 3 recruiting class next year, not necessarily #1. However we should have some holdovers which could make that team even more lethal.

    Mudiay, Towns, Johnson, Alexander. That’s a pretty good looking team.

    Agree with #4, those 4 guys look like UK all the way. Okafor/Jones/Looney to Duke. Lyles to UL. Turner to ???

    This class must be loaded if KT Jr is 10th… he is going to be a very special player.

    Daniels is a farce.

    How is KT Jr so low? I’ve seen him play pick-up games and scrimmages against players like Wiggins and dominate. There is no way he is the 10th best player.

    Cliff Alexander is a Power Forward
    Looney and Jackson shouldnt be in the top 15
    Towns reclassified so he will have to work back up, but scout has him way too far down. Classic scout, they are lost.

    1st rule of recruiting, disregard any Scout.com rankings

    Looney is appropriately named.
    He’s the one one on the entire list not interested in or signed to UK.
    Looney, indeed!
    Now, let’s all have a collective You Da Man for Cal as we remember that in the years just before he arrived, we’d be thankful for one guy just interested let alone signed.

    For all of you who think otherwise, we will have the #1 recruiting class next year. Have you learned nothing since Cal has arrived?

    14) It will be between UK, UNC and Duke. UNC already has 3 top-20 guys signed. Duke looks like they will get Jones, Okafor, Winslow, Looney, and already signed Grayson Allen. UK may still get 4 top-10 guys, though. Coin flip

    They’re on crack, Karl Towns is a special player, and should be top 5, no less.

    Sweet, yet another team who will wear the preseason crown only to disappoint BBN once more.
