Scout.com Releases New Top 100 for 2012

 

You’ve seen Rivals and ESPN and now Scout.com has saved the best for last and released their updated class of 2012 rankings.  You can check out the full list here, but the important names on Kentucky’s radar are listed below.  The Cats will most likely aim to pull 4-6 guys from the names listed, so go ahead and rub your little lamp and pick your five guys in the comments section below.

1.  Shabazz Muhammad
2. Andre Drummond
3. Mitch McGary
4. Brandon Ashley
9. Kaleb Tarczewski
10. Anthony Bennett
12. DaJuan Coleman
14. Archie Goodwin
19. Robert Carter
22. Devonta Pollard
25. William Goodwin
26. Ricardo Ledo
34. Perry Ellis
52. Torian Graham
67. LJ Rose
98. Charles Mitchell

Maybe the most interesting ranking is shooting guard Ricardo Ledo, rated by Rivals as the #8 overall player, who checks in at #26 overall on Scout.com’s rankings.  And guess what?  Ricardo Ledo is not impressed by this at all.

    Mr. Ledo: You are correct. The rankings indicate there are 25 players better than you.

    #2 LMFAO -you said it before I could…

    Ledo seems like the perfect “individual” player, but someone that would destroy chemistry on a team.

    I think we sign the following players:

    Shabazz Muhammed
    Kaleb Tarczewski
    Dajuan Coleman
    Ricardo Ledo
    Perry Ellis

    I believe we get at least 3 out of 5 of these guys and whoever Coach decides he wants.

    When did we stop recruiting #17 Alex Poythress?

    8. I think we get Poythress first and replace Ellis with him on your list.

    Ol’ slick Rick you are absolutly correct….you are too damn good of a player to b out of the 25!!!! Listen to me when I tell you Ricky fifteeno will ruin your draft stock!!!! Don’t think so? Just look at the past top 10 players landing at Louisville….with the exception of twill and Earl clark pitino has ruiend players draft stock!!!!! Coach cal is the man that turns great players into superstars….y do u think his the highEst paid coach in the game

    Gary Harris is off the UK radar. Indiana, Purdue and Michigan State are the schools he listed for his official visits.

    #8 and #12: Actually, the possessive pronoun for Scout.com is not “there” or “their.” As an entity, the proper pronoun is singular. Thus, it should be “its.”

    You know, since we are playing grammar cops.

    Ledo is right…there are 25



  23. Says me
    1:59 pm August 15, 2011 Permalink

    Rivals hasn’t updated since early July. Expect them to do so at some point in the next few weeks, and expect Ledo to drop there too.

    Ledo seemed to play OK most of the summer, but he apparently displayed a miserable attitude in general, and his teams consistently lost. That combo is going to cause scouts to drop him from where his actual talent probably merits, which is probably the 7-15 range.



  24. JMFATZ47

    Ledo is unhappy with his ranking and anyone who is competitive will have this reaction. However, it was poorly portrayed on Twitter. Sometimes you will see a ranking come out in which a player drops and they approach it differently. Last year when Gilchrest lost the top spot I seem to remember him showing a bit of disappointment but I also remembering saying he would use it as motivation to improve. A much more “mature” approach.

    Either way, I love Ledo’s game and if Cal gets ahold of him he will get put in check quick and any current issues will likely become non-issues.

    Shabazz Drummand Eliis and Goodwin or Ledo



  28. bung

    Drummond will go pro I think.

    Ok 21 glad you corrected me!! However when typing on an iPhone the words do pop up when you’re typing. Just in case you don’t have one!! So occasionally I’m bound to make a mistake. Unlike you!!

    Need to add TJ Warren, who holds a UK offer and rose to #23.



  31. Poco Chang

    Ledo sounds like another Selby. He will go to a good program, not fit in, leave for the draft after 1 year, not get drafted.

    McGary, Tarczewski, Bennett, Goodwin, & Carter…Warren also. WGH

    Well if he’s No. 26 then no, there are not 26 players better than him. DUUUUHHHHH

    yeah, not sure how you leave alex p off the list as much as ksr has talked about him recently … also, lj rose is not an option after we picked up harrow (this happened the same time rodney purvis and uk parted ways)
