Does this mean no Aku?

He plays for Eric Gordon’s AAU team and that is the connection to the coaching staff.

Correction he plays for a team from his home state, but in the photo he is playing at the event Gordon sponsors.

They backed off Aku to prioritize Powell this spring from all the info surrounding the recruitment.

I’m glad he is coming. Now can someone explain to me how someone who is rated three stars increases our class to #2? Wouldn’t we have to sign someone at least 4 and maybe 5 stars to raise our ranking to that point? I could actually care less about the star rating stuff. If CKS wants him and we got him great, that’s enough for me; I’m just trying to understand the whole class ranking stuff.

Their formula is based on total points, not average rating. Each commit helps your ranking, even if it lowers the average rating. We are ranked so high right now in part because we have more commits than most top programs. We won’t finish this high, though of course we have great commits.

Gotcha. I was just wondering because KY already has a 4 and 5 star and are the favorite to sign two more 5 stars

Really hard to get a big man with .9+ composite. They are rare and they tend toward the blue bloods even moreso than the top guards.

Much less from Evansville Indiana, the heart of B10 country.

This shows you why I’m not a recruiting guy stats guy. It’s 2019 and I just learned about this percentage thing.
