  • My question is why are you guys hyping these players up who have reclassify just for basketball reason only.Before they reclassified those players were just average in the orginal class.With that being said I watch those guys this past weekend and their still not as good as the hype and still not dominating the game.What the reason for being reclassified?

  • Which player are you referring to?

  • Rodney def. dominated the games and Andre had the best footwork and postmoves of anyone at the tourney

  • Josh smith has really gotten better an he is on a very talented high school team around some other d1 talent I only see this kid game going through the roof an he isn’t a reclass kid.

  • We will definitely be scouting Josh and Olympic this season, they are going to have a great team.
