He got absolutely stomped on by another top recruit. It was Noel if I remember right.

He rose up the rankings too fast. He went from out of the top 100 to in the top 5 like nothing. Like I said before, scouts have a major problem with jumping on (or jumping off) a player's bandwagon and they snowball the hell out of their ranking. McGary was never a top 5 player; just like most of the players who were top 10 early in the rankings that drop to 70+ at some point are better than 80.

Look at Kuran Iverson. He goes from around the top of the class, to falling to the bottom of the top 100, and now he's going to end up in the Mc'D area. They too quickly dropped him. I bet you JP Tokoto ends up better than the 70th best in his class.

He was nowhere near that good in the first place. He got out of podunk Chesterton and scouts saw him for the first time and got hard over it. Then he went through another summer against top guys and realized he''s a guy that should be in the 50s, Derek Willis style, just not as severe a drop because of his size.

If we can get Demetrius Jackson out of Indiana and away from Kansas I will love John Groce forever. Illinois hasn't had a player like him in a loooong time.

We won't even need Jackson if we sign Cat Barber.

he got wrecked in one of the camps by a number of big man prospects, which leads many scouts (and myself included) that he hasn't really improved that much since last year

Barber to NC State. I'd love for Kansas to strike out with both Barber and Jackson. Hopefully Jackson commits to Illinois and Kansas is left out in the cold.

Did you hear the rumors about Barber?

He goes to visit Louisville (very much in his recruitment at the time) about a week back. Thing are fine and then he gets caught stealing a girl's cell phone and/or about $1500 worth of crap from the players.

Pitino then informed Self and Grant (KU and Bama also near the top of his list) and they dropped their offers.

Apparently State was his only option left. Because Gottfried doesn't care about that kind of stuff? I mean Purvis still isn't illegible. To be fair, Purvis graduated top of his class. Of course, he was the only graduating student in his class...

It also makes sense about Barber. He gave no implication that he would be deciding this soon. At the very least, he would take his visits. I heard a lot of rumors about him and Troy Williams pairing up at Bama. Then suddenly he commits on the spot to NC State? And this is a top 10 kid too... Something happened.

Barber's sanctions waiting to happen. But that's nothing new for NC State. Jackson's going to end up at Illinois, just may take a minute. Good for them I guess, just hope it doesn't influence Bates-Diop. But it will.

Told you Groce was a good hire.
