When all is said and done more is said than done.
I think it's fair to say with the commitment from Moeller's Griffin McKenzie this afternoon, that Chris Mack's 2010 class is either the highest rated or the second highest rated in school history. The machine required an oil change and some major repairs this offseason, but the future is bright.
With the Reds sucking butt and the Bengals fixin' to suck on some more butt, it's nice to be able to circle an Opening Day and actually look forward to the season.
Chris Mack has been a recruiting machine! Dezmine Wells appears to be another great get for the Muskies. If Mack can coach, the future looks very bright on Victory Parkway.
Not sure how Dezmine Wells is a 4 star..6'3 SF who can't shoot. As a UC fan, I'm curious to see how good Jordan Crawford is this year.

I didn't mean to come off as insulting, but I don't see where he's going to get playing time on this Xavier team (if he can't shoot). I'd imagine with that height he'd play SG in college..and even if he did play SF it seems like X is topheavy in those two positions. Yes he's a great athlete and plays solid defense and rebounds well...but is it enough to take playing time from the other PG/SG/SF like Dante Jackson, Jordan Crawford (if he's around), Walsh, Redford, Lyons and Holloway? And since he is 2011 Justin Martin will be at Xavier playing the three with Canty joining him as well.
Then again he's 2011..he's got a few years..we'll see.

Dante and Jordan will be gone.
He's rated around #60 in his class by both Rivals and Scout for a reason. He's obviously got quite a bit of game and can apparently get to the rack (hopefully he's adept at kicking it out to shooters after the drive). How will that translate to college? I guess we'll have to wait and see, but I'm guessing he'll be a regular member of the rotation if not a starter for the bulk of his four years at Xavier.
He's an intriguing prospect for sure. Just reading the reports he sounds identical to Marcus Johnson at UD. I do wonder about his rating being derived from playing along John Wall, but I'm not one to put a whole lot of stock in ratings to begin with, so it's no big deal. Very interested to see his game without John Wall drawing so much attention. He'll be the guy opponents key on for the next two years, and with that ranking he'll draw a ton of attention on the AAU circuit next summer.

I'm sure his rating is based on his AAU play much more than his high school play with Wall. I don't think those talent scouts even bother with regular high school basketball games anymore.
Anyone else going to the Musketeer Madness event tomorrow? My dad and I are using it as an excuse to sink a few beers.
