he's a consensus top 100, as high as the 70s, based on pre-AAU/Peach Jam performances. I expect him to see an upgrade in the next round of ratings, but probably not enough to get to 5*. If he gets a Kentucky offer, it might happen.

Hope Wagner commits to UK
5 stars is top 20-30. He’s not rising that high.
That’s cool. He may outplay his rank. But calling him a 5 star guy isn’t true. I guess we can call everyone we want or that we get a 5 star guy, but that’s not how the world worlds.

Of the four guys we are prioritizing (Dillione, Demarry, Green, Jackson)...I'm gonna say Jackson has the best shot at becoming a borderline 5*.

Yo, y'all show Freddie the most NCAA legal love you can (although these days, that prob means you can buy him a car). Rams are in a great spot with that guy, we need to bring him home!

"
Dilione, who averaged 22.5 points per game this summer with Team Loaded, was listed as a first-team All-Adidas player by 247Sports national analyst Eric Bossi.

"I got my first chance to see the high-scoring combo guard back in April and loved what I saw," Bossi said in the article linked above. "Watching him again in July, he was even better than the first time around. His prowess as an on-the-ball shot creator for himself and others along with his sneaky explosiveness in getting to the rim really stands out. He looks like he’s built to get buckets on the college level."

“I feel like I can come in and help the team win right away and make plays for them,” Dilione said about the potential opportunities at Wake Forest, who will lose guards Daivien Williamson and Ty Appleby after this season. “I can make plays and score the ball when they need me to.”

Dilione is on his way to an official at Alabama, and has already made trips to Virginia, Tennessee and VCU.

“That’s it,”
he said when asked what is next recruiting-wise. “That will be my five visits.

“I’m looking for a staff to surround me and help push me to the next level. I want to be on a team that can help get me to the next level. “

He has no timetable for a final decision.

Well done, boys and girls. Keep it going. Flooding Freddie with VCU love while he is on his official to Ala is a great idea.

Winston Salem sucks balls. I slept plenty of time there growing up and it’s awful compared to Richmond. They have a nice arena and their students do a good job, but short of having another underrated, top 10 player of all-time land in their lap, they aren’t doing crap in the ACC.

I am not well-versed in the southern cities. Which offers more to do? Richmond or Louisville?

I've lived in both, but it's been a long time. Richmond is as close to being my home town as any of the 10 places I have lived in my life. But back in the early 80's I loved living in L-ville. A nice mix of southern and mid-west. I could move back to either one and be happy I think.
