Eh maybe true, they showed some signs this year. Could be some bumps in year one though with a new coach.

Bumps in the road are a big improvement over last year.

Rosario can definitely score. Who's gonna be the biggest impact freshman in the Big East?

I got Devin Ebanks, obviously. But the kid can PLAY. Should replace Joe nicely.

And personally I like scout.com a lot better than rivals. They have him at #9 in SG's, not sure about overall.

I'm not much on scout.com because sometimes i see stuff like under strengths-great shooting form and distance on shot and under weaknesses- needs to improve long range shooting for the same person.

But some big impact freshman in the east could be...
Ebanks
Kemba Walker
Greg Monroe
Samardo Samuels
Ater Majok
Mookie Jones
Mike Rosario
Yancy Gates


I think I'm going Yancy Gates as far as putting up big numbers, but Samardo Samuels as far as the biggest impact to his team. (like picking kevin durant for ROY, but al horford if you believe in "making the team better")

Walker will have a huge impact if Price can't go to start the season.

Yeah I've saw that a couple times. But I think scout has more underhyped player profiles. Atleast for guys around here. And their rankings are more accurate IMO.

Yeah i was following a player named Justin Watts on scout.com because rivals didn't have much on him. He was being recruited by temple and had been offered a scholarship but he accepted one from UNC. Funny thing is he's from durham,nc.

Yeah not bad. To be honest I don't think I had ever heard of him.

I expect him to be one of those 4 year contributors. Maybe taking a similar path as Joe Crawford from Kentucky.

Anyone else think Pitt is gonna be a Top 25 team in football this year? They'll have to eventually with those recruiting classes they have been getting.

I don't watch college football as much, but just wondering what if cincinatti could be a team to challenge WVU.

I have no idea why Donte Green left early. He could have been top 10 in a year or two if he had stayed and improved his game. Not only that, Syracuse would have been an outstanding team next year with him on the roster.

Yes, they will be top 25. They are a fringe top 25 team in most preseason polls and they do not have a very diffcult schedule. LeSean McCoy is one of the best backs in the nation and I think Pat Bostick will have a berakout year at QB.
