He was not recruited out of high school, fell between the cracks and blew up in college. A good evaluator is supposed to project the ceiling of talent. Kids who appear awesome out of high school get the 4/5 stars but where is their ceiling? Maybe Ricky Towne and Max Browne hit their ceiling early.
Lock down the 4/5 star locals but fill the rest of the class up with "quality" recruits regardless of what stars they happen to be.
