Never saw Michael Jordan play in person but just by watching him on TV I still am of the opinion that he was pretty good. ;) :) :lol:

Guessing that the MVPs, all star game appearances and world championships probably sealed the deal for you? lol.

Good point Monte. I've seen highlights and parts of a couple games. But basing my 'under-rated / under-ranked' view on his ranking before he was injured. I think he was rated above some players he now lags. The current rankings do not seem to give him any credit for a great senior year and an impressive comeback from a nasty injury.
Admittedly, my view is limited and very partial! Lol.


Lots of OSL games are in full and available online. He’s played against good talent.

My thing is this. Posh was a top 70 kid before breaking his arm. He had an absolutely fantastic senior season, against top competition. The OSL team was one of the tops in the country and his numbers were incredible overall. He even scored 60 points against Word Of God academy, hitting something like 24/40 shots and breaking Rawle Alkins record for that tournament. Word of God academy is no slouch team either. His ranking never got back to what it was pre-injury and most didn’t even re-rank him, despite him having a senior season that is pretty hard numbers-wise to top.

If somebody rates 40+ Pg’s in the class ahead of him, he’s incredibly underrated. He’s not been stopped by anybody he’s played and put up phenomenal numbers this year. In addition, like I said, lots of his full games available online with The Grind session and other places. I’m very happy to have him here.

I'll wait and decide for myself. To many times Ive heard the same song and dance from the so-called "experts" on this board about one of our recruits being much better then their ranking. I get it, we're still riding the high from last years overachievement of a bunch of kids. So the tendency is to assume that CMA has some sort of special eye for talent. Glad we got Posh, time will tell if he's underrated, overrated or rated right where he should be.
