This kid is already 6’5”. He may not be a PG by the time he’s in college!

Archie got in early on with McKinley Wright and it paid off (temporarily) until he took the job at Indiana. However, this is an entirely different situation. McKinley blew up and everybody else jumped on the bandwagon, even P5 schools like Minnesota. Ramel Lloyd Jr. is like a Tre Jones from Apple Valley High School in St. Paul, MN. the #1 PG in the class of 2018 who is going to Duke! Both started getting notoriety in the 7th grade and, unlike McKinley Wright, everybody (all the P5 schools) started to follow their progress at an early age.


I watched all of Ramel Lloyd's you tube videos and, believe me, he is worthy of being rated as the #1 PG in the class of 2022! If Anthony Grant pulls a rabbit out of the hat and gets this kid the A-10 in 2022 better watch out!

Here's a dumb question that I think I know the answer to: The star rating is not in comparison to other freshman, right? He's a two star right now, which is awesome for a freshman? In other words, a 2 star frosh is likely to be a 4-5 star by the time he is a senior?

Thumbs up Ya gotta give AG and Staff a Hi FIVE

We may not get these HI Profile players but the UD coaches don't seem phased by this one bit.

If you want to catch the big fish you have to put the line where the BIG FISH are, not into the Goldfish Pond in the backyard.

Of course a great fisherman always has plenty of lures and lines placed around various fishin' holes to hedge his chances ...

I'd say go get them AG and Staff.

And a really great fisherman lands a big one in the boat now and then.

Yes it is which means they need to get in even earlier....Obviously, UD feels like they can at least make a solid impression on him or they would pull an Archie and feel they have no chance..Or UD needs to at least establish a presence with that coach, school, area or all three... Definitely a method/ madness as to why they are going after him...

He had a great two years at OU (first team all-MAC) and then had a great seat on the bench at Michigan. He averaged 15.9 and 15.5 points and 6.5 and 7.9 assists at OU.

...and they were still pretty bad. I'm an OU alum, but the MAC is not what it used to be. To be fair, guess I meant that they were pretty bad without him. He made them average.

Figure maybe 20 kids a year ever get the chance to play in a national championship game. Over fifty years that is 1000 kids. That is elite company and an experience so few ever get to enjoy. Yes, he only played 3 or 4 minutes but I'm guessing he is not unhappy with the choice he made last year.

just shows you how thelevel of quickness and competition changes another division or two higher. He did it for some reason, and i suspect he ain't too unhappy about it.

I think Archie offered current Butler senior center Nate Fowler during (not before) his freshman year at Moeller. Would need to check posts from 7 years ago to confirm.
