Scott - to give a perspective

Cannot access Rivals 2000 rankings, but RSCI aggregated rankings were; Andre Brown 11, Imari Sawyer 18. https://www.basketball-reference.com/awards/recruit_rankings_2000.html

2003 Rivals.com rankings; Wesley Green 44, Tyler Smith 59, Sammy Mejia 98, Zo Thompson 128 - https://n.rivals.com/prospect_rankings/rivals150/2003

2005 Rivals.com rankings: Wilson Chandler 44, Rashad Woods 48, Jabari Currie 128 - https://n.rivals.com/prospect_rankings/rivals150/2005

2007 Rivals.com rankings: Mac Koshwal 18, Dar Tucker 45 - https://n.rivals.com/prospect_rankings/rivals150/2007

No, not the best class in 20 years, but nonetheless impressive that a dozen years removed from postseason play with a retread coach we can land an above average class.

The problem with the poll, as I see it, is that it is not multiple choice. My answer is no... not best in 20 years. Which class is better? Could make an argument that each of the classes i listed were better.

2007 was top heavy (Dar and Mac), but is Oscar better than the fillers of Bizoukas, Stula, Obi, Poscic?
2003 was balanced, with 4 top 150 guys.
2000 had just 2, but Imari and Andre or Weems and Jacobs... easy call.
2005 had Woods and Chandler better ranked than Weems and Jacobs and Currie (ranked top 125 or Lopez who is perhaps top 200)?

However, seen multiple 'journalists' reference it as best class in 20 years. Perhaps best class considering the circumstances in 20 years, but best overall in 20... No from me.

Ok - but if you go based upon the known class right now, is it best class in 20 years? If agreement / disagreement with that statement is contingent on a complete class, then would you agree making a statement that this is the best class in 20 years is a faulty statement?

Not best in 20 years.   I would say best since the Tucker and Koshwal class.  So best in 10 years.

Not sure how anyone can argue that this is the best in 20 years.  Although I know the other site is claiming that. 

Its a great class though and I am very excited about it.   Add in Hall and it gets even better. 

Add in another top 100 kid... and its special.   Even with Shannon though I dont think its as good as Sawyer and Brown(Mcdonalds All American) pre college results.

It could prove to be the best, but not pre college.

2000 and it's not even close.  Brown was a McD's AA and Imari would have been if he played anywhere other than King.
