Yeah, was going to point out the Garland error as well. He was a top 5 pick and made the AS Game. I would also say stating that making the team automatically makes you a top 15 player lacks a little nuance too. If you have the 2 best scoring guards in the country already on the roster, you’d probably rather grab an elite role player (what Ayo was on that team) than the 3rd best scoring guard. I think Ty is probably in a similar spot where he’s not a scorer so he can do all the little things well while the stars do the star things. Landing the “little thing” guys that play 3-4 years in college is still a great formula though. Much easier to recruit those USA players and develop scorers than consistently recruit the most talented scorers every year.
