    I agree with larrys080. I wrote yesterday after the ESPNU press conference that he has his priorities in place. I haven't seen nor heard a high schooler speak, act, and carry himself like he did. His parents are solid and well-grounded, and Jabari grew up in a positive environment. He has all of the skills. Time will tell if the's the best.

    If this kids press conference is any indication he has a chance to be one of the great freshmen in ACC history! He has his head screwed on straight!

    you will just have to figure out how vastly overrated he is.

    Several outlets have indicated that he is vastly over-rated.

    I predict the offensive production will primarily be Sulaimon, Hood, Parker, Jones, and Cook. Jefferson, Semi and Marshall could also get in the mix. With all of that firepower returning, I'm wondering where Murphy and Dawkins fit in. Practices are gonna be absolute battles.

    Unlikely but not impossible. Lucky for him that he shouldn't have to be the offensive focus on the team. A situation similar to Grant Hill's freshman year.

    I am one to temper any type of expectation...especially on an unproved commodity, but I can not remember the last time I saw this much hype around a guy.
