I know there tends to be

I know there tends to be group think with this stuff, but Jordan Nwora and Markis McDuffie really stand out to me. McDuffie probably will need to go to Portsmouth because Wichita State lost eight of their nine leaders in minutes from last year, and his season was slowed last year by a stress fracture in his foot. It is easy to lose sight of the fact that McDuffie is really good. He is 6' 8" and longer than that, athletic, plays on both ends, and is 39 percent from three while taking 6 per. As for Nwora, I thought was just going to be the silver lining in a bad Louisville season, especially after they got thumped by Kentucky, but they are 4-1 in ACC play. 20-7-2 in ACC games won't stay under the radar for long, and 41 percent from three on nearly 6 per will perk up some ears as well. He is also vastly improved defensively from last year. He may very well return for his junior year, but I think he is a much more viable prospect than he gets credit for at the moment.

Yes Nwora is very impressive.

Yes Nwora is very impressive. Plays very smart and is very efficient with his moves and his shots. He also is a good athlete, and has a very smooth stroke that will definitely trasnlate to the pros. He'd be a perfect fit to a team like the Nets, who are in need of a good shooting, smart stretch 4.

No, I don't follow you on

No, I don't follow you on YouTube and I don't post videos.

I doubt McClung comes out this year but if he does I think it will be because some team in that 15-20 range likes him.

When I was typing this out, the tiers looked right, but not when I posted it.

That Jarrett Culver tier has the most depth in the draft. Teams picking in this range should basically go for fit.

Hunter through Reddish is the toughest for me... I have those guys as part of 3 tiers but it might just be one.

Still, I think guys like Culver, Hayes, and Samanic are in a lower tier.

I can honestly see teams gunning for "need" outside the top 5: Zion, RJ, De'Andre Hunter, Morant, and Nassir Little.

I don't think Little goes higher than 5, but I don't think he goes lower than that 15-25 range.

I think De'Andre Hunter is going to move up. Sort of a "known quantity" if you fail to get Zion Williamson or RJ Barrett or just aren't 100% sold on Ja Morant.
