Probably sitting in a dark room somewhere breaking down Dan's inability to draw up an in bounds play under the basket or re-calculating Munford's efficiency numbers to try and figure out why he just got an NBA deal.

And if you notice, this says we have 4 commits. It's updated for Adams, I believe, but they don't even have a profile for the criminally underrated Amir Harris yet. That will change when they do their next update, and our score will go up (not sure if our ranking will, depending on what other programs do in the meantime).

They have Amir. They only count 3 star and above. We have four commits that are 3 & 4 star.

Exactly. And the 5 star scores the highest, 4 star next, of course and 3 star next. 1 star and 2 star do not get included.

Note to Bill Koch--there is nothing to argue about in ranking this URI recruiting class to any other one in the history of the school. After following bball at URI for over 50 years I can firmly state that this class is the BEST!

Right I get all that. I guess I could have said what I said more clearly. They haven't rated Harris yet. He has no rating and no ranking. They've created a page for him. When the next rankings update comes out, he will be ranked, probably as a mid-level three star with a score in the high 80s. So when that happens, the class's ranking will improve.

The headline was weak. Not "URI gets ESPN Top 100 Commit". Just, Oh well, URI gets a top power forward. Lame.

Class rankings will change once more guys commit...so too early to say where we will land. But he could have said "URI locks up highest rated recruiting class ever with Brendan Adams commitment"

We are, right now, the #15 best recruit class in the nation. But yeah, fake news and all that. Let's wait to see if it changes before we report it. I get it.

For sure it will be Top 25, just a matter of where.
Koch is saying that VCU's 2015 class was ranked 24th nationally, and that was the highest rated A10 class in modern era.
We will beat that for sure.

That can change in 1 hour and it is from 247. Not exactly well known in the general public.
It will change when the undeclared Top 100 players commit.
Typically recruiting class rating is stated after the recruits sign their National Letter of Intent in November.
Let’s just enjoy this instead of complaining about headlines in ProJo.

I don't know how often we have to repeat this ... reporters don't write the headlines. Also, there's a space limitation. Also, it's not the projo's job to put asses in the seats.

To put some perspective around the current recruiting class rating:
1) 22 out of Top 50 recruits haven’t declared - including 15 five stars
2) 37 out of Top 100 recruits haven’t declared - 15 five stars & 22 four stars

The higher recruits (4 & 5 star) carry way more weight in class ratings than 3 stars.

It’s hard for me to read articles when in the 1st paragraph they talk about how we lost to Baylor in the 2nd round.

These sites are ever more becoming fan run, they don’t proofread anything, but they feel the need to act like they’re a part of what’s going on. It’s sad

I did not think the first couple of lines from the ProJo article were all that lame:

"What could arguably be the premier recruiting class in the history of the Rhode Island men’s basketball program is now complete.

Baltimore guard Brendan Adams verbally committed to the Rams courtesy of a Sunday evening post on his personal Twitter account, making it five pledges and all scholarships filled for coach Dan Hurley before the leaves had a real chance of changing colors this fall."
